The Independent National Electoral Commission, , has reacted to the call by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to reject results of last Saturday’s and National Assembly elections across the country.

Recall that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had rejected earliest results being announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

INEC, reacting to allegations by the PDP, rejected the call for redress on the presidential results.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Chairman of INEC, Mr. Rotimi Oyekanmi, while addressing journalists in Abuja, said there was no basis for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to reject the results of last Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections across the country.

Oyekanmi said: “The commission is doing the right thing and would not want to join issues with anyone or party.

“The results being announced are not full of errors, they are valid. We have not concluded the release of the results. We have just released some and we still have results of other states to declare.

“So, we will continue with what we are doing successfully and as expected of us. What we are doing is the right thing to be done.”

Meanwhile, the candidate of the All Progressives , APC, Muhammadu Buhari, is currently leading in the presidential conducted on Saturday.

Results obtained from states collation centers by DAILY POST showed that President Buhari is coasting to victory as against his Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, challenger, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

While Atiku has gained more votes, defeating the incumbent President with wide margins in South-east and South-South states, Buhari himself has gathered great momentum in the North.

Alleged N702m fraud: EFCC closes case against Okupe

Alleged N702m fraud: EFCC closes case against Okupe Alleged N702m fraud: EFCC closes case against Okupe Doyin Okupe 0305 1024x620

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Wednesday, closed its case in a 59-count charge, bordering on money laundering, criminal diversion of funds to the tune of N702,000,000 against former Senior Special Assistant to ex- Goodluck Jonathan on Media, Doyin Okupe.

Okupe was facing prosecution by EFCC before Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja.

EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade disclosed this in a statement in Abuja.

He added, “At today’s proceedings, prosecution counsel, Ibrahim Audu presented his last and sixth witness, Shuaibu Salisu, former Director Administration and Finance in the Office of National Security Adviser ONSA, who presently works with the National Intelligence Agency, NIA.

“Salisu told the court that “Sometime in 2012, Chief Okupe came to the Office of the National Security Adviser, ONSA, and after their discussion, I was directed to make a payment of N50 million (Fifty Million Naira) to him.”

According to him, “Okupe provided his account details, where I paid the amount into the bank account of Value Trust Investment.”

He added that he was further directed by the ONSA to be paying N10 million monthly (Ten Million Naira) to Okupe for a period of over two years, which he said was reduced to a monthly N5million (Five Million Naira) towards the end of 2014 due to paucity of funds.

He said he made other payments to Okupe as directed, saying that at a point he was instructed to pay the defendant N6, 000, 000.

Further, Salisu revealed that sometime in 2014, the then National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki directed that he paid the sum of N35million to an account provided by Okupe and that he can also recall paying N50million in cash to Okupe on Dasuki’s directive.

He told the court that he only obeyed directives in all the payments he made to Okupe and didn’t know what the monies were meant for.

When asked if there were evidences of the payments, the witness reportedly told the court that he usually provided Okupe with the payment vouchers, which he usually signed.

When also asked if all the payments were captured in payment vouchers, Salisu was said to have replied in the negative.

Speaking under cross-examination by Okupe’s counsel, Akinlabi Akinbade, the witness disclosed that Okupe was not the only person that received payments from ONSA. “Anybody that the NSA directs that payment be made to, we make payment,” he said.

Also, Under same cross-examination, the witness said he had no reason to believe that the payments he made were from an illegal source.

In his words, “Why would I assume it was illegal? I was only directed to make payments,”

Further , he said some of the payment instructions he carried out while working in the ONSA came verbally while others came by writing.

He added that in the case of the payments to Okupe, all the instructions were verbal.

However, the matter was adjourned to June 26, for the defence to open its case.

buhari speaks on naming his cabinet Buhari speaks on naming his cabinet Buhari1 1024x683

spokesman, Femi Adesina, has said Muhammadu Buhari will announce his cabinet very soon.

Buhari is yet to name new Ministers, 26 days after he was sworn in for his second term in office.

The president has since made just three appointments: Mele Kyari as the group managing director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and renewal of Ahmed Idris’s appointment as the Accountant-General of the Federation (AGF) and renewing the appointment of Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

In his first term, it took Buhari six months to announce his cabinet.

But speaking in a chat with The Interview, Adesina said “the circumstances are not the same”, adding that it would not take as long as it did in 2015.

“Nigerians will not have to wait a day longer than necessary, before they have a cabinet,” Adesina said.

“And as the president himself has said, the process won’t take as long as it did in 2015, because the circumstances are not the same.”
