Aminu TambuwalSpeaker of the House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has berated the anti-corruption agencies in the country for failing to curb the rising cases of official sleaze and embezzlement of public funds.

The Speaker, who spoke at the inauguration of the Nigerian Association of Public Accounts Committees (NAPAC) in Abuja on Thursday, said despite the existence of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other relegated offenses Commission (ICPC), there are increasing cases of official corruption in the country.

Tambuwal, who was represented the House deputy minority whip, Rep. Garba Datti (APC, Kaduna) said “If our audit system is efficient and effective, agencies like the EFCC and ICPC would really have less work to do. Right now, these agencies are up to their necks with cases and yet stories of embezzlement of public funds keep coming”.

The Speaker, however, noted that he was aware of the limitations of the Auditor General’s office and stressed the need to strengthen the office for greater efficiency.

His words, “The 1958 audit Act has become obsolete making Nigeria one of the few African countries without an Audit law”.

Tambuwal assured that the House will give the new audit bill a speedy passage because it was long overdue.
