“Distribution of Relief materials laced with Fraud” – APC Senator, Ali Ndume fires FG

Senator Ali Ndume has attacked the Federal government’s relief committee on COVID-19 headed by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Umar Sadiya Farouk, for being ‘Fraudulent’ in its dealings.

Ndume, a fiery senator from Borno State, while addressing newsmen during a press conference in his Maiduguri home stated that the committee lacks the ‘credibility’ to manage the huge resources at its disposal.

He added that the distribution of the relief materials was marred with ‘Fraud’. In his words;

“I’m not trying to make allegations against the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development; what I’m saying are facts,” he said.

“If they will continue with the way they are doing now, they had better not distribute the palliative at all because it’s a fraud. My concern now is the manner and ways the palliative measures taken by the president are being executed. We have received numerous complaints and it’s very unfortunate.”

“Left to me, I’m calling for the so-called Humanitarian committee headed by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs to be disbanded immediately and the president should set up a task force to handle issues of palliatives.”

Ndume went further to call on President Buhari not to squander his remaining goodwill with the people adding that he should heed several calls for the disbandment of the committee.
