House of RepsThe House of Representatives, yesterday, described former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s letters to the leadership of the National Assembly, accusing the lawmakers of greed, corruption and insensitivity to the plight of Nigerians in the face of dwindling revenue, as misdirected, saying they would not be distracted from performing their constitutional duties.

The former president had written the letters to the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki and House of Reps Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, in reaction to the plan by the federal lawmakers to purchase 469 vehicles worth N4.7 billion for oversight functions.

Speaking at the National Assembly weekly briefing, Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Abdulrazak Namdas, said they hold Mr. Obasanjo in high esteem, his letters might have been meant for the legislative assemblies under his administration, not the current 8th Assemblies.

“We have tremendous respect for the former President. We don’t want to be distracted by letters. Probably the letter is not meant for the 8th Assembly because we have cued in with President Muhammadu Buhari. I think the letter is meant for the 4th or 5th Assemblies. It was misdirected”, the Reps’ spokesman said.
