The interim Administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), Retired Maj.-Gen. Barry Ndiomu says the managers of the programme are not afraid of getting probed by anti-corruption agencies.
This is as he declared that the programme itself has nothing to hide.
Goldennewsng reports Ndiomu made this known in a statement issued on Tuesday by his Media Aide, Mr Freston Akpor, and made available to reporters in Abuja in response to calls urging the investigation and probe of the programme over alleged corruption and fraud.
The statement said the allegations made by one individual simply identified as Friday Iko are nothing but the figment of his imagination.
“The PAP heard of one Friday Iko urging anti-graft and related agencies to investigate the PAP over alleged corruption and imputing fraud in the disbursement of funds to the PAP cooperative.
“He had, among other issues, alleged that ‘some members of staff in the office are receiving huge amounts for welfare ranging between 15 to 10 million Naira’ for the monthly running cost.
“The monies mentioned are clearly a figment of the imagination of the newsmaker who intends to use the media to achieve malicious ends only known to him.
“The allegations are not only false but also baseless and a calculated attempt to commence another round of a smear campaign against the Interim Administrator and his dedicated management team,’’ Akpor said.
