Threat of Arrest: Oluwo replies Lagos assembly

…..says I have nothing to hide

The immediate past Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Mr Olawale Oluwo, has reacted to a threat of warrant of arrest over his alleged non -appearance before the Lagos House of Assembly Committee investigating the administration of former Governor Akinwumi Ambode.

In a letter to the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, a copy of which was sighted by Newsnow, Mr Oluwo stated that that no invitation, oral or written, physical or virtual, was extended to him in person or through a third party, either directly or by substituted means, to any of his official and residential addresses, phone numbers or emails.

The former Commissioner said he served with utmost diligence, integrity and in line with his oath of office. 

“Let it be known that I have absolutely nothing to hide and I am willing and ready to appear before any Committee of the House of Assembly, anytime I receive your invitation to that effect.” The letter stated.

The Right Honourable Speaker

Lagos State House of Assembly

Alausa, Ikeja

Lagos.

Dear Sir,

THREAT OF ARREST TO COMPEL APPEARANCE BEFORE THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY COMMITTEES

On October 10, 2019, the Lagos State House of Assembly, while debating the Reports of its Committees set up to investigate the purchase of 820 buses by the immediate past administration of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, passed a Resolution threatening to issue Arrest Warrants, to compel my appearance before its Committees. The House Resolution, which was made public in the electronic, print and social media, seemed to have concluded that I had willfully or tacitly avoided appearing before the Committees of the House of Assembly. I wish to state categorically that no invitation, oral or written, physical or virtual, was extended to me in person or through a third party, either directly or by substituted means, to any of my official and residential addresses, phone numbers or emails.

I wish to put it on record that I have proudly served MY STATE (Lagos State) with utmost diligence, integrity and in line with my oath of office. Let it be known that I have absolutely nothing to hide and I am willing and ready to appear before any Committee of the House of Assembly, anytime I receive your invitation to that effect.

Please accept the assurances of my highest esteem.

OLUWO OLAWALE WASIU

(Immediate past Commissioner for Energy & Mineral Resources, Lagos State)
