2015 elections: TMG accuses Jonathan's agents of N2bn bribe

30 April 2016, 19:05

Abuja - The Transition Monitoring Group (TMG) – a coalition of over 400 civic organizations revealed that agents of former president Goodluck Jonathan administration offered it a bribe of N2 billion for the purpose of compromising the outcome of the 2015 elections.

The allegation is coming on the heels of ongoing probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) into how $115million (N23.299billion) was  contributed by some oil barons  and shared to some electoral officials to rig the elections in favour of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.

TMG chairman, Comrade Ibrahim Zikirullahi, branded the offer a dubious proposal.

He said the body has now been “vindicated by the latest revelations from the EFCC about how some INEC chiefs and election monitors shared from N23.3 billion slush provided by former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Allison Madueke.”

Fidelity Bank, which handled the disbursement of the funds, has already refunded the N49.7million profit it made from the deal while the EFCC is said to have recovered N408.7million from some of the beneficiaries of the slush funds.
