A former Minister of State for Finance, Bashir Yuguda, has explained his role in the distribution of the N450m allocated to Zamfara State out of the $115m deposited in the Fidelity Bank Plc. by former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, during the 2015 general elections.

Yuguda, who served as a minister under former President Goodluck Jonathan has since been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Yuguda, in his statement, on Wednesday reportedly admitted to have collected N450 million in his capacity as a chieftain of the PDP, in his state.


The former minister admitted that he also supervised the sharing of the money in his home state.

According to him, a former Secretary to the Zamfara State Government and member of PDP Presidential Campaign Committee 2015, Aminu Ahmed Nahuche, collected the sum of N450m allocated to Zamfara State from Fidelity Bank Plc.

He is currently facing interrogations at the anti-graft headquarters.
