The statement reads, “My attention has been drawn to a publication that has gone virile by a faceless group with the name, ‘Tinubu/ Shetima Associates’ purporting to have constituted a ‘Council for appointments’ for the purpose of nominating persons for various appointments by the in coming administration.
“The ‘Council,’ so ‘constituted’ is said to comprise of names of very prominent Nigerians across the country, including my name.
“Please note that I am not in any way aware of such an association or ‘Council’ and therefore disassociate myself from this ‘group’ that I know nothing about.
“My name and my hard earned reputation should therefore not be used for such an unauthorised body or similar bodies for such nefarious activities.
“The activities of the ‘group’ have been reported to appropriate security agencies.”
