Sitting Pretty Lawmakers at the National Assembly

Sitting Pretty Lawmakers At the National Assembly: The More You Look the Less You See

There are many lawmakers at the The National Assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria who are what we can call sitting pretty senators and representatives, because the more we look at them, the less we see of what they have achieved for their respective constituencies.

How many of them can show us what they have done for their constituencies so far?
There is nothing like constituency allowance. There is no such thing. It exists only in the imagination of the public. 
~ Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba
Whether there are constituency allowances or none, lawmakers elected by their people to represent them at the National Assembly must contribute to the sustainable development of their constituencies without apologies and regrets for their failures. 
Constituencies have the constitutional rights to recall lawmakers who failed to represent them. But many have failed to do so, because they have benefited from political bribes of these corrupt politicians whose selfishness and greed for power have made them to disregard their constituencies.
