The Special Assistant to the President on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, has asked the section of the media, who were part of the stagemanaged drama at National Assembly on Tuesday to apologise to Nigerians.
Onochie, who posted this statement on her twitter handle on Wednesday, noted that facts had already revealed that what was being peddled as gagging of the legislature was indeed the coup by the legislators against themselves.
She wondered how it played out that Senator Ben Muray Bruce of Bayelsa State naturally became the spokesman for the plot while other PDP lawmakers were found drinking whisky inside the National Assembly buildings in celebration of the hatched plot.
“The section of the media who were part of the plot by the PDP & some security agents to stage a Drama at the NASS yesterday, should apologise to Nigerians.
“It has now emerged that while @benmurraybruce played d Publicity Secretary, his friends were drinking whisky INSIDE the NASS,” she said.
Many Nigerians who followed the event have continued to condemn the “unprofessional” disposition of a Lagos-based television station, Channels TV, which misled Nigerians saying from its Abuja studio that the security operatives who mounted guard at the gate of the National Complex allowed only APC lawmakers to enter while blocking PDP lawmakers to enter.
It however turned out to be that the television station lied as no APC lawmaker was around at the complex at the time in question but only PDP lawmakers were.
