The governor who was allegedly caught building a hotel with $3million from the London Paris club refund has reportedly started searching for soft-landing, The Nation reports.
The newspaper reports that the governor has sneaked into the Presidential villa in the last 48 hours in search for help.
He was said to have offered to refund the balance of $2.5 million quietly to the EFCC without further investigations.
A government source said: “The governor was looking visibly disturbed, but it was obvious he was seeking help. The manner he managed his shuttle to the Villa suggested that he had something up his sleeves.
“I think he is ready to refund $2.5 million since one of his proxies has paid back about $500,000.
“The governor had audience with some government officials.
“We learnt he made a commitment to pay back quietly to avoid any political backlash.
“He also does not want to be exposed or his proxies subjected to trial.
“The truth is that this government will not give waiver to anybody or group in its anti-corruption campaign.”
