The past administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan comes under investigation into how it unequally disbursed N2 billion ecological fund to states.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo disclosed this at the Council Chambers of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja while presiding over the National Economic Council meeting.
It comes governors complained to the council that the N2 billion ecological fund purported to have been paid to some states Jonathan’s administration was “under unclear circumstances and criteria.”
Many governors complained to the council that state governments did not have equal access to the Ecological Fund, alleging political preferences.
While some governors complained that their states did not have equal share of the fund, others said theirs did not get anything at all.
The vice president assured the council that the issue would be properly investigated and broadly reviewed, adding that “forthright counsel” would also be made to the President regarding the matter.
