POST-ELECTION: President Jonathan Demands 2trillion Naira Election Funds Refund

Following the defeat suffered by President Goodluck Jonathan and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, during the March 28 and April 11 elections, the President has asked the party and government officials who handled campaign funds to refund monies not spent, or those not judiciously expended, SUNDAY PUNCH can authoritatively report. Jonathan, credible sources said, has also set up a committee of five to get those with the funds to return them. Sources within the party and government told PUNCH correspondents that President Jonathan was disturbed that despite giving campaign coordinators, ministers, special advisers, close aides and friends, support groups and traditional rulers over N2trn in cash, most of them could not deliver their polling booths and local governments.

The President was said to have been further irked by the results of an investigation he ordered. The probe showed that some coordinators used campaign funds to buy very expensive properties, especially in Abuja, and luxury cars. Some of the funds have also been traced to the bank accounts of senior party and government officials who were charged with the disbursement of funds to voters and groups.

A reliable source within the Presidency told PUNCH correspondents that one of the President, who recently admitted to a few close aides that it would be difficult to retrieve all the funds, was bent on getting senior party and government officials who received funds to account for all monies collected.

Color me laughing. When people know you can get away with a lot this is bound to happen. His 5 years has been marred by corrupt practices and they let it slide without any rancor so this is to be expected. You reap what you sow.

@JESSE: though, GEJ may smile in public but he is leaving ASO ROCK as a sad man. lots of people manipulated him

True and he contributed. No one can step on you if you don't lie down for them to do so. Not to talk of people. He could've dealt with some people but chose not to. There's a reason he failed to win a re-election bid, he surrounded himself with idiots like FFK, pushed people out of the party with troubles and he didn't provide good party leadership. He just wasn't aware of the sort of power he had.
