The funding for the 2015 presidential campaign of former President Goodluck Jonathan is still being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
An EFCC investigator, Shehu Shuaibu disclosed this while being cross-examined in a money laundering case before the federal high court in Lagos on Tuesday February 25.
He said the donations made to the bank account of Joint Trust Dimensions Limited, who alongside Femi Fani-Kayode, former minister of aviation and an official of Jonathan’s campaign organisation; Nenadi Usman, former minister of finance; and Yusuf Danjuma are defendants in the case relating to Jonathan’s campaign, is still being investigated.
The cash inflow into the company’s bank account was quoted as follows;
“N500m from Global Scan System Ltd on February 11, 2015; N300m from Diamond Bank on January 30, 2015; N250m from Castillo Torres BDC Ltd on February 11, 2015; N100m from Afrigate Energy Ltd, and N500m from Chief Emeka Ofor on March 13, 2015.”
Shuaibu also expressed hope of the investigation revealing if the money paid into the account are truly donations.
