He disclosed this while speaking to State House correspondents after he met with Osinbajo behind closed-doors on Wednesday, August 8.

“To use security agencies to try to prevent lawmakers from doing their normal legislative functions is wrong. But I have to salute the acting President for taking immediate action to save the situation. The National Assembly is a very important institution and we must not embarrass ourselves and allow foreigners to view us as undemocratic,” he said.
