Following admittance of receipt of N2.1 billion from the $2.1 billion arms fund by the Chairman of Daar Communications, Alhaji Raymond Dokpesi, the Director, Media and Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation in the 2015 presidential election, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, said the organisation has nothing to do with the money allegedly paid to the Dokpesi from the office of the NSA.
Fani-Kayode, who spoke with New Telegraph yesterday, said Dokpesi was not a member of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation. “As far as we are concerned, we don’t have anything to do with the payment made to Dokpesi for publicity.
All the monies we spent were from private contributions, the fact is there for anybody to scrutinise. Dokpesi is not part of us, and you know this. “If he says he collected money from somebody for something, that’s between him and the person. I am just concerned about the way the country is going,” Fani-Kayode stated.
George has also refuted a report by an online medium that he collected N100 million from Dasuki, in the build-up to the 2015 general elections.
In a statement issued by his political adviser, Prince Uthman Shodipe- Dosunmu, George said: “For the record, Chief Bode George did not collect N100 million from Dasuki or anybody else whatsoever.
He has never even set eyes on the former NSA throughout his tenure in office, talk less of collecting money from him. Dasuki, of course, is very much alive to corroborate this position.”
Similarly, Bafarawa has said that he did not receive any money from the embattled former security chief. A statement issued in Abuja yesterday by one of his aides, a former Special Adviser on Youths and Students Matters, Alhaji Akibu Dalhatu, maintained that he has neither had any deal with the former NSA nor collected money from him for any purpose.
“The former governor of Sokoto state, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa did not receive any money from Col. Sambo Dasuki for any arms deal or for any purpose,” Akibu said in the statement.
