A member of the House of Representatives from Taraba state was attacked by angry members of his constituency who hurled stones at the lawmaker for allegedly abandoning them for two years, only to show up to present 11 motorcycles and one car to a few people, just because election is around the corner and they are people who will serve as delegates to elect party flag bearers.

Truth be told, we have been dishonest in practically all we do in this nation; selfishness is now a part of us. What exactly have lawmakers been doing with the constituency fund? The case in question clearly shows that these funds are more often that not, fraught with fraud as projects are not done to better the lots of the people despite receipt of the money.

Many lawmakers don't visit their constituencies as was the case in Taraba. They few that visit are more interested in laughable projects, like presenting of wheelbarrows, motorcycles, and other minor items for political reasons.

Thank Goodness that the Nigerian masses are waking up from their long slumber. They are beginning to show their anger and make their position clear to their corrupt leaders. What happened in Taraba state should serve as a warming to all corrupt leaders across Nigeria that the masses are sick and tired of their excesses. The Nigeria masses are gearing up to rewrite their destiny come 2019.

In the meantime, the millions our lawmakers receive as constituency fund should be reviewed and receipted for what they do with it. Their mindless thieving from the public should be checked. If we do not institute better democratic practices, we will continue to move in circles in Nigeria.

 I am using this opportunity to call on law enforcement agencies who are been used by this thieving politicians to understand their obligations to serve and protect the people's and not just the politicians. I indeed see a New Nigeria God been our help.
