Governor Ayodele Fayose’s weighty allegation of Aisha Buhari, the wife of the Nigerian President’s involvement in the Halliburton bribery scandal has been cleared by the United States government, according to the Punch.
This was revealed by an electronic mail sent to the media outfit by the acting Public Affairs Officer, US Consulate General, Lagos, Frank Sellin on Thursday following an enquiry after Fayose accused President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife of avoiding America to prevent her arrest.

In a message, Sellin said, “Thank you for the inquiry. We have no information to provide on this matter.”

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, had, last month, alleged that Mrs. Buhari was involved in the $185m Halliburton scandal.

While reacting to the freezing of his Zenith Bank accounts by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Fayose claimed that the wife of the President was a wanted person in the US.

He had said, “Even the President cannot claim to be an angel. The estate he built in Abuja is known to us. His wife was indicted in the Halliburton scandal. When that American, Jefferson, was being sentenced, the President’s wife was mentioned as having wired $170,000 to Jefferson.

“Her name was on page 25 of the sentencing of Jefferson. We can serialise the judgment for people to see and read.”
