Arms Deal; Dasukigate…The Roll Call Thus Far By Gloria Adagbon
? DASUKI – 2 Billion Dollars
(Assisting the authorities with the investment into extra-judicial spending of up to N643.8 billion and a further $2.2 billion and how the monies were shared)
? DOKPESI – 2.1 Billion Naira
(Admitted monies was for Publicity for the 2015 Presidential campaigns but Dokpesi’s family has denied the funds received wasn’t for Publicity. They say it is for a proposal presented to the Former President Goodluck Jonathan proposing a Multi Media Strategic Development Support Project to promote and project the achievements and highlight the challenges of his government. Furthermore, the family said the proposal was submitted to Jonathan in person by Mr. Dokpesi and his team in the presence ex VP, Namadi Sambo. Dokpesi’s family now knows more than him. Hmmm).
? BAFARAWA- N4.6 billion for Spiritual Purposes
(Issued a rebuttal after admitting, says he didn’t receive a penny).
? YAGUDA – N1.2 billion, N775 million and
N1.275 billion respectively
? ODILI – 100 Million Naira
? BODE GEORGE – 100 Million Naira
( says he don’t know Dasuki).
? ATAWODI – N600 Million Naira
(through a dubious contract to procure military boats. He awarded the contract to one Alhaji Rabiu’s Hypertech Nigeria Limited. The contractor was fully paid, but the boats were never supplied).
? DAVID MARK – N10.7 Billion Naira
(through a proxy and a company operated by his younger brother to fund his campaign. Mark has issued a rebuttal, says he is not involved)
So, far only Dokpesi has admitted he actually received N2.1 Billion Naira even though he is now saying the monies was for a legitimate purpose. Is advertising a legitimate purpose, if the NSA is responsible for advising the President on Security Matters or Advertising Matters? Dokpesi cannot wriggle out of it. Anti graft has got him because it is nothing more than conspiracy to steal and misappropriate public funds.
For the those already in EFCC net and still denying even in the face of overwhelming evidence, it is better to own to what they know for their own good. Because this new EFCC leadership will “comb and tooth pick” every piece of evidence to ensure that Nigerians gets justice.
There shouldn’t be any sacred cows. Anyone involved, no matter how highly placed, must face the music. Those mentioned but yet to be arrested should be invited by the EFCC without delay. The havoc their grand theft inflicted on our people and country is unthinkable. Finally, I recommend you read PUNCH EDITORIAL that follows below.
Thank You And God Bless Us All!!
