Governor Ahmed warns Buhari not to use excess crude account for 2019 campaign

Kwara state Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, has told President Muhammadu Buhair, not to divert the $1billion deduction from the Excess Crude Account (ECA), to other purposes.

Ahmed stated this on Thursday in Ilorin, while speaking with reporters.

The Governor called on Buhari to maintain his integrity status and use the money for the purchase of military weapons to fight Boko Haram.

“We believe that integrity of the president as a straightforward president would come to play that the fund that is meant for security is going to be used for security purpose,” Ahmed said.

Ahmed has also written the State House of Assembly, for approval of Kwara’s share of the $1billion from the account, to be deducted.

The Governor’s letter addressed to the Speaker, Ali Ahmad and dated May 23, 2018, was read by the Deputy Speaker, Mathew Okedare at the floor of the House on Wednesday.
