So, earlier today we published how Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose’s attempted to get back at President Muhammadu Buhari following the freezing of his Zenith bank, he tried to implicate Mrs. Buhari (Read it HERE)
Well, the First Lady has reacted to the governor’s allegations. He had alleged that Mrs Buhari was implicated in the Halliburton bribery scandal involving a U.S. Congressman, Williams Jefferson.
She reacted via her official Twitter account…
The Presidency had earlier debunked the claims, describing the allegations as ‘laughable’ and the Governor as a man “childishly obsessed with the desire to grab the headlines and insulting people at will because of his incurably boorish instincts”
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the Federal Government would have ignored the allegations but decided to respond so innocent Nigerians will not be swayed by falsehood.
The Presidential spokesman also said Mrs Buhari had no direct or indirect connection with Congressman William Jefferson, the U.S. lawmaker who was convicted in 2009.
