Kwara State Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has appointed an agency to investigate the sale of Kwara State assets under Governors Muhammad Lawal, Bukola Saraki and Abdulfatah Ahmed.
The governor also appointed a committee to investigate allegations of embezzlement of N300 million from local government funds under his administration.
While the commission was given a two-month deadline to report, the commission of inquiry on local finances was given two weeks to present its findings.
Inaugurating the commissions, the governor said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had already started an investigation into the local governments’ allocation and disbursements, following an invitation from them.
In a statement issued by the governor’s chief press secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, the governor said since July 14 he had asked the EFCC to look into the distribution of funds to 16 local government areas, as well as the revenue received to ensure that no money was wasted.
