Politics Jonathan Still Owing Us N24m For Producing His Posters – Printer



Olusegun Idowu, a witness of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in the ongoing trial of the then Director for Media and Publicity of Jonathan’s Campaign Organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said ex-President Goodluck Jonathan still owes him N24m for printing his campaign posters during the 2015 general elections.

Fani-Kayode is standing trial on an alleged N4.9 billion fraud alongside a former minister of State for Finance, Nenadi Usman, one Danjuma Yusuf and a company, Joint Trust Dimensions Ltd.

They are standing trial on a 17-count charge bordering on conspiracy, unlawful retention of proceeds of theft and money laundering.

In the charge, Fani-Kayode was accused of conspiring with the other accused to directly and indirectly retain various sums, which were proceeds of crime.

EFCC also said that Fani-Kayode allegedly committed the offences between Jan. 8 and March 25, 2015.

They all pleaded not guilty to all the counts.


Meanwhile, Idowu while giving evidence in court said the N24 million was part of a total of N54 million which was for pasting of posters and consultancy jobs, his company did for the ex-president’s campaign organisation during the 2015 election.

“My company is being owed N24 million for printing ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign posters during 2015 presidential election,” he said.

When asked by Fani-Kayode’s lawyer, Norrison Quakers, whether he had any direct dealings with Fani-Kayode, Idowu stated that he never had any direct dealing with Fani-Kayode.

Justice Rilwan Aikawa, however, after listening to the arguments, adjourned the case until Nov. 20, 21 and 22 for continuation of trial.
