Reasons We Can’t Go After PDP Officials — EFCC

Iyorchia Ayu, the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) may not have to answer to the EFCC over alleged financial scandal rocking the party, according to a report by Daily Independent.

Naijaonpoint Media reports that this came to light after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Sunday gave reasons why it may not invite Ayu and other members of the Nation­al Working Committee (NWC) over the financial scandal.

Six NWC members, includ­ing the Deputy National Chair­man (South), Taofeek Arapaja; National Woman Leader, Prof. Stella Effah-Attoe; National Vice Chairman (South-South), Chief Dan Orbih, and three others returned last weekend over N122 million which they described as “mysterious pay­ment” into the party’s coffers.

In separate letters to the PDP, the NWC members had said the money had been paid into their account without their knowledge and only realised it after a national daily reported the payment as bribe.
