Just yesterday, the Cross River State government announced that it has discovered 4 Billion Naira in several accounts in the State.
According to the announcement by the Commissioner of Finance on CRBC, “the State government discovered the money in separate banks during an exercise to streamline and checkmate government appointees excesses.”
The report further suggested that the money(4 Billion Naira) were monies hidden by senior appointees of the government. That is, the appointees embezzled the money and then kept it in the bank awaiting 9th December judgement.
Well, 9th December is confusing everyone in Cross Riverians, including appointees of the government.
But the truth is that I can swear for this appointees that none of them saw 4 Million Naira. Not to talk of 4 Billion Naira.
For me, the visit of the Senate Committee on Finance to come and validate the spending of the bailout funds is what is actually making the State Governor, Senator Ben Ayade confuse. And he instructed the Mumu Commissioner of Finance to lie.
I have said it before, that Cross River State is 6.2 Billion Naira short on its expenses. This is what the EFCC are squeezing Frank Ayade the co-governor for.
Anyway, e wolokomi?(Wetin concern me).
