According to him, most MDAs manipulated budgets, and as a result, they were getting both appropriation and releases that were way more than their real needs. These surpluses were also open to further misappropriation. Unfortunately, this has become a tradition.

As the ICPC reveals rampant fraud among these institutions, the agency head lamented that “despite confronting erring ministries and MDAs with federal circulars prohibiting these activities, the infractions continue thus stronger measures on the part of government and anti-corruption agencies are inevitable”.
