The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged its members to return all monies they collected from former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

The PDP also said that it didn’t send its members to collect money on its behalf for the 2015 general elections.

The comments were made by the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Ibrahim Jalo, during an interview with Punch on Saturday, January 9, 2016.

“When people say that this party benefitted from the money meant for arms, I laugh. This is because we didn’t as a party get a dime from the former NSA. The party therefore has nothing to do with anyone who has collected money from the former NSA. Anyone, who has collected money from him, should return it. They are on their own,” Jalo said.

“They will face trial without the party’s coming to their rescue. PDP is a clean party that has not taken money meant for the procurement of arms and ammunition or from the Federal Government.

“All those who collected money from Dasuki used their personal companies to do so. We didn’t send them,” he added.

The PDP had earlier said that it would disown any of its members who are found guilty of corruption.

Dasuki is being tried for allegedly supervising the laundering of $2.1 billion in funds meant for the procurement of arms for Nigeria’s military.
