Nwobodo, however, admitted to had received N100 million from the former national chairman of the PDP, Dr. Adamu Mu’azu.

The PDP chieftain noted further that he was the chairman of the contact committee of the PDP for presidential campaign for southeast, overseeing Ebonyi, Imo, Anambra, Abia and Enugu states.

Nwobodo disclosed that the fund he received from Mu’azu was meant for logistics, travelling and mobilization of party members in the zone for the 2015 general elections.

The battled chieftain statement reads: “The fund was properly disbursed to the states and dully signed by members of the committee for each state and accounted for to the party. At no time did Senator Nwobodo receive money from any person other than the then National Chairman of the party.

“It would be unusual for Senator Nwobodo and other members of his committee to query the source of campaign fund coming from the National Chairman of his party for official functions and purposes.

“This statement is meant to put the record straight and correct the impression making round some media on the alleged distribution of money by Bashir Yuguda as it concerns Senator Nwobodo.”
