Politics PDP Urges Members To Return Money Collected From Dasuki

The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party has called on its members, who collected money from the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), to return it immediately.

The party said it didn’t ask any of its members to collect money on its behalf during the last general elections.

The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Alhaji Ibrahim Jalo, stated this in an interview with PUNCH in Abuja last Saturday.

Jalo said he was happy that those who claimed to have received money from the embattled retired army officer had not said they received the huge money on behalf of the party.

Some influential members of the party are currently being prosecuted for allegedly benefiting from the money, which was meant to procure arms for the fight against the Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East.

Among those currently facing different charges before different courts in Abuja and with EFCC are Dasuki; the acting Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the party, Alhaji Haliru Bello; and the founder of DAAR Communications Plc, Dr. Raymond Dokpesi, Olisa Metuh, Tony Anenih.

“All those who collected money from Dasuki used their personal companies to do so. We didn’t send them,” he added.

Meanwhile, the party has faulted the release of a stalwart of the ruling All Progressives Congress and former military administrator of Kaduna State, Brig.-Gen. Jafaru Isa (retd.), who is said to be an associate of President Muhammadu Buhari, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
