The outgoing Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa, Mr Joel Madaki, has denied media reports that he promised to refund N5 million to the EFCC.

It was gathered that Madaki’s name was among those listed to have received money from former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Allison-Madueke for the 2015 Presidential Campaign.

Madaki in a statement issued in Yola said he never made such promise to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

“I never promised to return the N5 million.

“What I said was that if it is proven beyond reasonable doubt that the N5 million is from the Presidential Campaign Fund and when it is discovered that it was not used for that purpose, then the Adamawa PDP Secretariat and myself shall arrange to refund.”

Madaki acknowledged that he received N450 million as campaign fund for the state, but said that the money was delivered to a “Disbursement Committee” at the Government House, Yola.

According to him, the disbursement committee gave the party only N5 million out of the money.

“Since I was not a member of the distribution committee, as soon as the money was handed to the committee and they counted it to be correct, I left the venue”, he stated.
