A socio-political activist, Reno Omokri, has explained that the millions of Naira returned by members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Working Committee (NWC) over supposed bribery were for housing allowance.

INFOXCLUSIVE had reported that a few members of the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu-led NWC had returned cash totalling over N122 million sent to their bank accounts.

The NWC members who returned the cash included the National Vice Chairman (South-West) Olasoji Adagunodo, the National Women Leader, Prof. Stella Affah-Attoe, the Deputy National Chairman (South), Taofeek Arapaja, and the National Vice Chairman (South), Chief Dan Orbih.

The development came a couple of days after allegations were raised against the party’s Chairman Ayu by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.

Wike had during a media chat in Port Harcourt, claimed that Ayu collected N1 billion from an undisclosed presidential wannabe.

Reno, a PDP member and staunch supporter of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, said nothing bad could really be said about cash sent to the NWC members as being seen.

He wrote, “You are given a letter of appointment that comes with a list of entitlements, one of which is housing allowance.

“Does it make sense for the Peoples Democratic Party to ask people to move from their bases all over the country to work for the party and then not pay them housing allowances?”

The former media aide to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan blamed individuals working for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, of intentionally producing such reports to distract attention from Tinubu’s alleged ill-health.

“The non story of monies paid to PDP NWC members was released by The Nation. This is a coordinated release to divert the public’s attention from Tinubu’s catheter photo mistakenly unveiled today in an own goal by his aides,” he added.
