I Did Not Write Any Letter To Obasanjo - Former EFCC Chairman Farida Waziri

Former chairperson of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Farida Waziri has disowned a LETTER she purportedly wrote asking former President Olusegun Obasanjo to intervene to allow her secure a second term. Mrs Waziri said the letter was “total forgery” and threatened legal action against those responsible for the forgery. “The letter is a total forgery. I had no such contact or communication with former President Obasanjo,” she told PREMIUM TIMES. “I might consider legal action against them because what they have done is criminal.” In the letter, printed on a purported EFCC official headed paper, Mrs Waziri allegedly promised to reward the former president by turning the EFCC against his opponents and critics if he would prevail on President Goodluck Jonathan to approve a fresh term for her.
The letter was distributed to media organizations on Friday and has been published on several outlets. PREMIUM TIMES did not publish its contents because it could not immediately confirm its authenticity. The emergence of the letter, said to have been written in the dying days of Mrs Waziri’s tenure, followed recent exchanges between former President Obasanjo and Mrs Waziri over her credibility and performance as the head of the EFCC.
