Patience Jonathan Earned N700,000 As Permanent Secretary - EFCC by HungerBAD: 2:42am On Oct 23, 2016
*CCB: Check her assets declaration form in Bayelsa

With N700,000 salary monthly as a Permanent Secretary, the ex-First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan would have to explain how she allegedly acquired nine houses, two hotels and one plaza during the tenure of her husband, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan

The anti-graft commission has retrieved her monthly salary records and other allowances accruable to a Permanent Secretary in Bayelsa State.

But the pay package, EFCC sources told THE NATION, does not seem to tally with the properties credited to the ex-First Lady.

Although she allegedly claimed that the $15million in her accounts was a gift, the EFCC might demand records of those who showered her with the cash gift.

It was unclear as at press time whether or not the EFCC will seize the affected properties in line with Assets Forfeiture Clause in its 2004 Establishment Act.

Preliminary investigation had linked the following assets to the former First Lady: Port Harcourt —— Former Customs Service officers mess; two duplexes at 2/3 Bauchi Street; landed property with blocks at Ambowei Street; 3 Luxury apartments of 4-bedroom each at Ambowei Street; and Grand View Hotel along airport road.

Others in Yenagoa are two marble duplexes at Otioko GRA by Isaac Boro Expressway; Glass House along Sani Abacha Expressway which is housing Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board; Akemfa Etie Plaza by AP filling Station, Melford Okilo Road; and Aridolf Resort, Wellness and Spa along Sani Abacha Expressway.

Detectives were however said to be probing if the affected assets were declared to the Code of Conduct Bureau by Mrs. Jonathan as a former Permanent Secretary.

The Bureau said her assets declaration form was in its office in Bayelsa State and not Abuja.

Findings by our correspondent showed that detectives of the EFCC have intensified the ongoing probe of the former First Lady.

A reliable source said: “Our operatives are still going ahead with the investigation of the former First Lady.

“So far, our detectives have retrieved her pay slip which showed that after all deductions, she was on monthly salary of N700,000. It is left to her to justify how the salary was able to fetch her assets.

“We demanded for her pay status in line with Section 7 of the EFCC Act. She was a former Permanent Secretary, who earned salary at the end of the month. She managed public trust and she has to account for it.

“We will also look into her assets declaration forms when she assumed office and after she left. If these assets are pleaded, we will proceed to the next stage of our investigation.”

Section 7 of the EFCC Act says: “The commission has power to (a) cause any investigations to be conducted as to whether any person, corporate body or organization has committed any offence under this Act or other law relating to economic and financial crimes.

“(b) Cause investigations to be conducted into the properties of any person if it appears to the commission that the person’s lifestyle and extent of the properties are not justified by his source of income.”

Asked if the assets will be seized, the source added: “We are yet to get to this bend of investigation.

“But we have read report where she claimed that the $15million in her account was a gift. Then the onus is on her to submit a list of the sources of the gift.”

But the source claimed that detectives stumbled on a petition against her appointment as a Permanent Secretary.

It was written by a civil servant who felt the civil service rules and regulations were violated.

“The aggrieved civil servant alleged that promotion of the ex-First Lady from an Assistant Director to a Permanent Secretary was done without any promotion examination.

“He also said the ex-First Lady did not spend up to a year as a director before she was promoted. He said the extant laws are clear that she ought to spend at least four years before moving to the next Grade Level.

“But some in Bayelsa State claimed that appointment of Permanent Secretary is at the discretion of a governor. They said it is basically political.

“You can see that there are many dimensions to her case. In fact, in her file, the Head of Service of Bayelsa State simply wrote: ‘Promote her all the same.’ We have certainly gone far on her.”

On her assets declaration form and exit form, a source in CCB said: “All her forms are in our office in Bayelsa where she was a Permanent Secretary.”

I have known this woman to be a clown but this her issue with EFCC is the height and pinnacle of it all. Why lead them on to keep searching your cupboard when they can leave with the finger bone already found instead of finding the whole skeleton. Imagine asking the names of her gift donors. Make she no provide names of dead people. And if you no get any cent from the loot and still support her, you will need your destiny to be washed

Dollarization Of The APC Primaries: How Amaehi Vanquished Atiku #saibuhari

The blogosphere was inundated with reports of the excessive sharing of dollars at the All Progressives Congress which took place during the latter part of last week.

One APC supporter and Special Adviser to Osun Governor on Environment, BolaIlori had blown the scandal open after he saw the beginning stages of the dollarization in action.

He took to his Facebook page and scribbled, “Crazy things are happening here!!! Some of these cannot represent the change Nigeria is yearning for. Excessive dollarization by one of the aspirants to is to say the least obscene. I have been involved in political process for decades now, I have never witnessed this volume of raw dollarization of party primaries. I only read about this kind of things in PDP primaries. A question been asked by conscientious delegates is that whoever can be giving out between $2000 to $5000 to…delegates certainly does not represent the kind of change Nigerians want…those who contributed to the pauperization of Nigeria now revel in dollarization… majority of Ondo delegates are still standing with Buhari but have been reduced from 85% to 70% within 24 hours…the remaining has gone with dollars ooo.!!!!!”

One has to wonder how Buhari was able to win the primaries in this era of stomach infrastructure where dollars are like the Biblical manna that God sent down from heaven to nourish the Israelites as they made their way to the promised land.

Sources close to the APC with knowledge of the way the Primaries unfolded have revealed that it was Rivers State Governor, Amaechi who flew back to Rivers State and returned to Lagos on Thursday morning with enough dollars to make Benjamin Franklin blush.

It has been revealed that Atiku offered the delegates $5000 each, but Amaechi doubled it to $10000 a pop. Thus turning the tables in favour of General Buhari.

Since his adventure into the APC, Amaechi has gone out of his way to prove himself a party loyalist, always the first to shoki or azonto at the many events the APC holds, which he himself is usually the chief sponsor.

According to party insiders, Amaechi has overtaken Tinubu as the major financier of the party. One does not need to wonder why he is always at President Jonathan’s throat over misappropriated oil wells or other such business. Anything that diminishes from the State’s coffers will have a ripple effect on his funding budget for the APC.

Almost two years gone and still waiting for the fulfilment of a campaign PROMISE that will cost him nothing!


PhockPhockMan:
But Buhari, in the document titled, ‘I pledge to Nigeria’ had also said that all his political appointees would only earn salaries and allowances as prescribed by the Revenue and Mobilisation and Fiscal Allocation Commission.

He said, “I pledge to publicly declare my assets and liabilities, encourage all my appointees publicly declare their assets and liabilities as a pre-condition for appointment. All political appointees will only earn the salaries and allowances determined by the RMFAC. I pledge, as Commander-in-Chief, to lead from the front and not behind in the comfort and security of Aso Rock, to boost the morale of fighting forces and the generality of all Nigerians.”

Paint peeling off the walls. Sheets for curtains. Broken blinds. A mangled wicker chair made settable with a board. An ancient stove with a giant hole. And there's also the pile of underwear in the living room.
What looks and feels like the most rundown frat house on campus is actually the Capitol Hill home of some of the most powerful men in Washington.
"Welcome to the Omega House," joked Dick Durbin, who is the second-ranking Democrat in the Senate.
"This is where I've lived for 31 years," boasted Chuck Schumer, the Senate's third-ranking Democrat.
It's hard to believe half the Senate Democratic leadership lives in these conditions, together. But they have for decades.
When Rep. George Miller, D-California, the third roommate and landlord, came in the door, he immediately ribbed the Senators as deadbeats.
"You guys get the rent from them?" asked Miller.
The house is so legendary that it inspired the new television series "Alpha House" on Amazon.com.
'How can this work?'
None of the real "Alpha House" members has seen the show, so they said. But they were all quick to say the characters -- who are Republicans -- are nothing like them.
"How can this work?" asked Durbin. "Republican Senators trying to make out they would live in a place like this."
They have a point, which may be why the creators of "Alpha House" cleaned up the fictitious home.
Maybe it's that life is stranger than fiction. Or, more likely, no one would believe prominent politicians would live the way they do in the real Alpha House.
"Wait a minute!" exclaimed Miller, the owner, when we pointed that out.
But he was feigning offense. Thirty seconds with the three and it is clear they revel in the notoriety of their living conditions.
Still, it has been years since they all gathered for this kind of interview and tour of the Capitol Hill row house.
The odd living arrangement began in the early '80s -- when Miller's family decided they no longer wanted to live in D.C., and moved back to the California district he represents.
Miller was living in the house alone until one night when there was a snowstorm and former Democratic Rep. Marty Russo of Illinois stayed over so he could walk to the Capitol.
They decided to make it permanent since it was convenient. They soon convinced Schumer, a House member at the time, to move in.
They had other roommates over the years that have since retired or been defeated, including former CIA Director and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, when he was in Congress.
But what is most striking about the place, aside from the mess, is that it's a time warp. They've done virtually nothing to update since Miller's family left three decades ago.
Jackson Browne and the Beatles
Records -- real vinyl -- line the bookshelf. One of them was Jackson Browne's "The Pretender," which came out in 1976. Another was an old Beatles album.
"The same exact records are there now as the day I moved in, 1982, 31 years ago," Schumer said.
Then there are the dust-covered books that were bestsellers in the early '80s.
The furniture is a hodgepodge of what the lawmakers salvaged from various relatives and other parts of their lives.
Durbin took one of the couches from his son, who was about to throw it out.
"He put it out in the trash -- it had to be 12, 14 years ago -- and I said it's better than anything we have. So we reclaimed it," Durbin recalled.
He said the coffee table is 46 years old -- the first piece of furniture Durbin and his wife bought when they were married.
"We're not afraid of the burglars," Miller said, "because we've been burgled twice and they took nothing."
The living room, virtually the only room on the first floor of the house, also serves as Schumer's bedroom. But "bedroom" is a generous term.
He sleeps on a mattress next to the kitchen. He half-made his bed for our visit, which Durbin said was a lot more effort than Schumer usually makes.
"I spruced it up for your coming here," joked Schumer.

Too much information

There is no bathroom on the first floor, so Schumer has to use one on the second floor, where Miller and Durbin have actual bedrooms, with doors.
"When you're my age, at four in the morning to trudge up the stairs to the bathroom, it's no picnic," Schumer shared.
Next to his mattress is a door to the outside, with broken and bent blinds.
"I can see the weather without having to get out of bed," Schumer said. "It's a special effect."
His ties are strewn over an old couch, which serves as his makeshift closet.
And then, there's the kitchen.
The freezer doesn't work. The refrigerator is a sight to behold, but exactly what you would imagine based on the rest of the house: beer cans and old food, including a baguette so hard that Schumer grabbed it and demonstrated how you can use it as a weapon.
The stovetop has a giant hole, which Miller said, perhaps in jest, was made by the rats they've found in the house -- which they still have traps around to catch.
"I thought the rats were in the Senate. I didn't know they came to the House," Miller said without missing a beat.
Since the only visible cookware is a kettle so rusty and old that Miller joked it was a gift from Ben Franklin, the three men resort to the easiest meal possible: cold cereal.
The counter is covered with bulk boxes of Raisin Bran, Mini-Wheats and Kashi. And there is a giant plastic bag of sweetener, which looks like it has been swiped from various fundraisers along the way.
"I prefer Raisin Bran. But I like the Mini-Wheats," Durbin said.
"When you come home late at night and you have to still stay up to work, my incentive? Some people like a nice, you know, jigger of scotch. Mine is Raisin Bran. It keeps me up and I read the newspapers," Schumer said.

Early risers

What is a typical day in the house like?
Durbin is usually the first one up and out at 5:30 a.m. when he goes to the gym. Next is Miller, who usually takes a morning walk around the monuments.
"They leave while I'm sleeping. We do it by design. We hate each other," Schumer said, laughing.

In all seriousness, they don't do much hanging out together here. Unlike the "Alpha House" characters, the real lawmakers are rarely home at the same time.
"He comes in at 12 o'clock at night talking on his cell phone," Miller said of Schumer. "Half his staff must be in Hawaii for picking up the phone at midnight."
It is hard to believe such high-profile politicians live in these conditions.
"When my wife comes, she will not stay here," Schumer confessed.
What helps make it work is that [size=13pt]they're only in Washington about three nights a week.[/size]
And, Miller said, they're good friends.
"We all have different schedules. We all have different interests. You can come back here. You can catch up with one another. You can catch up with the House and the Senate. We know one another's families, so you know what the kids are doing. You know what the grandkids are doing," Miller said.
"I might add location, location, location," Durbin interjected. The house is just blocks from the Capitol.
"It is close to where we work. And it's easy to get back and forth, and I think that has spoiled us," Durbin said.
Durbin sums up another reason he's lived here for 21 years, and Schumer for 31, this way:
"We love it. It's home."

Good question.
Let me see if our honourable SINators and representaTHIEVES can answer since they also receive mega millions from us every month without making any law.
