Jonathan’s N500m tears Edo PDP apart

25 February 2016, 15:21

Benin- City  The crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo state has taken a turn for the worst following the revelation by members of the party that the leadership of the party in the state led by Dan Orbih allegedly received the sum of N500m for the presidential election of former President Goodluck Jonathan without the knowledge of leaders of the party, reports Leadership.

The money which is part of the N2.1 bn that was shared by the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, was said to have been paid into the account of the Edo state PDP through Hartman Company, belonging to the former Chairman BOT of the PDP, Tony Anenih.

The lid was blown open after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) interrogated the  Orbih led executive to know if such amount was received in the state.

The party executive told the commission that the amount was received and was disbursed to party executives and leaders across the 18 LGAs of the state for the Jonathan campaign

The revelation angered both some members of the state exco of PDP and party leaders who expressed shock that they never knew that such money came.

It was gathered that this was part of the reasons why most of the leaders called for the removal of the Orbih led Exco.
