With N700,000 salary monthly as a Permanent Secretary, the ex-First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan would have to explain how she allegedly acquired nine houses, two hotels and one plaza during the tenure of her husband, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan
The anti-graft commission has retrieved her monthly salary records and other allowances accruable to a Permanent Secretary in Bayelsa State.
But the pay package, EFCC sources revealed, does not seem to tally with the properties credited to the ex-First Lady.
Although she allegedly claimed that the $15million in her accounts was a gift, the EFCC might demand records of those who showered her with the cash gift.
It was unclear as at press time whether or not the EFCC will seize the affected properties in line with Assets Forfeiture Clause in its 2004 Establishment Act.
Preliminary investigation had linked the following assets to the former First Lady: Port Harcourt —— Former Customs Service officers mess; two duplexes at 2/3 Bauchi Street; landed property with blocks at Ambowei Street; 3 Luxury apartments of 4-bedroom each at Ambowei Street; and Grand View Hotel along airport road.
Others in Yenagoa are two marble duplexes at Otioko GRA by Isaac Boro Expressway; Glass House along Sani Abacha Expressway which is housing Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board; Akemfa Etie Plaza by AP filling Station, Melford Okilo Road; and Aridolf Resort, Wellness and Spa along Sani Abacha Expressway.
