Jonathan denies offering $5 million bribe to Obafemi Hamzat

Jonathan denies offering $5 million bribe to Obafemi Hamzat

The current vice governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat claims that the former president of Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan offered him $5 million during the 2015 elections.

In a statement Sunday, Mr Jonathan reacted to the allegation to be false as he further liberated the allegation was a “blatant lie apparently concocted by a wannabe politician desperate for votes in a campaign season.”

However, Muhammadu Buhari won the election over Jonathan

“In the first place this character is an obscure individual who in 2015 had neither a recognizable name nor political clout,” Mr Jonathan said in a statement by his media aide, Ikechukwu Eze.

“The point has to be clearly made that former President Jonathan has never met this man who was obviously not relevant in the national politics of 2015, let alone seek to offer him a bribe.

“If the former President did not offer anyone bribe, having clearly acquitted himself as a man who does not believe in desperate politics, how on earth could he have sought to compromise an individual he didn’t even know and who obviously had no means of helping him politically?”

 “Assuming anybody had $5 million dollars to spend to better his political fortune as Mr Hamzat claimed, why seek to waste it on a man who was just a commissioner prior to 2015, and whose best outing so far is to function as a hand-picked running mate to a governorship candidate in the forthcoming 2019 elections?

“It is the action of people like Hamzat that conjures up in the minds of Nigerians the Biblical ‘Mark of the Beast’ to the effect that to be accepted in his party, one must be adept at telling lies.

“If this is how Mr Hamzat wishes to anchor his own political doctrine on lies and name dropping, he should be reminded that those who follow this route do not go far either in politics or personal growth.”

 “We have always made the point that there should be a limit to these lies if we must make progress as a democratic nation,” he said.

“Nigerians are not fools. It is high time those in positions of responsibility stopped running this country on lies.”
