He added that he owes no one any apology over his action.

“Let me state very clearly that i will never ever apologise to anybody in the House of Representative. There is no reason what so ever to apologise I did not commit any offence. I did not abuse my office. For the five years I have served, I have never corruptedly enriched myself”, he wrote.

“In contrast, these are the allegations that I raised against Mr Speaker and others which they have not responded till date.

“The bad news for Speaker and his cabal is despite doing their worst and exhausted their bullets by “suspending” me, it has not in any way

“Despite the “suspension” the fact has not changed that the Speaker conspired with others to commit monumental budget fraud and corruption

“I stand by all the allegations I raised. I wish to state categorically that there is chronic individual & systemic corruption in the House

“It is on strength of such weak institution that Speaker continue to flaunt a fake popularity in the House since many members are culprits.”
