There were speculations that he was summoned by President Bola Tinubu regarding the controversy surrounding the suspended Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu.

However, the minister and others scheduled to meet the president on Tuesday were unable to do so, as President Tinubu was engaged in a meeting with a delegation from the Economic Community of West African States.

He stated, “I have to say this; I saw it, and I was shocked because the company in question was a company where I was the director. About five years ago, I had resigned my directorship. Yes, I founded the company 10 years ago. In 2019 when I got to the House of Representatives, when I won the election precisely, I resigned. I resigned on the 4th of February 2019, with a certified true copy of the Corporate Affairs Commission as far back as 2019 to prove this.”
