The National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) Prof. Wale Oladipo, on Monday denied that he received money from the former National Security Adviser, NSA, to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Colonel Sambo Dasuki,(rtd).
He was reacting to a report that he received the sum of N75 million from Dasuki and appealed to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) to be allowed to refund the money.
But in a statement made available to news men in Abuja Oladipo declared that “before and after the elections, I have no financial dealings with the Office of the National Security Adviser or any other government official”.
Prof. Oladipo explained that the few monetary transactions he handled were within the ambit of his official duties as the National Secretary of the party.
He stated that “at no point did he collect money from Colonel Dasuki or any other government official”.
“The report is clearly politically motivated. I affirm that all my actions and communications are motivated by highest ideals of patriotism, transparency and commitment to nationhood.’’
