Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan wants us to move on, but not with election bribery probe still looming. The #CANJONATHANBRIBE Scandal is not over yet. Governor Romiti Amaechi’s earlier revelation that the Presidenc bribed some Nigerian Pastors with N6bn to convince their church members to sway vote for President Goodluck Jonathan is gathering pace.
Pastor Dikwa, who is the executive director of the Voice of Northern Christian Movement, confirmed the allegation, saying that the amount is even higher than what Amaechi said.
In the words of the Pastor: “It was N7 billion that was given to CAN leadership by President Goodluck Jonathan and who later disbursed N3million to the state chairmen of CAN. The money was handed over to CAN leadership on January 26, 2014.
“And some Pentecostal Bishops including Bishop Oyedepo also collected his share. Actually, the money is not N6b, it is N7b. This is what I know. One of the CAN officials from Abuja told me that they have collected the money. The corruption in CAN is terrible.
The presidency on Thursday kept quiet on the allegation by Pastor Kallamu Musa Ali Dikwa that it gave CAN the sum of N7b to campaign for the president ahead of the forthcoming presidential poll.
Efforts to reach presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati, last night to react to this claim could not yield result as his mobile phone did not go through. E-mail and text messages sent to him by Leadership, seeking his reaction, were also not replied as at the time of reporting.
