He revealed this while he attended a session with Dr. Kale, the Statistician-General of the Federation.
According to him, it is sad that the National Assembly is not allowed to operate as it should and this has affected the progress of the nation.
He added that everyone knows the Committee on Public Accounts is the only committee recognized by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, so the current disputes will never repeat itself.
His words, “I’m only here to observe proceedings and nothing more so just carry on and forget about my presence. As you all know, the Committee on Public Accounts is the only committee recognised by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, so you are all welcome. But again, we have to make sure that what happened yesterday (Monday) in the Senate does not repeat here.
“It is unfortunate that the National Assembly is not allowed to operate as it should. However, I want to assure you that the matter will be resolved within the next 24 hours.”
