This morning, masked and armed operatives of the DSS took over the National Assembly, preventing lawmakers from having access into the National Assembly.
The lawmakers went on a recess that would lapse at the end of September after 15 senators including Dino Melaye defected from APC to PDP.
Though some of the lawmakers have now managed to gain entrance and access to the offices, Nigerians on twitter aren’t happy with the development and they are reacting with the hashtag, ‘#SaveOurDemocracy’.
Dear Pastor @PastorEAAdeboye
Behold what Nigeria has turned into with your spiritual son as the acting President.
He’s a Pastor! You ordained him.
He’s a lawyer but he breaks the law of the land.
Finally he’s a tyrant!
Did you teach him all these?#SaveOurDemocracy
I was just barred by fully armed, masked officers of the DSS from entering the National Assembly (@nassnigeria). “We’re acting on the order from above,” I was told by officers laying siege on the Assembly. All entrances BLOCKED.
Am using this medium to call on d General Overseer of Redeemed Christain church of God, @PastorEAAdeboye to call Pastor Yemi Osinbajo to order now.
He is acting president who want to collapse our democracy.
He is a disgrace to ur Ministry sir & Christians.#SaveOurDemocracy
Buhari has destroyed everything democracy stands for Nigeria! Our lawmakers no longer have access to the National Assembly. They’re being prevented by men of the DSS. This is purely an assault on our democracy.#SaveOurDemocracy @adeyanjudeji @henryshield @segalink @AJEnglish
This is totally unknown to our politics since d inception of democracy in Nigeria,using security operatives to block the National assembly, denying parliamentarians and journalist access to the National Assembly ~ Kola Ologbodiyan #SaveOurDemocracy #SunRiseDaily cc @bukolasaraki
The President is on vacation and the Vice President being a lawyer is the acting President yet the National Assembly is under siege by DSS. We have lost Nigeria. There’s no difference between Buhari and Osinbajo. They both are democracy destroyers. @segalink #SaveOurDemocracy
