Dasukigate: Falae says he is not returning N100m

12 January 2016, 15:03

Abuja - The National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party, Olu Falae, on Monday said he would not return the controversial N100m he collected from a former Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, Tony Anenih, as ordered by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Punch reports.

The money was said to have been part of the $2.1bn from the Office of a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, meant for the purchase of arms to fight Boko Haram in the North-East.

The National Publicity Secretary of the SDP, Abdulahmed Isiaq, at a press conference which he addressed on behalf of Falae in Abuja, explained that the amount was given to him for onward delivery to his party.

The money, he said, was to assist in campaigning and mobilising support for the re-election of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.

He asked the Federal Government to hold Anenih and the PDP responsible for the source of the money rather than the SDP.

Falae insisted that the SDP would not return any money to the government coffers, since the money it got was neither from Dasuki nor the Office of the National Security Adviser.
