A prosecution witness 13, PW13, in the trial of former Plateau State governor, Senator Jonah David Jang and a former cashier in the Office of the Secretary to the State Government (OSSG), Yusuf Pam, on Thursday, May 12, 2022 told a Plateau State High Court that Jang allegedly diverted funds meant for the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in the state.

The witness, an Assistant Director in charge of Development with the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Mr. Musa Olashuko told Justice C.L Dabup that funds meant for artisans, small holder farmers, market women and entrepreneurs were diverted into the account of the Plateau State government and its agencies.

“We made an enquiry on the regular flow of funds between the credited account communicated to us by the state government and the Plateau State Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency (PLASMEDAN)’s account, and we noticed that funds were diverted to accounts related to the state government and its agencies and that no disbursement was made through the initial beneficiaries, i.e. the SME’s (Artisans, traders, small holder farmers, entrepreneurs and market women.), where about 60% of the funds was supposed to go to”, he said.
