  1. All this nonsense was going on while the so-called president of Nigeria looked on? He is a DISGRACE to democracy for allowing such unlawful and illegal take-over of the Assembly. His legacy is set and history will reveal him as one of the worst, if not the worse next to Abacha, president Nigeria has ever had!
