Alleged N33bn fraud: Reps set to question VP Osinbajo

The House of Representatives Committee on Emergency and Disaster Preparedness, whose report last week allegedly indicted Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has said the VP has questions to answer in the probe into an alleged N33bn fraud.

The fund which is said to be for a presidential intervention in the North-East crisis has been a key subject of discussion following a report released by the committee.

The committee had indicted Osinbajo over “emergency intervention of food security to the North-East” in June 2017, when he was Acting President.

But the Vice-President denied the allegation, stating that due processes were followed.

Chairman of the ad hoc committee of the House, Mr Ali Isa (APC, Gombe State), who addressed journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, however, insisted that Osinbajo, being the chairman of the presidential programme and the one who issued directives leading to the release of funds, “has questions to answer.
