EFCC Denies Investigating Vice President Osinbajo...

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has declared that it is not investigating the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo and the National Social Investment Programme, N-SIP.

EFCC insisted that at no time did its spokesperson, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, made any reference to N-SIP as a programme or accused those who superintend it of corruption.

In a statement by its spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, the anti-graft agency cautioned against reports, which could project a false indictment and incite Osinbajo against its Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu.

The statement reads: “The attention of the EFCC has been drawn to a report captioned, “There is corruption in N-SIP programme- Magu”, which appeared in a newspaper on Wednesday September 25, 2019 and a few other newspapers, in which the acting Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Magu was quoted as saying that there is corruption in the National Social Investment Programme and the Anchor Borrower’s Programme.

“The papers claim that Magu, who spoke through the Spokesperson of the agency, Wilson Uwujaren at the 15th Anti- Corruption Situation Room organised by the Human and Environmental Development Agenda in Kaduna on Tuesday September 24, 2019, asked the civil society organizations “to investigate the N-SIP”.

“The commission wishes to disclaim the reports as false and a mischievous twist of the goodwill message presented by Mr. Uwujaren, on corruption and peace building in conflict communities.

“In the presentation, the EFCC spokesperson observed that the agency had received complaints in some zones regarding the social investment programmes, citing an example in Gombe where the Commission investigated a case in the Anchor Borrower’s Scheme in which sand was bagged and passed off as fertilizer.

“He, therefore, warned that for the crises in these conflict zones not to degenerate, civil society organisations should play more active roles in monitoring the programmes to ensure that their benefits get to the people for which they are intended.

“At no time in the presentation did Mr Uwujaren mention the N-SIP as a programme nor did he accuse those who superintend it of corruption. The specific case mentioned, the Anchor Borrower’s scheme, is not part of the N-SIP being supervised by the office of the Vice President.

“This clarification becomes necessary to correct the wrong impression of a verdict of corruption on N-SIP by the EFCC which the purveyors of the false reports obviously want to create.”

EFCC added: “All over the world, one of the core competencies of civil society organizations is project monitoring. Calling on Nigerian civil societies to monitor social intervention programmes, was not a call to ”investigation” as no one had been indicted. Investigation itself is not the job of civil society organisations.

“The EFCC chairman recognizes the unprecedented impact of of the N-SIP intervention in not only lifting the poor out of poverty but also its potential for reconciling feuding communities across the country.

“It is, therefore, shocking to read the unfounded insinuation of the reporters, aimed only at fanning the embers of disaffection that only exist in their imagination.

“The sensational attempt to project a false indictment, and incite the Vice President against the person of the Chairman of the EFCC, is therefore condemnable.”

  1. Stories. The VP self don't want to have shame small. Oga resign now the ovation is loudest but mba perks of office and people rushing to shake his hands or snap with him is what is worrying him.

    Too many insinuations about him.

    Anyway nothing concerns me at all

  2. The VP often look pitiable in my sight. I don't know if it's his nature or my eyes are deceiving me. Whatever it's, will surely come to light.

    1. It has already come to light. Vanguard has issued an apology to the VP about there yeye #9b lie

  3. "Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves." says the Lord.

  4. It is clear to the blind and audible to the deaf that there is a cheap internal conspiracy to tarnish this man’s image and force him out of office. I support his stance to fight it and clear his name. If he clears his name and decides to resign- it’s high time he dissociates himself from this sham of an administration if he wants to preserve his credibility.
    The said conspirators do not even know that if this man resigns, the foundation of the administration itself will be shaken.

  5. Will they admit it before? Well it is acting investigation since their chairman is still acting. lol

  6. 2 years ago I dropped a hint here about this issue with Fowler. Blogg visitors mocked me. When it first leaked finance department staff in CBN were even arrested by dss briefly. Their phones searched and bugged. The tori too much.

  7. My boy relax no shaking till 2023

  8. Why are they Wizard hunting VP now ?

  9. Karma. I can tell the allegations metted against him might be false, but this is what you get when you go into the devil's den relising you cant change them, you join them instead of taking a bow. If you are a spiritual person and stick to lies the likes of Tinubu around you then you are joking with your faith, you may be the best human ever but once the people around you aren't and you aren't strong enough to uphold your values, these things are bound to happen ask Jonathan, a good man with the worst cabal made him look like one of the most terrible leader at least we expected what we are currently facing with Buhari as a leopard never changes its spots and have to live with it.
