Senate, has indicted the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency of financial misappropriation and ordered the agency to recover the sum of ten million dollars it paid as legal and technical charges without recourse to the Consolidated Revenue Fund.
The indictment was a sequel to the reports of twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen of the Auditor General of the Federation considered by the Senate Public Accounts Committee, which was upheld at plenary.
The five million dollars was said to be five per cent of the nine point three billion naira Nigerian hydro-carbon loss between twenty thirteen and fourteen.
The law firm, not disclosed, was expected to carry out necessary legal actions that would enable NIMASA to perfect intelligence-based efforts to track the nation’s hydro-carbon global movement.
The AuGF report indicated that the money was paid from Zenith Bank.
