Falae decries $3m bribery allegation in House of Reps

By DAYO JOHNSON

AKURE—A former Finance Minister, Chief Olu Falae, yesterday, has decried the bribery scandal rocking the House of Representatives.

Chief Falae consequently called on the anti-graft agencies in the country to begin a probe of the ugly development immediately and bring those indicted to book.

The chieftain of the Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, said this in Akure at the formal inauguration of Ondo State chapter of Association of Professional Bodies of Nigeria.

He asked professional bodies in the country to speak out and condemn the act and other scandals in the National Assembly.

According to him, all those involved in the scam should be identified and necessary clauses be invoked to discipline them.

Falae said: “This nation is in dire need of credible leaders. We cannot afford to leave our country in the hands of charlatans and people of questionable character. Everybody should speak out and condemn this national shame.”

On the occasion, President of APBN, Mr. Segun Ajanlekoko, said the leadership question at all levels remained a major challenge to the attainment of set-goals for the country
