Kiki Osinbajo, daughter of the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has reacted to the allegation that she owns an Abuja property worth N800 million. The former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and blogger, Jackson Ude had made the allegation via a tweet. Ude had wondered and hailed accusations regarding where Kiki Osinbajo raised N800 million to invest in the property where she operates her business in Abuja.
“How did Kiki Osinbajo, VP Osinbajo’s daughter, earn N800 million she invested in the property housing her Glam’d Africa Beauty House in Abuja on 10 Durban Street, Wuse 2. Abuja?” Ude had tweeted. However, Kiki has refuted the allegation, stressing that she is a tenant in the said property.
Kiki, who named her landlord as Mr Musa Adams, urged critics to verify her claim at Abuja Geographic Information System, AGIS. The daughter of the Vice President clarified on her verified Instagram page. She wrote: “For me, it’s utterly unbelievable that a grown man will sit in his home and lie about me—a grown man who possibly has children of my age.”
“Like many young women in Nigeria, I work hard, it may be difficult for people like him to understand that a young woman can work hard and be a success. Anyone can verify the ownership of the property of Glamd Africa at AGIS in Abuja. I am a tenant in the property. My landlord’s name is Musa Adams.”
The landlord, in a statement Friday said the property was never, at any point in time, sold to the Vice President’s daughter or to anyone. Musa said that he remained the rightful owner of the property and that all documents on the house were still carrying his name and challenged anyone in doubt to check with the FCT authorities.
“In reaction to the recent reports on social media with regards to the above-mentioned property, I write to declare that I, Dr Ayuba Z Musa, am the rightful owner of the said property located at No. 40 Durban Street, Wuse 2, Abuja. “I have all my documents which are duly registered with the Abuja Geographic Information Systems (AGIS).
“I have never at any point sold or have agreed to sell my property to GLAM’D Africa, Miss Osinbajo or to any other person; this is completely false,” he said. According to him, Osinbajo’s daughter is his tenant and has been since April 12, 2017, adding that the tenancy was recently renewed for an additional period of one year.
Ude, had through his platform, recently claimed that the suspended EFCC chairman, Ibrahim Magu, had confessed to giving N4 billion to the Vice President.
