Labaran Maku, the former Minister of Information has denied ever issuing any disparaging statement against the person of his principal- former President, Goodluck Jonathan.
Maku, in a statement released on Friday, said his ‘political enemies’ are attributing a false statement to him, in order to paint him as a traitor ‘who betrays his master’.
The former Minister said ‘every Nigerian knows’ that he’s staunch loyalist and believer in Jonathan and as such, would never be responsible for the ‘cruel propaganda and satanic attacks’ on the former President.
“This is the fourth time political enemies are using my name against President Jonathan in order to destroy him. The story is a piece of satanic fiction planted to destroy President Jonathan and to paint me as a traitor who betrays his master. This is wicked and ungodly. Every Nigerian knows that I am President Jonathan’s avowed loyalist and believer in the great job he has done for Nigeria.”
“I invite God to judge those who are behind this cruel propaganda and satanic attacks. Those behind these wicked attacks on President Jonathan faking me as the source are exactly the evil ones destroying the reputation of our country before the world.”
“I have forwarded the social media usernames involved in this heinous propaganda to security agencies to fish out the attackers and their sponsors for appropriate action.”
“It is very sad that we have reached this level of cruelty in the name of politics. I remain Jonathan’s loyalist and believer in his vision and achievements for Nigeria. Those hiding in the social media forest to perpetrate these evil propaganda should come out if they are courageous. They may hide in the social media but they can’t hide from God.”
