The Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Sustainable Development Goals (OSSAP-SDGs) has denied the report that it paid the sum of N141.1m to an Abuja-based restaurant two weeks before the expiration of the Buhari administration.

The office described the report by online media as not only misleading but false and a calculated attempt to smear the good image of the office.

A statement issued by the Head of Communications, Rotimi Ajayi said the office has been transparent in the construction of the Skills Acquisition Centre and a block of classrooms in Lagos State, as well as many similar projects across the country.

The statement noted that according to records provided by the company during the bid process, the company in question is duly registered with valid incorporation and tax documents with the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC.

“The allegation of it being a mere restaurant is equally from the figment of the imagination of the author, as the project was executed by a team of professionals with the necessary qualifications and expertise in construction and engineering. The structures were built in accordance with specifications and industry standards as confirmed by photographic evidence with GPS coordinates provided”, Ajayi said.
