EFCC probes Kwankwaso over alleged N2.5 billion campaign fund fraud

The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) has began investigation on the misappropriation of New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) campaign fund for 2023 elections.

The probe, Politics Nigeria understands, was instituted following the failure of the Kwankwaso’s led National Working Committee (NWC) to pay party agents that worked for the NNPP in the 2023 elections across the country.

THE EFCC has reportedly invited the national secretary of the party, Oginni Olaposi Sunday to substantiate the allegations of fraud levelled against Kwankwaso and his private secretary, Folashade Aliu,

Oginni’s petition also indicted the signatories to a bank account of (NNPP) which includes Prof. Rufai Alkali, Abba Kawu, and Dipo Olayokun.

“Consequently, the anti-graft agency may be compelled to probe the sudden wealth of Dipo Olayokun and how he acquired properties in choice areas of Abuja in less than two years of his tenure as signatory to NNPP’s account.”

Confirming the development Oginni said: “Truly, I was invited by the EFCC. I honoured the invitation and I was satisfied with the professionalism of EFCC officers. I answered questions related to the petition I signed on behalf of NNPP without any harassment or intimidation.
