    Nigeria senate, lacks the constitutional power to arbitrarily suspend the job-program, initiated by the minister of state, Festus Keyamo, to recruit 774-low-cadre workers, across the 774-local government councils, throughout Nigeria.
    Our senators, are shameless and selfish ignoramuses who are corrupt-ridden and extremely dented in their blood-stream-DNA, who tried to take-over the low-cadre 774-jobs, provision in the local government councils, all over Nigeria, by fixing their wives, their sons and daughters,cousins and concubines, to benefit from the 774-low-cadre-jobs at local government councils level.
    National Assembly, lacked the constitutional authority to suspend the employment scheme initiated by the federal government. Average Nigerians, are solidly supporting honourable Festus Keyamo. Go ahead to create 774-jobs for the unemployed average Nigerians, in our 774-councils’s level.
