President Buhari Begins Total Probe Of Jonathan's Government


A total probe of the administration run by
immediate past, Dr Goodluck Ebele
Jonathan is underway as the National
Economic Council , NEC, Ad-hoc Committee on
the Management of Excess Crude Account
Proceeds and Accruals into the Federation
Account , headed by the Governor of Edo State,
Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, is to hire two
international forensic audit firms to probe
revenue that accrued into the Federation
Account and how it was spent under former Dr
Goodluck Jonathan as President.
Mr. Oshiomhole told journalists at the end of
the first meeting of the committee in Abuja,
yesterday that the auditors would cover the
period January 1, 2010 to June 1, 2015.
It put paid to calls by the opposition Peoples’
Democratic Party, PDP, that Buhari should
extend his probe to the administrations of
Jonathan’s predecessors, Alh. Umaru Yar’
Adua.and Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.
Already, some revenue generating agencies
have been invited to brief the committee which
will take detailed briefings from all Ministries,
Departments and Agencies, MDAs of the
Federal Government that deal directly with
revenue.
The focus will be on the Nigerian National
Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, the Nigeria
Customs Service , the Central bank of Nigeria,
the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency
Initiative, NEITI, among others.
Other members of the committee included
Gov. Nasir Ahmed El-Rufai of Kaduna State,
Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe, and Udom
Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom.
He said that the committee did not want its
actions to be bogged down by political
interpretations and that the members were not
professionals. Even if they were professionals,
he said that their duties as governors would
not allow them the time to do a thorough
work.
His words, “We held our first primary session
today here with some of the revenue generating
agencies that are supposed to remit funds to
the federation account . We had a successful
session with Customs, NPA, NEITI, SEC, FIRS,
and quite a number of others and next week
we will also hear from CBN, Ministry of
Finance, Office of the Accountant-General of
the Federation.
