The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh has said that the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) did not receive any campaign funds from any individual.

This comes on the heels of allegations that members of the party had squandered N2 trillion worth of funds meant for President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election campaign.

Metuh dissociated the NWC from the reports via a statement released on Monday, April 20, 2015.

It reads:

“The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Olisa Metuh has distanced the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) from the controversy surrounding the handling of the PDP Presidential campaign funds saying the NWC never received any amount from any quarter for the campaigns.”

“The PDP spokesman who stated this while fielding questions at a radio programme in Abuja on Monday also noted that President Goodluck Jonathan has denied ever spending the bandied N2 trillion on his campaigns but added that NWC was not involved in the management of any fund released for the campaign.”

“He further explained that all funds during the campaign were directed and managed by the Directorates of the Presidential Campaign Organization, which the NWC had no control over.”

President Jonathan has however denied that N2 trillion was spent on his campaign.
