The millions of Naira that PDP National Working Committee (NWC) members purportedly returned for bribes were for housing allowance, according to sociopolitical activist Reno Omokri.
Several PDP National Chairman Iyorchia Ayu-led NWC members reportedly returned money paid to their bank accounts totaling more than N122 million, according to a BEEHIVEGOSSIPS investigation.
The National Vice Chairman (South-West), Olasoji Adagunodo, the National Women Leader, Prof. Stella Affah-Attoe, the Deputy National Chairman (South), Taofeek Arapaja, and the National Vice Chairman (South), Chief Dan Orbih, were among the NWC members who returned the funds.
The revelation came a few days after Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, leveled accusations against the party’s Chairman Ayu.
In a Port Harcourt media interview, Wike said that Ayu had received N1 billion from an unnamed presidential candidate.
Reno, a PDP member and ardent supporter of the party’s presidential nominee Atiku Abubakar, asserted that there was nothing improper about money being thought to have been sent to the NWC members.
