Interior Minister, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo was on Tuesday spotted at the Presidential Villa, Abuja after being reportedly summoned by President Bola Tinubu.
It is thought that the minister was summoned by the President to discuss his reported relation to the four hundred and thirty eight million naira payment made to a firm by the suspended Humanitarian Minister, Betta Edu.
According to newsmen at the Villa, the minister simply said “It’s all good” when approached for an interview as he made his way out.
”I am not a signatory to the company,” he said.
“And actually, I was shocked because the company in question was a company where I was a director. About five years ago, I had resigned from my directorship.”
However, Tunji-Ojo had on Monday night, denied his involvement in the payment stating that though he founded the company ten years ago, he resigned from its directorship in 2019 when he contested for the House of Representatives.
