- The Buhari Media Organisation has condemned the recent visit by some elders of southeast and middle belt to the National Assembly
- The organisation accused these leaders of displaying partisanship during their visit to the senators
- According to BMO, allegations by the elders that the executive arm of government has ignored the National Assembly resolutions are merely advisory
A group has expressed concern over the roles played by leaders of some parts of Nigeria during a visit to the National Assembly.
The group under the aegis of the Buhari Media Organisation alleged that these leaders displayed partisanship during their visit.
BMO claimed that the National Assembly visitors led by a Niger Delta chieftain, Edwin Clark and the national president of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, John Nnia-Nwodo, clearly showed the bias as they took shots on President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement signed by its national coordinator, Austin Braimoh, the BMO said the visit by Clark and others is mischievous.
Braimoh said the allegations by the elders that the executive arm of government has ignored the National Assembly resolutions are merely advisory.
"We believe that time should have healed the wounds, but then again, it is no longer business as usual under Buhari," Braimoh said.
On devolution of power in Nigeria, the BMO said: "Devolution of power that the elders have for years been canvassing, and which is within the powers of the National Assembly to include in the recent constitution amendment process but was rejected.”
NAIJ.com earlier reported that some leaders from the southern and Middle Belt region of the country visited the National Assembly.
These elders met with the Senate president, Bukola Saraki, the deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu and some other lawmakers.
The meeting, NAIJ.com gathered, was aimed at addressing some of the issues currently ongoing in country.
