Ex-FCT Minister, Akinjide, Returns N10m To EFCC

A former Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory, Jumoke Akinjide, has reportedly returned the sum of N10m to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Sunday Punch confirms.

Sources within the EFCC told Punch that Akinjide, who was the Oyo State coordinator of the Goodluck Jonathan campaign organisation and some chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state, allegedly received N650m during the build-up to the 2015 presidential election.

A source at the EFCC said, “The former FCT minister and other PDP leaders in the state received some campaign funds during the 2015 presidential election. She has been visiting our Lagos office. Recently, she returned N10m to the Federal Government. She is cooperating with us and she is expected to return more money.”


It was learnt that the money that Akinjide allegedly received, emanated from a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, and disbursed by the then Director of Finance, Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Senator Nenadi Usman, who has since been charged with money laundering.

The money which was $115m but converted to N23bn, was said to have been kickbacks from some dubious oil contractors involved in oil theft.
