Okupe, Benue Govt In Court Over N600m Contract Fund

As the appointment of Dr. Doyin Okupe as Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on Public Affairs continues to raise dust, Vanguard has reliably gathered that the aide allegedly has a pending case of about N600 million contract money with the Benue State Government at Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

But the national leadership of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday, faulted Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, on the appointment of Dr. Doyin Okupe as Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs, stressing that President Goodluck Jonathan was at liberty to appoint anyone into positions without permission from anybody.

Vanguard’s investigations at the Benue State Ministry of Works and Transport revealed that the presidential aide had in 2004 through his company, Messrs Value Trust Investments Ltd., allegedly secured a contract valued N2.303 billion for the construction of 230km of rural roads across the state.
