When a former Director of New Media for the Peoples Democratic Party , Deji Adeyanju , recently revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari gave some selected entertainers N 2m each during a visit to Aso Rock in Abuja , it raised eyebrows .
Adeyanju had written on Twitter, “ So , some youths went to Aso Rock yesterday to see Buhari and collected ‘ thanks for coming ’ , N2 m each . Very soon , they will start telling us why it is good for Buhari to continue …”
However , while speaking with Sunday Scoop , Temitope Adekunle , aka Small Doctor , said he didn ’ t collect such money from the President and he didn ’ t think any other entertainer did also . He said , “ I am not aware that the President gave anyone N2 m . I was only invited to Aso Rock during the Ramadan period , which I honoured . Have you asked Sound Sultan or Kunle Afolayan and they said Buhari gave us N2 m each . Well, I don ’ t know if they gave anyone but I didn ’ t collect such money. ”
According to him , it was like a dream come true for him to dine with the number one citizen of Nigeria . He added , “ I have always worked hard and my hard work is paying off. I felt humbled and privileged meeting Mr . President . Looking at where I used to be , there has been a major turnaround in my life . Do you remember I was once a bus conductor ?”
