Obasanjo Introduced Money Politics In NASS

The author of a new book, Fourth Republic National Assembly, Dr Austin Uganwa, has traced the introduction of the use of money to curry the favour of the lawmakers in the federal parliament to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
According to the author in the book slated for public presentation on Monday at the Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, the first time money exchanged hands in the Fourth Republic National Assembly was at the inception of the republic in 1999 when Obasanjo moved to stop the Senate Presidency bid of Senator Chuba Okadigbo who was adopted by the leadership of the ruling party at that time, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to emerge as the Senate President.
