According to Premium Times, the Kano state government is threatening to sue President Goodluck Jonathan’s spokesperson, Reuben Abati, and the Presidency for 419 (advance free fraud.)
The state is accusing him of using state project photos to promote President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election bid.
Premium Times reads:
Mr. Abati, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, had, in a 10-part series of tweets on Sunday, used photographs of the 10-storey Northwestern University and students of the Kano State Institute of Informatics to illustrate key projects he claimed the President Jonathan administration executed in the six North-West states of Kano, Kaduna, Katsina, Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara.
The 10-storey building in Mr. Abati’s illustration was a long-standing project of the Kano State government, which was only completed and made a campus by the state’s current governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso. The Kano Informatics Institute was also established in 2011, by the current governor.
