Presidency reacts to report which alleges GEJ revealed location of Chibok girls

     Press release which alleges that president Jonathan has revealed location of Chibok girls is political dirty trick...

    No such press release was written or circulated by me. It is clearly the work of fraudsters who have hacked into my email account in an odious attempt to mislead the public at the expense of the credibility of the Jonathan Administration.
