Aisha, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, has sued Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, for defamation.
Mrs. Buhari is dragging the governor to court for claiming that she was among those indicted in the Halliburton multi-million dollar scandal.
Recall that the President’s wife had on several occasions denied involvement in the scam and threatened to sue Fayose.
Similarly, a former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Lamorde, stated that Aisha was not one of Nigerians mentioned in the scam.
But Fayose has continued to insist that the President’s wife was involved in the fraud in which Nigeria lost huge sums of money, alleging that the Federal Government’s anti-corruption war was selective and politically-motivated.
Premium Times reported on Wednesday night that Mrs. Buhari had dragged Fayose to court for tarnishing her image.
The online portal added that it had obtained the court summons, dated July 20, 2016, that Aisha filed against the governor.
