The former minister of information and National orientation, Labaran Maku has taken to his Twitter account to refute statements in the news that a whooping sum of N37Bn was found in his farm.
“My attention has been drawn to a wicked, malicious and evil blackmail in the social media that N37 Billion was found on a farm allegedly belonging to me.
“First, they said they found $1 Billion Dollars on a farm allegedly belonging to me, but after they were attacked by Nigerians, they reduced it to N37 Billion so that people will believe their lies! But Nigerians are not fools and can smell blackmail.
“This evil blackmail on me on the social media is happening because I challenged APC Gov Tanko Almakura to account for the estimated Hundreds of millions of Naira he collected in four years as allocations to Nasarawa State yet the state is still in poverty.
“Instead of accounting for Nasarawa money and responding to the issues I raised, agents went on social media to slander me. The story that N37 billion was found on my alleged “farm” is completely false and evil! It is part of an ongoing effort to blackmail me,” he concluded by saying.
Is there any one in the Nigerian polity who doesn’t have a financial scandal?
