Integrity: Peter Obi Is Not Signatory To Campaign Account – Aisha Yesufu Tells Olunloyo – SIXT-MEDIA LANE CONSULT
Aisha Yesufu, one of the prominent faces in Peter Obi’s presidential campaign council, has berated self-acclaimed investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo for lying against the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the just concluded presidential elections in Nigeria.
Kemi had claimed, through a tweet, that Mr Obi’s detention in the UK on Easter Eve had something to do with illicit movement of funds which are allegedly proceeds of campaign donations during the just concluded elections.
Miss Kemi went ahead to claim that Mr Obi had the sole control of funds donated by supporters during the elections and that not even Yusuf Datti, his running mate, had any idea of the movement of funds to and from the account.
This claim by Kemi became popular amongst the supporters of the APC and Tinubu as the tried to popularize the narrative by retweeting and sharing the tweet.
But responding to Miss Kemi’s claim, Aisha Yesufu debunked the claim that Obi was the sole signatory to campaign account. According to Mrs Yesufu, neither Mr Peter Obi nor Mr Datti was a signatory to the campaign account. She stated further that signatories to the campaign account were herself (Aisha Yesufu), Mr Datti’s nominee and one other person which made them three. In all, there 2 Muslims and a Christian signatories to Mr Peter Obi’s campaign account.
One cannot help but wonder where Kemi Olunloyo and other APC supporters got the report of Obi managing campaign funds alone from. Or that Mr Obi’s ordeal had anything to do with money laundering since the British Government through the Home Office, declined to state the reason Obi was detained in an official response to an official enquiry by Premium Times.
