Aisha Buhari writes Fayose, demands retraction of claims

23 June 2016, 10:06

Ekiti - The wife of the President, Aisha Buhari has written Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, demanding a retraction of the claims by the governor that she transferred funds to a convicted former US lawmaker, Williams Jefferson, Premium Times reports.

In a warning letter dispatched through her legal representatives, Buhari said Fayose’s action was directly responsible for the publication of the “very wild and unfounded” allegations in the media.

Through the letter, titled: “Demand for unqualified retraction of the false statement published by you in various media on the 20th of June, 2016, and subsequent dates regarding our client, Her Excellency, Mrs. Aisha Buhari the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR,”  the president’s wife gave Mr. Fayose five working days to retract the statement or face legal action.

News24 previously reported that Fayose on Monday distributed a statement which contained excerpts of court documents sourced from the United States Department of Justice Website.

In the statement, Fayose said Aisha Buhari was an accomplice in the bribery scandal that landed Jefferson in jail, saying he added the link as a proof.

Although an Aisha Buhari was mentioned in the case files, those who investigated the matter have, however, said that Aisha Buhari is an impostor and not the wife of President Buhari.
