Sambo Dasuki, the former National Security Adviser, has issued a statement condemning President Buhari’s media aide, Femi Adesina.
Former NSA insults Femi Adesina
Dasuki said he submitted a comprehensive list of all the equipment requested for, and the ones to be supplied, to President Buhari before he left office.
He said “The statement issued by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, who should know better as a former President of the Nigerian Guild of Editors and a witness to history, was nothing sort of propaganda to cast aspersions on Dasuki.”
Dasuki also said “In a theatrical manner, the Presidency fed the public with many allegations against my person and yet to be named former public officers.
“To draw sympathy, the presidency quoted some absurd findings including extra-budgetary interventions; award of fictitious contracts; 53 failed contracts; payment for jobs without contractual agreements; non-execution of contracts for the purchase of 4 Alpha jets, bombs and ammunition.”
The former NSA also said he submitted a comprehensive list of all the equipment requested for, and the ones to be supplied, to President Buhari before he left office.
He also accused the Presidency of acting out a script, stating that he was not the National Security Adviser, in March 2012, as alleged.
“As if acting a script, the Presidency alleged that the Panel accused Dasuki of awarding fictitious contracts between March 2012 and March 2015. Contrary to this claim, Dasuki was not the NSA in March 2012 and he could not have awarded any contract in whatever name. The ex-NSA was appointed by ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on June 22, 2012,” Dasuki said.
Sambo Dasuki was allegedly implicated by a 13 man committee set up by President Buhari to investigate various arms purchase deals.
