The former Kwara State Commissioner for Special Duties Aisha Pategi who resigned under controversial circumstances has dared the Kwara State Government to publish to publish the local governments’ financial accounts starting from 2019.
Prior to her controversial resignation, the Ex-Commissioner had, in July, accused the state’s ministry of finance of diverting N300 million local government funds while she headed the Ministry for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.
Aisha dared the Kwara State Government in a tweet she made in the early hours on Monday after being silent for a while since her controversial resignation.
While responding to a claim that that the local government councils are autonomous, she tweeted “Absolutely not true… publish all LGA accounts from may 2019 to date. #freekwaraLGAmoney.”
Although, the Kwara State Governor had set up a commission of inquiry to look into the alleged diversion of the N300 million local government councils funds but no report has been submitted yet.220
