Powerful Nigerians Want to Discredit My Committee, Laments Senator Uzodimma

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Customs, Excise and Tariff and Marine Transport, Senator Hope Uzodimma Tuesday claimed that some powerful Nigerians were all out to rubbish his committee.
Uzodimma claimed that a serving governor was among those behind the plot to discredit his Committee.
In a statement issued by his media consultant, Hon. Duro Meseko, Senator Uzosimm said there were plans to feed fake news stories to the media in a bid to ridicule and paint his committee as corrupt.
The statement claimed that money has been voted for the attack against his committee.
The statement reads: “We wish to draw the attention of Nigerians to a satanic plan by a sitting governor from the North-west region working with some disgruntled federal agencies currently under probe over their role in the infractions at the nation’s ports which had cost the federal government over N30 trillion loss in revenues to launch a massive propaganda in some sections of the media aimed at the discrediting the good works of the committee.
“It may interest Nigerians to know that our investigation has led the federal government to recover not less than N120 billion from some defaulting agencies and more money is being recovered as we speak. So why are some unpatriotic Nigerians indifferent to this laudable achievements by the Senate and are bent on denting the image of members with unreasonable allegations that at best remain laughable?”
The Senator however maintained that his Committee was determined to carry on with its mandate without any distraction.
