President Goodluck Jonathan paid $60,000 to arrange CNN interview?!

According to Premium Times, the presidency spends thousands of dollars in public funds to arrange interviews with foreign media outlets and recently the interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour

An American lobbying firm, Fleshman-Hillard Inc. reportedly helps to arrange the interviews. The firm, which reports to the presidency through Enyi Odigbo, Chairman of Lagos-based advertising and public relations company, Caser’s Group, was hired in 2010, without any formal agreement and budget.
