ibrahim-shekarauThe Economic and Financial Commission (EFCC) has invited immediate past Minister of Education and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, leader in Kano State, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau for questioning over N950 million campaign funds.
Shekarau, EFCC sources said, was expected to be at the commission zonal headquarters in Kano by 10am today (Tuesday).
“Shekarau was invited and is expected to come to the commission’s office in Kano today, he had accepted that in his acknowledgement”, the sources said.
Shekarau, a two-term governor of Kano State, was invited in connection with the N23bn campaign funds scandal perpetrated by immediate past Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, said the source.
EFCC sources alleged that the money was part of $115 million (N23bn) given by Alison-Madueke and shared among top PDP politicians in furtherance of the re-election campaign of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
The immediate past Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Aminu Bashir Wali, who was recently quizzed by the EFCC, was said to have indicted Shekarau in his statement explaining how he disbursed the N950m he allegedly collected from Mrs. Alison-Madueke.
