WAR: PDP members reject housing allowance

The National Working Committee members’ choice to return the housing allowance deposited into their accounts from the partys coffers may have exacerbated the crisis roiling the Peoples Democratic Party, according to a letter they sent to the party’s national head, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu.Infomation Guide Nigeria

The news broke a few days after a media source indicated that PDP NWC members were upset about the alleged theft of the N10 billion the party earned through the selling of nomination forms.

But according to information obtained by The PUNCH, certain NWC members have begun sending the party varying sums of money.

A member of the NWC told The PUNCH how some of them got the funds.

“You know that because of criminal elements in the land, some of us did not activate our mobile phone bank alerts. When one unfortunately falls into the hands of these criminals, the first thing they do is to check your bank account. They will demand twice what they find there as a condition to release you.

“A Deputy National Chairman got N36m, another one got N36m too. Another top NWC member got N36m. The rest of us got N28m each. We are 19 in all.”

Our correspondent gathered that at least NWC members had returned the money.

In a letter titled, “Credit of twenty eight million, eight hundred thousand naira paid into my bank  account number, 3098567123 by the PDP,”  and addressed to the national chairman, one of the NWC members who returned his money wrote, “Please, be informed that the said payment has become a subject of media story carried with bad intention by them.

“I hereby inform you of the refund of the sum of N28,800,000 back to the PDP account number, 1000095003 at Globus Bank Plc. The receipt of the payment back to the account is attached.”

Another letter titled, Return of N36 million Housing Allowance paid into my account,” read in part, “I observed a malicious story reported in the newspaper of 26th September, 2022 where it was alleged that members of the NWC were offered humungous amount of money to silent us on an allegation of financial misappropriation to the tune of N15bn.

“This led me to browse through my various alerts and I discovered a transfer into my account and for personal reasons, wish to return it accordingly.

“Kindly confirm the receipt of UBA electronic transfer of N36m attached herewith. The letter was copied the party’s National Secretary.”

Asked for his reaction, Special Assistant Communication and Strategy to the PDP National Chairman, Simon Imobo-Tswam, simply said, “We have not seen the letters. So, I can’t say anything for now.”

Similarly, National Publicity Secretary of the party, Debo Ologunagba said he was yet to see the letters as they were not addressed to him.

“I can’t react to what I have not seen. I have not seen the letters. They were not addressed to me. Again, even if I see them, I will need to study them before speaking for the party.

“Again, there may be need to find out if the said letters were truly written by these people you mentioned,” he said on behalf of the party.
