Allegation Of $2m Bribe To Oshiomole: NPA Boss Threatens To Sue SaharaReporters

Hadiza Bala-Usman


LAGOS NOVEMBER 17TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The managing director of Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, Hadiza Bala-Usman, has threatened to take legal action against SaharaReporters over the newspaper’s report implicating her in bribe scandal.
In a statement she personally signed, the managing director demanded a retraction or show proof that she gave $2million bribe to the national chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, through Farouk Adamu-Aliyu.
She said she would have no option than to go to court if the newspaper failed to retract the report or show proof of its allegations.
“My attention has been drawn to a recent report published by Sahara Reporters that I, Hadiza Bala Usman, was involved in bribery to circumvent the results of the primary election for the Kaduna Central Senatorial District. The report alleged that I handed over $2m to Farouk Adamu with the purported aim of buying the said senatorial ticket for Mr. Uba Sani.
“This is absolutely false, reprehensible and a total travesty, which negates every known principle of the noble profession of journalism.
“While I have respect for the role of the media in the development of our country, one would expect that a media platform like Sahara Reporters, whose promoters project themselves as respecters of the rights of the others, would have their facts right and present incontrovertible facts rather than sponsored conjectures that attack the integrity of law abiding citizens.
“I am by this statement, requesting that Sahara Reporters retract this libelous publication or present proof of their allegations within seven days without which I would have no choice than to seek legal redress in a law court,” she added.
