Garba Shehu Threatens Lawsuit Over Alleged Forex Claim

…Says A Psychopath Is Behind PDP Handle

Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to claims by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that he got $800,000 forex at N185 from the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Shehu who dismissed the PDP claims said he wished he knew the psychopath behind the official @PDPNigeria handle so that he can sue for defamation.
The PDP had earlier stated in a tweet that: “Garba Shehu got $800,000 forex at N185 from CBN on the instructions of Emefiele, CBN governor and sold at N350 on the same day.”

In a series of tweets, Shehu said he only did a transaction for $8,000 which he sent to his daughter and nephews through a United Bank of Africa account.
“It is a lie by @PDPNigeria to say I bought USD worth 800,000 from the CBN. I had only two FOREX purchases since coming into government.
“Amounting to Eight Thousand Dollars (USD 8,000) sent to my daughter and nephews through UBA. This is verifiable.
“I’m not a FOREX trader. The day I choose to start trading in FOREX I will resign as a Presidential spokesman.”
If I know the coward and psychopath behind the official @PDPNigeria handle, I will launch a defamation suit against him/her”.
“And I will claim money in millions as damages!,” he said.
