(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Reports emerging from the office of the Auditor- General of the federation which says that it has uncovered financial infractions in the books of the Nigerian Law School which ranged from outright misappropriation to spending without approval and diversion of pension.
The report which was submitted to the Senate Committee on Public Account, stated that N36 million was approved as dressing allowance through the account of one of the staff for 52 others without approval and in violation of Nigeria’s Financial Act and N32 million was paid to an unnamed cleaner over a period of 12 months and this against Nigeria extant laws.
Also, the report revealed that N34.3 million was paid for the training of staff without approval from the federal government.
Since this revelation emerged, Nigerians have taken to Twitter to express themselves with many highlighting that if the process that produces lawyers is corrupt, then Nigerians should expect nothing good from the judiciary.
Here are some of the tweets:
