Lagos lawyer, Festus Keyamo, has urged the Federal Government to publish the country’s revenue accounts. Keyamo was reacting against the backdrop of the controversy over what was left in the nation’s coffers by the Goodluck Jonathan’s administration
He said, on his Twitter handle “A new government says it met an empty treasury; the (former government) says it left plenty. Yet none publishes a full statement of the account.”
While the Muhammadu Buhari’s administration claims it met an ‘empty treasury’, a former National Planning minister, Suleiman faulted the claim, and insisted Jonathan left funds in excess of $40 Billion in the coffers.
Keyamo also said the rebellion of some All Progressives Congress lawmakers in the National Assembly was because the party was formed “in rebellion against the Peoples Democratic Party” which had ruled the country for 16 years.
Reacting to the disagreement between past and present government officials over the looting of the country’s treasury, Keyamo advised the government to publish the nation’s revenue accounts in order to verify who was right or wrong.
The APC had been embroiled in an internal crisis since the emergence of Senator Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara as the Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives respectively.
Fresh crisis emerged on Thursday after Saraki and Dogara rejected the directive contained in a letter sent by the APC to the National Assembly over the selection of its principal officers.
The Lagos lawyer, therefore, asked the leaders of the APC to resolve its crisis with a clear understanding of its foundation.
Keyamo said, “The APC is a child of rebellion against the PDP. Its members in the National Assembly are products of that rebellion. The APC must recognise this in managing the crisis
