DSS Asks Buhari To Prosecute Oshiomhole For Making Millions Of Dollars From APC by MeanChris(m): 1:49pm On Nov 15, 2018
“Total $55 million is what Adams is alleged to have received. Some party chieftains claim it is $80 million,” a source aware of the contents of the report told SaharaReporters. According to report, $17 million is what Oshiomhole allegedly received as bribe from Zamfara: $10 million for him, $7 million shared between Farouk Adamu, former Minority Leader of the House of Representatives; Niyi Adebayo, former Governor of Ekiti State. He received from other party chieftains, too.


The department of State Services (DSS) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to prosecute Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for allegedly receiving at least $55million in bribes before and after the party primaries all over the country.

In October, SaharaReporters had reported how Oshiomhole and his cronies received up to N50million in bribes to award last-minute tickets to undeserving members of the party. The DSS subsequently grilled Oshiomhole last week, with reports emerging that the former labour leader had been asked to quit the office.

Oshiomhole responded by saying the DSS did not hire him, hence couldn’t demand his resignation from office. But SaharaReporters can now confirm that not only is the DSS asking for Oshiomhole’s removal from office, the agency is asking the presidency to prosecute him.

SaharaReporters can also confirm that the figures mentioned earlier are nothing compared to what the DSS documented in a report it forwarded to the presidency and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) some days ago.

“Total $55 million is what Adams is alleged to have received. Some party chieftains claim it is $80 million,” a source aware of the contents of the report told SaharaReporters.

According to report, $17 million is what Oshiomhole allegedly received as bribe from Zamfara: $10 million for him, $7 million shared between Farouk Adamu, former Minority Leader of the House of Representatives; Niyi Adebayo, former Governor of Ekiti State. He received from other party chieftains, too.

“Adamu was the collection coordinator,” said the source.

“Hope Uzodinma, the APC governorship candidate in Imo State, gave $3 million; Rochas Okorocha, Governor of the state, offered $500,000 but it was rejected; Dapo Abiodun, the APC candidate in Ogun State, paid $5 million. The DSS also said some of the money was paid into Oshiomhole's niece’s account.”

It is unclear if Buhari will follow the recommendation of the DSS for Oshiomhole’s prosecution, as SaharaReporters understands there is pressure from Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the APC, and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, to give the former Edo State Governor a soft landing.

“Their thought is that with the 2019 election so close, such upheaval will not be in the interest of the party’s aspiration for victory,” the source said.

cheesy

Which of the Buharis? Ohh!!! The one that came from Daura.
Asking Buhari to prosecute the pygmy is like asking Lucifer to probe the Devil.
They are the same. No significant difference. The only difference that persist among them is that one criminal is taller than the other.

I don't believe this because if any of these allegations could truly be substantiated Oshiomhole would be under arrest by now, after all he has no immunity from arrest so what is stopping the relevant authorities from arresting him if the evidences are there? If Oshiomhole truly wanted to make money, he would have seriously cashed out by taxing the likes of Rochas Okorocha and Amosun to allow them have their way.

Since Buhari and Tinubu selected Oshiomhole to be the APC Chairman, I'm sure he has made returns to his masters.

So corruption is not fighting back...it is living large.

"Adamu was the collection coordinator", said the source.... Rochas Okorocha, Governor of the state, offered $500,000 but it was rejected.
Looks like an organized crime ring with portfolio assigned! The prices of the items are so high $500,000 offer is too small. Imagine the straight face with which the money was rejected as if on principle basis when it was purely amount based!
I am not a fan of APC but an praying that this story should be false because, otherwise, the little remaining trust i have in humanity will suffer a big blow. If NLC's Mr Conscience of OBJ days can finally descend this low, then...

How many billions in naira

Politics it's a very lucrative business.

That ugly Oshomole is really balling after making so much money as a gov. for
8yrs and now these!

I'm sure he went to U.S.A after DSS drill to deposit huge sum in US using his wife and probably wife's cousins name to deposit them so the money won't be traced.

Remember the wife in not a Nigerian so it will be difficult to trace money in her cousins account.
