Garba Shehu has described the bribery allegation against the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, as the work of some opponents of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
He made the claim on Sunday in an interview with journalist, one day after a report emerged that Kyari allegedly received a bribe of N29m to award a contract.
Although the Presidency had issued a statement in a swift reaction to the allegation, Shehu said the report was nothing but a fiction.
He disclosed that Kyari has decided to brief his lawyers and to sue the media outfit that published the story, noting that enough opportunity was given to weigh the facts and investigate the allegation.
The presidential aide wondered why such report was published at a time when the general elections were a few months away.
