Nigeria Reinvestment Czar Faces UN Fraud Allegations Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Jun 25, 2014, 03:53 AM

Scandals continue to swirl around President Jonathan Goodluck of Nigeria. He faces a global public relations crisis over numerous girls who had been kidnapped by Muslim militants, Boko Haram. As it turns out, Nigerian Gen. Martin Agwai was responsible for Nigerian troop deployments to fight Boko Haram earlier, but he is haunted by a shady past.

According to AllAfrica.com, "President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday appointed Gen. Martin Luther Agwai (rtd) as the substantive chairman of the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P). Gen. Martin Agwai (rtd.) was until now the Deputy Chairman and Acting Chairman of SURE-P."

Gen. Martin Agwai was formally a UN Sudan Darfur peacekeeper, who allegedly lived in multi-million dollar homes in New York City and Lagos, Nigeria. He allegedly raked in millions of dollars in bribe money, but now he's in charge of Nigeria's Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme. 

As reported by Fox News, "It was also revealed that an unlicensed MSD nurse, Ruth Agwai, the wife of Martin Agwai, the former head of U.N. Darfur peacekeepers, had been living in a multimillion-dollar town home in Manhattan. The combined salaries of the Agwais are not adequate for Mrs. Agwai to purchase the luxury condo, which has led to speculation that the couple may have received an income through other sources."

Gen. Martin Agwai was forced to resign from his duties at the United Nations and soon afterwards found employment with the Nigerian government.
