Ambode 820 Bus Scam: “I Was Never Invited” – Former Commissioner for Budget

Written by O'News Blog

Mr Olusegun Banjo, the former commissioner for budget during the tenure of the immediate past Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, has dismissed claims that he snubbed Committee set up by the Lagos State House of Assembly.
Banjo claimed that as the commissioner in charge of budget at the time, it is a surprise that he was invited before any committee of the House.
“Though I was not expecting any invitation as I was never part of the Bus Purchase and Implementation Committee set up by the former governor before my appointment as a commissioner, I would gladly have responded to any invitation addressed to me by the House or any anti-corruption groups looking into the matter or any matter concerning the period of my service,” he said.
“I wish to correct the insinuation in the publication that I deliberately avoided the House of Assembly and also to state my readiness to appear before any of its committees as this is the least required of me as a citizen of Lagos State and someone who has occupied a public position in the past,” Banjo concluded.
