Ogun SDP disowns Falae over N100m donation

11 January 2016, 12:10

Abeokuta - The Ogun State chapter of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) has distanced itself from the N100m allegedly taken by its National Chairman, Olu Falae, to support former President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the March 28, 2015 presidential election, reports Vanguard.

The money was handed over to Falae by former PDP’s Board of Trustees Chairman, Tony Anenih.

Falae had said he had distributed the money among the state chapters of the party.

The money has been linked with the controversial $2.1b arms deal scandal.

The SDP in the state, however, said it did not receive any money from Falae.

The party, which is under the control of former governor of the state, Segun Osoba in a statement jointly signed by its Chairman, Olu Agemo and the Secretary, Clement Adeniyi  said it was never notified of or involved in any negotiation to partner the PDP or any other party for the purpose of winning the election or maintaining peace during the period, as claimed by Falae.

The party said it did not receive any financial or campaign logistics in form of assistance from the national secretariat of the party or any of its principal officers.
