PRESIDENCY BRANDS REPORT ON OGUN GOVT’S PAYMENT OF N12M TO BUHARI’S ACCOUNT AS FAKE NEWS

Written by on December 4, 2020

THE PRESIDENCY HAVE DESCRIBED AS FAKE NEWS REPORTS THAT FORMER OGUN STATE GOVERNOR, IBIKUNLE AMOSUN, PAID N12.5 MILLION INTO THE PERSONAL ACCOUNT OF PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI WHILE IN OFFICE.

REPORTS HAD CLAIMED THAT AMOSUN, WHO RULED OGUN STATE FROM 2011 TO 2019, FRAUDULENTLY PAID THE FUNDS INTO PRESIDENT BUHARI’S PERSONAL ACCOUNT SHORTLY BEFORE HE LEFT OFFICE.

HOWEVER, IN A STATEMENT ISSUED BY THE SENIOR SPECIAL ASSISTANT ON MEDIA AND PUBLICITY TO THE PRESIDENT, GARBA SHEHU, THE PRESIDENCY SAID THE MONEY IN QUESTION WAS PAID INTO THE ACCOUNT OF THE ESTATE WHICH IS OWNED BY THE OGUN STATE GOVERNMENT AND NOT TO BUHARI AS ALLEGED IN THE REPORT.

BUT THE PRESIDENCY SAYS THE PMB ESTATE IS A LARGE HOUSING SCHEME IN ABEOKUTA, THE OGUN STATE CAPITAL WHICH WAS COMMISSIONED BY PRESIDENT BUHARI IN THE COURSE OF A STATE VISIT, ADDING THAT PMB ESTATE IS OWNED BY THE OGUN STATE GOVERNMENT, WHICH HONOURED THE PRESIDENT BY NAMING IT AFTER HIM.
