Chairman, Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Otunba Dino Melaye, today reacted to the letter written by ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo to Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, describing it as “a misplacement of anger.”

While insisting that Obasanjo’s regime exposed the National Assembly to corruption and easy money, Melaye (APC Kogi West), in a statement he personally signed, said he expected the former president to have forgiven all those who “defrauded him in 2007, those who collected his money and refused to implement the 3rd term agenda.”

Continuing, Melaye said: “I have tremendous respect  for president Olusegun Aremu Okikiola Obasanjo. Elder statesman, respected pan Africanist and committed patriot. I went through the letter written to all Senators and members of the House of Representatives. The letter I can see is a misplacement of anger.

“Our leader is mistaking the 8th National Assembly as the same Senate Assembly that defrauded him in 2007: Those who collected his money and refused to implement the 3rd term agenda. I appeal to Baba that we are not the ones please. After 9 years of that bribery saga, the first of its kind, I expect forgiveness to have taken place.

“There was the case of bribery introduced by the Obasanjo’s regime in the desperate attempt to remove Speaker Ghali Umar Na’abba from office then. In fact, there was open display of that bribery money on the floor of the house. That government exposed the National Assembly to corruption and easy money. I hope this is not in an attempt to cover up and distract attention from the Halliburton and Siemens corruption allegations.

“While I am against corruption anywhere in Nigeria, I will not support accusations based on anger and vindictiveness. The 8th Senate should also look inwardly and purge herself of all the deliberate misgivings of the past. Nigeria must work and we must support the anti corruption stand of the Muhammadu Buhari’s Administration. God bless Nigeria.”
