Nigerian Legislators - When will they start working?

This is rather annoying. When will the legislators in Nigeria ever settle down and perform their constitutional duties. It is rather disgusting that since 1999 two-third of their tenure is being spent on debates about financial scandals and impeachable offenses. Of what good is it to the common man if all the legislator do is changing leadership instead of fulfilling their legislative duties?

I feel it is high time the society tell this so called representatives that the tax payer money being spent on them has to be justified. They must settle down and do the work of legislating for the good of the common man.

Imagine all the efforts, energy, time and money being wasted within their first 100days in office. I am beginning to doubt if they are representing us or their own "belly".
