Being educated or having a PHD is not a certificate of intelligence or common sense but it helps to have some because education is certainly a treatment or cure for certain types of arrogance and ignorance which breeds ineptitude. Do you agree?
On this note, I think that our lawmakers must review the statutory academic requirement for holders of public office in Nigeria.
I hear that there are some legislators who have never introduced a single bill in our hallow chambers or contributed to debates because they are stark illiterates. They cannot communicate in English and sometimes need people to explain house proceedings to them. (I do not want to believe this)
If this is true then one wonders how they represent their constituencies and what the future holds for our constitution if the law makers cannot read and understand what they have said or made law for us.
Did they understand that it is now illegal to be gay in Nigeria? Lord in your hands I commit Nigerian type of democracy.
