Monitor N2.1bn Bailout To Ekiti – APC Tells Buhari, EFCC

fayoseThe All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has told President Muhammadu Buhari to instruct the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to monitor how the N2.1 billion bailout to Ekiti will be used by Governor Ayodele Fayose.

It also urged the Presidency to order the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Kenneth Minimah to remove the men of the Nigeria Army attached to the convoy of the governor to prevent misuse of security agencies.

“The President should ensure financial discipline in Ekiti State through the instrumentality of anti-corruption bodies to guard against the misappropriation of the bail-out funds that have already been seen as a jackpot by state government leaders,” it said.

In a statement by its Mr Taiwo Olatunbosun, APC’s state Publicity Secretary at the weekend said the obligation lies on the APC as the opposition party to call the attention of the Presidency to the alleged unwholesome attitude of the security agencies in the state.

The party commended Buhari over the bailout plan for states to settle the backlog of workers’ salaries, saying the measure would relieve Nigerian families from poverty and provide the energy needed for the challenge of returning the nation to the path of productivity for the general well-being of Nigerians.
