A Bayelsa group, which name itself, Izon Ibe Youth Assembly, said documents linking President Goodluck Jonathan and former petroleum minister, Diezani Allison-Madueke, to the $6.9 million mobile stage contract scandal, was released by his former aide, Waripamowei Dudafa. Dudafa was Jonathan’s special assistant on domestic affairs. Accusations against Dudafa appeared to have shot up recently due to his opposition to Bayelsa state Governor, Seriake Dickson, who is seeking a second term.
In the group’s statement, on Sunday, Dudafa was accused of “fraternizing with the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari by releasing sensitive documents to the government”.
Jones Opugu, who claims to speak for the group, called Dudafa “a traitor and a disgrace to the Ijaw nation.” He said Dudafa’s motif is to” be in the good book of the new administration and possibly avoid invitation by the Department of State Services (DSS) to account for his actions while in government”.
“It is regrettable that in this season of betrayal of our own son and former President Goodluck Jonathan, a very close aide like Waripamowei Dudafa could be an associated traitor.
“As now a public knowledge, he is afraid of all the atrocities he committed as a privileged aide by fraudulently collecting huge sums of money from unsuspecting visitors to the Presidential Villa, who were desperate to see the former president but failed to deliver”.
