Pension fund scandal:  Jonathan denies receiving any money from Maina

I didn’t receive any money from Maina — Jonathan

OLUSOLA FABIYI
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said he did not receive any money from the controversial pension fund.
He said there was no iota of truth in reports that he was paid N5 b monthly from the money.
His media adviser , Mr . Ikechukwu Eze , gave the explanation in Abuja on Saturday while reacting to a statement credited to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami ( SAN ) , published in a national newspaper last week.
The chief legal officer of the federation was said to have told a Senate ad – hoc committee that an “ ex -president was taking N5 bn monthly from the Pension Fund . ”
Eze dismissed the claim as “ a blatant lie hurriedly cooked up to divert the attention of the general public from the raging ‘ Mainagate ’ and other embarrassing scandals. ”
He added , “ We believe that the story was concocted as part of the unfolding grand design ( by the Buhari administration ) to always dodge responsibility and blame every evil act taking place in the present dispensation on the past (Jonathan ) administration .
“ In the first place, we do not believe that Malami made such a claim because he is in a position to know that it is simply not true . ”

Fake certificates scandal rocks Kogi civil service

Fake certificates scandal rocks Kogi civil service

Mr Yahaya Bello

•OVER 1000 DISCOVERED •WE ARE VINDICATED ―GOVT
Yinka Oladoyinbo Lokoja
THE Kogi State Government has said that over 1000 civil servants had been discovered to have joined the civil service of the state with fake certificates.
The government said the institutions that the workers claimed to have issued them the certificates had disowned them, saying such certificates did not emanate from them.
The director general, media, and publicity to the Governor, Kingsley Fanwo, on Thursday said the discoveries had justified its stands on reforms in the sector, assuring the people of the state that the reforms would serve their interest.
He said, “The administration of Governor Yahaya Bello has discovered the fact that the civil service needs a fundamental surgery to make it play its role of anchoring development. The conviction informed the staff verification exercise.
“We have now graduated to the stage of verifying the academic records of the staff and our discoveries so far are mind boggling.
“Over a thousand certificates have been confirmed to be fake by the various institutions which were alleged to have issued the certificates.
“These are the people stifling the system and crying wolf of non-payment of salaries. This administration will remain undeterred by the corruption fight back. What is right will be done for the greatness of our dear State”.
Fanwo said more certificates are being verified, insisting that those who forged certificates will be prosecuted before the end of the year as it is a “flagrant violation of the Public Service Rules and the Criminal Codes of the country.
“Governor Yahaya Bello is a hero who has placed the good of the state above his political safety. But the fact that Kogites are hailing his reforms shows that beyond politics, the people want to be served well.
“A teacher who forged his or her certificate to teach will have no impact on the academic development of his or her pupils. We must stop this trend for Kogi to develop.
“One of the key campaign issues of the APC is the fight against corruption and Governor Yahaya Bello will crush corruption anywhere it manifests”.

​I don’t have N1 billion to give Jonathan, Metuh tells court 

I don’t have N1 billion to give Jonathan, Metuh tells court 



 By Ikechukwu Nnochiri ABUJA——Embattled former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, has asked the Federal High Court in Abuja not to set aside the subpoena it issued to compel former President Goodluck Jonathan to appear as a witness in his ongoing trial.

  Metuh further challenged Jonathan’s insistence that the defendant must deposit with the court, for and on behalf of himself, the sum of N1billion in line with provisions of Section 241(2) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015, before he would mount the witness box. 

Jonathan had in a motion his lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome, SAN, moved before the court on Wednesday, urged trial Justice Okon Abang to compel Metuh to pay the N1bn to cover travelling expenses for himself and his security personnel from his home town, Otuoke in Bayelsa State, to Abuja and also for time that he might spend appearing before the court as President of Nigeria between 2010 to 2015. 

Jonathan maintained that the evidence Metuh is seeking from him would amount to an invasion of his personal right to privacy, and family life as provided for in Section 37 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999. 

He told the court that the evidence sought to be obtained from him was likely to expose him to a criminal charge, penalty or forfeiture. The former President further argued that the subpoena ad testifiandum Justice Abang issued against him on October 23 was vague, applied for and obtained on frivolous ground and in bad faith, saying it was meant to embarrass him as a person.

 Besides, Jonathan argued that Metuh was not a personal aid or his appointee and therefore could not have dealt with the President directly under any circumstance to warrant the invitation of the applicant to testify in the charge. 

He said there was no nexus between hiim and Metuh and the charge for which the defendants are standing trial. However, the ex-President said he was not doubtful of the fact that there was a contractual agreement between Metuh and the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki, retd. Ozehkome said: “The linchpin of this application is not that the former President is throwing doubts on transactions involving the defendants and Dasuki, but that he was not physically present when the transactions were going on, because he had many appointees.

 “My lord, because of this, we are saying that he will not be a good witness to state what actually happened regarding the transactions.

 “He can never be able to know details of transactions all his aides carried out within his over four years tenure in office. He is not saying that the transactions are fake or incorrect or fictitious, no! He is only saying that he does not know the details.

 “Whatever evidence he will be giving based on the subpoena will amount to hearsay evidence”. Neverthless, in a five-paragraphed counter- affidavit that was moved by his lawyer, Mr. Emeka Etiaba, SAN, Metuh said he does not have N1bn to give Jonathan who he said had in his own motion admitted that he (Metuh) served the nation well. Etiaba drew attention of the court to the fact that the bailiff earlier deposed an affidavit that he had yet to serve the subpoena on Jonathan. 

“This application is therefore not only speculative but premature and deserves to be struck out. “With respect to demand for deposition of N1bn, the 1st defendant in his affidavit averred that he does not have such amount.

 “We believe that such demand is punitive and meant to frustate the 1st defendant’s attempt at obtaining an evidence that will assist him in the defence of the charge against him before this court. 

“It is the view of the 1st defendant that from the first day that he was arrested, he made it clear that the release of the money was authorised by the former President and was released by the former NSA, Dasuki. 

“My lord this application simply seeks to set aside the subpoena and to save this nation the embarrasment of having a man who means a lot to the entire country as a former President, to step into the dock to give evidence. 

“My lord it is unprecedented, and the embarrassment could have been aborted if the charge against the 1st defendant was not preferred after he had disclosed to the EFCC the source of the fund for which the defendants are standing trial. 

“My lord in the circumstance, it is our position that this application be struck out”, Etiaba added. On its part, the EFCC, through its lawyer, Mr. Sylvanus Tahir, told the court that it would remain indifferent to Jonathan’s application. 

Meantime, the court is still entertaining arguments from all the parties, including Dasuki who is asking Justice Abang to hands-off the trial for the Court of Appeal to decide the merit of appeal he lodged to void subpoena issued to also compel him to testify in the matter. 

It will be recalled that Justice Abang had on October 25, handed the bailiff five days to serve the subpoena on Jonathan to enable him to appear as a witness in Metuh’s trial.

 EFCC had in the seven-count charge it preferred against Metuh and his firm, Destra Investment Ltd, alleged that the defendants had before the 2015 presidential election, received N400million from the Office of the National Security Adviser, ONSA, without executing any contract. 

It said the fund which was released to Metuh and his firm by the erstwhile NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki, retd,‎ ‎was part of about $2.1billion earmarked for the purchase of arms to fight insurgency in the North East. He was equally accused of money laundering. EFCC alleged that Metuh engaged in an illicit transaction that involved $2m

Group asks Buhari to suspend Baru over Kachikwu’s letter

Kachikwu’s letter on corruption in NNPC: SERAP asks Buhari to suspend Baru

Kachikwu

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, (SERAP) has sent an open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari requesting him to use his “good offices and leadership position to urgently refer the allegations of corruption and abuse of office against Mr Maikanti Baru, Group Managing Director Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for investigation, and if there is relevant and sufficient admissible evidence, for him to face prosecution.”

The organisation also urged Buhari to “suspend Mr Baru pending the referral to the EFCC and ICPC, and the outcome of any investigation by the anti-corruption agencies in order not to create the impression that your government is treating Mr Baru as a sacred cow. We urge you not to allow the allegations against Mr Baru go the way of past inconclusive investigations of allegations of massive corruption within the NNPC.”

In the letter dated 5th October 2017 and signed by SERAP executive director Adetokunbo Mumuni the organisation said that, “The allegations by Dr Kachikwu constitute grave breaches of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Act of 2000; and the UN Convention against Corruption (UNAC) which Nigeria recently ratified. In particular, the UN Convention against Corruption imposes clear obligations on Nigeria to investigate allegations of corruption such as the present one; prosecute suspected perpetrators and ensure return and repatriation of proceeds of corruption.”

 

The letter reads in part: “SERAP is concerned that years of systemic corruption within the NNPC and looting of Nigeria’s natural resources have had uneven consequences against the vulnerable groups of the society, including the poor, women and children, perpetrating and institutionalising discrimination, and jeopardising the needs and well-being of future generations. If left unaddressed, the allegations by Dr Kachikwu have the potential of undermining your government’s expressed commitment to returning Nigeria to the path of transparency and accountability.”

 

“SERAP believes that Mr Baru’s case presents your Administration with yet another rare opportunity to reassure a lot of Nigerians who may be worried about the direction of travel of your anti-corruption agenda. Rather than keeping silent on the matter, we advise you to use this case to show to Nigerians that no form of corruption will be tolerated in the NNPC under your watch.”

 

“SERAP also believes the recommended approach would help to address the growing public suspicion and pessimism about your government’s ability to fight high-level official corruption to a standstill, and to avoid any collateral consequences. It is absolutely important that the public should have complete confidence and trust in your Administration’s oft-repeated commitment to fight corruption and the impunity of perpetrators.”

 

“SERAP notes the recent allegations of corruption against Mr Baru by Dr Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, Minister of State of Petroleum and Chairman NNPC Board. In the letter to you Dr Kachikwu alleged among others appointments and postings in NNPC without due process; award of contracts above $20m without following the legal and procedural requirements for such contracts including the Crude Term contracts- value at over $10bn; the DSDP contracts- value over $5bn; the AKK pipeline contract- value approximately $3bn; various financing allocation funding contracts with the NOCs – value over $3bn; and various NPDC production service contracts – value at over $3bn–$4bn.”

 

To assist the government to achieve this public confidence and trust, effectively spread the gospel of anti corruption, and be on the right side of history, SERAP asked Buhari to implement the following recommendations:

 

Urgently refer the allegations against Mr Baru to both the EFCC and ICPC for further investigations, and if there is relevant and sufficient admissible evidence, for him to face prosecution;
Pending the referral to the EFCC and ICPC, to suspend Mr Baru from his position as Group Managing Director NNPC, pending the outcome of any investigation by the EFCC and ICPC;

AGF rules out bringing back Diezani to Nigeria,  says former Minister should face UK trial first 

Attorney General rules out bringing back Diezani to Nigeria,  says former Minister should face UK trial first 

Diezani Alison-Madueke

…says ex-minister should face her UK case

Olalekan Adetayo, Abuja

The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), on Wednesday said there was no need for the Federal Government to bring a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, back to Nigeria to face corruption charges.

Malami, in an interview he granted State House correspondents in Hausa at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, said the move was not necessary since the United Kingdom was already investigating the former minister.

Alison-Madueke had urged the Federal High Court in Lagos to compel the AGF to bring her back to Nigeria from the UK, where she travelled to shortly after leaving office in 2015.

She said she would like to appear in court in Nigeria to defend a criminal charge, bordering on alleged laundering of N450m, where her name had been mentioned.

The main defendants in the charge are a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr. Dele Belgore; and a former Minister of National Planning, Prof. Abubakar Suleiman.

But Malami said the UK authorities were already taking appropriate steps on the matter.

The minister however said if the Federal Government later saw any reason to bring the former minister back, it would not hesitate to do so.

He said, “The truth of the matter is that steps have been taken by the United Kingdom authorities on issues bothering on corrupt practices involving Nigerians.

“If Nigeria feels strongly that there is need to bring  Mrs. Diezani Allison-Madueke here to face charges of corruption, government will not hesitate to do that.

“As things are  now, there is no need for that since the UK Government is already investigating her and government will not take any decision that will jeopardise what the UK Government is doing.”

Malami said the government was working hard on issues of corruption and litigation in Nigeria and outside the country.

He said it would be wrong to conclude that the government was not doing anything on the matter, considering the fact that there is an existing understanding between Nigeria and other countries especially UK on the recovery of stolen funds.

When asked if Alison-Madueke can get fair hearing in Nigeria, Malami said, “Well, the issue is not about fair hearing now. We are talking about investigation first and is not within Mrs. Diezani Allison-Madueke powers to ask the Federal Government to bring her to testify in any case in Nigeria.

“Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke is facing charges of money laundering and acquisition of properties in United Kingdom. So, it is important to face the charges there than for her to come as a mere witness in a case in Nigeria.”

How former chief of Air Staff, others diverted N21b to personal accounts

How ex-Air Chief Amosu, others ‘diverted N21b ’
By Joseph Jibueze
An Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) investigation officer, Tosin Owobo, yesterday testified that three former Nigeria  Air Force (NAF) officials allegedly diverted N21 billion to their personal accounts from NAF’s.

He said they diverted the cash through several companies, which they registered personally. None of the companies had any transaction or contract with NAF, he claimed.

Owobo was testifying in the trial of a former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu (retd), former NAF Chief of Accounts and Budgeting Air Vice Marshal Jacob Adigun and  former Director of Finance and Budget Air Commodore Olugbenga Gbadebo.

They were arraigned before Justice Mohammed Idris of the Federal High Court in Lagos.
EFCC accused them of converting N21billion from NAF through various companies.
The companies are: Delfina Oil and Gas Ltd, Mcallan Oil and Gas Ltd, Hebron Housing and Properties Company Ltd, Trapezites BDC, Fonds and Pricey Ltd, Deegee Oil and Gas Ltd, Timsegg Investment Ltd and Solomon Health Care Ltd.

Led in evidence by prosecution counsel Rotimi Oyedepo, Owobo said N5.9billion was transferred from NAF’s accounts to Delfina Oil and Gas.

He said after the money was converted to dollars, it was  handed over to Gbadebo, who took it to Adigun, who in turn took it to Amosu.

He said Mcallan Oil and Gas received N6.1billion from NAF. Trapezites BDC received N3.6billion.

Owobo said Deegee Oil and Gas received N800million from NAF accounts. Timsegg got the same amount.

“These companies were not into oil and gas. The N21billion was moved from various NAF accounts without appropriation,” he said.

Owobo said Adigun admitted during interrogation that he opened Delfina Oil and Gas’s bank account and ran it and the others.

“There was no contract of memorandum of understanding between Delfina Oil and Gas and NAF,” he said.

The witness said Adigun incorporated Mcallan Oil and Gas and opened its bank account, which he also operated.

“There was no service rendered to NAF by the company,” he said.

Owobo said Deegee Oil and Gas’s bank account, which was also allegedly used to divert funds, was operated by Gbadebo..

“He controlled the account which received funds from NAF. There was no contract or MOU between them, and no service was rendered by Deegee Oil and Gas to NAF.

“Timsegg Investment also belongs to Gbadebo. There was no service rendered by Timsegg to NAF,” he said.

Owobo told the court that Adigun owns Hebron Housing and Properties, which also received funds from NAF, despite not rendering any service to it.

According to him, all the accounts had a single accounts officer, Mrs Funke Osinsanmi, at the bank where they were domiciled.
The EFCC operative said the account officer would receive instructions from Gbadebo, liaise with various Bureaux de Change operators to convert the sums to dollars, and hand them over to Gbadebo and other NAF “bank runners”.
Owobo said the banker introduced the owner of Trapezites BDC to Adigun, who eventually sold the company to him.
“We interviewed Adigun who confirmed to have received dollars from Gbadebo. He said he received instructions from Amosu on what the dollars were to be used for. Some were handed over to him (Amosu).
“We interviewed Amosu and he confirmed to have received dollars from Adigun and that all operations and financial transactions were carried out by his instruction to the director of finance, and that all the withdrawals from the NAF accounts were made via instructions from him,” the witness said.
Owobo said the funds transferred from NAF accounts were not part of the defendants’ salaries or allowances.
“The funds in these company accounts were not their salaries. The funds came from various NAF operations accounts which receive funds from CBN for general operations. These were not their salary accounts,” he said.
Owobo said some of the funds from Hebron Housing and Properties were used to acquire properties for the defendants.
He said a developer, Babatunde Omolehin, of Canon Projects, told EFCC investigators that he met Adigun who informed him that he owned Hebron Housing and Properties.
He (Omolehin) subsequently received N1.4billion from Adigun to develop some properties from him.
Owobo said the properties include 40A Bourdillion Road, Ikoyi, which is of 300 square meters; 12 blocks of flats in Parkview Estate, and another 12 blocks of flats on Victoria Island.
“The properties were not purchased in the name of NAF but by Adigun. He also purchased the properties in Abuja,” he said.
Owobo said over N600million was transferred to a company, Right Option Oil and Gas, for the purchase of two properties in the United Kingdom through Adigun’s brother.
According to him, the company, in turn, transferred about $3million to UK for the properties, which he said were not bought in NAF’s name.
“They were for Amosu and Adigun,” he said.
Owobo testified that N2.1billion was used to purchase diagnostic equipment from General Electric for Solomon Health Care, allegedly owned by Amosu.
He said General Electric confirmed receiving the funds from Solomon Health Care for the equipment, and that the money was transferred from Delfina Oil and Gas.
Owobo said so far over N2billion had been returned to the Federal Government by Amosu. Some properties, he said, have been temporarily forfeited.
The trial continues tomorrow.
