Linda Ikeji denies huge payment from #DasukiGate, claims it was just a “few million”


Nigeria sha?! 😆 😆 😆 Only in this country is there a sum as paltry as “a few millions”!

Yesterday, Sahara reporter and political commentator, Kayode Ogundamisi, tweeted that a certain female blogger had received N240m from the spoils of war in the entire #Dasukigate palaver:

While he didn’t mention any names, the rumours started flying fast and thick that it could be none other than the resident of a newly acquired property in Banana Island 😉

I wonder who that might be then? Hmmmm…

She was swift to respond with her own tweet:

Oh. Well. That’s alright then, isn’t it? Not the N240m we thought, just fewer millions? No vex jare, fine girl.

Two things come to light as I read this. The first is – funny how certain other high-profile blogs such as Bella Naija et al are not instantly thought of or dragged through the mud at the slightest hint of misconduct. What is it about Ms Ikeji that just makes her rub Nigerians up the wrong way?

The other thing wey pain we inside na be say…we sef dey write blog na? Which kain parsha be dis one? And we, we go take thousand thousand; no be till una call million. Tainz a bunsh.


Here’s her full response to the claim is below:

So, social commentator and activist Kayode Ogundamisi tweeted this today…he didn’t mention any names but I am now trending on Twitter. Many assume he’s talking about me…and you can’t blame them really. He said…popular! I’m somewhat popular! He said female.. I’m female…duh! Lol. He said Lagos…I live in Lagos…some posh place called Banana #Just teasing!

So people are reacting and some actually believe it! That PDP or someone in the party gave me N240m? For what? Advert? This was why I didn’t want to get politics advert money in the first place o…and but then some of you advised that I do when I asked here and now see the gbege that I have entered…lol.

But seriously for the record…no party registered or unregistered, no human being dead or alive gave me N240m for anything. The only advert I did for PDP was a page background take-over for former president Jonathan… and they asked for the space after I did a page background take-over for APC’s Akinwunmi Ambode. (I’m sure you all saw it). The two parties paid me same amount. I had a politics advert rate which I sent to everyone who wanted to advertise on LIB! And it was a few millions …which some of you followed to chop inside in the giveaway that April…lol. #Kidding!

Anyway, all these bad belle people looking for ways to bring a woman down…like I always say…you can’t! Except you’re mightier than God! Whether you like it or not, I’m a hardworking young woman who God chose to bless the work of her hand and is using me to bless others. Get over it! I am here to stay! Not going nowhere! *wink*. Make I go find una more news ojare!
