Ex-Perm Sec in the Power Ministry, Godknows Igali ‎has forfeited 47 brand new SUV cars to Federal govt; the cars were seized in his Utako residence

Former Permanent Secretary in the Power Ministry, Godknows Igali, ‎has forfeited 47 brand new SUV cars to Federal government.

According to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the cars were seized in Utako residence of the former Permanent Secretary in Abuja.

Igali is currently under investigation of anti-graft agency over corruption allegation.

Meanwhile, Senate kicked against donation of building and furniture to EFCC by unnamed state governor saying such donation could hamper war against corruption.

This is contained in a report submitted by EFCC to Senate Committee on Financial Crimes and Anti-corruption.

At the budget defence of the anti-graft agency, Senator Dino Melaye expressed dissatisfaction with a situation whereby governors are donating money to the EFCC.

He said such development would tamper with the independence of the anti-graft agency.

Also, Senate demanded for review of contract details of anti-graft agency building which is running into N26 billion against the initial N18.8 billion of the ‎contract awarded to Julius Berger.

The Senator wondered a contract awarded at N18.8 billion be later increased to N24 billion and later requested for additional N2 billion for the power plant and sewage.

He also said how could be a 10-storey building be without sewage and power plant from when the contract began.

Also, the chairman of the committee, Chukwuka Utazi said the signing of the contract was against the advice given by Bureau of Public Procurement.

The chairman said considering what is going with the EFCC building there is need for Julius Berger to appear before the committee and also the consultant that advised the EFCC to go against the advice of BPP on the contract.
