EXCLUSIVE: 2015 Polls: How Jonathan govt. used bullion vans to cart away N67.2bn cash from CBN

Former President Goodluck Jonathan authorised the withdrawal of a whopping N67.2 billion in cash money from the Central Bank of Nigeria between November 2014 and February 2015 for “special services,” PREMIUM TIMES can authoritatively report today.
The two cash withdrawals were made in the build up to the 2015 general elections.
Our sources said even more ‘curious’ large withdrawals were made from the bank during the period but we were unable to obtain documents to authenticate the claims.


In his days as the governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Solomon Peter Alamieyeseigha, otherwise known as DSP, was fondly referred to as the Governor-General of Izon Nation, because he presided over the only state with entirely Ijaw extraction and was seen as the leader of the struggle for the proverbial Resource Control in the Niger Delta. But his popularity and political career was cut short when he was impeached towards the end of December 2005 and replaced by his then Deputy Governor, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, who later became Nigeria’s President following the death of President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua in 2010.
DSP landed in prison and he was in a sordid state until his godson, Jonathan granted him state pardon, lifting him out of the political doldrums.

Anambra’s Fiscal Engineering Example

By Ifeanyi Afuba
Nigeria’s 36 states find themselves in a predicament today as centres of development without the requisite empowerment for driving economic growth. In theory, Nigeria is a federal state composed of coordinate central and provincial governments but in reality, the states are inferior entities to the federal government. By fiat of military decrees, the states became divested of ownership of the mineral resources in their territories, thus making the country an oddity of a federal state. Hangover from military rule has not afforded the political class recognition of the urgency for fiscal federalism. It is a measure of our unitary mindset that in 16 years of democracy since 1999, the country still operates a feudal revenue formula that allocates 52 percent of national revenue to the federal government at the expense of 36 states. The marginalisation of states in revenue allocation is however compounded by the volatility of other contending socio - economic forces.
