Ex Governor Ibrahim Shema Implicated in N700 Million GEJ Election Loot
Former Minister of Mines and Steel, Arch. Musa Muhammad Sada, has told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of his involvement in the alleged N23.29bn poll bribery scandal.
During the grilling session by EFCC officials, Sada disclosed that he was authorised by former governor of Katsina State, Ibrahim Shema, to collect the sum of N700m on behalf of Katsina State and remit it to the account of the state’s former Commissioner of Finance on behalf of Shema, according to Sahara Reporters.
Sada is one of numerous persons being investigated by the anti-graft agency in the alleged N23 billion 2014 presidential election slush fund.
In a related development, a former Minister of State for Agriculture, Niger State-born Asabe Asmau Ahmed, revealed how she personally signed and collected the sum of N450m ( Four Hundred and Fifty Million Naira) for election purposes.
Asabe Ahmed also stated that she kept the sum of N105million (One Hundred and Five Million) for herself upon conclusion of the polls, while revealing that the balance was remitted to top officials of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Niger State.
The revelations come on the wake of President Muhammad Buhari’s clampdown on corrupt officials of the Goodluck Jonathan administration, that has revealed theft of public funds to the tune of $15 billion.
