Book presentation: Melaye, EFCC differ on invitation

By  | 

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said Senator Dino  Melaye did not invite the commission to his book presentation as he did its counterparts.

While the Chairman of the ICPC, Mr. Ekpo Nta, was in attendance, the EFCC was not represented at the event.

According to Sources in the EFCC, there was no letter of invitation from Melaye.

An operative of the anti-graft agency said, “We did not shun Dino Melaye’s book launch. The truth is that we were not invited at all. Even on Monday morning, we checked all correspondences but we did not find Melaye’s invitation. We would have gone if we were invited.”

When asked why he did not invite the EFCC to the book presentation, Melaye, in an SMS to one of our correspondents, said he invited the commission.

“I did and I have the acknowledgement,” he stated.
