The Chairman of the Northern Senators Forum, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, representing Sokoto North Senatorial District has debunked the insinuation that he has strained relationship with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking in Sokoto with Journalists, Senator Wamakko said he was not against President Buhari stressing that ” I and President Buhari are best of friends.”
Senator Wamakko, who was reacting to a newspaper publication to the effect that he was being investigated by the EFCC involving N1.6 billion, said he has never had N 1 billion in his entire life.
Senator Wamakko, who was the former Governor of Sokoto state, described the publication as mischievous and sponsored by some faceless merchants of doom.
According to the Senator, all that was said in the petition are fake, rubbish, fictitious and mischievous.
He further stated that the petition was not from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC), but from some merchants of falsehood saying the false publication was part of media trial of his person by some politicians who want to bring down Senator Wamakko.
He however said he was always prepared to make himself available for any objective and fair investigation by any anti corruption body as a law abiding citizen of the nation.
