DSS blocks entrance to National Assembly as Senators attempt removing Saraki | BellaNaija

The Department of State Services (DSS) on Tuesday blocked all entrances into the National Assembly, barring opposition senators from making their way in.

Videos shared on social media showed the DSS officials holding the fort at the entrance while the opposition senators tried to make their way in.

The staff of the National Assembly were also according to Premium Times turned back.

Premium Times reports that 30 pro-Buhari Senators met with the director general of the DSS, Lawal Daura, overnight.

The meeting, and the siege, are said to be to aid the pro-Buhari senators from removing Bukola Saraki who defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from his role as Senate President.

      So, are you suggesting that a wedding doesn’t count or concern someone’s future? Do you think people don’t have lives to live or that they exist for your benefit?

      You think people must always have their lives interrupted by the domino effects caused by others (*plenty of edits made here*)?

      Maybe you have not seen people get married and give birth in a war zone or maybe you assume the problem you are facing as a N20k minimum wage society is more complex than it actually is.

      Maybe you would use being stock there as a punishment as well.

    When I saw ‘DSS blocks entrance to National Assembly’ first thing that crossed my mind was “Ah, did they receive intel on a bomb or something?” until I saw the rest of the headline and I reminded myself that this is Nigeria. Really sick and really sad.

    The biggest influence Accountants and Lawyers have on the N20k minimum wage society is at this legislative body.

    They have more influence here than they have in their bedroom and bathroom combined.

    The first step for any serious President that wants to move the country forward and resort balance, is to put that power in-check by reviewing every single piece of legislation concerning private enterprises and remove the monopoly held by Lawyers and Accountants against the people..

    They have systematically/effectively written a Slave Act, which enslaves every single person to their profession and strips people of their inalienable rights.

    The rest of what you see in the N20k minimum wage society is just the domino effect of that.
