Kogi: Audu Dismisses PDP’s N11bn Corruption Allegation

The former governor who expressed confidence on winning the forthcoming governorship election, said the reports were the handiwork of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

Audu is being prosecuted by the anti-graft agency (EFCC) for allegedly misappropriating N11 billion of the state’s funds while he was governor between 1999 and 2003.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja shortly after a closed-door meeting with the national chairman of APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, Prince Audu debunked the  claim.

When asked on how prepared he is for the governorship race in Kogi, Audu said: “We are prepared, we are going every nook and cranny of the state campaigning.”

On the reports that he would return a certain amount of money when elected, the visibly angry Audu said: “That is arrant nonsense, that is arrant nonsense. It is the PDP that originated the report and it will not help them.”
