SENATE PROBES ALLEGED FUND DIVERSION FOR PRESIDENT BUHARI’S RE-ELECTION

The Senate has ordered an investigation into an alleged use of the Federal Government’s special intervention project funds for President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election.

In a motion yesterday, Senate Minority Leader Biodun Olujimi claimed that the funds had become “politicised” as beneficiaries were being asked to write their names, gender and details of permanent voter cards (PVCs).

Senate Leader Ahmed Lawan, however, described the allegation as unfounded.

The Senate adopted the prayer that the probe should be apolitical and also called for an investigation into the Sure-P programme.
