When it comes to Africa, the citizens are of the view that politicians are very corrupt and do not show concern when their people are suffering. But the Senator for West Constituency of the Kogi State in Nigeria, Hon Smart Adeyemi has demonstrated that we still have some politicians in Africa who thinks about the welfare of the people. It will be very difficult to get his type of honesty among our parliamentarians in Ghana. The passion and anxiety he speaks for his people are unmatched.
Smart Adeyemi has been captured in a video speaking against the government of Nigeria with much anger, frustration and anxiety. Checking the video very well, it appears they were in their National Assembly and deliberating how people in Nigeria are being killed in all parts of the country. The Senator couldn't believe what is happening in Nigeria so told the government that if they (the leaders) cannot serve the people, they have to stay home.
He said "We must look for foreign support to save this nation. This is my position, Mr President. They are killing people in the east, west, south and north. We should shut down the National Assembly if we cannot serve the people of this country. If we cannot save the people we should stay in our homes. Our country is bleeding and people are hungry; people are in poverty, there is no food for people to eat. People are dying everywhere and we cannot pretend. It is better we are not here".
Smart seems to believe that the country has collapsed and the leaders need to step aside. The most interesting part of the issue is some Nigerian citizens agree with him. According to them, their President, Mohammed Buhari seems not to care about whatever happens to the ordinary citizen.
