National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, has disassociated himself from the invasion of the National Assembly complex by masked personnel of the Department of State Security (DSS) on Tuesday morning.
Oshiomhole in a statement issued by Mr. Yekini Nabena, the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the APC, denied having any connection with the DSS preventing lawmakers and other staff from entering the National Assembly.
The lawmakers including Senator Ben Bruce and Rep. Boma Goodhead, who boldly confronted the DSS officers were later allowed in.
The statement read in part: “Our attention has been drawn to mischievous attempts in some partisan quarters to link Tuesday’s developments in the National Assembly to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
“While the Party is monitoring the developments in the National Assembly like every other concerned Nigerian and stakeholder, there is absolutely no basis for all the false allegations and attempt to blame the APC National Chairman for the development there. It is strictly a legislative matter”.
