The allegation that former Minister of State for the FCT, Dr Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu refused to return the official SUV Prado Jeep, said to be worth about N200 million used during her period as minister is untrue.
This is according to one of the FCTA top management officials who wants to remain anonymous.
The official said the ex Minister returned all vehicles in her possession and were parked at the FCT Minister’s official log in Life Camp and the Director of Protocol took delivery of them.
The source further stated that, the ex Minister husband is a very well to do man and the wife has no reason whatsoever to refuse to return an official vehicle, “this is just an attempt to discredit her.”
The source further hinted that, her two aides in question, Special Assistants on Special Investment Programme (SIP) letter of appointment as FCT Focal Person expires in August and Special Assistant on Climate Change is one of staff of FCTA working in Development Control before her appointment.
Speaking on the issue of lobbying to become one of the president aides, he said, “she has been a diehard supporter of President Tinubu even when people were castigating him, she remained loyal to him, if the president deems it fit to reward her loyalty, I don’t see anything wrong in it.
