It was gathered that the private account belongs to Oniyelu Bridget Mojisola, identified as a project manager of the vulnerable groups in the ministry.

Reacting via X at the weekend, Showunmi urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to avoid wasting time investigating the issue or yielding to emotion in the case.

“Bettygate! Mr President, we have fooled around for too long. Stumbling on the same stone.

“As laudable as social investment in the poor is. We need not waste the time, emotion and resources of this country risking national anger by this fraud that never ends,” he posted.
