Deputy Minority Whip and PDP Senator representing Ekiti South in the National Assembly, Senator Biodun Olujimi, has revealed that she paid her way to emerge senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, hence she must benefit from the controversial vehicles bought by the leadership of the senate of the senators.
Besides benefiting from the multi-million naira vehicles, she said she must also assent to the ongoing amendment being sought for the Code of Conduct Tribunal, a bill being sponsored by Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, PDP Delta North.
Senator Olujimi in her phone text conversation with a member of her constituency, Kayode Adebiyi, turned down the plea of Adebiyi to reject the multi-million naira cars bought at double price and not partake in the amendment being sought to the Code of Conduct Tribunal Act.
Adebiyi texted Senator Olujimi, “Don’t support amendment of Code of Conduct Tribunal and Administration of Criminal Justice because of one man. Don’t take that car, people are suffering and you guys want to ride jeeps. You represent me in Ekiti and we are watching.”
Senator reportedly replied him, “If you voted, it was not free, I paid every inch of the way. Get a job and earn a living so you don’t continue issuing threats that you can’t enforce and you don’t keep invading the privacy of other people. Only dirty people do that.”
A screenshot of the alleged text message from the Senator has been circulating on social media and was trending on Twitter on Tuesday, April 19, 2016. See it below:
