“I will need to investigate, make appropriate contact with the Committee, get the gist of their investigation and also meet with leadership of the Senate. “Until then, I can’t say anything about it. I don’t want to tell you what isn’t correct”. “It is not correct. I told you I haven’t been in Abuja, I haven’t been around for some time. In fact, I wanted the media to be briefed on Tuesday, I got Committee members to do the briefing on my behalf. I haven’t been around,he said.
“I have been so busy that I didn’t have the time to even check my internet at all. That’s the truth. So, you don’t expect me to cone here and give you incorrect information. That’s the truth. I need to conduct my own investigation, find out and brief you on it later, he added.
