A well-known writer and lecturer from Nigeria, Farooq Kperogi, has requested that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu fire Betta Edu, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, due to a purported N585,198,500.00 million corruption scandal.

For authorizing the transfer of N585,198 million into Bridget Mojisola Oniyelu’s personal account, Edu is facing criticism.

However, in response to the event, Kperogi claimed in a piece published on Saturday via his X handle that the President would not have had the morality to combat corruption if Tinubu had not fired Edu right away.

“Unfortunately, some of the crimes that the people under Muhammadu Buhari’s eight-year rule committed are happening again. For instance, it has recently been shown that Sadiya Umar Farouq’s successor, Betta Chimaobim Edu, initiated the same pattern of thievery as her predecessor.

“Edu directed that funds intended for “vulnerable groups in Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Ogun, and Lagos,” totaling more than N500 million, be deposited into the private UBA account of one Bridget Mojisola Oniyelu in violation of Nigeria’s public sector financial regulation law. This instruction was contained in a memo that was leaked to the Accountant-General of the Federation on December 20, 2023.

Section 713 of the legislation states that “any officer who pays public money into a private bank account is deemed to have done so with fraudulent intentions.” The regulation states that public funds should never, under any circumstances, be paid into private bank accounts.

“Tinubu is going through a historic time. He declared, “He has already lost the moral high ground to try Muhammadu Buhari’s corrupt honchos if he does not fire Edu immediately and bring her to justice.”
