Professor Wale Oladipo, the National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has denied media report that he admitted receiving money from the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Colonel Sambo Dasuki,(rtd).

 

The PDP scribe was reported to have written a letter to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, to seek exemption from prosecution with a promise to refund the alleged N75 million so collected from the ex-NSA.

 

But Prof Oladipo in a statement made available to journalists at the PDP national secretariat in Abuja said the report as published was meant to tarnish his image.

 

He however admitted that the few monetary transactions he handled were within the ambit of his official duties as the National Secretary of the party and that ” at no point did he collect money from Colonel Dasuki or any other government official”.

 

 

“Before and after the elections, I have no financial dealings with the Office of the National Security Adviser or any other government official”.

 

“The report is clearly politically motivated. I affirm that all my actions and communications are motivated by highest ideals of patriotism, transparency and commitment to national reformation, he declared”.

 

 

Oladipo was reported to have approached the Federal High Court, Abuja to restrain the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission and other related offences Commission (ICPC), the inspector general of Police (IGP) and the Department of State Services (DSS) from arresting him.
