Secret Reporters investigation has found Senate President Bukola Saraki culpable in a financial scam currently rocking the Senate of the National Assembly.
We gathered that the Senate President is using his power in collaboration with the clerk of the National Assembly who is due to retire next month to make money at the detriment of the Legislative Aides.
Information available to our medium is that, he tactically moved the National Assembly Legislative Aides Account, Members of the House of Representatives Account, Over Head Cost Account, and other special accounts from Skye Bank to Heritage Bank where he is the major shareholder.
In perpetuation of this fraud, there is always delay in payments to earn pool incomes and interests.
Further information shows that the January salaries were not paid until 18th February, while February salaries are still not paid.
The two-time Duty Tower Allowances are also not paid, while the first 28th days that is supposed to be paid last year are still not paid.
Recollect that last year; the supplementary budget which was passed, N10.3 billion was approved to National Assembly to pay severance, allowances of former aides, present aides and former members.
The National Assembly Clerk, through the instructions of Saraki, kept the money to accumulate interest until last week Wednesday when they paid the first batch.
The account department confirmed to us that few aides from the office of the Senate President and Deputy Senate President were selected and paid.
Further investigations prove that, Saraki and the Clerk, in a sinister move, had made well orchestrated plans to move the Senate Account to Heritage Bank , which happens to be his bank, but a careful thought and danger which could follow this, and the fear of the likes of Senator Kabir Marafa made them retreat.
With depleting economy in Nigeria, Bukola Saraki had gone ahead to purchased his official car and convoy cars at N300 million.
