In an alleged tactical move to get back at former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, over his last week public comment that sparked national outrage, President Muhamamdu Buhari, through the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC, has on Tuesday, November 29, decided to reopen the controversial Halliburton Scandal case.
PACAC’s Executive Secretary, Professor Bolaji Owasanoye made this disclosure at a news conference in Lagos to unfold the panel’s plans.
Unconfirmed reports revealed that Obasanjo, who led Nigeria from 1999-2007, obtained considerable helpings of the infamous Haliburton bribe money.
The then Special Investigation Panel headed by former Inspector-General of Police, Mike Okiro, has declared in an interim report.
According to the document, which was submitted to former President Umaru Yar’Adua, Obasanjo shared the sum of $74 million between 2000 and 2001 with his Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, as well as Funsho Kupolokun and Gaius Obaseki, who were successive heads of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, during the government’s early years.
During that same time span, said the interim report, Obasanjo and the ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, also pocketed $5 million from the Halliburton slush funds.

Other alleged major beneficiaries include; General Sani Abacha, who got $40 million in 1994-95; Ibrahim Aliyu, $11.7 million in 2001-2002; former Minister, Dan Etete, $2.5 million in 1996-1998; Abdulkadir Abacha, $1.8 million in 1998; and M. G. Bakari, $3.1 million
While speaking, the PACAC Secretary said: “No government has the capacity to prosecute all manner of offences; that is the reason there is a legal framework for plea bargain.
He stressed the need to further build capacities of Ministries, departments and agencies as well as the Judiciary, on money laundering and asset recovery.
Owasanoye said PACAC would track high-profile cases and ensure improved application of sanctions.
“We intend to revisit some high-profile corruption cases, such as Halliburton, and see them to a logical conclusion,” he said.
He listed public apathy and elite complicity as some challenges PACAC had in the last one year.
According to him, poor economy, ineffective application of preventive measures and negative use of constitution can aid corruption.
The executive secretary called for improved collaboration of all arms of government in fighting corruption
