BLESSING TAMUNO FABIKA

As far as I am concerned, this is being "penny wise, pound foolish;" sixty-six lawyers defending one man? He is going to pay these lawyers and we are talking about curbing waste in the country .This is 100 per cent waste. It is not needed now.

I understand as Senate President he wants to get a team of lawyers. But five lawyers would have been okay.

When I heard the news I was furious. I also heard six Senior Advocates of Nigeria, SANs, accompanied him. Our SANs are losing their respect in this country by being tossed to and fro by politicians.

The Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT does not have the jurisdiction to oversee this case in the first place. So why take these steps? Or is he guilty as charged?
