Bribery scandal: Nigerians ‘throw mud’ at presidency for rushing to defend Abba Kyari

Abba Kyari, president Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, made headlines on Saturday, after a publication by a national daily accused him of N29. 9m fraud.

The news as soon as it broke, quickly drew a lot of sensation, as various groups began to call for the sack of Abba Kyari.

Presidency on Saturday evening released a statement debunking the corruption allegations levied against Mr Kyari, and even threatened legal actions against the publisher of the news.

Mr Garba Shehu wrote:

Reacting to the statement, some Nigerians are saying it was wrong for the presidency to dismiss the allegations, just like that, without first setting up a committee to investigate thoroughly.

Some where also of the opinion that, the presidency shouldn’t be directly involved in dismissing the allegations especially using the official handle of the government.

Where some berated the present administration for being silent on some salient issues buy would ‘rush’to defend corruption allegations.
