Presidency Denies Receiving N3bn Donation

Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Political Matters, Dr. Akilu Indabawa, has denied as fabrications aimed at ridiculing his principal the reported donation of N500 million each by six governors.

The lie in the publication, he claimed, stemmed from the report that he wrote a letter acknowledging receipt of the donations, insisting that no such letter was written by him.

He said he had already forwarded a complaint to the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation seeking legal redress since forgery which was implied in the claim of the report of a non-existent document was a criminal offence.

This is to strongly repudiate a report in sections of media today alleging that six state governors have each contributed N500 million to the campaign of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. The false reports quoted a forged letter purportedly written by me to the six governors acknowledging receipt of their donations on behalf of the Jonathan/Sambo Presidential Campaign Organisation.

“The report is entirely false and fabricated to ridicule Mr. President in the eyes of the Nigerian public. The forged letter attempts to criminally portray Mr. President and the six mentioned governors, who incidentally are co-ordinators of the President’s campaign in the zones, as treasury looters.

This is no doubt a wicked concoction to cast a shadow of doubt on Mr. President’s widespread support nationwide and we are not going to take it lying low.

I have officially written to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, reporting the matter and seeking adequate legal redress. Forgery is a criminal offence in our laws, and this matter must be pursued to a logical conclusion, Indabawa said.
