Arogbola Refutes Report Of Submission Of Politicians’ Names To EFCC
CHIEF of Staff to President Goodluck Jonathan, Brigadier General Jones Oladeinde Arogbofa, has refuted publication in the social media showing list of names of some Nigerian politicians allegedly forwarded to the Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) by his office on the instruction of Mr. President for investigation.
Arogbofa, in a statement made available to The Guardian said: “Having critically read and examined this malicious and orchestrated publication, I hereby wish to state as follows:
“That the purported headed letter used for the publication was never that of my office and surely must have been forged.
“That the signature contained in the publication as proof of my endorsement was not my signature but also forged.
“The mode and manner the publication was written is never my style of writing or that of any other person in my office.
“Mr. President has never given such a directive, hence such publication cannot emanate from my office.
“Such decisions or any related matters are not part of my schedule and it is not possible for me to carry out a responsibility that is not under my purview.
Arogbofa, therefore, advised the general public to disregard the publication, as it is untrue, malicious and unfounded.
