Lt Gen Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma (rtd) has reacted to publications in major national dailies where he was referred to as the Coordinator of Niger Delta Riverine Protection Program.
The report further quoted him copiously and ascribed delivering the mandate of the Program to him.
This was contained in a statement sent to the media by the Head of Media and Communications of the Presidential Committee on The North East Initiative PCNI, Alkasim Abdulkadir.
“With the foregoing Gen. Danjuma wishes to categorically state that the mandates he has from the Federal Government of Nigeria remains his role as Chairman of the Public/Private sector Fund known as the Presidential Committee for the Victims Support Fund VSF and also Presidential Committee on The North East Initiative PCNI which was recently inaugurated by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Most importantly he has stated that he is not purportedly related in any way or form to one Tikari TY Danjuma who heads the Program, Abdulkadir said.
He further stated that Gen. Danjuma advised newspaper editors and media organizations to ensure that news reports were always diligently edited, balanced and factual to avoid similar misrepresentations in the future.
