A grand conspiracy to blackmail the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Welfare, Hajia Sadiya Umar has been exposed by the New Initiative for Credible Leadership, NICL.
The NICL fingered the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, which has embarked on a wild goose chase with spurious allegations of corruption against the Minister.
Rubbishing the claims as untrue, NICL stated that HURIWA’s motive is to undermine the minister’s various social intervention programmes which were acclaimed as transparent.
In a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Rev. Steven Onwu, on Monday, the group accused HURIWA of following the script of their paymasters hell-bent on blackmailing Hajiya Farouq.
The New Initiative for Credible Leadership, however, advised the human rights writers to seek proper clarification before going to town to make weighty accusations.
It further urged the public to disregard HURIWA’s quest to squeeze the minister into submission so they can have access to funds meant for social intervention programmes.
