Queen Zainab Duke-Abiola, one of the wives of the late politician, Chief MKO Abiola has stated that a former female minister in Goodluck Jonathan‘s government actually stole $9.3billion contrary to the quoted amount of $6billion by Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole.
Recall that Adams Oshiomhole made strong claims earlier on that the minister in question stole $6billion and also said she stole $1billion for the reelection of former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. From Queen Zainab Duke-Abiola‘s statements, the stolen money is actually $9.3billion.
Queen Zainab Duke-Abiola who is the Akasoba of Kalabari land in the Niger Delta claims that she has a relationship of over 30 years with the White House. In her chat with The Nation, she said if President Muhammadu Buhari should go back to Washington DC to confirm her claims.
According to the information available to us, the minister stole more than $9 billion, not Australian dollars, but US dollars. And what I am saying is that the money should be used to develop the Niger Delta. Use this to help the impoverished Niger Deltans. My relationship with White House is over 30 years. Americans are very eager to make sure that the money gets back. They want Nigeria to use that money for education.
Oshiomhole said it’s about $6 billion. Information available to me states that the minister and her associates siphoned away $9.3 billion. I’m watching the game that they’re playing. If they don’t publish the evidence, I have document to support this. If Buhari is not sure of his fact and figures, he should go back to Washington DC. If I read in the papers that they say $9 billion, I would keep quiet. But why are they saying only $6 billion?”
Recall that Queen Zainab Duke-Abiola paid N2million for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s nomination form to contest the 2015 Presidential election but was denied the opportunity because the party claimed that they printed only one form for its sole candidate, Goodluck Jonathan. Can this be payback time?
