The National Coalition Against Corruption (NCAC) has advised against the reinstatement of Mrs. Betta Edu as Minister in the Nigerian government, particularly within the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.

The coalition, through its spokesman, Amb. Abdullahi Mas’ud said issues surrounding Mrs. Edu’s tenure raise grave concerns about integrity, transparency, and accountability in public office.

Speaking at an event organized by the Community of Persons with Disability in Nigeria to celebrate the 72nd Birthday of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Amb. Abdullahi stated that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC) investigation into Mrs. Edu’s refusal to adhere to the ethics of governance and management of public funds, specifically her approval for the payment of approximately N585 million into a private account, underscores the need for stringent measures to combat corruption.

“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s decision to suspend Mrs. Edu from office following these revelations demonstrates a commitment to upholding the highest standards of governance.”

Abdullahi lamented that allegations against Mrs. Edu are deeply troubling, especially in a ministry tasked with addressing the needs of the most vulnerable segments of society.

According to him, “the misappropriation of funds intended for poverty alleviation and humanitarian aid represents a betrayal of public trust and undermines efforts to mitigate the effects of economic hardship faced by millions of Nigerians as her actions have delayed the presidents’ policies unnecessary.

“The NCAC echoes the sentiments of the Nigerian populace, who demand transparency and accountability from their leaders, particularly in times of economic hardship.”

Abdullahi reiterated that reinstating Mrs. Edu as Minister will send the wrong message and erode public confidence in the government’s commitment to combating corruption and promoting the welfare of its citizens.

The coalition also commended President Tinubu’s swift action in suspending Mrs. Edu and urge him to uphold the integrity of his administration by ensuring that individuals with questionable ethical conduct are not reinstated to positions of authority.
