The United States has said the Economic
and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,
has all it needs to prosecute all those
implicated in the Halliburton scandal
including Mrs. Aisha M. Buhari who
allegedly wired $170,000.00 in bribe to disgraced Congressman Williams J.
Jefferson in 2002.

A 16-count indictment, returned by a federal
grand jury in Alexandria, Va., charged Jefferson
with solicitation of bribes from Nigeria and other
places, honest services wire fraud, money
laundering, obstruction of justice, violating the
Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, racketeering, and conspiracy.

The indictment alleges that from in or about
August 2000 through in or about August 2005,
Jefferson, while serving as an elected member of
the U.S. House of Representatives, used his position
and his office to corruptly seek, solicit and direct
that things of value be paid to Jefferson and his family members in exchange for his performance
of official acts to advance the interests of people
and businesses who offered him the bribes.

The U.S Justice Department had at the time
requested the EFCC through a letter with Ref:
MEW:DPW:KDL:AV 1 File 182.23818 dated June 22,
2006 to investigate Mrs. Aisha M. Buhari and
several others linked with bribing Congressman
Jefferson.

Atiku, chairing of the Petroleum Technology
Development Fund, PTDF, then, was, alongside US
Congressman Williams J. Jefferson, Siemens,
Halliburton, and others, indicted in a U.S. Senate
report sent to the EFCC for investigation in 2006.

Peter Carr, Spokesman of the DOJ confirmed the
Sentencing memo of Jefferson which indicted
Aisha M. Buhari, Abubakar Atiku and others but
declined to speak further on the issue.

“Thank you for reaching out to us. We’ll decline to
comment beyond what is referenced in the
comments sentencing memorandum,” Carr said.

A source in DOJ disclosed that because Jefferson is
currently appealing some of his convictions, DOJ
may not want to comment further on the matter.

The Sentencing Memorandum obtained from the
U.S District Court Eastern District of Virginia listed as
exhibit, a wire transfer to Congressman Jefferson
from an account owned by Aisha M. Buhari.
“…See also Government Exhibits 36-87 (6/26/02
$170,000 wire transfer from account in Nigeria in the name of Aisha Buhari to an account in the
name of The ANJ Group, LLC, identifying “William
Jefferson” as Beneficiary), Government Exhibits
36-90
and 36-91 (11/28/03 $50,000 wire transfer from
account in British Virgin Islands in the name of Dawson Creek Traders to an account in the name
of Jefferson Interests, Inc.),” the 37page
sentencing memo said on its page 22.

Curiously, since President Mohammadu Buhari was
elected President, the first lady has never followed
him to his numerous U.S trips. At the United Nations
General Assembly in 2015, she rather sent the wife
of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to represent
her at the First Lady’s Conference of UNGA. Sources disclosed that even though Jefferson is
currently serving Jail time, those linked to his crime
are still being sort after for questioning.

The source confirmed that while Mr. Kachikwu
offered to testify against Jefferson, Mrs. Buhari was
nowhere to be found during the FBI probe of the
matter, reason why she has stayed away from the
U.S.

The U.S Senate report, FBI reports and U.S Court
papers on the allegations have remained in the
coolers of the EFCC as the agency appears to be
lacking the political will to carrying on the
prosecution.

U.S Investigators had in 2006 asked the EFCC to
investigate Bank records of accounts held by
Hajiya Aisha M. Buhari from January, 2001, to
present, including, but not limited to, accounts at
Citizen International Bank, Plot 130, Ahmadu Bello
Way, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria. The bank records should include documents relating to any
wire transfers of $10,000 or more.

Although the Presidency through a text message
by Mallam Garba Shehu said the Aisha M. Buhari is
not the same as the President’s wife. U.S
investigators said investigations by EFCC would
identify the real Aisha M. Buhari named in the
documents.

Shehu had also threatened to sue any media
house should they  publish any  reports linking the
first lady to the Halliburton/iGate scandal.

The FBI had also asked the EFCC to investigate:
