>>> Plus how Jonathan diverted N27 billion Naira of deceased workers of PHCN

Former president Goodluck Jonathan has been linked with the theft of 47 SUV cars by a former permanent secretary of the Ministry of Power, Dr. Godknows Boladie Igali.

It was also revealed that the former president aided an illegal diversion of N27 billion Naira insurance premium of deceased workers of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) for his campaigns.

It has been widely reported in the media that Dr. Igali who is from the same Bayelsa state with Dr. Jonathan converted the 47 brand new SUV cars to his personal use after he retired from the civil service as a permanent secretary.

However, 100 brand new motocycles were also recovered by the EFCC men from the former permanent secretary apart from the 47 SUV cars that were earlier reported in the media.

According to EFCC’s investigators, the 47 Sports Utility Vehicles and 100 motorcycles were bought for former President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign during the 2015 general election.

It was also disclosed that the sum of N1.5 billion with which the vehicles were acquired was allegedly sourced from the diverted N27 billion insurance premium of deceased workers of Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN).

Investigation showed that Igali is a kinsman of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and he assisted the Gooodluck/Sambo Campaign Organization with vehicles by diverting public funds for such illegality.

The EFCC was said to have intercepted the vehicles and motorcycles after an alarm was raised by an artisan, who was called in for repairs. An EFCC source said that there was “overwhelming evidence” against the former Permanent Secretary.
