Members of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Board of Trustees and the National Working Committee might be under the searchlights again following the disclosure of how N10bn was allegedly disbursed by former President Goodluck Jonathan’s ex-Aide-de-Camp, Col. Ojogbene Adegbe, during the party’s presidential primary.
Reports have it that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had started investigating the PDP’s NWC and BoT members since Thursday when Adegbe was handed over to it by the Nigerian Army.
It was learnt that the EFCC had been interrogating the former ADC since he was handed over to them on Thursday.
Findings showed that the commission was beaming its searchlight on the PDP chieftains, including NWC and BoT members, who played leading roles during the PDP presidential primary.
As of the time of the primary in December 2015, the Chairman of the BoT was Chief Tony Anenih, while the Secretary was Senator Walid Jibril. The party’s National Chairman, who also headed the NWC, was Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu.
According to reports on Friday, the EFCC operatives were interrogating Adegbe on how he allegedly got N10bn.
It was also reported that the money was allegedly used to bribe the PDP delegates to adopt Jonathan for second term.
