He also commended Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, for the bold step in sacking Director-General of Department of State Services, DSS, Lawal Daura.

Speaking to State House correspondents after meeting behind closed-doors with Osinbajo, Governor Ganduje, condemned Tuesday’s invasion of the National Assembly by security agents, saying the legislature must be allowed to operate according to law.

He said: “To use security agencies to try to prevent lawmakers from doing their normal legislative functions is wrong. But I have to salute the acting President for taking immediate action to save the situation.  The National Assembly is a very important institution and we must not embarrass ourselves and allow foreigners to view us as undemocratic.”
