Nuhu-Ribadu2A one-time presidential candidate and former boss of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Nuhu Ribadu, has denied receiving, let alone making any refund of monies he purportedly got from embattled former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki.

The EFCC is currently prosecuting Dasuki for diverting over $2.1 billion meant for arms purchase to fight Boko Haram to various individuals for the 2015 general elections.

Mr. Ribadu in a statement on Tuesday said those trying to discreetly plant a story against him in the media should come forward with documentary evidence to suggest that he collected money from the ex-NSA or had made some refunds to government.

“My attention has been drawn to insinuations in certain quarters of my purported repayment of some monies I was allegedly given by the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd)”, Mr. Ribadu said.

“For the record, let me categorically state that I had nothing to do with the former NSA while he was in office. I cannot remember meeting him at any time while he held sway.

“It is therefore shocking for me to be accused of receiving something from someone I never had any relationship with, not to talk of refunding money he gave me”, said Ribadu.

The PDP governorship candidate in the last general elections in Adamawa State insisted that he did not receive any money from the former NSA either directly or through a proxy.

“There is therefore no reason for me to make any refund”, he said, adding “I have not been contacted by any security agency on this matter to warrant any action of that nature on my part”.
