Oct 10, 2011 – Danjuma Goje Returns From UK, Set To Report To EFCC Today
The Former Gombe State Governor Danjuma Goje yesterday returned home from the United Kingdom (UK).
Goje, who vowed to defend the allegations of corruption levelled against him, said there is no justification for EFCC to declare him wanted.
In a statement by his aide, Mallam Yahaya Mohammed, Goje said he would appear before the EFCC today.
The statement reads: “There was no need by the EFCC to have declared me wanted. I was out of the country when I learnt that the EFCC had declared me wanted; there was no justification for its action. As former governor who served this nation for eight years and currently a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I am ever ready to defend my action at all time.
“‘The allegation of corruption against me cannot stand. All financial resources entrusted in my care as governor of Gombe State were judiciously used. The records are there for everybody to access.
“It is illogical for any body to have accused me of diverting N52 billion when you look at all the outstanding projects I executed in eight years.
“This is the price you pay for leadership in a country like our nation where all public officials are seen as corrupt people. I have no regret serving this nation.
“I will appear before the EFCC on Monday. I am ready to answer all questions about the purported corrupt practices.” (The nation)
