I did not discuss Jonathan with Buhari, says Anyaoku 

Recall an earlier story published by us on this same matter as sourced from The Sahara Reporters.

Chief Emeka Anyaoku has just refuted the claim that he discussed Goodluck Jonathan with President Buhari.

In a press release he sent to the Guardian yesterday, the former commonwealth SG denied ever discussing Jonathan with Buhari and that his meeting with the president lasted only 25 mins as against the 2 hours claimed by sahara reporters report.


Former Commonwealth Secretary, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, yesterday debunked the online report published by Sahara Reporters, which alleged that he visited President Muhammadu Buhari on behalf of former President Goodluck Jonathan to halt the ongoing probe of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) government under the former president.

Describing the report as ‘utterly baseless and despicable,” Anyaoku said it was unimaginable that people could sit down and fabricate a story without a foundation. “It is utterly baseless and despicable because there is no truth in it; not at all,” he said.

“My attention has just been drawn to SAHARA REPORTERS’ utterly baseless and despicable story of my meeting yesterday with President Buhari.

The truth is that my meeting with the President lasted only 25 minutes and never, repeat never, was former President Jonathan mentioned in our discussions,” the former Commonwealth scribe said in a statement sent to The Guardian yesterday.
