Otedola VS Lawan Latest Update

The Controversy over the six hundred and twenty million dollar bribery allegation between Chairman of Zenon Oil, Femi Otedola and former Chairman of House of Representatives'Committee on Subsidy, Faruk Lawan entered another twist today as Femi Otedola Protested the decision of the Ethics Committee to hold proceedings in camera.

Otedola, who honored the invitation of the Committee, along with his Lawyer, said it was surprising and curious that this committee has made a u-turn to hold its investigative sittings in-camera particularly in the light of unfolding events.
The Oil magnate also stated he strongly believed that the interest of the public will not be best served if this investigation is held in-camera.
All effort to have his testimony by the Committee proved abortive as he insisted he had nothing to hide and will only speak on this issue when this investigation is conducted in a very transparent manner and the press as well as the general public are allowed to be present at the sittings of this committee from the beginning of its investigation to its conclusion.
