Jonathan gave my ‘account details’ to Dasuki – Anenih

Former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, Tony Anenih, says former President Goodluck Jonathan instructed former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), to transfer the sum of N260m to his account.

Anenih’s revealed this in a letter recently written to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

The PDP chieftain said in the letter, that the funds was partly spent on a nationwide tour to reconcile aggrieved and feuding members of the party, as instructed by Jonathan.

Punch Newspapers reports that an aide to Anenih, revealed on Saturday that his principal really did make the dosclosure.

The aide was quoted to have said: “The former BoT Chair explained to the EFCC that he gave his account details to the ex-President on request, when he requested for a refund of expenses incurred while (he was) carrying out Jonathan’s instructions. Jonathan passed it (account details) to Sambo and Anenih was paid the sum of N260m.

“The former PDP BoT chairman also explained to the anti-graft agency that apart from the N265m he gave to Chief Olu Falae, Senator Rasheed Ladoja and Alhaji Tanko Yakassai, he also gave N25m to a former Deputy Governor of Sokoto State, and another N35m to a delegation of leaders from Katsina State.”

“Although most of the expenditure was incurred on the instructions of the former president for special political assignments, only N260m was refunded to Anenih by the former president.

“Whereas the refund of N260m was made through the office of the National Security Adviser, Anenih explained in his letter to the EFCC that he only provided his account details to the former president on request for a refund of the money spent.

“He also said in the letter that he was not in a position to ask the former president how he was going to source the fund or through which office the refund was going to be made.”
