President Jonathan Demands Refund of N2 Trillion Of His Campaign Funds


Big trouble lands in PDP as Jonathan asks party leaders to account for and refund N2trn election funds.

Sunday Punch reports that President Jonathan has asked the party and government officials who handled campaign funds to refund monies not spent, or those not judiciously expended on his failed reelection bid. President Jonathan is said to be disturbed that despite giving campaign coordinators, ministers, special advisers, close aides and friends, support groups and traditional rulers over N2trn in cash, most of them could not deliver their polling booths and local governments.

Jonathan, credible sources said, has also set up a committee of five to get those with the funds to return them.

The President was said to have been further irked by the results of an investigation he ordered. The probe showed that some coordinators used campaign funds to buy very expensive properties, especially in Abuja, and luxury cars. Some of the funds have also been traced to the bank accounts of senior party and government officials who were charged with the disbursement of funds to voters and groups.
