Budget padding scandal confirms my position on NASS – Obasanjo 

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Monday said the ongoing revelation on budget padding in the National Assembly only confirmed his earlier position that lawmakers are “armed robbers and rogues.” He said the best way out of the current mess was to ensure that only men of integrity are elected into the National Assembly.

Obasanjo spoke with State House correspondents shortly after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The former President said he was sure that those who did not believe him when he made his first statement would now do so with the fresh revelation.

Obasanjo had in 2012 described the National Assembly and state Houses of Assembly as institutions filled with “rogues and armed robbers” at an event in Lagos attended by two former heads of state, Yakubu Gowon and Ernest Shonekan.
