Minister’s Suspension Will Earn Tinubu Nigerians’ Trust – Ex-Oyo AG


An ex-Oyo State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Prof Oyelowo Oyewo, has said that the suspension of Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr Betta Edu, over alleged N585 million fraud will further earn President Bola Tinubu Nigerians’ trust.

Oyewo, who said this in an interview with newsmen, described that President’s prompt action on the financial scandal as a right step in the right direction.

“Tinubu has demonstrated that Nigerians should keep their trust in him,” he said.

Oyewo stated that successive administrations treated ministers like kings, as if they were untouchable and could go scot free with damning allegations of financial impropriety.

DAILY POST reports that Tinubu had, on Monday, ordered the immediate suspension of the minister, pending conclusion of investigations into the alleged payment of over N585 million into a private account.
