Reps To Probe Mismanagement, Withdrawals Of Ecological Fund
The House of Representatives has resolved to probe the mismanagement of funds by the beneficiaries from the remit of the Ecological Fund between 2010 and 2022.
Particularly, the House mandated its Committee on Ecological Fund to “investigate the total consolidated mandatory accruals into the Ecological Fund from 2010 to March 2022,” adding that the committee should equally “evaluate the disbursement of the Ecological Fund in line with the provision of the 1999 Constitution from 2010 to March 2022.”
The committee is also to “investigate the utilization of the Ecological Fund by benefiting government’s departments and agencies (MDAs) from 2010 to March 2022 and establish infractions (if any).”
The House asked the committee to conduct public hearings with all the major stakeholders to establish these facts on the effective and efficient utilization of the Ecological Fund and report back within six weeks for further legislative action.
