June 24, 2016 – Defamation: First Lady Aisha Buhari Threatens To Sue Fayose

First Lady Aisha Buhari has described the statement by Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose which fingered her as an accomplice in the famous Halliburton bribery scandal that landed former U.S. lawmaker, Williams Jefferson in jail as “very wild and unfounded.”

She threatened to drag Fayose to court if the statement was not retracted within five working days. The letter emanated from the chamber of Mary Ekpere and Co.
The letter signed by Ismaila Alasa and Mary Ekpere was entitled: “Demand for unqualified retraction of the false statement published by you in various media on the 20th of June, 2016, and subsequent dates regarding our client, Her Excellency, Mrs. Aisha Buhari the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR.

“The said statement which was caused by you and your agents to be widely circulated and published in various media platforms: print, electronic and online on 20th of June, 2016, contains very wild, unfounded and false allegations and imputations against the person of our client.

“Take notice that unless you and your agents meet our humble demands within five working days of the receipt of this letter, we shall take all necessary steps within the contemplation of the law to seek redress for our client.”

The governor had on Monday distributed a statement, which contained excerpts of court documents sourced from the United States Department of Justice Website allegedly indicting Mrs. Buhari in the sordid

Meanwhile, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party and key participant in the bribery scandal, Oyewole Fasawe, described Fayose’s accusations against Buhari’s wife, as “fallacious, baseless, misinformed and defamatory”, saying she was not connected “in any way” to the transaction,

“We were the ones in government, and she was never a member of our party or my business associate. So, how could she have been involved in the first place,” Mr. Fasawe said.

Fasawe advised Fayose and his handlers to desist from “this unprovoked attack and unsolicited defamation to the person of Mrs. Aisha Buhari,” adding that “no one should hide behind immunity clause to trample upon the rights and reputation of others with impunity.”

  3. A good name is one thing another person can steal from you although it is of no benefit to him but will leave you poor indeed, if the First Lady is wrongly defamed, she deserves an apology and demanding same is normal, and just like the simple word” sorry” can diffuse anger, an apology can stop a n embarrassing court case. No person has any right to peddle false stories about another

  4. My advice for Nigerian First Lady-Mrs. Aisha Buhari is to ignore Fayose and his false accusations. There is no Nigerian citizen today that doesn’t know Ayodele Fayose has a mad man occupying Ekiti state governor Office as the most imcompetent, stupid, dumb, and attention seeker. He knows that he will be charge for various atrocities committed against Ekiti state people soon, therefore, he will make ridiculous and falsehood in order to create unnecessary attention. The First Lady should not go down the mud with an insane looter and Area boy that suddenly turned governor of my state. Mrs Aisha Buhari should not respond to any more of Fayose false accusations because that his is last resort to stay relevant and draw unnecessary sympathy and attention. Mark my words, he will make more ridiculous statement and formula lies to detract people from his own looting, embezzlement, election fraud and money laundering operations.

  5. What is wrong with this stupid man. Instead of him to think of how to pay salary in his state he is busy nosediving into what does not concern him. Seriously am really fed up with this idiot, and the people that voted for him because of bag of rice have seen the result, they too should be ashame of themselves. Just few weeks ago he said that he cannot pay salary. If you cannot pay salary then what are you still doing in that office, opening ur big mouth to vomit rubbish. Mrs Buhari should sue him let him come and tell the court and show evident of how she was involve. Ah! ah! Yesteday Fayose, 2day Fayose, 2moro Fayose, shameless idiot.

  6. This sounds interesting. And we are waiting the outcome of this. Hmm drama in politics, one can never understand
