‘I got $30,000 not N100M from Yuguda,’ PDP chieftain says

Former Minister of State for Finance, Bashir Yuguda, who was indicted along with Dasuki, reportedly told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) that he had given George N100M out of the funds traced to him.
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Bode George has denied receiving N100 million out of $2 billion in funds which were allegedly laundered under the supervision of former National Security Adviser (NSA), Dasuki Sambo.
Former Minister of State for Finance, Bashir Yuguda, who was indicted along with Dasuki, reportedly told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) that he had given George N100M out of the funds traced to him.
George, in response, however termed the claim as “mischievous and deliberately fraudulent”, according to Vanguard.
“My attention has been drawn to another mischievous and deliberately fraudulent claim that I collected N100 million from Bashir Yuguda, the former Minister of State for Finance. This is another blatant falsehood, stripped of any iota of truth. This is yet again a depraved continuation of lynch mob journalism orchestrated by an online newspaper,” the PDP chieftain said in a statement.
The statement continues:
 “The salient fact is that very early this year, long before the election period, the party set up Contact and Mobilization Commttee for each zone to reconcile various factions and ensure a firm unity of purpose within the zones before the election. I was elected as the Chairman for the South-West zone.”
“The committee which was made up of 18 senior members of the party with distinguished history of honour and exemplary leadership, met at least 10 times in my office in Lagos. These people travelled all the way from every corner of the South-West, with three members representing each state. All of them are very much alive to testify to my assertions.
“Sometime in the middle of these deliberations, Yuguda came to me and said the party was reimbursing the 18 elders of the committee for their transportation, accommodation and feeding allowance for the work that was done.”
“The committee later submitted the report of its deliberations to the party and then wound up. For all these efforts Yuguda gave the committee only $30,000. That was less than N6 million at that time. Yuguda can never claim that he gave the Committee N100 million. That is the figment of the imagination of rascally scribblers purporting to be journalists. Again, facts are sacred.”
George was alleged to have received the sum alongside former River State Governor, Peter Odili who has so far made no comment on the allegations.
Dasuki is at the center of the massive money laundering investigation and is alleged to have supervised the looting of the funds which were meant for the procurement of arms for Nigeria's military.
He was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) on December 1, 2015 and handed over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) the day after.

The former NSA is reported to have implicated several prominent persons in the deal including former governors, ex-ministers and members of the PDP.
Dasuki’s lawyer however denied the report that his client had become an informant while the former NSA said that ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan was aware of the transactions he had made.
Jonathan has however denied authorizing the release of the stated funds despite the former NSA’s claim that he got the necessary presidential approval for the transactions.
