Kogi State Government has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of pursuing a political agenda regarding the controversial N20bn bail-out fund the state was accused of.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that the Kogi State Government says the EFCC’s is attempting to desperately wriggle out of a bad case with another, which is aimed at misleading Nigerians.
The State said this while quoting a letter signed by the Central Bank of Nigeria, which had not said anything different from what had been said so far on the controversial N20bn bail-out fund.
In reaction to the press release issued by the anti-graft agency, Kogi State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Kingsley Fanwo, said the Government would prepare a comprehensive response to the latest of the desperate moves by the Commission to save its face given its apparent goof and unethical conduct in the matter in dispute.
Fanwo said, “The press statement by the Commission is a malicious attempt to rope the state into a matter that ordinarily has nothing to do with our dear state.
“We maintain the unassailable truth that the Kogi State Government did not operate such account with the bank as affirmed in a letter by the bank. We sympathise with the EFCC as it has been a herculean task to cover the initial misinformation and deliberate deceit by the Commission.”
Fanwo while stressing that the Kogi State Government would react to the latest EFCC statement comprehensively, noted that “every option that is legal will be considered to maintain the innocence and transparency of our Government.”
He added that “Kogites and indeed, Nigerians should rest assured that we will get to the root of this matter.”
