Evil thrives in the absence of peace. Impunity starred rule of law in the face, which means there can never be development. Peace is the only ingredient needed to facilitate progress and development in a sane society where rule of law is seen as the only proponent for state progress.

The insecurity in the country hit another dimension on Wednesday, 18th April, 2018 at the plenary session of the Senate at the National Assembly where some unidentified thugs were led into the hallowed chamber by a suspended lawmaker, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege representing Delta Central. The chamber was stripped and ripped off of her dignity. The National Assembly is an arm of government under the Federation of Nigeria that has been imbued with the constitutional power to legislate and carry out oversight functions for the betterment of the country. Its a thing of shame to see the highest lawmaking chamber to be defiled in the market square by infidels of law.

The incident shows
evidently that the Nigeria state is not safe to live in. If the National Assembly can be raped and violated like this, then, nowhere is safe in this country. This attack is an affront on our Democracy. It states that the security apparatus, and outfit in this country is a total failure. It is a collective failure of a system of government. The National Assembly is a body that’s expected to uphold Constitution, law and order, but its so unfortunate that its the haven for rogues and louts in our society. Its a thing of shame to see a suspended lawmaker approach a chamber where he was suspended from without carrying out his suspension. This shows the level of impunity been carried out by this locust and dishonorable charlatans.

The drama scripted out on the floor of the house is a pointer to the fact that Nigeria is a failed state. It confirmed that we living in a jungle where there’s no law. For the first I’m ashame to be a Nigerian. I watched in dismay as our sign of authority was carted away in a commando style. We’re living in a jungle!
.
Who did this to us? How did we found ourselves in this mess? Where do we go from here? These are few of the questions that we have to answer. What’s the way forward. In a sane clime, I expect a thorough investigation into the show of shame that erupted on the floor of the house. Immediate arrest of Omo-Agege, and which has been effected. We must get to the root of this. We can’t continue to be subjected to national disgrace. We are aware of the political undertone that has clouded and which surround the whole issue..
.
Before, we can get it right, we must sacrifice one for the sake of many. We must do the right thing. We must stay off of politics.
.
What next?
