The Arewa Online Publishers also commended the leadership of the 8th National Assembly for resisting sustained blackmail, intimidation and temptation by the executive to become its rubber stamp. Mordecai Ibrahim said, “The 8th National Assembly distinguished themselves and served truly as the people’s Parliament. Nigerians are living witnesses and are proud of majority of the members of the 8th National Assembly for resisting sustained blackmail, intimidation and temptation by the executive to become its rubber stamp.”
