PDP National Secretary Wale Oladipo Responds To Allegations Of Collecting N75 Million From Dasuki

Prof. Wale Oladipo

The National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Wale Oladipo, has actually rejected joining the alleged looting of the $2.1 billion safety and security vote allegedly diverted by  previous National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

He made the rejection in a declaration in Abuja on Monday in response to a magazine (not by PREMIUM TIMES) declaring that he obtained N75 million from Mr. Dasuki, a retired colonel, that was safety advisor to ex President Goodluck Jonathan.

The publication also said the PDP scribe pleaded with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to be allowed to refund the money.

Mr. Oladipo’s colleague in the national working committee of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, is currently undergoing trial in a federal high court, Abuja, for allegedly receiving N400 million from the former NSA, who is also being prosecuted for his involvement in the arms deal.

“Before and after the elections, I had no financial dealings with the Office of the National Security Adviser or any other government official,”
he said.

“The report is clearly politically motivated. I affirm that all my actions and communications are motivated by highest ideals of patriotism, transparency and commitment to national reformation.”

Mr. Oladipo explained that the monetary transactions he handled were merely in relation to his official duties as the national secretary of the party, insisting that at no point did he collect money from either Mr. Dasuki or any other government official.
