[NEWS] BRIBERY ALLEGATION AGAINST ABBA KYARI IS WRONG, SAYS PRESIDENCY

Abba Kyari

 

THE PRESIDENCY HAS CRITICIZED THE REPORT WHICH ALLEGED THAT PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI’S CHIEF OF STAFF, ABBA KYARI, RECEIVED A BRIBE OF N29MILLION TO AWARD A CONTRACT.

THE SENIOR SPECIAL ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT ON MEDIA AND PUBLICITY, GARBA SHEHU, IN A STATEMENT AT THE WEEKEND, ACCUSED SOME POLITICIANS OF WORKING TO BUILD PRESSURE ON THE BUHARI ADMINISTRATION BY WIELDING SCANDALS THAT DO NOT EXIST AGAINST IT.

HE ALSO ADDED THAT THE SUPPLY OF 15 HILUX VEHICLES FOR THE PRESIDENCY AS CLAIMED WAS AN UNLIKELY CONTRACT TO HAVE BEEN AWARDED, NOTING THAT THE CONTRACT DID NOT EXIST ANYWHERE IN THE 2016 AND 2017 BUDGETS.
