Jackson Ude, aide to former President Goodluck and Publisher of PointblankNews has alleged that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the Auditor General of the Federation, Mr. Anthony Mkpe Ayine drew whopping N10billion from the Treasury Single Account (TSA) in 2016.
Some Documents he shared online indicates that in 2016, the duo authorized two withdrawals of N5 billion each from the TSA, totaling N10 billion.
On Twitter, He wrote: “In 2016, VP Osinbajo connived with the Auditor General, Anthony Mkpe Ayine and illegally took N10billion belonging to the NHIS from the TSA account. When the Presidential Investigation Panel began probe, they were intimidated and thereafter sacked. And the money gone till date”
“Instead of the Auditor General to answer query over the missing funds, he ran to Osinabjo who ensured that the Special Investigation Panel were queried for daring you ask questions. Osinbajo used his office to block the probe of the illegally taken funds from the TSA account.”
“the funds which belong to the National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS, was withdrawn without the consent and knowledge of the Executive Secretary and the management of the NHIS.
“Sources hinted that in 2016, one Lagos-based Lawyer had petitioned the Special Presidential Investigation Panel, SPIP, set up by President Buhari, raising alarm over the alleged illegal withdrawal.
Acting on the petition, the panel in 2018, wrote to the Auditor General seeking clarifications on the legality of the withdrawal of N10 billion from the TSA belonging to the NHIS.”
“In the letter dated 13 February 2018, and signed by its Chairman, Okoi Obono Obla, SPIP gave the Auditor General a seven-day ultimatum to confirm in writing the veracity or otherwise of the illegal withdrawal of the N10 billion from the TSA.”
“In the letter, the panel also directed the Auditor General and the 16 Directors in his office to immediately fill out assets declaration forms and submit within 30days.
“However, instead of responding to the query, the Auditor General wrote Vice President Osinbajo, challenging the powers of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel to investigate matters relating to funds.”
“In a Letter Dated 21st February 2018, and with reference number OAuGF/GEN.CORR/AuFG/IV/14, the Auditor General sought to know from the Vice President if the SPIP had the mandate of the NHIS whose funds were withdrawn from the TSA, to investigate the withdrawal.”
“According to a source privy to the drama, “till date, no one has details of where the N10 billion went. Only Osinbajo and the Auditor General Ayine know where the money is.”
