After receiving N250 million, Dr. Donald Wokoma, a Special Assistant to the Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, allegedly failed to execute some contracts awarded to his firms in 2018.

The Economic Confidential gathered that Mr Wokoma was a signatory to the bank accounts of the companies when he was Special Assistant to the Vice President on the National Economic Council, NEC.

A seasoned investigator at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) exposed the deal while testifying before the Justice Isa Ayo Salami Presidential Investigative Panel on Thursday.

The Justice Ayo Salami panel is a Presidential Investigative Committee examining activities of EFCC under the stewardship of suspended Acting Chairman of the agency Ibrahim Magu between 2015 and 2020.

The anti-corruption operative, whose name is withheld for security reason, alleged that several contracts were awarded without execution and payments were made to companies under the Presidential Amnesty Programme.

The officer said the case was assigned to Special Investigation Team sitting in the Office of the National Security Adviser, ONSA, after an intelligence report was received on the ‘fraud’ which was one of the fraudulent activities at the Office of the Presidential Amnesty Programme in 2018.

But upon investigation, it was revealed that Damijay Integrated Services was awarded a contract worth about N98million, and a similar contract was awarded to another company named Eagle Technology Ltd, at the same amount of N98m.

“It was further revealed that after the payment, Eagle Tech transferred the money paid to it to Damijay. The total sum of N250m was then transferred from Damijay to Elixir Investments Partners as Investment.

“In the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Donald Wokoma, an SA to the Vice President, was the sole signatory to the account of Damijay and he, his wife and son were the shareholders of the company,” the operative disclosed.
