Chairman of the Adamawa state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Joel Madaki has revealed that out of N450 million released for the political campaign of the party in the state, his office got only N5 million.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, Chief Madaki disclosed that a committee was set up to disburse the N450 and he had no control over the activities of the party.
According to the PDP chieftain, the money was delivered to a ‘Disbursement Committee’ at the Government House, Yola, and only N5 million out of the money was given to the party.
He denied reports that he promised to refund N5 million to the EFCC. “I never promised to return the N5 million.
“What I said was that if it is proven beyond reasonable doubt that the N5million is from the presidential campaign fund and when it is discovered that it was not used for that purpose, then the Adamawa PDP secretariat and myself shall arrange to refund.”
On the N5 million allegedly collected, he said: “Since I was not a member of the distribution committee, as soon as the money was handed to the committee and they counted it to be correct, I left the venue.”
Recall that Madaki’s name was among those listed to have received money from former petroleum minister, Diezani Allison-Madueke, for the 2015 presidential campaign.
