I rejected Obasanjo’s N50m bribe – Senator Reveals

Deputy Senate Leader, Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah, on
Tuesday took on former President Olusegun Obasanjo,
over his sweeping statement that all members of the
National Assembly were corrupt.

The former president also reportedly dismissed members
of the National Assembly as lacking in integrity.
Na’Allah in a statement entitled: “I am not corrupt and I
have integrity,” dared Obasanjo to prove a single act of
corruption against him.

The Kebbi South lawmaker reminded Obasanjo that he
rejected his “N50 million inducement to subvert the
Constitution and provide a constitutional framework for
the third term ambition of the ex- president.”
Na’Allah insisted that he was prepared to vacate his seat
as Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria if Obasanjo
could prove a single record of corruption against him.

He said, “My attention has been drawn to a purported
statement attributed to former president Olusegun
Obasanjo where he made a sweeping statement that there
are no men of integrity in the National Assembly.

“I am respectfully taking exception to the statement which
I express the hope is not true.

“To start with, it is not in my character to join issues with
elder statement who have had the privilege of
superintending over the affairs of our great country
Nigeria.

“This exception has become necessary in view of the
enormity of the alleged statement to my person and
integrity.

“If former president Obasanjo can come out with one
proven record of corruption against me as a person I
promised to vacate my seat as a senator of the Federal
Republic of Nigeria.

“For the records I was the only member from Kebbi State
who did not find it worthy at that time to collect the sum
of N50 million as an inducement to subvert the
Constitution and provide a constitutional framework for
the third term ambition of president Obasanjo.

“I find this statement if it is true to be reckless and
terrifying. The implication of the statement is to say that
the entire over 170 million Nigerians have not elected a
single person with integrity among the 469 members of
the National Assembly.

“This is definitely rhapsodic and does not conform to
commonsense and reason.”
