The Presidency warns Nigerian Governors that are fond of high jacking funds meant for the Local Governments in their respective states and promised to deal with them at the end of their tenure.
According to a report by Daily Trust, the presidency issued the warning on Wednesday, January 15, stating that by the time these corrupt Governors end their tenure, their immunity would have ended.
The warning was issued by Ita Enang, senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Niger Delta Affairs, who urged the accountant-general of the federation as well as the attorney-general of the federation to ensure strict monitoring of how funds allocated to the states are spent
Enang’s spokesperson, Edet Ekpenyong Etuk, released a statement quoting his principal as saying: â€œLet the governors know that they would be made to stand trial in accordance with the extant law when their immunity is eventually lifted.”
He asserted that many local government headquarters have been taken over by weeds with healthcare systems at the grassroots not functioning with workers refusing to do their beats yet receiving salaries.
