Video: "You Are The Head Of The National Assembly, Stop Kneeling Down In Abuja"- Aisha Tells Lawan

A popular human rights activist and convener, "Bring Back Our Girls", Aisha Yesufu has accused the Senate President, Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan of leading a rubber-stamped Senate House. This accusation was made by Aisha Yesufu during a protest organized to stop the passage of Section 50(2) of the amended Electoral Bill. Aisha Yesufu while addressing the press accused the Senate President of not doing enough to ensure that the legislative arm operate independently of the Executive arm of government. She however called on the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan to make Nigerians proud by refusing the passage of the new Section 50(2) of the Electoral Bill today. Here is an extract of what she said, "If not, for one thing, give Nigerians a credible election. So that whenever we talk about elections in Nigeria, we will remember the 9th Assembly. Lawan, you are the head of the National Assembly, be the head and stop being the tail. The legislative arm of government is an arm on its own. There is separation of power, there is independence. Stop doing "boi-boi". Stop kneeling down in Abuja", she said.
