Jonathan's campaign director returns N23m to FG

24 April 2016, 07:19

Abuja - The Financial Director of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organization, Senator Nenadi Usman, has returned N23 million in campaign funds to the Federal Government.

According to a Punch report, the development follows from Usman's arrest at the hands of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday.

Usman is alleged to have received N320 billion in campaign funding which emanated from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) during former President Goodluck Jonathan's presidential campaign run.

While being quizzed by the EFCC, Usman claimed that she carried out her duties upon instruction from Jonathan himself, not knowing that the funds belonged to taxpayers.

In addition, she revealed that she had set up a bank account during the build-up to the election, where donations were made through Joint Trust Dimenions Nigeria Limited and it was through this account that funds were released to relevant stakeholders.

Director of Publicity, Femi Fani-Kayode, had also allegedly received N840 million through the same account.

Usman is alleged to have agreed to cooperate with anti-graft officials and return outstanding funds.
