The minority caucus in the House of Representatives has called on the economic and financial crimes commission to immediately investigate the managing director of the Nigerian ports authority, Hadiza Bala-Usman, over alleged looting of revenue under her management.
The caucus, in a statement issued today by the minority leader of the house, Ndudi Elumelu, said the all progressives congress administration had crippled the nation’s economy and brought untold hardships to Nigerians.
The opposition lawmakers, therefore, demanded a more drastic step by anti-graft agencies to recover the stolen funds as well as prosecute all involved in the looting spree.
Elumelu further said the minority caucus in the house of representatives is alarmed by the alleged looting of over 165billion naira operating surplus as well as other diverted funds running into billions of naira, by top officials of the Nigerian port authority.
