The Federal Government has debunked claims by the Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose, that the first lady of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari was implicated in the Halliburton scandal.

The Presidency also threatened Fayose saying Mrs. Buhari has the right to protect her reputation in the court.

Premium Times reports that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the Governor’s allegations are laughable.

He also said Fayose is that is“childishly obsessed with the desire to grab the headlines and insulting people at will because of his incurably boorish instincts.”

Shehu said the Federal Government would have ignored the Governor’s allegations, but decided to respond so innocent Nigerians will not be swayed by falsehood.

The Presidential spokesman also said Mrs. Buhari had no direct or indirect connection with Congressman William Jefferson, an American lawmaker who was convicted in 2009.

He also challenged Governor Fayose to provide proof of his allegations for Nigerians to see.

Governor Ayo Fayose on Monday, June 20, 2016, told President Buhari not to believe that he is a saint.

He said this in reaction to the freezing of his account by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
