In this overview, we examine the main highlights and findings of the post N500billion: “You must start Anchor Borrowers’ Fund probe from Niger State” Vatsa tells Tinubu.
A Stalwart and Former Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Niger State, Hon. Jonathan Vatsa has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to start his probe into the alleged misappropriation of the N500billion Anchor Borrowers Fund from Niger state if he is truly serious about his anti corruption crusade.
Vatsa said President Tinubu has the opportunity to write his name in gold if he makes bold his statement and go ahead to probe the disbursement of the anchor Borrowers Fund, adding that “I will be the happiest person if such probe can begin from Niger state.”
The APC Chieftain while speaking in a live radio phone in programme on Tuesday in Minna and monitored by New Telegraph said “the anchor Borrowers scheme was a scam, and I strongly urged Mr. President to start the probe from Niger state”.
Vatsa however warned that it would be a disservice to the country if President Tinubu decides to politize his probe of the Anchor Borrowers Fund by limiting it to States that have governors in the opposition parties states alone.
Accordingly, he said “we will be interested to know those farmers that benefited from this anchor Borrowers fund in Niger State. We will get to know whether they are the same farmers that were chased away from their farms and their ancestral homes by bandits or the farmers in government house and supervising ministries.
