PDP Says Former CBN Governor, Lamido Sanusi Awarded N84bn Worth Of Contract To APC Chieftains

The Peoples Democratic Party has alleged that an unnamed leader of the All Progressives Congress got a contract of N84bn from the suspended Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Mallam Lamido Sanusi.

The party said this was one of the reasons why the opposition party was pained when President Goodluck Jonathan suspended the CBN governor.

Apart from this, the party also alleged that another leader of the APC got another N5bn consultancy contract while Sanusi was in office.

The National Publicity Secretary of the ruling party, Chief Olisa Metuh, made the allegation at a press briefing in Abuja on Thursday.

Metuh was commenting on the unveiling of the APC manifesto, which he said lacked character.

He said, "The spirited defence for the suspended Central Bank Governor  mounted by the APC was because the leaders of the party benefitted immensely from Sanusi.

"A fraudulent N84bn contract was awarded to a leader of the party while another N5bn  was paid to another stalwart of the party as consultancy fee."

Metuh refused to give the names or the details of the contracts.

The APC is yet to react to the story.
