Presidency Letter In Circulation Is Not Genuine - EFCC

It initially started like another tale by moonlight designed to set a new agenda and it most definitely achieved its purpose as the letter diffused into serious public discourse causing confusion within the presidency and opposition’s camp.

But, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has notified the public to disregard the letter which surfaced online yesterday suggesting that President Jonathan had ordered the agency to probe the financial operations of APC leaders, saying it is fake.

A statement from the agency signed by Head, Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren reads: "The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, wishes to alert the public about a letter supposedly from the office of the Chief of Staff to President Goodluck Jonathan, mandating the Commission to initiate discreet investigation against some prominent political figures in the country”.

The commission urged the public to discountenance the said letter as it is a forged document intended to mislead the people. “The features of the letter are markedly different from that on a genuine letter head from the office of the Chief of Staff to the president”, Uwujaren claimed.

The statement was accompanied with a prototype of original letterhead of the agency.
