“For the Civil Society talking about why the House is going on recess, well, we are always happy to look at advanced democracies, whether it’s Germany, United States, United Kingdom; we are always happy to compare the Nigerian Legislature to those places.

“As I speak to you, the United States Congress {@congressdotgov} is on annual recess. You won’t hear of legislative hearing or any public hearing.

“Secondly, back home in Nigeria, the judiciary is on its annual recess, but you will not say because there’s a corruption case you will find one court opening and sitting and hearing one corruption case. No, they have one or two courts that are open for administrative purposes, but they are on recess.

“And recess is only two to three weeks to go and then work continues as usual.
