[The Presidential Blog] We hear the President has given orders on the $50 million linked to Rotimi Amaechi

It’s no longer news that there’s $50 million floating around the Nigerian recessed economy with no owner bold enough to come forth.

[At least, Patience Jonathan spared us that stress last year]

Yesterday, the EFCC “discovered” several amounts in different currencies in an Ikoyi apartment but as can be expected, no one came forward to claim ownership. It definitely did not stop Sahara Reporters, an online news outlet, from fingering a number of suspects.

They started with Adamu Muazu, a former PDP National Chairman on account of his links to the building but he quickly disclaimed ownership claiming he only sold the building to whoever occupies it and that he only owns one house in Victoria Island.

They also claimed the monies belong to a sacked NNPC boss on an allegation that she resides in one of the apartments in the building as well as an eyewitness account that claims a woman frequently deposited conspicuous bags in the apartment. But Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue, the former NNPC boss also quickly distanced herself.

This was the status quo and the facts that Nigerians had to go on a rage with when Sahara Reporters came back with reports of the National Intelligence Agency possibly being involved but Femi Fani-Kayode quickly jumped in to call foul on any NIA involvement. He boldly claimed that the apartment and the monies found in it belong to the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi.

Up until this point, we had not heard anything from or about the Federal Government’s involvement in the matter except for the fact that the court ordered the EFCC to temporarily forfeit the money to the FG till someone came forward to claim it.

But Sahara is back! And this time, they say that the President has waded in and asked the EFCC to deposit the money with the Central Bank on account of the NIA’s involvement.
