JUST IN!!! Gowon Drops Bombshell, See What He Said Should Be Done To Those Involved In Budget Padding



Former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (rtd), on Wednesday called for the prosecution of anyone indicted for budget padding.

He insisted that those connected to the matter should be prosecuted to serve as deterrent to others.

Speaking with journalists at the Health Caravan and Award Ceremony for the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, who was conferred with the title of Royal Ambassador for Hepatitis Advocacy in Nigeria, by the Seham Health Care Foundation, Gowon wondered why budget padding has become the order of the day in Nigeria.

He said such never occurred during his administration.

He said: “If that is true. If anybody is doing that, the person should be checked and stopped to ensure that such does not occur in the future. We didn’t do it during my time. We had the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo in-charge of our finance during my time and he taught us to survive without borrowing. Such (budget padding) should stop, there is no point doing that.”

The former Head of State also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to firm up the ailing economy in order to alleviate the suffering of the masses.
