Millions traced to Ex-president Jonathan's men by EFCC

Supporters of ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan are in disarray as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says it has traced N320m to the account of the Goodluck Support Group, a collation of campaign groups, which powered Mr Jonathan’s re-election bid for in 2015.

According to reports by Punch newspaper, the money which was sourced from the account of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) was distributed to the group over 100 pro-Jonathan groups headed by Jonathan’s Special Adviser on Political Affairs, Prof. Rufai Alkali. 

An EFCC source revealed that the money was channeled through the account of the Ministry of External Affairs Library, before it was moved to the Joint Trust Dimension Nigeria Limited. The JTDNL account was coordinated by the Director of Finance of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, Nenadi Usman, Punch reported.

In a related development, EFCC has begun investigations into the fresh contract scam involving the Office of the National Security Adviser. The commission has traced N300m to the immediate-past Chairman of the House of Representatives on Security and Intelligence, Bello Matawalle, whose name featured on the list. 

Similarly, the EFCC traced over N300m to one Mrs. Oluwatoyin Oluwagbayi, a former Special Assistant to Hajia Turai Yar’Adua, who is the wife of the late President Umaru Yar’Adua. It was also alleged that she received N300m from the ONSA through her company. Recall that there was confusion in the camp of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan over the N3.1 billion allegedly shared by six Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chiefs.
