Obasanjo Remains Father Of Corruption – Reps Fire Back
The House of Representatives has said that it maintains its earlier position that former President Olusegun Obasanjo is the father of corruption.
It made the position in a statement yesterday by its Chairman, Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Abdulrazak Namdas, which is response to the latest attack on the National Assembly by Obasanjo.
The House of Reps noted that its response had already been “fully captured” in a position the House took in 2016 that the former President remained the “grandfather of corruption in Nigeria.”
Obasanjo, while addressing his audience at a forum in Minna, the Niger State capital on Monday described constituency project as nothing but corruption.
The House said attacking the National Assembly was Obasanjo’s pastime, a reason it took a position in 2016 to reply him “comprehensively and close the chapter.”
Namdas added, “We won’t respond to any corruption allegations by Obasanjo against us anymore.
“We have replied him enough and our position remains what we said earlier. It has not changed.
“I refer you to our comprehensive position on Obasanjo in 2016. That is still our position.”
