The interrogation of the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole by the Department of State Services (DSS), has been described as being in order against the backdrop that he remains a citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and not above the law.
While speaking with Vanguard on the development, the Chairman Senate Committee on Public Accounts, Senator Matthew Urhoghide, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Edo South said,
“Speaking frankly, I do not know the issues that are involved and I cannot even ascertain the authenticity of the story. If it is true and anything has to be considered, no one is above the law.
“Oshiomhole is a citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, he is not above the law. The law should be allowed to take its place and justice must be the order of the day.”
On his part, the Chairman of the South-East Senate Caucus, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe (PDP, Abia South) said, “the spokesperson of Mr. President, Adesina tweeted sometimes ago that the harder they me, the harder they fall. We never knew he was referring to Oshiomhole!!”
Also contributing, Deputy Senate Minority leader, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha said, “We await the outcome because we are conversant with the issues of fraud involved. We will also know when there is a seeming cover up.”
