The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has located the whereabouts of N15billion out of the N23.29billion ($115m) offered as bribe by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to officials of INEC as part of an elaborate plot to rig the 2015 general elections.
According The Nation, the bribe was for the purpose of compromising the result of the elections which the party’s presidential candidate Dr. Goodluck Jonathan lost to Muhammadu Buhari of the APC.

Fourteen directors of four oil firms suspected of substantially bankrolling the N23.29b poll bribery scandal have also been identified by EFCC, as some ex-Ministers arrested were battling for bail.

They are: ex-Minister of State, Foreign Affairs, Nurudeen Muhammad (N500,000,000) and ex-Minister of Foreign Affairs in the last dispensation, Ambassador Aminu Bashir Wali (N950,000,000).

Some of their former colleagues are said to be shocked by the alleged involvement of the ex-ministers in the disbursement of the slush funds.

Well placed sources said: “EFCC chairman Ibrahim Magu and his crack team have gone far in tracing more than N15billion of the N23.29billion shared to PDP leaders and INEC officials in the six zones to influence election results and stop APC from being declared winner of the 2015 presidential election.

“Some of the beneficiaries have started refunding the cash given to them. We have the list of all beneficiaries from Fidelity Bank. This is one of the reasons why we kept the MD of the bank and Head of Operations in custody. Our priority is to recover the bribe cash.

“By the time we get reports from all the geopolitical zones, we would have tracked down the bribe sum. Findings confirmed that the poll bribery cash was shared between February and April 2015 in a desperate and untidy manner.

“Our concern is not about any party but the use of proceeds from stolen oil to bribe INEC officials.”

The $115million (N23.29b) bribery scam was allegedly facilitated by the immediate past Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke.

One of the 14 bank directors has been quizzed by the anti-graft commission.

The big oil barons are believed to have contributed $88.35million of the $115million (N23.29b) remitted to Fidelity Bank by the ex-Minister.

Investigation revealed that the EFCC obtained the list of 14 directors of the firms from the CAC.

A source said: “From the list obtained from CAC, about 14 directors of the four oil firms involved in the bribery scandal have been identified.

“We are screening the list to know the roles played by each of the directors in the bribery offer. We will invite these barons for interrogation any moment from now. We will also release their names to the public soon.

“Some of these directors or owners of the oil firms are stakeholders in a few other oil companies which were highly favoured by Diezani.”

Meanwhile, the camp of ex-ministers in the administration of Jonathan was split following revelations on how huge cash was disbursed to some of their colleagues for the 2015 poll.

A reliable source in the camp said: “I am just ashamed to read about this scandal because I never knew such a scandal was being perpetrated. It is mind-boggling.

“Some of these ministers implicated in the bribery were pretentiously running to their colleagues to beg for money during and after the general election. They thought they had covered their track.”

Another ex-Minister said: “I am shocked beyond words. I was in the cabinet but more of a passenger. Even the ex-President was not fair to some of us.”
