GOVERNOR’S HIJACKING LG FUNDS WILL FACE TRIAL – PRESIDENCY

The Presidency yesterday said governors hijacking funds
meant for their local government would face trial
immediately after leaving office.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Niger Delta
Affairs, Senator Ita Enang, according to a statement by his
spokesman, Edet Etuk, gave the warning yesterday while
featuring on the Federal Radio Corporation Network Service
programme, “Issues of the Moment” .
Enang charged the Accountant-General of the Federation
and the Attorney-General of the Federation to monitor the
spending of allocation of funds to the states.
“Let the governors know that they would be made to stand
trial in accordance to the extant law when their immunity is
eventually lifted,” Enang said.
He said most of the local government secretariats had been
taken over by weeds; “while most of the primary healthcare
centre do not function.”
