Trouble looms for minister-designate, Senator Godswill Akpabio as the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) drags him to court.
SERAP petitioned Bolaji Owasanoye, Chairman Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and Ibrahim Magu, Acting Chairman, Economic, and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Godswill Akpabio and Isa Misau over alleged diversion of constituency projects.
The Senate recently screened Akpabio after his nomination as minister by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The organization said:
“If the ICPC and EFCC consider the recovered hospital equipment and six tractors allegedly diverted for the personal use of the senators as relevant and sufficient admissible evidence, we urge you to begin prosecution of the former senators promptly.”
