Former Senior Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Public Affair, Doyin Okupe, has said that those “impatiently waiting” for his arrest will “wait till kingdom come”.
He said this on his Facebook page.
“My attention has been drawn to publications stating that EFCC is probing me with respect to the payment to Daar Communications Ltd. and the now famous $2.1 billion Dasuki gate.
“They claim that the EFCC has written to the presidency to investigate the involvement of my former office, office of the special assistant to the president on public affairs.
“My office does not have a budget or any capital vote. My office lacked the capacity to award contracts. I was employed to do a job and I was loyal and committed totally to my employer and whatever I considered was important in the line of my duty.
“I did not receive neither did I take any special gratification for what I did. This is what is difficult for most of my detractors to believe. The EFCC cannot embark on an investigation based purely on fiction and delusionary imaginations.
“I am ashamed at the extent some unscrupulous and ill-bred journalists will go to disparage the innocent by publishing outright falsehood. Even if people are paid to bring imaginary political enemies down, do they not have the fear of God?
“Those who are impatiently waiting for my arrest, by the Grace of the Almighty God who I serve, and whose precepts I have kept all my life, in and out of office, will wait till kingdom come.”
A recent investigation by PREMIUM TIMES showed that two companies linked to Mr. Okupe got at least N1.6 billion off the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, in three shady cyber security contracts.
One of the contracts had instructions to hunt down unfriendly media websites with Distributed Denial of Service attacks.
It was a project conceived to shut down online media platforms perceived as friendly to Buhari or critical of Mr. Jonathan ahead of the 2015 election.
