Cool FM’s On-Air Personality, OAP, born Ifedapo Oyerinde, popularly known as Freeze, has waded into the Halliburton scandal ‘hanging’ on the neck of the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari.
Recall that Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, had accused Mrs Buhari of being involved in the Halliburton scandal, stating that she was the person allegedly indicted by a US Court for transferring $170,000 to indicted US Congressman, Williams Jefferson, in the Halliburton scandal.
Fayose had also challenged the president’s wife to visit the United States of America to convince Nigerians that she was not the Aisha Buhari mentioned in the judgment convicting William Jefferson.
He said, “It is on record that the President has visited USA three times and his wife did not travel with him. Equally, she ought to have visited USA last year September to chair a United Nations programme but she sent wife of the Senate President, Mrs Toyin Saraki to represent her.
The president’s wife had however on several occasions denied involvement in the scam.
But Freeze on Friday sent an open letter to the governor in what seemed like a ‘reawakening’ of the scandal claims.
On his Instagram account @daddyfreeze, the controversial OAP reminded Fayose that the president’s wife was currently in the US.
DAILY POST recalls that Aisha is on a ten-day visit in Washington DC, United States where she will attend a number of special events.
Freeze told Fayose: “Dear Governor Fayose, just in case you are too busy to follow the trends on Twitter, I will like to use this medium to inform you that the wife of the president is in the US as we speak.
“At this point I want to know if you will like to retract that your Halliburton allegation,” he quipped.
