Centenary City Scam: PDP Chieftain Ask Buhari, EFCC To Probe Anyim

The National Vice Chairman of the Peoples Democratic (PDP) for South- South, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh has petitioned President Muhammadu Buhari demanding for a probe of the role of the immediate former Secretary of the Government of the Federation, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, in the multi-billion dollar Centenary City project.

He said he has also sent a copy of the petition to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for further action.

Ojougboh who said he had reasons to believe that the former SGF may have connived with the sponsors of the project covering over 1,500 hectares of land in the federal Capital City Abuja to perpetrate fraud.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja on Monday, the PDP stalwart lamented that the free trade zone status granted to the centenary city project is a colossal loss of revenue to the country.

According to the party scribe, the land whose size is equal to Maitama, Asokoro and Guzape districts put together did not meet the criteria of a free trade zone as is being ascribed.

He also accused Anyim of deceiving the Nigerian people that the centenary is a synergy between the federal government and the organized private sector.
