'Those Who Squandered Jonathan’s 'N2 Trillion' Campaign Largesse' - Encomium

Jonathan (1)

Despite spirited denial by Dr Reuben Abatti, Special Adviser, Media & Publicity to President Goodluck Jonathan, insiders have begun to reveal faces of those who allegedly mismanaged about N2 trillion meant to influence voters in Southwest and across the country. Here are those behind the alleged campaign fund loot.

FORMER LAGOS GUBER CANDIDATE manipulated
It’s not once he had aspired to govern Lagos without success. The former lawmaker had cornered many other political appointments in this democratic dispensation.

That’s why he was in the position to disburse millions of dollars on behalf of Jonathan. Disappointingly, he couldn’t even deliver aspiring lawmakers who depended on him. Jonathan also lost in his ‘territory’.

TIME TO PROBE ANOTHER PARTY CHIEFTAIN

Equivalent of a retired Army General, this PDP chieftain also benefitted from the controversial N2 trillion campaign funds. A member of the PDP Board of Trustees, the godfather of many influential politicians in South west who also backed a guber candidate, allegedly pocketed over 70 million dollars (N14 billion!) From the controversial Jonathan campaign largesse.
