Festus Keyamo, spokesperson of the President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation has broken his silence on the raging controversy between Mr. Charles Oputa @Areafada1 popularly known as Charly boy and political activist, Deji Adeyanju @adeyanjudeji over bribery allegations given to the former by Festus as alleged by Deji.
Recall that Deji Adeyanju had accused Charly Boy of collecting an un specified amount of bribe from Festus Keyamo ostensibly for him to work against PDP’s Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Charly Boy had fired back at Deji Adeyanji saying he was only crying foul because he wanted a share of the money to which Deji responded that he had been offered money on several occasions to which he did not bulge for the sake of his integrity.
However, Keyamo has refuted the claim, saying he had not paid a penny to anyone.
He says anyone who believed he paid a penny for any song by the latter needs to have their heads examined.
He tweeted: “1. I’ve been having some good laugh. Whoever thinks that I would pay a penny for a song by @Areafada1 that disses both the APC and PDP must have his/her head examined. If the quarrelling parties want to hurt their egos by bandying phantom figures, they should leave me out of it.
“2. As we’ve said before, some of us ran the PMB campaign on zero budget as volunteers whilst the opposition was paying $90,000 monthly to an American lobbyist (N400 million per year). It’s therefore preposterous to suggest that a 9-figure amount or any at all was paid for a song!
“3. In the world of entertainment, it’s the culture of most (not all) entertainers to raise their stock in the public by bandying phantom figures for their engagements & some others display phantom acquisitions on social media to attract attention and raise their worth for clients.
“4. I’ve always encouraged @Areafada1 & @adeyanjudeji, who are my long-time friends & clients to continue on the path they chose for themselves. I will hate to see them fall apart. Therefore it behoves us all to work together to put things right. I always enjoy vibrant opposition!”
