The Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing has been named as the public official from whom the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) recovered a whooping some of N1 billion. The Minister in Charge of the Ministry is Babatunde Fashola, who is currently the Federal Minister of Works and Housing and this man that stole N1 billion is the Permanent Secretary to Fashola.
In May this year, the EFCC Chairman Abdulrasheed Bawa told the Senate Committee on Finance that the agency had recovered almost N1 billion from a civil servant’s bank account.
According to the EFCC boss; “We have recovered over N1 billion sitting in the account of a civil servant last week. And the civil servant happens to be the Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing working under Babatunde Fashola.”
“It is good for us to observe things for now and wait for our commission to conclude its investigation, then we will take it up from there,” EFCC Chairman Abdulrasheed Bawa stated.
Unfortunately, Abdulrasheed Bawa, on the other hand, declined to name the specific civil servant that committed this atrocity. Well he has helped mentioning his occupation which is the Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing. So if you want to know his name you can Google Nigerian Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing.
According to a reliable source at the anti-graft agency who spoke to Sahara Reporters on Thursday, the public official is a Permanent Secretary who works with Fashola.
“The civil servant the EFCC chairman was talking about is the Permanent Secretary working directly with Fashola,” the source stated. So I wonder why the EFCC chairman has refused to state his name publicly. Could they be a conspiracy in Aso Rock.
