Senate President denies smear campaign against EFCC

From AUGUSTINE OSAYANDE in Abuja, Nigeria
ABUJA, (CAJ News) – NIGERIA ‘s upper house President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has denied media reports alleging he had hired one Uboh to smear the integrity of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).

He made the denial through spokesperson, Bamikole Omishore.

“It is pertinent and with all sense of responsibility and commitment to state unequivocally that the story is far from the truth,” Omishore said.

He alleged the general public was fully aware that the said online platform that published the false story had been a paid agent of media attacks on the person of the Senate President.

“All allegations made by the online platform against the Senate President have fallen flat on their face as bare lies, concocted with malicious intention.”

Omishore said the Senate President had no relationship whatsoever with Uboh in any capacity or in the course of his emergence as Senate President.

“If anybody has any proof of a relationship between Senator Saraki and the said Mr. Uboh, let him or her come forward to prove it.”
