According to him, “It is very sad that our Democracy has been bastardized with the conduct of those who are supposed to ensure the rule of law and sanctity of justice.

“The speaker without recourse to the Service rules has been operating the commission like a unit of the Assembly.

“Recently, he appointed Mr Olalekan Onafeko on GL- 15 as Clerk of the House whereas, to be appointed as a clerk of the House, you must be a full Director on GL-17.

“Also, today, he appointed another woman, Mrs Raulat Latona on GL-15 to be the Secretary of the Commission, you must also be a full Director on GL-17,” he said.

Mogaji added that he will remain steadfast and allow the law to take its course to protect his integrity following the termination of his appointment.
