In other news, Legit.ng reported that the Zamfara state government cried out over the whereabouts of the sum of N37 billion, a refund of the federal government for projects completed by the state.
According to Alhaji Rabiu Garba, the state commissioner of Finance, the state government has called for the help of security agencies to begin an investigation in the worrisome issue.
In his conversation with journalists on Tuesday, September 22, he accused Abdulaziz Yari’s administration of being responsible for the misappropriation of the said fund used for the construction of 14 federal roads in the state.
“We understood that the cost of the verified projects at the Federal Ministry of Works stood at over N37 billion.
“But when we asked for refunds of the said amount, it was confirmed by both the Federal Ministry of Works and the Debt Management Office that the amount had been paid fully.
“On further investigation, we gathered that the money was collected by the Director-General of Nigerian Governors’ Forum and one lady who also worked in the same place on instructions from former Zamfara government."
