Honorable Johnson Agbonayinma, a Federal Commissioner of the Code of Conduct Bureau, has disclosed how an examination of Sadiya Umar Farouq, a former minister of humanitarian affairs, uncovered financial misappropriation meant for Nigerians. He complimented the Code of Conduct Bureau for its good job and the crew for their hard work in conducting exhaustive investigations. He did, however, voice his dissatisfaction with what seemed to be a lack of action on their final report, highlighting the necessity of fortifying and enhancing the Code of Conduct Bureau in order to effectively battle corruption. He emphasized the bureau’s ability to hold public officials responsible, saying that nobody should be free from investigation—not even the president. He ascribed the perceived obstacles to the bureau’s efficacy to a cohort of people obstructing the country’s advancement. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
He said in an interview with TVC, ”We investigated the former Humanitarian minister, money meant for Nigerians wasn’t disbursed. The Code of Conduct Bureau did a wonderful job, our team did an excellent job. Going from everywhere to investigate. Our final report was annexed, when you go back to it, you will cry for this Nation. But what happened? That report died.
If we want this country to move on with this fight against corruption, the Code of Conduct Bureau must be strengthened. It must be empowered because we have the capacity to fight corruption. Nobody is above the law when it comes to the code of conduct bureau. We can take on anyone as a public officer even up to Mr. President. But what you need to understand is that there are some people that try to derail the will of progress for this country moving forward. It didn’t start today, it didn’t start yesterday. For code of conduct not being able to move, it is because some cabal doesn’t want us to work.” CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
