“We also need to engage the SGF on this; it is very big lacuna.”
The House of Representatives Committee on Public Accounts has summoned the management of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency ( NIMASA ) to appear before it on Feb. 25
The lawmaker warned the agency’s management that the house would be forced to apply appropriate sanctions according to the law adding that the invitation would be the last.“We also need to engage the SGF on this; it is very big lacuna. Mr Clerk, please put it that the committee is to interface with the SGF and the management of PENCOM on this matter but for now, all accounts be remitted to the Auditor-General without further delay.”
This followed the claim of Prof. Ukpabi-Joseph Ukpabi, Executive Director NRCRI, who assumed duty in 2018, that the board had yet to approve the audited reports of 2015 and 2016.“Agencies that have appeared, fix a day for the minister to appear with them and let people know what is happening to these agencies.
However, the Director-General of the council, Mrs Yewande Sadiku disagreed with the OAGF on the submission of its audited reports, stating evidence that all reports up to 2017 had been submitted but returned by the Auditor-General.Oke, however, directed that a status inquiry be done for the previous managers of the council that were before Sadiku, who assumed in 2016.
“We will dedicate a day for public hearing on this; full scale investigation. We must bring those people who are responsible.”However, Oke said the agency failed to properly plan in line with the Procurement Act.“We need to really engage your agency. Our laws are very clear. You have violated the Procurement Act, the Financial Management Control Act; your agency has raped the constitution. Status Inquiry ordered,” he said.
