He said:

“I call on all security apparatus of government to quickly wade into this matter by inviting Odubiyi to explain whatever role he has played, as well as tell Nigerians how he got into INEC ICT unit, being a commissioner in Lagos State.

 

The masquerade must be unveiled. This unholy alliance that has pushed our country towards precipice must be thoroughly checked and nipped in the bud,”
