THE Senate Public Accounts Committee, on Thursday, queried the Ministry of Environment over 55 vehicles allegedly missing from its coffers.
The Chairman of the Committee, Senator Mathew Urhoghide, relied on the 2018 Auditor General’s report to take the decision.
The Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Abel Olumuyiwa, however, failed to defend the allegation.
Also, his efforts to present some vehicles as part of the alleged missing vehicles were rejected because the vehicles had no chassis number.
The committee, therefore, sustained the query of the Auditor General against the Ministry of Environment.
