A woman identified as Miriam Shehu has on Saturday called out singer Banky W for allegedly receiving N57million from President Buhari.
According to Shehu, the payment which was reportedly meant for a campaign for the president, was allegedly received by the singer. Shehu also claimed Banky didn’t execute the project.
However, Banky W in his reaction, said it is a false allegation and has threatened to sue the accuser He wrote:
‘Completely false and untrue. I’ve never met this person, and never collected a dime to do anything for this President. I DARE YOU to show proof of the false stories you are peddling. Why would I be running on an independent party in my own constituency if that was my plan?
Someone can tweet “Banky W has collected 57 million contract to do PR for Buhari” and get hundreds of retweets/believers in a few mins, without anyone actually bothering to ask for proof. It is COMPLETELY false, but noone cares for the truth.
