N19.3bn salary bailout: We will prove EFCC wrong with facts – Kogi govt

Mr. Kingsley Fanwo, the Kogi State Commissioner for Information and Communication, has stated that the State Government has information to refute the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s claim of bailout funds (EFCC).

The EFCC has certified the return of N19. 33 billion in Kogi State pay bailout monies to the Central Bank of Nigeria, according to the report (CBN).

In a statement to NAN, Fanwo said the Kogi administration will prepare a thorough response to what it called the EFCC’s “desperate measures.”

The action, according to the commissioner, was just a ploy for the EFCC to salvage face over its unethical behavior in the case.

“It is laughable the EFCC’s attempt to desperately wriggle out of a bad case with another mischief aimed, again, at misleading Nigerians.

“The EFCC had finally exposed the fact that it had been pursuing a political agenda all along.

“The press statement by the commission is a malicious attempt to rope the state into a matter that ordinarily has nothing to do with our dear state.

“We maintain the unassailable truth that the Kogi State Government did not operate such account with the Sterling Bank as affirmed in a letter by the bank.

“We sympathise with the EFCC as it has been a herculean task to cover the initial misinformation and deliberate deceit by the commission,” the statement added.

Fanwo stressed that the Kogi government would react to the latest EFCC’s statement comprehensively, noting that “every option that is legal will be considered to maintain the innocence and transparency of our government.”

“Kogites (Kogi people) and indeed, Nigerians should be rest assured that we will get to the root of this matter,” he assured.
