Prof. Charles Dokubo, the Coordinator of the Niger Delta Presidential Amnesty Programme described reports going round that President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha, benefited from contracts awarded by the amnesty office got a contract from the programme “a garnished sacrilegious adventure.”
He said this in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Murphy Ganagana on Tuesday, saying the reports that Aisha, National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, and his associateswere got contracts from his office as untrue.
Prof. Dokubo urged Nigerians to disregard such rumour.
The statement read, “We wish to state that this allegation is malicious and mischievous. Neither the NSA nor the wife of the President has ever requested or secured contracts for their associates or family members who are not even known to the amnesty office.
“It is also on record that Mrs Aisha Buhari, like Mr President, abhors corruption and will not encourage fraudulent activities.
“We urge members of the public to discountenance these reports as they are the handiwork of an angry and hungry bunch whose attempt to coerce Prof. Dokubo to award them contracts was courageously rebuffed by him.
“They have threatened and vowed to fight dirty to remove him from office, but their evil machinations will come to naught.”
