Tinubu Asserts Nigeria's Abundance of High-Quality Lithium for Clean Energy

President Bola Tinubu has instructed the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to thoroughly investigate the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation’s finances. This directive came in a statement released on Monday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale. Alongside this directive, Minister Betta Edu has been suspended due to a N585 million scandal within the ministry. The suspension coincides with the questioning of Edu’s predecessor, Sadiya Umar-Farouq, by EFCC detectives for approximately 12 hours. The EFCC is probing an alleged N37.1 billion laundering during Umar-Farouq’s term through a contractor named James Okwete.
