As indicated by Ereyi-Tobi, "I have listened mindfully through the entirety of your entries, yet I simply need to reveal to you a certain something, you came here to deceive the parliament, and you are sworn to tell the truth. That is the thing that you have done intentionally. 

"You chose to simply come here and misdirect the parliament. I need to put it to you that your accommodation and all the annexures, 8,9,10 and 11 are deceiving. 

"Prior to at that point, you said you have no connection of any agreement among yourself and NDDC, your activity is simply to direct, however correspondences show you have been favoring measurable reviews and agreements."
