Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, on Friday berated his colleagues over their voting pattern on the ongoing constitution amendment.
In a post on his Facebook page, the lawmaker maintained that his colleagues “feared more of what will befall them than what will befall the country.”
He wrote, “My observation during the constitutional amendment is that many parliamentarians didn’t vote in line with their conscience or national interest; most voted in line with their sectional, religious, ethnic or political interests.
“Many are first more interested in preserving their mini thrones of power than saving the country or making it better. They fear more of what may befall them than what may befall their country.
“Consequence is the compass of their thumb.”
