Jonathan implicated in charges against Mimiko

27 July 2016, 16:31

Abuja - Former President Goodluck Jonathan has been implicated in fresh corruption charges laid against Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State, Herald reports.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has accused embattled Governor Olusegun Mimiko of using N15b from the federation account to sponsor his election.

The APC also claimed that Goodluck Jonathan personally ordered the release of the funds to Mimiko for his re-election.

This is coming after former NSA adviser, Sambo Dasuki and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Spokesman Olisa Metuh have in the past spoke about Goodluck Jonathan’s role in the arms deal procurement scam.

Dasuki had stated that the former President approved all expenses incurred by the NSA.

News24 previously reported that former presidential aide Dr. Doyin Okupe, admitted collecting more than N100million from the Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA) when Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) was in charge.

The former Senior Special Assitant (Media and Publicity) to former President Goodluck Jonathan said part of the cash was a N10milion vote to furnish his rented apartment.

He said former President Goodluck Jonathan approved the release of the funds from his security vote.
