The sense in Abuja land grab

SIR: One just watched on TV how the Senate committee on the Federal Capital Territory headed by Senator Dino Melaye and other senators including ‘‘I just want to make sense” Senator Murray Bruce at a public hearing, where the administration of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan was exposed for its abuse of office and trust through the sharing and conversion of the Maitama Green Hills in violation of the Abuja Master Plan.

The beneficiaries according to Senator Melaye committee include amongst others ex-President Jonathan, former Petroleum Minister, former Minister Aganga, Secondus, the late Azazi, etc.

However, since the senate committee on the FCT stumbled on this criminal act and a despoliation of the environment in Abuja, the seat of government, by those who swore an oath to uphold the constitution and were saddled with position of responsibility, one is baffled by the continued silence and absence of tweets or Facebook comments on this abuse of office by the Senator who was also a member of the committee.

The puzzle for one and which we must seek answer from our tweeter Senator is that in view of his constitutional responsibility as a member of Nigeria’s upper legislative chamber and his mantra of I just want to make sense, doesn’t this violation of the constitution by Jonathan and his cronies sharing and converting public land for personal use make sense?

Senator, we are waiting?
