The 39-year-old who has been exposing frauds perpetrated in the House by its leadership after his sack as Appropriation Committee chairman, said he has turned an activist on his twitter handle.

“Those who keep saying why now should realize that for every situation like this to occur, there must be a trigger, however, it looks! “I woke up mid night yesterday to pray and suddenly realized I have become an accidental activist. This is noble and there is no going back!

“I am a product of the establishment but something in me has never been comfortable. I’m so glad that by September 9, my 40th birthday, everybody would have known where I stand for the rest of my life; rural agriculture and fight against corruption, especially in the NASS.

“When a new speaker emerges and the other principal officers are replaced, I will write to the presiding officers of both chambers to commence a radical internal reform in the entire NASS beyond budget to cover performance assessment, running cost and allowances, investigations, etc.

“If the reform so done in NASS is not made public latest by December, I shall take it up and lay before the general public even if I am alone. The idea is to do a clean up, flush out corruption and corrupt members so that in 2019 only corrupt-free people who want to serve will come in. God Almighty knows I am not perfect but as I approach 40 years in September, I have always wondered what is it that I can live and die for.”
