The Federal Government says it has uncovered discrepancies of about N3.3tn and traceable to NNPC which was managed under Goodluck Jonathan. This was contained in the 2014 Annual Audit Report presented to the National Assembly on Monday by the office of the Auditor General of the Federation. Aside from this, another 4.4 billion being sales from LNG plant in Bonny was paid into secret accounts managed by Goodluck Jonathan.
The document also showed how N36.4 billion was released to the Office of the National Security Adviser, then under the headship of Col. Sambo Dasuki for the restoration and building of dams in substitute to the Federal Ministry of Water Resources. The report also stated that about 3 billion was used to purchase hand sanitizers just during the Ebola epidemic. The document also revealed how Chief Clerk of the National Assembly made payments of 9.5 billion without raising payment vouchers.
The report also revealed how the Nigerian Embassy in Washington DC generated about 3.8 million dollars (between 2012 and 2015) but expended the whole amount on unaccounted frivolities. The document showed how Nigerian Prisons Service deducted tax to the tune of 2 billion naira but remitted zero naira to the federal government.
The document also revealed how Jonathan doled out $1.6m meant to build a school by Nigeria following the earthquake of 2010. But the project is yet to be executed 6 years later. The document stated that, “As of the time of inspection, there was no evidence of a Memorandum of Understanding between Nigeria and the Haitian Government for the construction of the school. More so, the location of the school was not affected by earthquake in 2010. Therefore, the purpose for which the money was given could not be achieved.”
Last week, the president was visibly angry at the mismanagement and thievery of the Goodluck Jonathan government. He has directed the EFCC and other relevant agencies to prosecute all perpetrators without fear or favor.
