Chairman, Zenon Petroleum, Mr. Femi Otedola, has denied insulting members of the House of Representatives Committee on Ethics and Privileges on Tuesday.
In a statement by his lawyer, Mr. Babajide Koku, on Wednesday, the businessman equally debunked reports that he refused to testify before the commitee.
The statement read, “Mr. Femi Otedola, CON at the meeting conducted himself with decorum, he was not abusive and at no time in the course of the hearing made any disparaging remarks against any member of the committee.
“The statement of the Honourable Gambo Dan-Musa (committee chairman) is to say the least unbecoming and underscores manifest bias.
“Mr. Otedola did not refuse to testify before the committee save that his testimony should be taken in public and not in camera.
“The unfortunate misrepresentation of Mr. Otedola’s comments at the meeting further reinforces his call for a public hearing.”
