No bribe was given to NCW members – PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to allegations that members of its national working committee (NWC) had been bribed.

In a statement on Friday, Debo Ologunagba, the party’s national publicity secretary, said the NWC members were not bribed, instead were paid for housing allowance. 

“For the avoidance of doubt, the PDP states in an unequivocal term that no funds were paid into the account of any member of the NWC as a bribe for any purpose whatsoever for that matter.”

Three members of the PDP NWC had reportedly returned almost N100m because as one of them – Stella Effah-Atoe – said of the “uncomfortable media reportage”.
