Icpc Discovers School Feeding N267 Billion In Private Accounts

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) said it had discovered N2.67 billion of funds meant for feeding in some schools, stashed away in some private bank accounts.

The anti-corruption agency disclosed this on Monday during its 2nd National Summit on Diminishing Corruption and launch of the National Ethics and Integrity Policy at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Chairman of the ICPC, Professor Bolaji Owasanoye, explained the money was meant for some Federal Colleges during the COVID-19 lockdown.

He said further the Commission also discovered over N2.5 billion appropriated by a deceased senior civil servant in Ministry of Agriculture for himself and cronies, listing other assets recovered in the Ministry Agriculture to include 18 buildings, 12 business premises and 25 plots of land.

 

He said under Open Treasury Portal review carried out between January to August 15, 2020, out of 268 Ministries, Departments and Agendas (MDAs) 72 of them had cumulative infractions of N90 million. He said while 33 MDAs tendered explanations that N4.1 billion was transferred to sub-TSA, N4.2 billion paid to individuals had no satisfactory explanations.

According to Owasanoye:

“We observed transfers to sub-TSA were to prevent disbursement from being monitored. Nevertheless, we discovered payments to some federal colleges for school feeding in the sum of N2.67 billion during lockdown when the children are not in school, and some of the money ended up in personal accounts. We have commenced investigations into these finding.”

The ICPC chairman also said under its 2020 constituency and executive projects tracking initiative, 722 projects with a threshold of N100 million (490 ZiP and 232 executive) were tracked across 16 states.

The ICPC chairman said in education sector, 78 MDAs were reviewed and common cases of misuse of funds were uncovered.
