$2.1bn arms deal: It’s a rubbish talk that Falae got N100 million from Dasuki – SDP
The Osun State Chapter of Social Democratic Party (SDP), has described as rubbish the insinuation that the party’s National Chairman, Chief Olu Falae received N100 million from the former National Security Adviser (NSA) to President Goodluck Jonathan, Col. Dasuki.
In a statement issued in Osogbo, on Sunday, by the chairman, Chief Ademola Ishola, the party insisted that Falae never received any money from the ex-NSA.
He stated that President Muhammadu Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) was out to destroy Falae because the former presidential candidate and his party did not support them during the last election.
According to him, during the last presidential election, the SDP has a working agreement with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to support its presidential candidate, Dr. Jonathan since, “the SDP has no presidential candidate.
“As a party, we have no presidential candidate and our party endorsed the PDP’s candidate. And we agreed on principle and the PDP and not Dasuki released the sum of N100 million for mobilization of all our teaming members across the country to support Jonathan and the PDP.
“This is a rubbish talk that Falae took N100million from Dasuki. The said money was declared by Chief Falae to the party and over N5million of it was received by and party, the SDP in Osun state.
“President Buhari and the APC were only engaged in a smearing campaign against our leader because they don’t want any opposition to speak against all their anti-peoples’ policies,” Ishola stated.
