The Minister of Works and Housing, BABATUNDE FASHOLA, has declared that no money was missing or stolen under his watch between September and December 2019.
FASHOLA denied reports that he supervised the illegal payment of 4.6 billion naira into private accounts when he served as Minister of Power, Works and Housing.
Recall that some reports had claimed that Fashola’s ministry paid over 4.6billion naira into personal accounts of directors and staff in four months, stressing that this was in clear violation of the existing law.
In a document circulated to newsmen, the minister explained that all payments were carried out in line with the Federal Government’s payment platform called the Integrated Personnel Payment and Information System.
