Politics Orubebe to be Arraigned for False Asset Declaration



The Federal Government has filed charges against the former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godsday Peter Orubebe, over alleged false declaration of assets and acceptance of about N70million bribe.


The four-count charge filed on behalf of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) by Peter Danladi of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) on October 8 this year is currently pending before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

It was gathered on Friday that the CCT has scheduled Orbube’s arraignment for November 9.

Orubebe was accused, in counts one and two, of failing to declare his ownership of two properties in Abuja.

In counts three and four, the ex-minister was alleged to have received N70million in bribe from one Pastor (Dr.) Jonathan Alota, whose company, Chemtronics Nigeria Limited, the ministry awarded contracts.
