FULLLIST: See eight significant Buhari Ministers summoned by EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the country’s top anti-corruption body, has reportedly called eight former prominent ministers who served under previous President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to information provided by insiders, all eight of the former ministers were asked to testify in connection with charges of potential wrongdoing.

The invitation letters asked the former top government officials to attend and demonstrate how they used monies allotted to their ministries on specific projects while they were in charge of those ministries.

According to a Daily Trust report that Touchaheart News was monitoring, the letter was sent to the former ministers prior to Abdulrasheed Bawa’s suspension as chairman of the panel. The anti-graft organization had started an investigation.

Apart from Pauline Tallen, the former minister of women’s affairs, who was invited last week due to allegations of N2 billion in fraud and “part of the money allegedly diverted from the African First Lady Peace Mission Project,” the source claimed that roughly seven other people had also been invited.

Touchaheart News reports that Sale Mamman, a former minister of power under the previous president Buhari, was held and imprisoned by the commission last month in relation to an alleged N22 billion scam involving electricity installations.

Also, it was learned that the immediate past minister of police affairs, Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi, has also been summoned over how the Police Trust Fund was handled.

Speaking further on condition of anonymity, the source said Dingyadi would provide answers to allegations of purchasing refurbished vehicles for the Nigeria Police as new.

“Well, I’m not aware of the letter, I’ve not seen it. Maybe they sent it to the office, I will inquire from the office”, the minister of police affairs, Dingyadi, said in a phone conversation with the aforementioned platform.

The former Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, and the immediate past Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, were also invited by the anti-graft agency.
