Much Ado about alleged N100m from Presidency to Chibok parents

A spokesperson to President Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe, has denied that the President disbursed the sum of N100 million as compensation to parents of the abducted Chiboks girls.

In a tweet last night, Okupe said; “I want to make it clear &
emphatically 2(too) dat(that) PGEJ(President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan)
did not gv (give) any N100m to d(the) chibok visitors who came 2(to) d
villa. D story is absolute falsehood”.

Earlier reports claimed that the President had given parents of the
abducted school girls the sum of N100 million as compensation; an amount
which was said to have caused some serious dispute within the Chibok
community.
Also reacting to the report, another presidential spokesman, Dr.
Reuben Abati said, “The allegation is completely untrue. Nobody
distributed any envelope after the meeting. The meeting was held in the
Villa, a public place. After the meeting, the President left and the
parents as well as the children went into their buses in the presence of
the media.”
“There was no time after the meeting when envelopes were distributed or money was given,” he added.
Now that Okupe and Abati have said nothing of such happened, dear Nigerians, what do you think?
