“lt gladdens the heart to note that some of the commission’s officials are already refunding part of their loot to government’s coffer.

“The Presidency also preemptively disowned the commission’s management over the latter’s impunity in extra-budgetary spending yet ongoing.

However, decisive steps must be taken urgently to end the audacious and unprecedented looting under a government that professes to be fighting corruption. After all, we all bear the consequences of the despicable actions of officials in government,” he stated. NDDC
