Popular blogger, Linda Ikeji has denied receiving the sum of N240million from the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
The blogger was reacting to a blanket statement by a social commentator and activist, Kayode Ogundamisi, who tweeted that a popular female blogger received N240m from Dudufa Waripamo, Special Assistant to Ex-president Jonathan on Domestic Affairs.
Several persons have been arrested in the last few days in connection with money they received from the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, many of which were used for the campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Ogundamisi’s tweet quickly went viral with many pointing fingers at Linda Ikeji who recently acquired a mouth watering property running into several hundreds of millions of naira at the Banana Island in Lagos.
But responding to the claim that she could be the person referred to, Linda Ikeji said:
“So, social commentator and activist Kayode Ogundamisi tweeted this today…he didn’t mention any names but I am now trending on Twitter. Many assume he’s talking about me…and you can’t blame them really. He said…popular! I’m somewhat popular! He said female.. I’m female…duh! Lol. He said Lagos…I live in Lagos…in a posh place called Banana Island..lol. ?#?Flipsweave?! ?#?Just? teasing!
So people are reacting and some actually believe it! That PDP or someone in the party gave me N240m? For what? Advert? This was why I didn’t want to get politics advert money in the first place o…and but then some of you advised that I do when I asked here and now see the gbege that I have entered…lol.
But seriously for the record…no party registered or unregistered, no human being dead or alive gave me N240m for anything. The only advert I did for PDP was a page background take-over for former president Jonathan… and they asked for the space after I did a page background take-over for APC’s Akinwunmi Ambode. (I’m sure you all saw it).
The two parties paid me same amount. I had a politics advert rate which I sent to everyone who wanted to advertise on LIB! And it was a few millions …which some of you followed to chop inside in the giveaway that April…lol. ?#?Kidding?!
Anyway, all these bad belle people looking for ways to bring a woman down…like I always say…you can’t! Except you’re mightier than God! Whether you like it or not, I’m a hardworking young woman who God chose to bless the work of her hand and is using me to bless others. Get over it! I am here to stay! Not going nowhere! *wink*.
