    Not once since 2015 has Bukola Saraki seized popular imagination with thought
    process, unlike in other countries where the Senate president is putatively the
    alternative voice of wisdom to the national president’s of the country. But in Nigeria,
    Bukola Saraki, as Senate president, is so empty-headed, crass and vacuous that he
    spews platitude and nonsense. Anyone who’s not read anything Bukola Saraki ever
    uttered for want of thought is better for it. Bukola Saraki does irritate intelligent people
    with his mordant ignorance, besides that he stinks of frauds and thefts.

    Ditto, the Speaker of the Nigerian Speaker of the House of
    Representatives, Mr. Dogara, who’s mucked up by financial scandals
    reported as breaking news in the past months, that he looks more like a
    financial criminal than the equivalent of Congressional Speaker in America –
    who is a leading intellectual light of his Republican party on tax and health
    reforms in the United States. Whereas, in Nigeria, because of the politics of
    thefts there, the worst thieves float to the top like flotsam and jetsam, whilst
    clean and honest men – imbued with intellectual clarity of thought – are further
    made to sink by an illiterate electorate which un-erringly vote in utter ignorance
    for this continuous rule of thieves in Nigeria.
