Answering questions from journalists after a meeting of the Board of Trustee (BoT) at the party headquarters in Abuja, Ayu said the issue of N1billion started when the came into office and needed money to hit the ground running.
He said the party wanted to take a loan, but the idea was latter shelved, adding that he did not collect any money as the National Chairman of the Party.
