Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) has called on the EFCC to begin probing past governors of the Central Bank- Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi II, and Charles Soludo and others for allegedly diverting state funds.
In a petition to the EFCC, Falana said current finance minister, Kemi Adeosun, hasn’t taken required steps to recover billions of dollars “either criminally diverted or illegally withheld” from government account.
EFCC needs to act now given “the increasing pressures being mounted on the Federal Government by the parasitic faction of the ruling class to auction the remaining assets of the nation,” he said.
He also expressed readiness to “provide all relevant documents to facilitate” the investigation of the serious economic and financial crimes disclosed in this petition.
His comment followed calls by businessman, Aliko Dangote, and the senate president, Bukola Saraki, for the government to sell national asset to stem recession.
