“Abdullahi Adamu is a distinguished senator and an elder statesman . There are some things that some of my colleagues cannot say but I am not used to holding back what is the truth.
“When we resumed as senators , when we assumed office , senator Ahmed Lawan tendered the sum of 70 million naira to the 8 th senate that is , that 70 million naira was monies gathered by northern senators from the 7th senate .
“So it was handed over to the 8th senators from northern Nigeria under the 8th senate .
“The rumours going round whether it is true but I believe most of the senators know is the fact there were allegations that some monkeys raided the farm house of some of the executives in northern senators forum and carted away some of these monies .
“I think this country is becoming a huge joke , first of all it was the rodent that drove away the president and we now have snakes consuming about N36 million, and now you have monkeys, ” he said.
