Following the news in one of Nigeria’s leading news tabloids, in respect of President Jonathan’s demand for refund of monies given out to top PDP members and ministers to mobilize support for him and the party during the recently concluded elections which apparently did not go the way of the party despite the disbursement of N2trn in that regard, individuals, organizations and groups who have one way or the other benefitted from the largesse are now running from pillar to post to justify what the money was spent on.
Some top politicians in the South-West are said to be calculating what percentage of the bounty they want to refund for fear of prosecution. A source revealed that a top Nollywood star who got =N= 10M put a call through to a friend who was also a beneficiary to ask if they are also going to refund the money.
While some beneficiaries are fret, others are calling the bluff of Mr. President, given that he has just few days to relinquish power.
Nigerians are beginning to wonder what could be going through the minds of people like, Gbenga Daniel, Buruj Kasamu, Bode George, Musiliu Obanikoro, Teslim Folarin, Gani Adams,Tom Ikimi, PDP Northern governor…
It is definitely not the best of times for these individuals who might have invested their loots in some businesses, as the EFCC could be on their trail any moment from now.
