He recently this at a plenary while ruling on a point of order raised on the matter by Senator Sabi Abdullahi, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, anyone who is blaming the lawmakers is simply ignorant because the Federal Capital Development Authority is in charge of the maintenance of the structures in the National Assembly premises.
He added that the leadership of the National Assembly have been speaking with Buhari on the need to rehabilitate the federal parliament, and this is proof that their suspicions were right.
His words, “The fact that there was a leakage to me, is a clear testimony, confirmation and vindication of the position the national assembly took initially.”
“Everyone knows that this place is overdue for rehabilitation. We went to see Mr President and he was gracious and he asked us to meet with FCTA, the owners of the building.”
“Myself, the speaker, the late chief of staff and Minister of Finance met to look for money for the rehabilitation of the national assembly. When the N37 billion was approved it was not a national assembly budget, it was an FCDA budget.”
“If this place leaks, we are not holding our democracy with the respect it has. We expect the press to inform the people responsibly.”
“This house is the house of Nigerians. It belongs to Nigerians and it deserves to be rehabilitated.”
