National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party Uche Secondus has dismissed reports that he benefited from a multi-billion naira oil cash during Goodluck Jonathan administration.
PorscheClassy understands that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has released a document showing that N1.28 billion was spent on acquiring luxury vehicles for him and the party’s ex-national chairman Adamu Muazu and Senator Albert Bassey.
It was learned that the PDP leader got vehicles or gifts worth N310million-N472.5million; Mua’zu, N504, 500,000 and Bassey, N303m.
Secondus, in his reaction to this development, referred to it as blackmail.
Speaking through his spokesman, Ike Abonyi, Secondus said, “We are already in court on some of these allegations. If anybody has anything to prove, let him go to court. We know that this is a continuation of blackmail and media trial against the PDP national chairman.”
The EFCC document also reveals that about N250million was traced to Secondus as remittance in two tranches from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).
According to the document, out of the cash, N50million was collected by Uche [Secondus] on November 7, 2014 and one Chukwurah, who was a Special Assistant to Secondus, picked the balance of N200million in cash, on February 9, 2015.
The documents indicated that 50 vehicles were purchased for Secondus between June 28, 2013 and November 2014.
