Buhari accuses governors of stealing local govt funds

President Muhammadu Buhari has claimed that governors misappropriate funding from local government councils.

The President emphasized the importance of personal integrity in the functioning of government during his remarks following his speech at the presidential parley for the Senior Executive Course 44 (2022) of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) at the State House in Abuja, on Thursday.

He recalled a situation where a state governor would accept funding on behalf of his state’s council regions, but would then send half of that funding to the council chairmen.
