Reps Threatens To Order The Arrest Of T.Y. Danjuma, Bichi

The House of Representatives Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has threatened to issue an arrest warrant against the chairman of the Presidential Committee on North East Initiative (PCNI), TY Danjuma and the Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TetFund), Abdulahi Bichi, Daily Trust reports.

PAC said the arrest warrant became necessary after the Danjuma and Bichi failed to honour the panel’s invitation to explain the queries issued against them by the Auditor General of the Federation.

Chairman of the committee, Kingsley Chinda gave a deadline of next Tuesday for both of them to appear before it.

“The attitude of some of these agencies is irresponsible, particularly now that the fight against corruption is raging and some MDAs will neglect invitation to answer queries raised by the Auditor General.
 “This committee will not hesitate to invoke Sections 88 and 89, particularly Section 89 (c), if they fail to appear before us next week Tuesday,” Chinda said.

He directed the committee’s secretariat to send a letter summoning the duo within 24 hours.
