In a swift reaction, popular blogger, Linda Ikeji has refuted allegations that she was paid a whooping N240 million by the office of the ex-National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.
She was reacting to an insinuation by social media commentator, Kayode Ogundamisi who hinted that a certain popular female blogger based in Lagos was paid N240 million. He did not name his source.
Dasuki is being investigated for the diversion of N32 billion by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).
Ogundamisi said, “Flash! Popular Female Blogger recieved N240 Million from #DasukiGate ? Dudafa Waripamo SA Domestic to former President Goodluck Jonathan said he gave N240m to a female popular blogger in Lagos.”
Linda Ikeji Reacts…
In clear terms, Linda denied any connection whatsoever with the embattled NSA and described the rumour as a wicked attempt to bring down a hardworking lady.
“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*. Make I go find una more news ojare!
