1 min read

The President’s office has emphasized that President Bola Tinubu is committed to holding accountable any of his appointees implicated in the ongoing investigation of the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.

Tinubu’s Media and Publicity Special Adviser, Ajuri Ngelale, emphasized that there should be no exceptions in the ongoing investigation.

Last Monday, Tinubu suspended Minister Betta Edu from the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, citing allegations of authorizing a payment exceeding N585.2 million to a private account.

A leaked memo indicated that she approved the payment of N585 million into the private account of a civil servant.


Ngelale while appearing on TVC’s Politics on Sunday, said: “The President has given full instruction to the EFCC chairman (Ola Olukoyede) to not only conduct a thorough investigation.


“The way the President would direct such an investigation is to say that nobody, no name, should be left out if they are found wanting in the situation. No sacred cows at all.

“Anywhere this investigation takes the EFCC and other investigating authorities, that is where the investigation must go and the President will take action accordingly.”
