Barely 24hours after former President Olusegun Obasanjo attacked the President Muhammadu Buhari led government Abdulrazaq Namdas, Spokesman of the House of Representatives, on Thursday took a shade at the former president describing him as the grandfather of corruption in Nigeria.
Mr. Namdas also alleged at a press briefing held at the NASS complex that Obasanjo has the intention of bringing down President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
Mr. Namdas who read a prepared statement said:”Our attention has been drawn to a statement credited to former President Olusegun Obasanjo at a lecture he delivered recently, wherein, in his characteristic manner accused everybody but himself of corruption.
” He ventured to accuse the National Assembly of Budget padding, accused the House of criminal activities of threatening the life of a “whistleblower”, lampooned constituency projects which he approved as President, ventured to discuss the budget of National Assembly which is highly underfunded?
“The House of Representatives would ordinarily not join issues with the former President as he has held an office that deserves respect and reverence.
“However, because of the material misstatements of facts, outright falsehoods and lies, and mischievous innuendo introduced in his statement, we are left with no option but to correct him.
