The House Of Representatives Committee On public accounts has asked  The Ministry of Industries, trade and investment to refund the N75 Billion allocated to it as COVID-19 intervention funds to the coffers of the government with immediate effect.

The committee also asked the federal ministry of health to refund to the coffers of the government the sum of N10 Billion meant for vaccine production which was not utilised for that purpose.

The committee gave the directive to the two ministries at the resumed investigative hearing on the expenditure of the COVID-19 intervention fund by MDAS, after failing to appear before  the committee’s initial summons, despite several invitations

Recall that the public accounts committee began investigating 56 Ministries departments and agencies (MDAS) on the utilisation of covid-19 intervention funds.
