List of Kaduna Based Islamic Clerics Who Received Cash for Supporting Jonathan/Sambo Campaign Surfaces [Look]

Abusidiqu has obtained a memo which listed a number of Islamic clerics from Kaduna state penciled down for cash inducement for supporting the re-election campaign of President Goodluck Jonathan.

The memo, signed by one Ambassador Garzali Tanko, said to be the Director of Finance of the National Coalition for Jonathan/Sambo Presidency listed 13 of the clerics to benefit from various sums ranging from N1,000,000 to N500,000.

We however cannot confirm the authenticity of the memo.

The memo indicated that the payment is the second of such as the first phase was carried out in December.

  1. There are two points to this.:
    1. In Nigeria the idea of compensating attendees to a seminar or workshop has become the “norm” and on that basis the Mallams may be right IF they take whatever was given to them. However, given the quantum of the money -half a million to a million- gives room for doubt on the honesty of both the giver and the receiver.
    2. The second issue is far more serious’ If the Mallams were aware of the originator of the Workshop a -NATIONAL COALITION FORM JONATHAN/SAMBO PRESIDENT- then the entire transaction is a Fraud and false because they knew ir was a purely political bribe they took.
    On a final note, the Mallams surely exhibited some measure of ignorance or ta best a political leaning by answering to a partisan call and taking money from the organisers of the event ans they ought to know the implications of such recklessness.
