Following an alleged investigation that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) reportedly traced the sum of N100million to former SGF, Chief Olu Falae’s company- Marreco Limited, via a United Bank of Africa Plc account, the Social Democratic Party(SDP) yesterday denied that N100million was transferred to the company account of its Chairman.
This was contained in a statement issued in Akure by the state Publicity Secretary of the Party Remi Olayiwola. According to the statement, “The party and it’s national Chairman never had any business dealing or transaction whatsoever with either the CBN or the Joint trust Dimension Limited. We wish to inform the general public that it is the same amount sent by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the SDP as a result of their inter-party agreement that is now being re-presented to the public through another dubious channel in order to portray Chief Falae and the SDP in bad light.
“We strongly believe that this new story is yet another attempt aimed at further embarrassing Chief Falae and especially the SDP which the initiators now perceived to be towering in the Politics of Nigeria. The EFCC at one point said that the N100million was from Dasuki, a lie which has now been effectively debunked. Now they are claiming that the money was from a company known as Joint Trust Dimension Nigeria Limited, an entity totally unknown to Chief Falae and the SDP.”
