Dasuki Gate: Those Waiting For My Arrest Will Be Put To Shame- Okupe

Former Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Public Affairs to the
immediate past president, Goodluck Jonathan, Dr. Doyin Okupe, today denied
reports that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has begun
investigation into his alleged involvement in the payment of N2.1 billion from
the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki, to the former
Chairman of DAAR Communications, Chief Raymond Dokpesi.
Okupe took to his Facebook page to write; “My attention has
been drawn to publications on two online publications stating that EFCC is
probing me with respect to the payment to Daar Communications Ltd. and the now
famous $2.1 billion Dasuki gate.
“They claim in their write up that EFCC has written to the
Presidency to investigate the involvement of my former office, office of the
special assistant to the President on public affairs.

“My office does not have a budget or any capital vote. My
office lacked the capacity to award contracts. I was employed to do a job and I
was loyal and committed totally to my employer and whatever I considered was
important in the line of my duty.
“I did not receive neither did I take any special
gratifications for what I did. This is what is difficult for most of my
detractors to believe. From the entire write up it is obvious the writer(s) of
the story were speculating and imagining things that are not real.
“The EFCC cannot embark on an investigation based purely on
fiction and delusionary imaginations. I am ashamed at the extent some
unscrupulous and ill-bred journalists will go to disparage the innocent by
publishing outright falsehood. Even if people are paid to bring imaginary
political enemies down, do they not have the fear of God?
“Those who are impatiently waiting for my arrest , by the
Grace of the Almighty God who I serve, and whose precepts I have kept all my
life, in and out of office, will wait till kingdom come,” he wrote.
