The special adviser on local government and chieftaincy affairs to Kogi state Governor, Engineer Sadiku Abubakar Ohere has said he has nothing to do with the published banks account in some social media.
He said the malicious publication was purportedly authored by a faceless organization known as Kogi Conscience and Liberation Forum, Abuja and signed by one Gabriel Enoh.
At a press conference in Lokoja on Wednesday, Ohere said it is unfortunate that the said mischievous write-up had found its way into some online media platform.
He noted that the content of the write-up is false and irresponsible, saying he had nothing to do with the published bank detail except the name of Honourable Engineer Sadiqu Abubakar Ohere that bear little but not outright semblance with my name.
“The misleading publication was a clear attempt to tarnish my image.
The write-up alleged among other issues that i have several bank account with whopping balances in all of them.
“This is untrue and a figment of imagination of the mischievous author(s) of the misguided publication,” Ohere said.
He noted that it is however gladdening to read that the write-up had been presented to EFCC adding that he was quiet sure that this is going to be an exercise in futility as there is no iota of truth in the concocted publication..
For the avoidance of doubt, he said, “I want to put on record that my Union Bank account has been dormant for over ten years ago while I currently maintain two accounts with Zenith Bank out of which one is Salary account with a balance of about nine hundred thousand naira (N900,000) and a Savings account with the same bank with a balance of less than ten thousand naira (N10,000)”
He however urged interested members of the public to make their independent inquiry into his financial transaction with the banks mentioned in the write-up to ascertain the truth.
