Misau describes Ojudu’s allegation against Saraki as a conspiracy theory

Isah Misau, senator representing Bauchi central, has wondered how Senate President Bukola Saraki would work with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to undermine the Buhari administration.

Misau said this in response to an article, ‘Fifth Columnist in our recent history’, written by Babafemi Ojudu, an aide of the president.

But in a statement on Monday, Misau described Ojudu’s allegation as a conspiracy theory.

“The EFCC’s statement confirms our immediate reaction that both Ojudu and Oshiomhole have been reading from the same conspiracy script,” the statement read.

“Nigerians find it unthinkable that Magu, that the senate refused to confirm — whose EFCC has also prosecuted Saraki for over three years at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) would now turn around and start working for this same Saraki. How is this possible?

“These people think that they can just wake up, think up conspiracy theories and try to sell it to Nigerians, but the public is smarter and more discerning than their shallow fictitious narratives.”

Misau accused Ojudu of indicting the presidency in “such an explicit fashion”.

“In any case, shouldn’t they be ashamed to even claim that the entire internal security institutions in the country are working for someone else other than the person that appointed them? Additionally, at what point did they decipher this? Was it before the siege on the national assembly or after?” the senator asked.

“What this goes to show is that in their desperate bid to blame someone else for their crime and incompetence, these people no longer have a sense of shame.

“In this regard, we hereby reiterate the call for independent judicial panel of inquiry into the invasion. Any other such investigation into the matter would constitute another attempt by these same people to present a biased perspective to the assault on our nation’s democracy and its highest lawmaking body.”
