I Spent Only N1.2bn On Funerals, Not N2.3bn — Bauchi Ex-Gov

PublishedBy: in Nigeria NewsJune 27, 2019 -


Former governor of Bauchi State, Mohammed Abubakar, has said he only spent 1.2 billion on funeral materials and not 2.3 billion as alleged.

Speaking through Mukhtar Jibril, his media aide, the former governor said he inherited the practice of buying funeral materials from his predecessors due to its impact on the people.

Governor Bala Mohammed of the state had accused his predecessor of spending 2.3 billion on funeral materials in five months. Jibril said in a statement that the purchases passed through “due process” and awarded to qualified contractors.

He said: “In response to media reports on the issue of mahogany and shrouds procured for burials, we want to state that this is a practice inherited by the government of Abubakar from its predecessors.

Considering its significance and impact on the people, especially the bereaved, it decided to continue with it. However, the project, like any other of the same magnitude, was awarded to qualified contractors.

Based on the available verifiable record, 1,270,743,520 had been expended since its inception and not the exaggerated figure of 2.3 billion mischievously posted on the social media by critics. .

We urge the good people of the state to disregard this insinuation as act of desperation by elements of retrogression. .

Besides, every contract awarded was subjected to the scrutiny and appraisal of the due process agency in accordance with public procurement law, contract agreement, payment of tax due on such contracts and other requirements.”
