Akorede said, “It’s true, however, I need to point out that this has nothing to do with Budgit. As you may recall, Seun has been absent from the company for some time. This is a situation that affects Seun as a person, nothing to do with Budgit.

“This is in his personal capacity as a Nigerian,” Akorede insisted.

Onigbinde co-founded Budgit, a social enterprise dedicated to calling for fiscal transparency in government.
