Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has launched an attack on the country's lawmakers calling them "a bunch of unarmed robbers.

Obasanjo made this known during a book launch at the University of Ibadan which also had other former government officials in attendance.

Obasanjo was even more critical of members of the nations's House of assembly, describing them as a bunch of unarmed robbers. 
He said "The way we are going about spending all our revenue to pay overhead, we will not develop.

"And we will have ourselves to blame. Ninety percent of revenue is used to pay overhead, allowances, salaries and not much is left for capital development.

"It is even worse for the National Assembly. They will abuse me again but I will never stop talking about them. They are a bunch of unarmed robbers.

"They are one of the highest paid in the world where we have 75 percent of our people living in abject poverty.

"They will abuse me tomorrow and if they don't, maybe they are sleeping. The behaviour and character of the National Assembly should be condemned and roundly condemned,"" the former president added.
