The House of Representatives Committee on Public Account has said it would commence considerations of queries raised on financial impropriety by the Auditor General for the Federation to Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of the federal government.

The Chairman of the Committee, Hon. Wole Oke disclosed this in Abuja at its resumed hearing bothering on accountability by MDAs.

He said that the Auditor General for the Federation had laid his annual report part 1 in respect of 2018 financial year.

He also said that the annual report came along with performance audit report on Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) on maintenance of federal roads.

He added that the Auditor General had laid his performance audit report on the budgeting process in Nigeria before the committee.

‘’So, we now have these three documents in our kitty and we shall commence considerations of the queries on issues raised by inviting the relevant MDAs of government. Including on the spot assessment inspection of the projects where the Auditor General has cast doubt or aspersions on, so that we can have value for money reports.’’

He therefore called on the clerk to convey the queries on the issues raised to the affected MDAs and schedule a day for their appearances.
