Former, Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo on Monday stated that the

current allegation of Budget padding by Hon. Abdulmumuni Jibrin confirms

his earlier assertion that members of the National Assembly are robbers

and rogues.
Obasanjo said what the country needs right now are men and women of

integrity, warning President Mohammadu Buhari to beware of men and women

who constitutes the National Assembly.
While speaking with State House correspondents  at the Presidential Villa,

after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari,  Obasanjo advised Buhari

to be vigilant.
He said; “Well, if you said that I have said it in the past and if there

are people who didn't believe what I said ‎in the past then, you can now

see that what has come out confirms what I said in the past. Then what I

said in the past is what I will say now.
Obasanjo who was reacting to the current counter between the Speaker,

House of Representatives, Honourable Yakubu Dogara and the sacked Chairman

of Appropriation Committee, Honourable Abdulmumin Jibrin said; “It's not

question of investigation, we should get men and women of integrity in the

place and the President should be very vigilant, whatever should not pass

should not pass.”
Obasanjo, had earlier in January,2016, claimed that the National Assembly

and State Houses of Assembly were filled with armed robbers and rogues.

On the purpose of his visit, Obasanjo said he came bearing messages to the

President.
He said: “Not too long ago, I was in Liberia and Gambia and I have

messages these two countries will want me to deliver to the president.

“Also, only yesterday I came back from Seychelles Island where I attended

this year's Annual General meeting of Africa Export Development Bank. And

there are aspects of the proceedings that I think I should update the

President,” he added
