Health Ministry Scandal: Time For Obasanjo-Bello To Quit
« on: March 18, 2008, 09:18:49 AM »
The Action Congress said on Monday that it was time for Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello to resign her post as Chairperson of the Senate Committee on Health or be kicked out, after she was named as one of the beneficiaries of the unspent budget of the health ministry, allegedly shared by ministry officials and senators.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party also called on President Umaru Yar?Adua to sanction, without delay, all the government officials involved in sharing the money, if the government?s anti-corruption fight is not to be seen as a ruse.

AC said, ?To the best of our knowledge, Senator Iyabo Obasanjo has not denied receiving a share of the unspent budget running into millions of naira. New revelations have also shown a part of the money was shared out to senators on the committee.

?In the spirit of fair play, we ask that the disclosures be urgently investigated, after which all the members of the committee should be brought to book.??
