Contrary to the malicious rumour been spread about Gen. T. Y Danjuma (Rtd) that he had been flown abroad in search of an urgent cure for his sickness, the Nigerian oil magnate and former Minister of Defence is actually hale and hearty.
According to TheCapital, Danjuma is not afflicted with any sickness.
Findings revealed that, he is in the country and currently planning a high octane bash in celebration of his forthcoming birthday.
Danjuma, in apparent bid to shame his detractors, will host the crème of Nigeria’s high society at the much-talked about Eko Atlantic City. The event is supposed to put a lie to the rumours of ill-health been spread about him.
The renowned philanthropist has an estimated net worth of $1.1 billion as of 2015, according to Forbes. Danjuma has put over $100 million of his own money into his charity, the TY Danjuma Foundation- making it one of Africa’s largest charities, and Danjuma, the country’s biggest philanthropist.
The retired military General was Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff in the 70s and served as the Minister of Defense during former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s tenure between 1999 and 2003. He has always been one of Nigeria’s most influential people which makes every news and the flimsiest rumour about him the subject of feverish speculations.
However, the recent nasty rumour been peddled about him is unfounded and Danjuma will lay it to rest as he emerges in his full eminence and resplendent colours at his star-studded birthday before this weekend.
