SHOCKER: How Ex Governor Withdrew N1b Raw Cash Public Fund In One Day For Personal Use
The spate at which corruption thrived under the previous administration unchecked is very alarming as a fresh report revealed that the immediate former Governor of Bauchi State, Alhaji Isah Yuguda, allegedly withdrew N1 billion raw cash for the state's coffer for personal use.

The revelation was made at a during a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday by the incumbent governor, Alhaji Muhammad Abubakar, has accused the administration of his predecessor, Alhaji Isah Yuguda, of withdrawing N1bn from one of the state’s accounts in a single day, Punch Newspaper reported this morning.

The Governor alleged that the N1bn was withdrawn from one of the state government’s accounts with multiple N10m cheques.

According to the governor, the N1bn was withdrawn by the officials of the former administration who made 100 withdrawals on the day in question.

The Bauch State government has constituted a panel to probe all contracts awarded by the previous administration, said while he had not been able to come up with the total amount allegedly looted by the previous administration, the ongoing probe would expose it.

He said, “I always feel shy of churning out figures I am not certain of. All I can say is definitely, there will be great revelations because the little I have seen, for example, I know of a situation in which in one day the sum of N1bn was taken out of one account of the government with N10m cheques.

“Several N10m cheques but I would not be able to put a figure on the total recovery because like I said, the work of the committee is ongoing.”

But the former governor has denied all these allegations.

One of his aides, who spoke to our correspondent on condition of anonymity because he had yet to get clearance from his boss to speak officially, described Abubakar’s assertions as part of a smear campaign.

He said, “This has become the strategy of the present administration, it wants to divert attention from its failings. Since it has set up a committee to probe, let them probe. We will advise them to avoid a witch-hunt.

“From what the governor has said, it is clear that a script has been prepared to ensure that the outcome of this probe indicts the Yuguda administration.”

But the incumbent governor said he would probe the immediate past administration because a lot of money that was paid into the coffers of the state could not be accounted for.

Abubakar stressed that there was nothing to show for the N2bn ecological funds which the Federal Government gave to all the PDP states during the last administration.

He lamented that the former administration which was in power for eight years did not do anything with the huge amount of resources that was received by the state during the period.

The governor also commented on the recent directive to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to prospect for oil in the state, explaining that he was at the NNPC to rekindle attention on the issue which had been abandoned for years.

According to him, the Shell Petroleum Development Company and Chevron Nigeria Limited struck oil in the state but left because it was not in commercial quantity.

He insisted that it was pertinent for more efforts to be made to make further discovery in accordance with standard practice.

He added that the multinational oil firms struck gas in OPL 809 which according to him was the fuel for the future.

In his comment on the crisis rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress, the governor said the party was having issues because it was new to being in government.

He said that the APC governors visited the President on the issue and it was agreed that committees of the party’s governors forum should be set up to look into the problems and resolve them in the interest of the party,

“The APC is a party that has come to power recently. And it has come to power from an opposition political party, and I must confess that we are experiencing teething problems in the APC because being in government is a new phenomenon for us.

“I cannot say that things  are going on smoothly, and that is why yesterday (on Tuesday) we paid a visit to Mr. President and we expressed the need  for governors to delve into the problem with a view to reinvigorating the party so that it can continue to perform the functions of the party in power,”  he said.

Governor, Ex-Gov Scampers, Run Pillar To Pole As EFCC Sets To Probe N432.5b Ecological Funds, See List Of States
Some dubious incumbent governors and former have reportedly scampered, rattled, jittery and are running from pillar to pole over fresh probe of  N432.5b Ecological Funds allegedly mismanaged by most of them. 

Many of the governors have inundated the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) with enquiries on  their fate, TheNation Newspaper says. It was learnt that they sought to know those to be probed and for which period.

It was learnt on Wednesday that the anti-graft agency had received some petitions against some state governors who diverted the funds.

A source at the agency said, “We will probe some states involved in the diversion of ecological funds but it will not be all the states and it will not be at the same time. It will be on a case-by-case basis.”

Besides the state governments, it will be recalled that the Ecological Fund Office was in 2014 directed by the Federal Executive Council to fund the procurement and nationwide distribution of over 750,000 clean cooking stoves and 18,000 wonder bags, at a cost of over N9.2bn.

The Senate Committee on Environment and Ecology raised the alarm that it could be a ploy to fund the 2015 elections by the Goodluck Jonathan government.

Two per cent of the monthly allocation from the Federation Account is allocated to the Ecological Fund Office.

Based on  an analysis of the table of distribution from FAAC obtained from the website of the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation, N107.79bn was allocated for ecology in 2014 and 2015.

According to the analysis, N46.89bn was allocated in 2014 while 2015 had an allocation of N60.9bn.

The Katsina State Governor, Alhaji Bello Masari, had in an interview with journalists in Abuja on Friday faulted the execution of N1.9bn drainage contract in the Katsina metropolis by the former administration in the state. The money was sourced from the Ecological Fund Office.

The contract was given at N1.99bn and the contractor collected 90 per cent of the payment. He has collected over N1.7bn.

“He said he had done the job with the best material. We got an independent person to do an assessment of the job. We said he should be as generous as possible but he valued the contractor’s maximum work at N700m.

“The contractor has abandoned the site. The money given to him was not covered by any bank guarantee or insurance guarantee. It was just given to him. We said, if you cannot complete the work as designed, this money was collected from the Ecological Fund account in Abuja, return it.

An audit   of the Ecological Fund between 2007 and 2011 by the House of Representatives early this year revealed that money was released to people outside the purpose of setting up the fund.

According to the audit report,   funds were allocated to 139 contractors for projects, out of which only 36 were completed and two stalled and N24.2bn  was paid to the contractors, with an outstanding of N16.5bn.

“But the actual fund transferred to the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation Ecological Fund Office account for execution of ecological projects from 2007 to 2011 was N56.9bn,” the report stated.

According to Punch Newspaper, Part of the AGF’s letter to the ICPC,  indicated that the cases against some of the former governors were investigated some years ago but charges were never filed against them.

The letter partly read, “It is clear that some of these governors and other politically-exposed persons have not been charged to court despite the fact that the ICPC has concluded their investigations, concerning allegations levelled against them, for one reason or the other.

“It is the position of the present administration that all ex-governors, who the ICPC had long concluded investigations into the various allegations levelled against them, should be immediately prosecuted.”

The letter also gave the Chairman of the ICPC a 14-day ultimatum to “remit the duplicate case files concerning the politically-exposed persons investigated by the ICPC over the years” to the office of the AGF.

Our correspondent confirmed on Wednesday that the AGF had sent a similar request to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission with the same list of former governors annexed to his letter.

The PUNCH had reported that some of the ex-governors, according to one of the sources, include some, who had been convicted for charges preferred against them by the EFCC.

Some of them also had their cases terminated before full blown trial could begin.

Others are currently undergoing trial on charges initiated against them by the EFCC at either the various divisions of the Federal High Court or the High Courts of their home states.

There are about five of the former governors, who are now said to be serving senators.

The affected personalities, it was learnt, served as governors for either one or two terms between 1999 and 2015, and are from all the six geopolitical zones of the country.

It was also confirmed that the majority of those on the list belonged to the two dominant political parties, the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party.

Another source also confirmed that a former Governor of Delta State, James Ibori, who was convicted in the United Kingdom for fraud-related charges and still serving his prison terms, was on the list.

Apart from Ibori, two former governors from the South-South, are said to be on the list.

Five of the former governors are from the South-East, and three from the South-West.

The PUNCH was informed that the ex-governors, whose cases would be reopened, included six from the North-West; six from the North-East, and eight from the North-Central.

The AGF letter defines high-profile cases as cases “involving alleged misconduct amounting to economic sabotage; involving complex financial transactions or property movement; involving any of the suspects, who is a politician, a public officer or judicial officer; and where the subject matter involves government or corruption of its official or involves the abuse of office.”

Such judiciary officers, it was learnt, would include judges allegedly involved in economic sabotage, including financial transactions.

The AGF’s letter to both the ICPC and EFCC indicated that AGF’s request for the case files was in the exercise of his powers vested in the AGF by Section 174(1) of the Constitution as well as sections 105 (3) and 106 (a) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.

Our correspondent’s findings showed on Wednesday that ICPC and EFCC had yet to respond to the AGF’s request.

Mr. Abdulmumin Jibrin, the embattled former chairman of the House Committee on Appropriation on Wednesday raised 20 questions for Speaker Yakubu Dogara bordering on the unfolding budget padding scandal.

Mr. Dogara must respond to the questions individually, Mr. Jibrin said in a fresh statement

The House was thrown into chaos following a decision the leadership took to remove Mr. Jibrin as Appropriation Committee chairman last week Wednesday.

Speaker Yakubu Dogara said Mr. Jibrin was removed because he allegedly betrayed the House and lacked competence in steering the committee.

Mr. Jibrin, however, said he stepped down willingly and denied the charges that he committed treachery and lacked competence.

The 20 questions are as follows:
1. Why did you take the decision to fraudulently shortchange the House by taken away 40 billion naira out of the 100 billion naira allocated for constituency projects and distributing same to yourself and others without the approval of the House?

2. Why did you approach the former house appropriation chairman with written personal requests and list of about 30 billion naira to be inserted into the 2016 budget and his inability to get that done caused a major rift between you all and him?

3. Why did you insert wasteful projects for your various constituencies worth about 20billion naira despite the former appropriation chairman professional advice against such?

4. Why did you ignore his complaint to you that just about 10 standing committees of the House inserted over 2000 projects worth 284 billion naira?

5. Why did you take away the appropriation committee secretariat on two occasions where several insertions were made into the budget which created avoidable tension during the budget process?

6. Why did you direct the former appropriation chair which he rejected to create a strange line item in the service wide vote to allow for a 20 billion naira insertion into the budget under the name of NASS using a former PDP Senator and top politician?

7. Why are you trying to scam members with a fraudulent arrangement to deduct monthly from money meant for members office running cost to fund a so called mortgage arrangement?

8. Why did you abuse your office in a conflict of interest directed an agency to grant loans and a construction company to work on your Asokoro plot and arrange frequent private meetings with heads of MDA’s?

9. Why did you allocate to yourselves the entire 20% inputs reserved for the House after the harmonization exercise?

10. How much did you collect for rent of house and guests houses and how much did Hon Herma Hembe steal from the money that caused the outburst of Lasun?

11. why are you trying to drag the entire House and illegally using the official spokesman of the House into allegations that were made on you and the 3 others ONLY?

12. Why did you consistently block the former chairman appropriation from briefing Hon members and denied him his right to be heard by his colleagues on this matter?

13. Why did you scuttle his effort and Sen Goje’s to assist Mr. President after working so hard consulting ministers on the budget out of envy and vindictiveness that Mr. President granted them audience without you?

14. Why did you insist and ensured that the immunity clause for the House principal officers is inserted into our agenda despite huge resistance from members and the general public?

15. Why did you connive with 5 other members of the House to use some elements of the Nigerian police and thugs in an attempt to blackmail, kidnap, intimidate and silence him and his family?

16. Why are you desperately going round media houses offering money to silent the statements of the former appropriation chairman?

17. Why has it taken you this long to put together such a lame storyt of why you “sacked” the former appropriation chairman after admitting on national TV that he resigned?

18. Is it true that you left a huge mess and allegations of money laundering against you as chairman House services both in the 6th and 7th House?

19. Why have you refused to open up the financial dealings and details of internal budget of the House to your colleagues, Hon members?

20. Why do you have problems with reconvening the House immediately to allow for an independent investigation on the allegations?
