Jonathan Still Owes Me N24m – Campaign Poster Printer
The Holy Book says "A labourer is worthy of his wages".
2015 presidential election has been won and lost but the memories linger on.
For Olusegun Idowu, whose comapany handled the printing of the posters used during the campaign of former President Goodluck Jonathan, the memories are not really good.
He claims his company is still being owed 24 million Naira by the campaign organisation.
The N24m, Idowu said, is part of a total of N54m poster pasting and consultancy jobs that his company did for the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation.
Idowu said his company was paid N30m cash in tranches of N6m and N24m for consultancy and printing of the ex-President’s campaign posters, while another N24m remained unpaid till date.
The media consultant stated this on Wednesday when he appeared before the Federal High Court in Lagos, where the then Director of Media and Publicity of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, is being prosecuted for alleged fraud worth N4.9bn.
Standing trial along with Fani-Kayode for the alleged fraud relating to Jonathan’s campaign, is a former Minister of State for Finance, Nenadi Usman, who was listed as the one of the defendants in the charge.
The third and fourth defendants in the case are one Danjuma Yusuf and a company, Joint Trust Dimensions Limited.
The defendants were arraigned before Justice Rilwan Aikawa on 17 counts bordering on conspiracy, unlawful retention of proceeds of theft and money laundering.
They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
