My Contract was Just for a Few Millions – Linda Ikeji Speaks on Receiving N240m from Dasuki
Popular Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji is in the middle of a bitter controversy as she has been fingered to be involved in the controversial $2.1 billion Arms deal scandal.
Social and political commentator, Kayode Ogundamisi, who writes sporadic independent op-ed articles for major Nigerian media outlets, nearly broke the internet last night when he tweeted that popular Nigerian female blogger recieved N240 million from the embattled former National security adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
The blogger who had a house warming party on Sunday in her newly acquired half a billion naira Banana Island mansion in Lagos trended ma$$ively on Twitter after Kayode’s alleged tweet went viral.
Kayode earlier took to his Facebook page and wrote; “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.”
As expected, the social media went abuzz, and the female blogger took to her famous blog to address the issue.
Below is what she wrote;
“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*.”
