Fresh facts have emerged on the real reason General Martin Luther Agwai was sacked. The connection of his sack to his attendance of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo’s birthday is not the real saga. Biznesswatch reliably gathered that the disagreements has to do with the usage of SURE-P funds to bribe people to support President Goodluck Jonathan in the March 28 presidential election against Muhammadu Buhari of the APC.
For instance, state coordinators for President Jonathan’s campaign in 2011 are also the current state coordinators for SURE-P, this is not a mere coincidence but a well-orchestrated attempt to give the Jonathan campaign an unfair advantage at the 2015 Polls.Some of the coordinators are Alhaji Bode Oyedele, (Lagos); Mr. Joseph Ishekpa (Nasarawa); Alhaji Garba A. Kurfi.(Katsina): Alhaji Aliyu Mamman (Niger); Alhaji Adamu Yaro Gombe (Gombe); Hon Femi Akinyemi (Ekiti); Jarigbe Agbom Jarigbe (Cross River); Chief Abdullahi Ohioma (Kogi); Dare Adeleke (Oyo); Alhaji Al-Kasim Madoka (Kano) and Alhaji Kolo Bukar (Borno).The Lagos State coordinator Alhajo Bode Oyedele is a known ally of Mr Bode George, a PDP Chieftain. All of these people were placed at SURE-P to help direct resources to President Jonathan’s campaign.
General Martin Agwai as SURE-P chairman got 41% of the funds from the reduction in subsidy. This amounted to N15bn Monthly, FG appointed state coordinators got the rest.
