    Excellent piece, Professor Jibrin. Our NASS is an organised racket and anti-social conspiracy. No other better time than now to smash it, and push through radical reforms if Buhari is really sincere and serious about fighting corruption in Nigeria. Alas, I fear this rotten mess would soon be another forgotten dark spot in our inglorious and shameful national journey.
