Gani Adams denies collecting N9bn from Dasukigate

The leader of the Odua Peoples Congress, OPC, Gani Adams, has denied collecting N9billion from the $2.1million arms deal being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Mr. Adams made the clarification on Monday in reaction to allegations by former Kwara, Oyo and Ondo States coordinators of the OPC.

The OPC boss said he would have ignored the allegations as “ranting of a disgruntled set of people”.

He said he reacted because “a lie told over time without any effort to disprove it will begin to take the form of truth”.

“The former coordinator for Kwara State, Moruf Salami, along with former coordinators for Ondo and Oyo states, alleged that I collected N9billion from former President Goodluck Jonathan, that I also collected 22 million dollars from the late Libyan President, Muammar Ghadafi.

He said he had never been to Libya, neither did he meet the late Libyan leader or his agent at any time.

“I took it upon myself to write a petition to the State Security Service, informing them of the allegation and pleading with the service to help investigate its source in order to get to the root of the matter.

“As I speak with you, I am still awaiting the response to my petition.

Having said that, I want to once again plead with the SSS to, as a matter of urgency, make sure that the people who made these allegations prove their case.

“If they are not able to do so, they should be made to face prosecution for their actions,” he added.

    Thanks to the Ineffective Buffon, a mere thug was promoted to national prominence.
    This cl0wn wants SSS (the illiterate doesn’t even know it is now called DSS) to prosecute his accusers as if accusing him is a state security matter. Mr. Thug, sue your accusers in a civil court!
    When your case file with DSS comes up, we shall know how much Fortunato gave you. Unfortunately for you, you are Yoruba who value good names above any other thing, you would soon become history, oloshi!

      The truth must be told. Your name calling here is troubling. SSS or DSS are interchangeable. Bill Gate of Microsoft didn’t finish college. Nigerian talk about illiterate as if that’s a crime. Please get off your high horse. Gani did the right thing that anyone accused should do. Call them out. That didn’t mean he can’t sue them, if he felt that they had any means to pay.

        In all this rant , u still failed to mention the truth you claimed must be told. Was Bill Gate a thug ? You equating Bill Gate to the thug Gani Adams is just a bit short of insanity !
