Muhammad Buba Marwa (retd.) and the National Security Adviser, Babagana Munguno to appear before the Public Accounts Committee of the Federal House in Abuja.

According to PUNCH, the Senate is currently scrutinising what has been issued against the NDLEA and the office of the National Security Adviser.

These queries have been issued by the Auditor General for the Federation.

PUNCH reveals that the NDLEA has 11 queries of various infractions which involve the sum of about N467m while the NSA was expected to address a case of alleged diversion of the sum of N3.5bn which was meant for the National Automotive Design and Development Council, to acquire vehicles for military officers.

Speaking, the Chairman, Senator Mathew Urhoghide expressed his anger over the alleged refusal of Brig. Gen. Muhammad Buba Marwa (retd.) and Babagana Munguno to appear before the Public Accounts Committee of the Senate.

According to PUNCH, Urhoghide said; Information Guide Nigeria

“We wrote to the NDLEA in 2018 to appear before us but they did not respond despite the fact that they acknowledge the letter.

“Another letter was written on February 1, 2021. Thereafter, they only sent written responses; they are supposed to appear physically, they acknowledge the letter and sent response on March 21.

“We wrote another letter to them on June 9th and scheduled the agency to appear before us on  June 30, NDLEA refused to appear. We wrote another letter to the NDLEA  for them to appear on September 29th and they also refused to appear.
