The Bauchi State Government has disclosed that the past administration of Isa Yuguda squandered N91 billion security vote in eight years.

In a statement by the Special Assistant to Governor Mohammed Abubakar on Media and Communications, Yakubu Mohammed, the state said that more facts had emerged on security related expenditures by the former governor.

The statement said that between 2007 and 2015, the sum of N91 billion was released as security vote requirements with the highest spending of over N17 billion in 2013.

“For 2007, over N1 billion, over N6 billion in 2008, 2009 gulped over N8 billion. N10 billion was spent in 2010 while over N14 billion was released for the year 2011. Other releases of over N11 billion, N16 billion and N4 billion were for 2012, 2014, 2015 respectively,” it stated.

According to the statement, the facts were released and certified by the state’s Accountant General, Abubakar Gabi.

In the mean time, Governor Abubakar, has promised that his administration will block all financial leakages that were prevalent during the previous administration in the state.

“My administration took over a government that was wrecked because nothing was working in the state. I met a backlog of unpaid salaries, which I borrowed to pay workers. I decided to reduce my salary and expenses of the Government House by 50 percent to reduce financial wastage. There is no money to waste in my government, even a sheet of paper must be accounted for,” he said during a courtesy visit by the members of consultative council of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Bauchi State chapter at the Government House.
