Niger Gov, Gobir, Andy Uba, 107 Others Named In Panama Papers

At least 110 Nigerian individuals and companies have so far been named in the leaked Panama Papers for operating offshore shell companies in tax havens. Governor Abubakar Sadiq Bello of Niger State, Senators Andy Uba and Ibrahim Gobir have so far been identified. Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and his predecessor, Senator David Mark, among several other Nigerians had earlier been identified in the document.

 

The list also contained top business persons, politicians, and their family members, detailed names of companies, their owners and the particular tax havens the offshore firms are domiciled. The investigation revealed the assets of some of Nigeria’s most powerful individuals, including Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote; President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki; the boss of Oando, Nigeria’s biggest indigenous oil firm, Wale Tinubu, in tax havens such as the British Virgin Islands, Panama, and Seychelles.

 

Contacted for his reactions, Gobir, who is Senate Committee on Senate Services, was said to have travelled out to Saudi Arabia for lesser hajj. His Media Assistant, Bala Kassim, said Gobir left the country yesterday and could not be reached. Senator Andy Uba and Governor Bello also could not be reached for comments.
