The Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, has clarified that he is testifying in the ongoing case of the alleged forgery of the senate standing rules as a member of the Unity Forum that drew the attention of the police to the matter.
Ojudu, a member of the 7th Senate, said yesterday that he was testifying not in his capacity as President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide, but as a member of the Unity Forum.
He said the rules were not amended when he was in the senate.
“So, tampering with the rules by the current senate was seen as a misnomer by us and that was why we petitioned the police. The statement we did to the police on the matter predated my appointment and that of Senator Ita Enang. It will, therefore, be preposterous for anyone to classify me as representing the presidency on the matter”, he said.
