Former Niger Delta militant leader, Mujaheed Asari Dokubo, yesterday lambasted Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo describing him as a liar.
Asari said the vice President now had PhD in lying.
The ex-militant leader said this in a video he shared on ysterday in reaction to the NNPC contract saga.
There have been conflicting reports of Osinbajo’s alleged approval of NNPC contracts worth over N600 billion while Buhari was away on medical leave in London.
In a statement by his Media aide, Laolu Akande, Osinbajo had admitted that he approved some contracts for the NNPC but later clarified that it was loan agreements he approved not Oil contracts.
Asari, in the video attacked Osinbajo, saying that he now “has PhD in Lying.”
However, the Vice President in a swift reaction, denied approving any contract, saying what he approved for the NNPC were two loans.
In what appeared to be a U-turn, Akande in a statement said Osinbajo made the clarification in view of media enquiries that followed NNPC’s claim that the contracts were indeed approved by him (Osinbajo).
Akande tweeted: “In response to media inquiries on NNPC joint venture financing, VP Osinbajo, as Ag President, approved recommendations after due diligence & adherence to established procedure.
The Vice President who was in Bonny Island where he flagged off the Bodo-Bonny Road, Rivers State, said he only granted loans and not contracts.
