The Presidency yesterday denied a report in one of the national dailies, (not The Guardian) that President Goodluck Jonathan spent N2 trillion as campaign funds in the 2015 general elections as mischievous, false and embarrassing.
It also denied that Jonathan had raised a committee of five persons to carry out an audit of how the funds for elections were disbursed by party members.
In a statement in Abuja, Presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati said the reports were part of the deliberate attempts at undermining the Jonathan Presidency, maintaining that nothing of such existed.
According to Abati, “The President has not set up any committee as alleged in that story. It is also not true that the Presidency and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) used state funds, or spent N2 trillion during the campaigns, “noting that the innuendoes are wrong-headed; the motives behind the story are suspicious.
