I will not Refund that N100million because Dasuki did not give me money- Fale

The National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Olu Falae has vowed not to refund the N100 million he collected from Tony Anenih, former Chairman PDP Board of Trustees.
False said on Monday that the money was given to him on behalf of his party, to support the second term bid of former President, Goodluck Jonathan.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Abdul Ahmed Isaiq said in a press conference that Falae maintains that SDP would not return the money to
He insisted that the money was neither from Dasuki nor the Office of the National Security Adviser.
“In terms of refund of money, I want to say here that those people who are refunding money are those who got their money directly from the arms deal fund.
“Our fund did not come from the arms deal, our fund came from an electoral alliance with the PDP and we knew that the PDP had a fund raising committee that gathered billions of naira and PDP had been in government for 16 years.
” So, with that, we knew that the PDP had the capacity to fund the alliance that was formed with them by the SDP.
“You don’t postulate what you don’t have on the ground, you can’t build on a non foundation.
“We, as a political party knew that the PDP was a capable hand in the electoral alliance which we entered with them. And we equally knew that the PDP had a fund raising, where it generated over N20 billion down.
“So, whether the money came from Col. Sambo Dasuki or his office, is what we don’t know and it is left for them to ask Chief Tony Anenih to explain.
“We knew that the PDP had been ruling Nigeria for 16 years. So, this was the basis of our electoral alliance with them.
“We can’t refund any money to anybody because the money we got as a party came because of the alliance we had with the PDP and we have the agreement note from this alliance.
“If it is possible that the money Chief Anenih gave us was from the arms deal, it is left for them to ask Chief Anenih to clarify. As far as we knew, we did not have any dealing with Dasuki.
”Our office did not ever have anything to do with the office or person of the National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki,” the statement said.
