POLITICS: The Main Reason Why Governors, Business moguls, others raised N21bn for GoodLuck Jonathan Presidential campaign

PDP Governors, Senators, Business moguls, technocrats and others gathered at the old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Sunday 20th December to make financial commitment to support President Jonathan's re-election campaigns.
At the fundraising dinner, 21 PDP Governors donated N50million each which came to N1.05billion. Business owners in the Oil and Gas sector donated N5billion while their counterparts in the Real Estate & Building made a donation of N4billion.
Players in the Transport and Aviation sector made a pledge of N1billion, those in Agriculture donated N500million while those in the power sector pledged N500m. Board of the Shelter Development Limited donated N250million while players in the Construction sector pledged N310million. Road Construction players pledged N250million while the National Automative Association pledged N450million. The Chairman of the fundraising dinner, Mr Tunde Ayeni made a donation of N2billion while the Chairman of SIFAX group donated 100million. The Rivers state PDP Chapter donated N50million.
Africa's Richest man, Aliko Dangote who was made the Chief Fund Raiser was absent at the event as he is said to be out of Nigeria but his representative, Joseph Makanju promised that the business mogul would make his donation known once he arrives Nigeria. 
With all the monies announced at the fundraising dinner as well as those from private individuals, a total of N21.27bn was realized.
What happened is normal and done everywhere in the world...presidential candidates gather friends and associates to donate towards their campaign. But what we Nigerians don't get is a private individual like Tunde Ayeni, the chairman of SKYE Bank donating N2billion. So, if he donates that amount to the president, is it for something he will get later from his administration or it's just goodwill?

A power sector donating to the Prez?. That should tell you all. The same sector that's saying they don't have money?. The same sector that's been borrowing from the FG?. Anyone who thinks that sector was privatized is really naïve.

@jessy: very laughable. but seriously. if jonathan loses, their money is gone.

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

Yep IF he loses. A big IF.

Endy Edeson

@jesse: to me. this BATTLE is a BIG one. No one knows who will eventually emerge. Buhari and Jonathan both have lots of supporters.

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

True that. Jonathan does have a trump card though. The power of INEC.

chai...i like dangote....he knew any thing can happen in 2015

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

Dangote doesn't need to show public support. He's a PDP member. One whom the Govt of Nigeria continue to favour and giving him powers to a monopolistic economy. Should there be a power shift, I'd not be shocked to see a probe of his wealth. Infact, I'd back on it. He's one of the oligarchs.

Endy Edeson

@jesse: his donation won't be made public.

Osuntokun David

@endy...dangote is wiser than all those mumu that contributed...or you he won't support buhari his brother from the north?

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

@ David. Buhari is an enemy the oligarchs won't like. Infact they don't like him. Shame that he's already a known quantity when it comes to his tolerance or lack of on corruption. If he was a fresh face they might think twice. That was how Putin successfully made Russia what she is today. He was someone they trusted and thought they could influence but they were wrong. All the oligarchs that tried to play politics paid dearly.

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

And money/power knows no brother. Buhari might be from the same region as Dangote but if their interests doesn't mesh he won't support him.

Osuntokun David


Enyinda Nathaniel Okey

people like Dangote dont donate publicly. they donate sectorally. all over d world this is d game. these are d ones that tell how a govt would be. business is interest. u use money to chase money. nothing strange.

@ThisIsBuhari pls read thisWHO IS FOOLING WHO???????The APC has been consistent in saying thatthe PDPhas ruled Nigeria for 16 disastrous years inwhichcorruption, impunity, insurgency, armedrobbery andseveral ills of society held sway.But at a very close look at the APC, I amseeing:1. Rotimi Amaechi - 8 years speaker; 7 year,Governor under PDP.2. Atiku Abubakar - 8 years Vice presidentunderPDP.3. George Akume - 8 years Governor underPDP.4. Bukola Saraki - 8 years Governor; 2 years,Senator under PDP.5. Timipre Sylver - 4 years Governor underPDP.6. Audu Ogbe - 2 years Chairmanship of thePDP.7. Aminu Masari - 4 years as the Speaker,House ofRepresentatives under PDP.8. Chris Ngige - 3 years Governor under PDP.9. Rabiu Kwankwaso - 7 years Governor; 3yearsDefense minister under PDP.10. El Rufai - 4 years FCT Minister; 2 yearsBPEchairman under PDP.....APC IS A GROUP OF CRIMINALS FROM PDPTRASHBINS... Gamade pdp chairman n senator is now Apc Even Sam ortom Pdp minister is now Apc

Ayoola Oni
