The Presidential Amnesty Office denied on Tuesday that the first Lady, Aisha Buhari had ordered the sack of a member of the staff of the office as reported by an online medium.
The office in a statement by its Media Adviser, Murphy Ganagana, said that the fairy tale by an online portal shoukd be dismissed.
The office said that the report that staff was sacked over alleged leaked documents were false.
Special Assistant (Media) to the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, Prof. Dokubo, said in the statement on Tuesday, that the report has no iota of truth but concocted to achieve a mischievous and sinister motive.
He clarified that the Office of the First Lady does not interfere in the affairs of the Presidential Amnesty Programme and at no time requested or directed Prof. Dokubo to sack any staff of the Amnesty Office.
Ganagana further noted that contrary to the report, no staff of the Presidential Amnesty Programme was sacked for any reason whatsoever, and there was no contract scam at the Amnesty Office. The statement reads:
He said: “The report on Pointblanknews is standing truth on its head; its claim that Prof. Dokubo was tongue-lashed by senior officials of the presidency who queried him over leaked deals, is a wicked lie that could only emanate from the devil. Prof. Dokubo was neither invited nor queried by the presidency over leaked deals or documents and he did not get any directive to sack any staff of the Amnesty Office.
“The latest missile fired at Prof Dokubo and the Amnesty Programme by Pointblanknews is in reaction to a recent failed attempt which crumbled and missed its target following a lucid presentation of facts on the alleged N3.2billion contract scam by the Amnesty Office to members of the public. This has no doubt punctured the credibility of Pointblanknews, and like a wounded lion, it is splashing muddied water at Prof. Dokubo to smear him.
