Why I'm Probing My Predecessor—Yuguda


Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State has explained that he probed his predecessor, Alhaji Muazu Adamu, for failure to keep proper documents during his tenure.

Yuguda made this known on Sunday in Bauchi while briefing newsmen.

He explained that he resorted to the probe because when he took over the mantle of leadership in 2007, his predecessor did not hand over any document to him, especially those bordering on state expenditure.

Yuguda said that all government transactions, especially those bothering on contracts which were said to have been signed by the State Ministry of Justice, were mere agreements.

“When I came into power, I discovered that there was no evidence of government records, may be instructions were just given to the treasury to release funds.

“Once you sign an agreement with the ministry of justice, a cheque is issued to you as there was no procurement law and no financial regulations. They just select an environment and direct you or Julius Berger to build a house or school and order you to bring your bill.

“The expenditure of the last administration was not approved by the state House of Assembly, it would have been legitimate expenditure if appropriated by the lawmakers,” Yuguda said.
