A member of the House of Representatives, Taiwo Oluga, has asked Nigerian youths to focus on the Office of the Accountant General and other agencies for the state of the country.
Oluga said most times Nigerians “shout politicians” but attention should be on MDAs.
The lawmakers stated these on Tuesday as the OAGF once again presented an inaccurate account during a public hearing on Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) organized by the Committee on Finance.
It would be recalled that the OAGF was queried on Monday for presenting an inaccurate report.
Today, when the Nigerian Energy Commission appeared before the committee, the agency claimed to have remitted N13 million, however, representatives of OAGF stated that the commission remitted N27 million.
Also, same thing was recorded when the National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency appeared before the committee and claimed to have remitted N1.9 billion, again OAGF said the agency remitted N2 million.
The discrepancies prompted a rebuke from some lawmakers, who berated the agencies for doing a poor job at record keeping.
Reacting to the discrepancies, Oluga said Nigerian youths should know that the agencies are the problem and should next EndSARS happen, MDAs should be the focus not politicians.
“All the agencies, especially the office of the Accountant general, are our problem in this country.
“Because Nigerians will be shouting ‘politicians’ Look at what my colleague has just read out. it is good we let Nigerians know. Various agencies, especially the office of the accountant general, are our problem.
“The youth must know, so that next time there is endsars, the youths must face them,” she said.
