Replying in a statement signed and released on Friday by his Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu, Malami described the claims as fictitious. “The report, as any fake news, was marred by evincing contradictions, figment of imagination, sheer fabrications and filthy assumptions of mischief makers and detractors”, he said.
The statement stressed that the Malami has not collected and does not intend at any time to receive any gratification from any dealing and discharging any function he is constitutionally empowered to perform. Describing the act of bribery as criminal, Malami called on Nigerians to disregard the information.
He then asked individuals who have any information, if any, regarding those who facilitated, accepted, delivered or took part in one way or the other in the alleged offer and purported acceptance of gratification for him or his office to come out publicly with the information with a view to exposing them and taking further necessary action.
