The Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Itse Sagay, has described the Nigerian Senate as “a merciless and ruthless organisation” with no value.

Mr. Sagay who also added that the lawmakers behaved ”like locusts” said this on the sidelines of the Hallmarks of Labour Foundation Reunion Symposium held at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, NIIA, Victoria Island, Lagos, on Thursday.

Mr. Sagay, a Professor of Law, has in recent times lambasted Nigerian federal legislators over the allowances enjoyed by the senators and House of Representatives members.

Speaking in Lagos on Thursday, Mr. Sagay said Nigerian senators should not be addressed as “distinguished” because they have no honour, vision, and integrity.

Earlier, Abdullahi Sabi, the spokesperson of the Nigerian senate, had criticised the utterances of the lawyer, stressing that the Nigerian government lost many corruption cases due to Mr. Sagay failure to function properly as the government’s anti-corruption adviser.

But on Thursday, Mr. Sagay said the senators were simply out to ”totally suck out the blood of Nigeria for themselves because they behave like locusts.”

“They have no mercy, they have no conscience; they simply want to behave like locust just to finish everything within their environment for themselves. That’s totally unacceptable and I’m not going to relent on this thing (criticism),” he said.

“Look at the allowance they take, forget the amount. Why would a whole Senator collect money for his wardrobe? Is he naked? Does a labourer, who is taking just N18,000 a month, get it? He’s the one who needs the money for wardrobe allowance.
