Speaking on Dogara’s statement following his resignation, he said: “Speaker Dogara’s statement was a complete misrepresentation of the facts, false, mischievous, unfair and a calculated attempt to bring my name to disrepute, blackmail, silence and use me as a scape goat,” he wrote on his official Twitter account.
He then claimed that: “My inability to admit into the budget almost N30 billion personal requests from Mr. Speaker and the three other principal officers also became an issue. I have every documented evidence to this effect,” he stated.
He then cautioned President Buhari, urging him to be careful around Dogara. “Mr President must be very careful with him. He wines with Mr. President and dines with Mr. President’s enemies,” he wrote.
Mr President must be very careful with him.
