Dubai properties owned by Nigeria’s top politicians have been discovered and exposed. The Sahara Reporters has, on Thursday 21st January, revealed a list of 15 names of politicians with alleged properties abroad especially in Dubia, United Arab Emirate (UAE).
Acting on the earlier directives from President Buhari by diplomats in UAE – till the end of March 31, 2016 – they are to compile the names of Nigerians with properties abroad.
See the list below:
#1. Former Nigerian First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan
She seem to be targeted on top of the list. She is alleged to have Three properties and several businesses in Dubia
#2. Ex-Governor of Akwa-Ibom State, Senator Godswill Obot Akpabio
A plush home located in Dubia has also been linked to Senator Chief Akpabio, although with his achievements in Akwa-Ibom State, he may have to ask to differ.
#3. Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose
He is currently the governor of Ekiti (2003-2006; 2014 till date) so it’s not so surprising that he also owns a house in Dubia. After all, he’s entitled to it, right?
#4. Former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke
He is reported to own a house in Abu Dhabi. Judging from all that positions, he must have saved tones of cash to afford a house there, I tell you.
#5. Ex-governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu
I am certain that with all that oil money, he can also afford a nice house in Dubia too.
#6. Former Minister of State for Works, Bashir Yuguda
It couldn’t get any worse for him as he’s now on trial in connection with the $2bn arms deal. He owns two houses in Abu Dhabi.
#7. Ex-Comptroller General of Customs, Abdullahi Dikko
The general was also linked with properties in Dubai. He has allegedly fled to USA, in the course of the corruption scandal spreeing around since it obviously won’t ogre well for his rank in the army to be arrested.
#8. Dr. Waripamowei Dudafa
He was the special assistant/aid to former president Goodluck Jonathan. Incredible!
#9. Ex-Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke
#10. Ex-NIMASA Director General, Patrick Akpobolokemi
He is currently on trial, find out more about it Here. Mr Akpobolokemi has properties in Dubai
#11. Spokesperson for PDP’s Campaign Organization, Femi Fani-Kayode
Get more about him Here.
#12 Former PDP Chairman, Adamu Muazu
He also own properties in Dubai and he’s allegedly on the run from the corruption scandalous trails.
#13 Senator Audu Idris Umar
He also own a property in Dubai where he’s allegedly hiding from the corruption scandal.
#14 A Former Minister of Niger Delta, Peter Godsday Orubebe (2010)
Godsday own a property in Dubai plus other Five Choice Properties owned by the ex-minister. I guess being a common Minister in Nigeria makes you a billionaire.
#15 Former Bauchi Governor Isa Yuguda
Isa has been linked to a property in Abu Dhabi and he’s also allegedly hiding in Dubai.
Everyone wants the national cake so who will blame them for wanting a chunk bite of it. Hopefully, the fight for corruption in Nigeria will soon become history.
