A  group, Congress for National Democrats (CND), has charged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to re-visits the petition filed against the former Governor of Bauchi State, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, over alleged siphoning of N9 billion from the excess crude oil funds meant for the 20 local government area of the state during his regime.

Fielding questions from journalists Sunday in Bauchi, Chairman of the group, Alhaji B.B Dogo, said the call became necessary since the EFCC invited the former governor over the allegation sometime last year, nothing has been heard concerning the issue.

Dogo, who expressed sadness that Mu’azu was allowed to walk freely as an innocent man, despite the series of petitions against him, while he was the chief executive of the state.

“We can’t afford to fall our arms watching innocent people being hampered by abject poverty and that informs our decision to urges the EFCC to re-visit the case file against Mua’azu to ensure justice and equity and to serve as deterrent to others,” Dogo fumed.
On the 2015 presidency, the group opined that the North-east should produce the president because it has not ruled since after the First Republic when Alhaji Abubakar Tafawa Balewa served as prime minister.
