Single Post – Home

The House of Representatives has given a 72-hour ultimatum to the Accountant General of the Federation, OLUWATOYIN MADEIN, demanding a comprehensive report on the utilisation of 100 billion naira COVID-19 intervention funds.

The fund was allocated by President MUHAMMADU BUHARI’s administration to Ministries, Departments, and Agencies between 2020 and 2022.

The Chairman of the House Committee on Public Accounts, BAMIDELE SALAM, who issued this ultimatum in Abuja on Wednesday, expressed disappointment with the AGF’s failure to comply with the committee’s resolution to submit the report by October 27, 2023.

The House had mandated the committee to investigate the expenditure related to COVID-19 interventions, particularly in the years 2020 to 2022.

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives says it will investigate the 200 billion naira expended on the postponed 2023 census by the National Population Commission, NPC.

The resolution to investigate the NPC’s expenditure was a sequel to a unanimous adoption of a motion co-sponsored by DOMINIC OKAFOR and PATRICK UMOH at plenary on Wednesday.

The lawmakers charged the NPC not to relent in its preparation for the 2023 population and housing census.

In his ruling, the Speaker of the House, TAJUDEEN ABBAS, mandated the Committee on Population to investigate the money expended on the postponed 2023 population.

He asked the committee to liaise with the NPC to ensure a successful population and housing census when proclaimed.
