Presidency disowns “women in oil” programme

president-goodluck-jonathan28 April 2013, Abuja – The Presidency on Thursday disowned a programme tagged “Women in Oil”, luring unsuspecting women to invest in shares and oil business to get the profits in 2015.

Dr Reuben Abati, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said this while addressing State House Press Corps in Abuja.

Abati said President Goodluck Jonathan did not approve of such programme and warned unsuspecting Nigerians against the scam.

He said the programme was intended to dupe the people of their hard earned money.

Abati said the Presidency was not selling such forms or asking people to invest in oil or any programme.

“The general public should be wary of such dubious proposal, invoking the name of the president in vain.

“The president has not asked anybody to go about selling forms and collecting money for people to make certain investments.

“It is in fact very disturbing that certain persons will not see through such scams for what they are and refused to be hoodwinked by persons who are purely opportunistic and who are engaged in purely criminal endeavours,’’ he said.
