Former APC Chieftain Tells Buhari to Account for $1bn Withdrawn from ECA

Former deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC),  Timi Frank has asked the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to give an account of the $1 billion withdrawn from the Excess Crude Account (ECA) to tackle insurgency and other forms of crimes across states of the country.

Frank who is another critic of the present administration made the call amidst the growing security challenge facing the country.

Recall that the withdrawal from the ECA got the approval of the 36 state governors under the aegis of the Nigeria Governor’s Forum (NGF) with the aim of tackling insurgency.

Meanwhile, the spate of killings by bandits and kidnappings particularly in the Northeast and Northwest states which has been on the rise continued to generate concern.

In a statement released to newsmen, Frank noted that corruption and incompetence of the Service Chiefs were responsible for the scary security challenge despite what he called the humongous public fund deployed to combat the banditry and kidnappings.

The former APC stalwart said that the President has woefully failed to protect Nigerians and demanded that the current “tired and incompetent heads of security agencies and Service Chiefs be sacked.”

“No serious government will keep incompetent Service Chiefs if the President himself is not personally benefiting from their cluelessness,” he noted.

Frank who expressed concern that the Minister of Defence, Mansur Dan Ali has not resigned from office despite the fact that his state, Zamfara and President Buhari home state of Katsina were at the mercy of mindless bandits said the only achievement of the current administration is propaganda and fake news to defend their looting.

While noting that the number of lives lost and that of people displaced on a daily basis across the country is Buhari’s responsibility which he must account for, Frank said the president only cares about his ambition.
