A former governor of Kano State and ex-Education Minister, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, has dared anybody to come up with proves that he received N25 million from the alleged N950m campaign fund shared at his residence in Kano before the 2015 general elections.
Shekarau, who stated this after his release from the custody of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in Kano, said he was ready to defend himself before any judicial body or court of law.
He explained that somebody mentioned his name among top members of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who were given N25 million each to campaign for the former President Goodluck Jonathan.
He said: “I told the EFCC that even if it is one naira that I was accused of collecting, I will not pay until it is proved.
“Whoever gave me the money should come out and explain where, when and how he gave it to me and anything short of that, I am ready to stay with the EFCC for years until the allegation is proved.”
The former minister said the operatives had searched his house and found nothing to nail him.
Shekarau said he was ever ready for any investigation and would not mind if the EFCC could trace his financial transactions in the last 20 years.
The former governor called on his followers to remain calm, noting that as a believer, he must accept destiny, be it good or bad.
The two term former Governor of Kano said “I considered my ordeal as a normal thing for it could happen to anybody and it is only up to us to accept this in good faith.”
