Jonathan's aide, Ikechukwu Eze reacted to the claims by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), saying there was no iota of truth in the claims.
Eze dismissed the claim as “a blatant lie hurriedly cooked up to divert the attention of the general public from the raging ‘Mainagate’ and other embarrassing scandals.”
He further added, “We believe that the story was concocted as part of the unfolding grand design (by the Buhari administration) to always dodge responsibility and blame every evil act taking place in the present dispensation on the past (Jonathan) administration.
“In the first place, we do not believe that Malami made such a claim because he is in a position to know that it is simply not true.”
Malami reportedly told a Senate ad-hoc committee that an “ex-president was taking N5bn monthly from the Pension Fund.”
