President Muhammadu Buhari has denied ever receiving cash of $300,000 from a former National Security Adviser, retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki.
Buhari, who reacted to the claim by Dasuki in his statement to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission that he gave him $300,000, said he did not receive a kobo from the former NSA.
Reacting to the development in an interview with The Eagle Online on behalf of his boss, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina, said Buhari only received two Jeeps from the Presidency before his inauguration on May 29, 2015.
Adesina said the Jeep, one armoured and the other ordinary, were sent to Buhari shortly after the attack on his vehicles in Kaduna State by members of the Boko Haram sect.
He said the two Jeeps were Toyota Land Cruiser.
In a text message he further emphasised that Dasuki never gave a dime to his boss, Adesina wrote: “After the attack, he (Buhari) got two Land Cruiser SUVs, one armoured, the other not.
