He made the declaration today in Abuja at a meeting with the Governors in the Presidential Villa and assured them that the days of impunity, lack of accountability, and fiscal recklessness in the management of national resources are over. He also
expressed surprise that the governors had tolerated the atrocities allegedly committed with the Excess Crude Account since 2011.
He promised to tackle the issue decisively. He declared that the payment of national revenue into any account other than the Federation Account was an abuse of the constitution. He said that what he had heard was going on in many agencies and corporations, particularly the NNPC, was clearly illegal. His statement: “There are financial and administrative instructions in every government parastatal and agency.
But all these were thrown to the dogs in the past. Honestly, our problems are great, but we will do our best to surmount them. The next 3 months may be hard, but billions of dollars can be recovered, and we will do our best.”…… every Nigerian will get at least a credit alert of N1m each if I succeed, he added…… Credit: @onye_guy
