The Coordinator of the Niger Delta Presidential Amnesty Programme, Prof. Charles Dokubo, has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha, never got a contract from the programme.
A statement by Dokubo’s Special Assistant on Media, Murphy Ganagana, described the claim as mischievous.
The statement said the reports going round that Aisha, and the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, and his associates benefited from contracts awarded by the amnesty office were untrue.
Dokubo urged public members to dismiss the reports, which he described as “a garnished sacrilegious adventure.”
“We wish to state that this allegation is malicious and mischievous. Neither the NSA nor the wife of the President has ever requested or secured contracts for their associates or family members who are not even known to the amnesty office.
“It is also on record that Mrs Aisha Buhari, like Mr President, abhors corruption and will not encourage fraudulent activities.
“We urge members of the public to discountenance these reports as they are the handiwork of an angry and hungry bunch whose attempt to coerce Prof. Dokubo to award them contracts was courageously rebuffed by him.

“They have threatened and vowed to fight dirty to remove him from office, but their evil machinations will come to naught,” the statement read.
