Nigeria's House Of Reps Queries NCDC Over N9bn COVID-19 Fund

The House of Representatives has queried the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) for allegedly depositing part of N9 billion COVID-19 intervention fund from the federal government into private accounts of some staff.









Chairman, House Committee on Public Accounts (PAC), Wole Oke, gave the query at the weekend, when the NCDC management appeared before the panel.

He noted that documents presented to the committee by the agency indicated that part of the intervention fund was lodged in the accounts of staff.

According to him, in 2020, N3.955 million meant for establishment of additional sample collection space and the sum of N792, 000 meant isolation centers were allegedly paid into private accounts.

The committee chairman, frowned at the practice, directed the agency to furnish the panel with relevant documents, detailing how the fund was expended.

However, the NCDC procurement officer, Dania Augustus explained that money was usually paid into the account of staff, who raised a memo for any expenditure. He explained that one of the staff in whose account, was a desk officer.

“That is to say he raised memos on issues and treats files and all that. What usually happens is that whoever raises a memo for an activity, when payment is to be made so that accounts can track record of payment, the initiator of that memo, his name is usually used,” he explained.

  9. If I read well, the government is asking why donated funds were paid into staff accounts and not the government's. They didnt query how the money was spent.
    We know that any money donated into government account is not easily accessible and has high chances to be embezzled.
    A responsible government should be more interested with if money were used for what it was donated for.
    I'm not in any way supporting NCDC. If it is against the policy to use staff accounts, then this should be corrected asap.
    All the monies recovered by EFCC and the Buhari's Administration, whose account is it in? How much is it? It's less than 2years for him to leave office, what's the plan.
