Former Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives, Ghali Na’Abba has said he was not invited because of his criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Na’Abba said he was questioned by the DSS for over two hours, saying that he was invited based on misunderstanding of the words he used in the media last week.
He said in the interview that Nigeria is a failed state, adding that citizens have the right to self- determination.
According to him, the DSS questioned him for over two hours and that he still stood by what he said.
“I did not disown anything I said. I will never mince my words. Whatever I see as the truth I say it. And that is what I said in my interview and said during the press conference. And I can never say anything that is not the truth.
“What happened was there were certain words that appeared in my address and interview which needed some clarifications and which clarification, I made.
“We were both satisfied with what happened. We advised one another. The DSS have their own job and their own experience. I too have my own vocation and also have my own experience. And we felt highly enriched by our experiences.
“That is how things are supposed to be. It went successfully. I enjoyed my stay there. I had no problems with the way they received me,” he said.
