As a legislator, I have only what I earn; nothing extra. I still have a law firm which proceeds I use to supplement my earnings as a legislator. How many of those who say I dont give (money) know the number of children I am paying school fees for?. No temptation of what I give will make me come to the public and publish the names of people I have given to. The God who sees the giving in secret rewards openly.

Meanwhile, it is not over until it is over. I am still at the senate. We have built infrastructure. Nobody went and sold his father’s land to come and build the roads and the flyover. The money that was used to do these things came from the federal government, and we deserve to know how much was expended and we deserve the change. We hope all these figures will be put in the handing over note”change. We hope all these figures will be put in the handing over note”
