Special Adviser to Nigeria’s Senate President on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu says the allegation raised during plenary today by Senator Ali Ndume linking Senate President Bukola Saraki to the importation of vehicle lacks basis as it was outright falsehood.
Mr Olaniyonu said from the facts and documents about the seized vehicle, it is obvious that the Senate President has nothing to do with the importation of any vehicle.
“A supplier was engaged by the Senate to supply a vehicle. While transferring the vehicle between Lagos and Abuja, it was impounded by the Customs. We believe that is an issue between the supplier and the Customs because the Senate has not taken delivery. So, why is somebody trying to drag in the name of Saraki into the issue.
“The documents on the vehicle are there for the general public to view and make their conclusions. Now, that the matter has been referred to the Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions, all the facts will be out”, Olaniyonu said.
