Fresh facts expose how Ekweremadu, others withdrew N8 billion, laundered funds in failed constitution amendment

Ike Ekweremadu, PDP, Deputy Senate President

Fresh details have emerged on how members of the National Assembly Committee on the Review of the 1999 Constitution withdrew N7.75 billion purportedly to amend Nigerian constitution.

PREMIUM TIMES had last week exposed how the federal lawmakers collected the money in tranches to purportedly alter the document between 2011 and 2015, but which former President Goodluck Jonathan refused to sign into law.

While the 49-member Senate Committee on Constitution Review led by the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, withdrew a total N4,500,000.00 for the exercise, the 53-member House of Representatives Committee headed by the former Deputy Speaker, Emeka Ihedioha, spent N3,250,000,000.00.

The documents, exclusively obtained by this newspaper, also showed that the Committee withdrew money from its account few days before the 2015 general elections. The presidential and National Assembly elections held on March 28.

While on March 2, it withdrew N83.33m, it withdrew the same amount 21 days later, precisely on March 23. Yet, on April 13, two days after the governorship election, it withdrew another N83.33m.

The fresh documents exclusively obtained by this newspaper which exposed bank transactions showed that the two committees transferred various sums of money from two National Assembly accounts – 321/212/606/1/1/0 and 321/212/606/1/1/3 domiciled in Guarantee Trust Bank to their own accounts in different banks.

While the House Committee transferred funds to its account in Zenith Bank, its counterpart in the Senate transferred monies to its three accounts domiciled in Bank PHB (now Keystone Bank), Oceanic Bank (now EcoBank) and United Bank for Africa.

According to the documents, the House Committee transferred to its Zenith Bank account N500m on December 16, 2011; N500m on May 17, 2012; N250m on August 6, 2013; and N250m on November 11, 2013; N250m on February 20, 2014; N250m on May 27, 2014; N250m on August 21, 2014; N166.5m on a date not specified; N83.5m on December 5, 2014; and N83.33 on March 2, 2015.

The committee, on different occasions, also withdrew huge amounts in cash, serially violating Nigerian money laundering law.

Part 1, Subsection 1 of the Money Laundering Act 2011 provides that “No person or body corporate shall, except in a transaction through a financial institution, make or accept cash payment of a sum exceeding- (a) N5,000,000.00 or its equivalent, in the case of an individual; or (b)N10,000,000.00 or its equivalent in the case of a body corporate.”

It withdrew N250m on October 29, 2012; N250m on May 8, 2013; N83.33m on March 23, 2015 and another N83.33m on April 13, 2015.

The Senate Committee, the documents revealed, transferred the sum of N125m on April 21, 2010 to Bank PHB; N250m on June 10, 2010 to Oceanic Bank; N125m on a date not specified; to Oceanic Bank and N250m on October 13, 2010 to Bank PHB. The transactions were made before the Committee was inaugurated in the 7th Assembly in 2011

It also transferred N250m on a date not specified to Oceanic Bank; N250m on February 9, 2011to Bank PHB; N500m on December 16, 2011 to Bank PHB; N250m on May 17, 2012 to Bank PHB; N250m on July 23, 2013 to Keystone Bank, N250m on November 5, 2013 to Keystone Bank; N250m on February 5, 2014 to Keystone; N250m on May 22, 2014 to Keystone; N250m on August 18, 2014 to Keystone; N166.6m on November 25, 2014 to Keystone; N83.4 on December 5, 2014 to Keystone; and N83.33m on February 27, 2015 to Keystone.

It further withdrew N250m on April 20, 2012; N250m on February 27, 2013; N250m on May 8, 2013; N83.33m on March 17, 2015; and N83.33 on a date not specified, in cash.

This again was a clear violation of Nigeria’s money laundering law.

PREMIUM TIMES could not reach Mr. Ekweremadu to speak on this story last week. He did not respond to calls to his mobile telephone nor replied a text message sent to him.

Mr. Ihedioha directed this newspaper to the Clerk of the House, Sani Omolori, who did not respond to our enquiries by phone.

The management staff of the National Assembly, including its Clerk, Salisu Maikasuwa, did not also respond to our enquiries.

Uche Anichukwu, the media aide to Mr. Ekweremadu, however issued in a statement on Saturday, denying that members of the two committees judiciously spent the huge sum on the fourth alteration of the Constitution.

“The Office wishes to state categorically that there was no “pocketing” of N8 billion by members of the Committee on Constitution Review in the 7th Senate chaired by Senator Ekweremadu,” the statement said.

The statement also claimed members of the 7th National Assembly and the 36 state assemblies did not fail in their legislative duties towards the realization of the fourth amendment of the 1999 Constitution.

Mr. Anichukwu said, “Members diligently and successfully piloted the most elaborate amendments to the 1999 Constitution through all the legislative due process. They were indeed amendments that held great promises for the nation’s democracy”.

The statement did not attempt to explain how the several billions withdrawn by committee members were spent or why committee members were withdrawing as much as N250million in cash, serially committing money laundering.

    Premium times, ulna dey make me laff! How can Ekweremadu survive without money laundering? He took bribe to Fr Mbaka and pocketed the rejected money. Ordinarily a combination of Ekweremadu and Ihedioha requires FBI watch, not Nigerian police. BVN can help unravel the truth.

    Buhari and Co want to remove all PDP members so that he will have secret to steal Nigeria money. All APC top members are the same thieves. Buhari too is a thief. All the leaders in the country called Nigeria are thieves.

    • metson

      Well you are entitle to your opinion, but you lack the impetus to call them thieves until otherwise they are proved guilty by a court of competent jurisdiction, you call all APC are thieves by your assessment and PDP are Saints with even the looting that they are telling Nigerians we actually did loot, well we will judge APC better at the expiration of their governance my brother, let’s be fair to them as they rule and let us see what will be the outcome of their own regime. Thanks

    If Premium Times refused to alert the Nation concerning the thieveries of Buhari-ati the fake PhD that KASU awarded him hours ago, and went on to deny us the juicy part of the story that Buhari -forced the NSA-Dasuki-his Fulani brother-to give him 5 bullet proof vehicles from President Jonathan, in addition to the more than 2.4b Buhari and Aisha took from the past government, then what moral right do u as a media house, have to indulge the Nation on these APC sponsored frivolities designed to divert our attention-from the stealing habits of GENERAL (CVU Buhari?) I have said it severally that Premium Times and Sharia Reporters, are the mouth organs of the Apes in APC–One day we shall be told how much the Fulanis and Yorubas ati the CIA -spent monthly to service Premium Times—–ati Sharia Reporter which collects over $45,000 monthly stipend from the CIA—-Aware—APC is now the most corrupt party in Africa-if not the most Satanic in the world-accorduing to Tunder Bakare-So save us the trouble of forcing us to read this demonic stories-from the house of Liar Mohamed–Separation is our goal—not the Luciferic rule of the Fulanis ati Yoruba traitors–in APC

    The Nigerian currency – the Naira – has within the last 36 hours depreciated to reach
    a historic low. It exchanged for 261 to a dollar 24 hours ago at the open market, which
    was a lowest ever rate of the Naira in history as at that date. By this morning the Naira
    cascaded to 273 Naira to one U.S dollar, sending jitters to both traders and importers.

        It Is better you sit down at your Premium Times desk deleting comments..rather than attempting comments which are nothing but brainless lies!

          • Basketmouth

            He is the greatest moron of the century because he could not understand the effect of the looting that went on in the GEJ administration with what is happening now. They deliberately laid a booby trap of financial Armageddon for Buhari administration but they shall fail and their shame shall be catastrophic.

      I understand your frustration, all conduit pipes used by the PDP to loot the treasury dry are being blocked by the current administration, it could really be frustrating, especially when your source of livelihood depends on the proceeds of such corrupt acts.

        Buhari knowingly received 2 SUVs bought with the money meant for weapons to fight Boko haram. Is this not fraud? Is this not a criminal offense? Mr Integrity!!! Why collect SUVs from Dasuki? Was Dasuki Minister of Transport or Minister of compensation?

        • No Bull …..

          Excellent attempt, but the SUV crap will not stick because Buhari as a former president was entitled to a live time security protection by the govt.
          Do you want to try again?

        • Julius

          All the ex head of states or President receives their security Transportations from the office of the NSA.. Dumb ass, it is security related for the head of states. Its in the budget !

    • No Bull …..

      If stealing money is ok with you, I wonder what Biafra state would look like?

    • Frank Bassey

      You are right bro……we call those Apes in APC the “Lying Liars”. They are incurable.

    THIS IS THE DASUKI GATE IN THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY.

    THE CIVIL SERVANTS ARE SUSPECTS NUMBER ONE.
    OF COURSE THE SENATORS MUST GO IN FOR THIS.

  • opy

    The prober needs to also be probed, who does oversight functions on the activities of NASS? PMB needs to extend his probe to include the activities of NASS. Glad power changed hands!

  • SECESSIONIST

    Premumuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!!….Why not give us FRESH facts about how Buhari has smuggled Nigeria into the coalition of Islamic countries fighting terrorism after he came back from a visit to the Islamic Republic of Iran? If you can’t give us fresh facts then give us sour or rancid facts. Yeye fowls!!!

    Nigeria is a circular state by all standards. The Muslim population can not confidently claim that their population is even in the neighbourhood of 40% of our total population, yet, at every opportunity the Muslim presidents enlist Nigeria in all associations designated for countries with 97% Muslim population. This is criminal and antithetic to the principles of fairness and respect for the other faiths in Nigeria. It is a direct affront to peace. The Senate should address this issue without delay. This is why we are calling for Biafran Republic, Niger Delta Republic, Ogoni Republic etc etc so that countries can fraternize based on its values. Senate pls treat asap.

  • Frank Bassey

    We hear that one Mohammadu Buhari knowingly received 2 SUVs bought with

    WHAT A COUNTRY!!!!!

    Senators in Nigeria and the area boys and armed robbers in my neighborhood all smell alike.
    There has never been government in Nigeria since October 1st 1960 till date but thefts.
    Tafawa Balewa carried on with his own nearly ignorant but certainly backward recklessness.
    So did the illiterate Murtala Muhammed buy a horse whip to flog Nigerians as ‘governance’.
    Half-educated Olusegun Obasanjo carried a manly pregnancy with empty head all around.
    Yakubu Gowon did not know his right hand from his left hand in office as a plain naive fellow.
    Ibrahim Babaginda begot his only son – Sani Abacha – as the fulfillment of treasury looting.
    All these before the most execrable Goodluck Jonathan crawled out of the stream like a thief.
    What a country – oh dear, what a country, now ruled by a factually dishonest perjurer in chief.
    The meaning of a council of state is lost. All there is a phalanx of thieves, like a posse of rogues.

    • Tatafo

      ….Did you forget about the constitution? It says any body, educated or not, with or without WAEC can be president. It says even a Primary school education is sufficient….all bcos the Hausa Fulani to whom education is alien must be accommodated. But you and I allowed it. We kept quiet rather than revolt. Today it is the Waecless, certificateless and brainless. Tomorrow you will have Abubakar Shekau as president bcos he even managed to complete Junior Secondary and has his Certticate.

      • Jakadiya

        You missed the point. There is a great difference between going to school to acquire (buy) certificates and the ability to prove to the world that you are knowledgeable and educated. Imagine what happened under GEJ, a PhD holder. Chai! He was virtually controlled by people like Dokubo, Tompolo, etc. May God save us from the virus called education as perceived by certificated illiterates. To challenge you on education. How many Professors or Doctors invented the aircraft, ships, cars, nuclear weapons, bicycles, facebook, Twitter, Disqus, etc?

      Here yourself out first … Check out which office is responsible for security of former head of state of Nigeria and then criticize constructively. Hatred for Buhari has nothing to do with the heist being investigated. That people like aren’t even alarmed at the amount of stealing being reported is a sad commentary on our existence. You are suffering as a consequence of the activities of Dasuki and Co and you can only justify their sodomy of you and your likes and then castigate PMB. Get your medications.

    8. Is this Buhari who accepted moneys from Sylva who was facing EFCC charges, if that type of man, an accused thief can be the one to OFFICIALLY PRESENT Buhari’s nomination form, and then he SYLVA said HE BOUGHT THE FORMS FOR BUHARI. (Till date Sylva was not countered.) Is that the type of man that will refuse $300,000 from his Fulani brother?

    9. The Rivers state Jet that became Buhari’s personal Air Taxi, is that not Amaechi DIVERTING RIVERS PROPERTY for other use? When Rivers state bought the plane, was it to ferry a Presidential aspirant for a year and a half?

    10. The “80 percent of APC money was from Amaechi” that APC officially said before all of Nigeria, the man Buhari stood behind to go round Nigeria, what work does he Amaechi do? What is his line of business. Now if Buhari can collect Amaechi’s sorry River’s state money and aeroplane, why do you think he will refuse 300,000 dollars from Dasuki?

    11. And Buhari refused money and it did not become front page of Sahara Reporter, Nations, Daily Trust, Premium Times?

    12. Buhari that never attended State Council meeting under Jonathan can collect SUV and bulletproof car. What can he not collect?

    13. Dasuki gave Buhari a car. He must have called Buhari and Buhari knows it is not Dasuki that pays him his monthly remunerations. So why did he take the cars and MONEY from Dasuki?

    14. Again, I believe Dasuki did the right thing to get Buhari an armoured car and another for maybe his security. This is all part of the work of security votes and the leverage allowed the NSA to do what he feels will bring peace to Nigeria, including paying some people inexplicable money to share in inexplicable places so some people do not bomb, kill or burn.
    IT IS WHY EVEN NOW THE PRESIDENT AND STATE GOVERNORS CONTINUE TO HAVE IT AND SPEND IT AS THEY DEEM FIT.
    Policy decisions are not questioned. This public probe of the NSA is foolishness foolishness foolishness. Will Obama and his spending in the Middle East on ISIS and media including the Aljazeera and other propaganda etc etc, the US guns ISIS is holding, you think Obama or his the CIA or his SECRETARY OF STATE will be probed someday? You think you will have this public circus of an American security chief on how he spent money?

    15. I dare Buhari to probe all security votes of all states APC states and let us see how many times his own name will come up for receiving one thing or another.

    SECURITY VOTE IS SECURITY VOTE. It has never been questioned, it should never be. If we want to end it, then let them end it. As long as it exists, it will always be a president or his assigns war chest to ensure peace and all such matters INCLUDING PROPAGANDA

    BUHARI MUST HAVE COLLECTED $300,000 & CARS FROM DASUKI: NO DENIAL. – By Ena Ofugara, USA.

    1. Everything Dasuki has said has been basically true. Dokpesi did not deny collecting money to perform the service he did.

    2. Everything Buhari rejects makes the papers. If Buhari rejects anything like a rolls royce ride, it is good propaganda. What better propaganda than “Buhari rejects 300 thousand dollars bribe. Says “go and buy weapons with it” to Jonathan”?

    3. He did not tell Nigerians he was given bulletproof cars. The press tried to hide it. Google now and you will see how when we said it then, they said Buhari refused it.

    4. So you take the cars and reject the cash? You take the meat and throw away the soup? Does that make sense?

    5. And it did not make New in the Nigeria Media.

    6. Dasuki has repeatedly said he supported Buhari, not “voted” but “supported”, so how did Dasuki support Buhari?

    7. If it was possible to deny the cars, would Buhari not have denied them? Is cash not deniable unlike cars.

    • Buhari4Ever

      Your brain has never worked well in your entire life. Ijaws cannot see clearly because of morons like you

This is all part of the work of security votes and the leverage allowed the NSA to do what he feels will bring peace to Nigeria, including paying some people inexplicable money to share in inexplicable places so some people do not bomb, kill or burn.
    IT IS WHY EVEN NOW THE PRESIDENT AND STATE GOVERNORS CONTINUE TO HAVE IT AND SPEND IT AS THEY DEEM FIT.
    Policy decisions are not questioned. This public probe of the NSA is foolishness foolishness foolishness. Will Obama and his spending in the Middle East on ISIS and media including the Aljazeera and other propaganda etc etc, the US guns ISIS is holding, you think Obama or his the CIA or his SECRETARY OF STATE will be probed someday? You think you will have this public circus of an American security chief on how he spent money?

    15. I dare Buhari to probe all security votes of all states APC states and let us see how many times his own name will come up for receiving one thing or another.

    SECURITY VOTE IS SECURITY VOTE. It has never been questioned, it should never be. If we want to end it, then let them end it. As long as it exists, it will always be a president or his assigns war chest to ensure peace and all such matters INCLUDING PROPAGANDA

      I personally believe that you are 99.9% matured for neurological disorder examination as a result of absolute discord in articulation and paradoxical convergent in pedagogical comprehension. The issue is funds meant to fight Boko Haram, not the usual security vote. Do you understand?

    BUHARI MUST HAVE COLLECTED $300,000 & CARS FROM DASUKI: NO DENIAL. – By Ena Ofugara, USA.

    1. Everything Dasuki has said has been basically true. Dokpesi did not deny collecting money to perform the service he did.

    2. Everything Buhari rejects makes the papers. If Buhari rejects anything like a rolls royce ride, it is good propaganda. What better propaganda than “Buhari rejects 300 thousand dollars bribe. Says “go and buy weapons with it” to Jonathan”?

    3. He did not tell Nigerians he was given bulletproof cars. The press tried to hide it. Google now and you will see how when we said it then, they said Buhari refused it.

    4. So you take the cars and reject the cash? You take the meat and throw away the soup? Does that make sense?

    5. And it did not make New in the Nigeria Media.

    6. Dasuki has repeatedly said he supported Buhari, not “voted” but “supported”, so how did Dasuki support Buhari?

    7. If it was possible to deny the cars, would Buhari not have denied them? Is cash not deniable unlike cars.

      Everyone understands through your writing why you want your accusations and inuendoes to be true. It means nothing without providing evidence. You read here how account numbers for transactions are provided. Show the proof of the transactions you allege – if it was not transferred through an account, say cash…mention the place – whose house? Like Nwobodo said he was called and given money in Muazu’s house…mention who, where, when of the phantom $300,000 cash transactions…

      I really don’t know why you are still allowed in the US. For Gods sake, he accepted the bullet proof SUVs from government because he’s an ex-head of state and it’s logical that he get’s extra protection from the state. Must he ask where the funds to purchase the vehicles came from, especially coming from the office of National Security Adviser? However, he rejected the $300k because he could not justify collecting such money. Does that make sense to you. Don’t use your personal affinity to pecuniary objects as a metric to judge others. Given antecedents of Buhari in government and judging by his wealth accumulation tendencies, can’t you rationally visualize who this man is? Through sentiments to the gabbage bin.

        Don’t worry, Trump will soon become president and you can be sure he will be on the list of those that will not be allowed back.
