Accountability is core and key to any institutions and it’s working environment. If you don’t seek for accountability you don’t get it. The NFIU has requested for it,and as a law abiding institution we are already complying and its beneficial to all. – ‘Fatoki Kehinde
They ain’t serving us but there pockets. Not even president should have immunity.
Are you sure NFIU will not be shadow chasing?
How have they been paying local government salaries and pensions from the central in Lagos state?
Adah MichaelMost of the professional public servants has forgotten their ethics of their hard achieved career at the expense of political office holders by conspiring with them to deprive the masses by allowing the chairmen to loot or cover up crimes on behalf of the chairmen most part of the 774 LGs and their Lcdas. As promised NFIU must bark and bite heavily by arresting, prosecuting and jailing some of these senior staffs. Commonly among the head of administration, Council Treasurer , and Council Engineer respectively. Their jailing across the Nations will make them work professionally and stop the corruption at the Local levels irrespective of the political head of the council status.
Our Local Government chairman who valued his family name , Who feared NFIU/EFCC is religiously following the agency directives. Our books are opened for scrutiny anytime.
Abdulahi OlorunosebiWe commend NFIU And LG news for bringing such sensitization opportunity for local administration in Nigeria. However, NFIU, must save all the local government chairmen from some corrupt state governor’s who deduct their money for state projects they business with by prosecuting the violators.
