National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, has told the President Muhammadu Buhari’s government and the minister of culture and information, Lai Mohammed, to be ready to prove the allegation of financial impropriety against him.
Secondus gave the threat in a statement issued by his spokesman, Ike Abonyi, on Friday night.
The statement reads: “The attention of the National chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, has been drawn to a press conference addressed by the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Friday claiming that the National chairman collected N200m from the purse of the National Security Adviser (NSA).
“Prince Secondus is challenging Mr. Mohammed to be ready to establish his allegations in court immediately.”
The PDP chairman said the agenda of the minister was to damage his reputation and distract him from serving his party but that he had failed woefully.
“For the purposes of some gullible public, Prince Secondus never collected any money from the NSA under any guise,” he stated.
