“Ahead of resumption of the House, they are back at work to divert attention from allegations of budget fraud and corruption against Mr Speaker
“It is curious that all the allegations on me are made by faceless or shadow groups,no Member of the House has signed any allegation on me
“I am calling on the relevant authorities to investigate&take decisive action on this latest assault on my person&unveil the real sponsors”.
“I will be reporting these hatchet men to the police&EFCC this morning&my lawyers are taking the necessary legal actions. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
“I urge the public to disregard this latest blackmail as the document in circulation is not worth a toilet paper! Thank you and God bless,” he said.
