Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, on Wednesday reacted to the allegations made against him by Chairman and editor-in-chief of Thisday newspaper, Nduka Obaigbena over the collection of N50m from the office of the former National Security Adviser, Dasuki Sambo.
But Adesina said the guild of Editors will be in the best position to respond to Obaigbena’s claim.
“Please direct all questions to the Nigerian Guild of Editors. But I believe the body will soon issue a statement on what actually transpired” he said.
Obaigbena, who is also the President of the Newspapers Propriators Association of Nigeria (NPAN) had on Monday revealed that the Nigerian Guild of Editors collected N50 million from the Office of the National Security Adviser, in a further widening of the arms purchase scandal.
Since the revelation was made, some Nigerians have been demanding the resignation and interrogation of Adesina, who was the president of the Guild when the payment was allegedly made.
