In the wake of the scandal involving the Minister of
Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu, an activist, Deji
Adeyanju on Saturday insisted that the National Nigerian Petroleum Company
Limited, NNPCL, also transfer money into private accounts.
Speaking on Arise TV, Adeyanju alleged that billions of
dollars are transferred into private accounts without anybody monitoring.
He urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,
to probe all ministries and not Edu alone.
According to Adeyanju: “I would not be in a hurry to praise
the president over Betta Edu’s suspension. She is just one among the ministers.
There is nothing that Edu is doing that other ministers are not doing.
“Even NNPC and CBN are transferring money into private
accounts. NNPC can transfer billion of dollars into private account without
“I can provide audited and evidence accounts of payment into
private accounts. Even these people who just took over from Emefiele are
transferring into private accounts.
“If EFCC wants to fight corruption, they should not just
pick up an individual but it should cut across the board, I have evidence to
prove this claim.”
The leaked memo indicted Edu of
approving the payment of N585 million social intervention funds into the
private account of a civil servant.
Following the disclosure, President Bola Tinubu suspended
Edu while ordering the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to
thoroughly investigate the scandal.
