In a swift response to reports that he collected $300, 000 from the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki, President Muhammadu Buhari has made fresh clarifications.
According to Eagleonline, the Nigerian president denied ever receiving cash from the embattled former NSA, who is presently embroiled in a multi-billion dollar arms deal scandal.
Femi Adesina, the special adviser on media and publicity to the president informed instead, that the president received only two Jeeps from the presidency before his inauguration on May 29, 2015.
According the presidential spokesperson, the Jeep, one armoured and the other, ordinary, were sent to Buhari shortly after the attack on his vehicles in Kaduna state by members of the Boko Haram sect.
In a text message to further emphasise that Dasuki never gave a dime to the president, Mr Adesina wrote: “After the attack, he (Buhari) got two Land Cruiser SUVs, one armoured, the other not. No cash.”
In a rather stunning revelation today, many significant Nigerian politicians and leaders are being accused of collecting huge sums of money from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) Colonel Sambo Dasuki.
