The Osun State PDP guber candidate in the last election claimed that… “I don’t know Dasuki from Adam. I never went to his office. The Federal Government is just using the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to victimise and embarrass me. They had said I received N600m, they later said N1.9bn, now they are saying N1.3bn. Which of these figures do they want to pin on me? They have kept shifting the goalpost at will.”
