Senator Olujimi reacts to reports that she directed her aide to slap National Assembly staff

Senate Deputy Minority Whip, Senator Biodun Olujimi, PDP, Ekiti South has denied the reports that she was slapped by a staff of the National Assembly, just as she said that at no time did she ask her aide to slap anybody.

There were reports on Monday that there was drama at the new wing of the Senate complex in Abuja after Senator Olujimi directed her aide to “slap” a member of Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, PASAN, for riding in the same elevator with her. The reports said the staff however slapped the senator in return and not her aide.

But speaking with Journalists on what happened, Senator Olujimi said, “I went for a public hearing and I understood that there was another meeting upstairs so I got into a lift, yes it was a staff lift and I thought that everyone should be able to stay in it and my security stood in front of me.

“Some gentleman and women came in and were abusing him, asking why he will shield anybody, get out this is our lift. One of them just pushed him and then they had altercation, I just came out and told them that it was wrong and that is what happened.”

When asked if she asked her aide to slap somebody, Senator Olujimi said, “Could I have done that, is it possible, how can I ask anybody to slap. The boy came, and they brought him and I told him he should go because he knew that he didn’t do well. You didn’t do well because you were the one that slapped him. I didn’t even say a word all through because I stood at the back.

“It wasn’t my business it was the business of the security man. Yes I was in the staff lift. But who says we cant go in staff lift. When I see people standing outside in distinguished senators lift, I also tell them to come in because I believe that is the way it should be. How could I have slapped anybody at my age, and level. That is not possible.”
