How We Shared N12 Billion – PDP Acting Chairman

Secondus of PDP

Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has narrated how the party shared the N12 Billion which the workers in the party’s headquarters in Abuja have alleged was embezzled to the hierarchy.

Secondus, who spoke to news men today in Abuja over the workers’ allegation, said that the money in question was not even up to the N12bn as alleged by the workers.

“The money is about N11.billion plus. We are not corrupt. We have our mechanisms on how the money is to be spent and shared among the party’s hierarchies.

“For example, we will share to the states, local governments, zones and then the national body.

“Besides, we also have money for the elections during the campaigns. Nobody, no member of the NWC had embezzled any money.”

Apart from this, he said, the party was the one who raised the money and was at liberty to spend it.

The workers, while reacting to the plan of the party to sack 50 per cent of them as stated in a memo to them by the party’s National Secretary, Professor Wale Oladipo, had asked members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) to explain what happened to the N12bn which was accrued to the party in the last few months.

The workers said if the money had been judiciously spent and saved, the party wouldn’t be in a financial mess to warrant the planned sacking of the workers. [myad]
