Federal government uncovers financial anomalies in Nigerian Law School records
The Office of Auditor-General of the Federation has said it uncovered several anomalies in the financial records of the Nigerian Law School.
The Audit report presented to the Senate, indicted the apex legal academic institution for misappropriation and spending without approvals.
The 2015 Financial Report of the office is currently being scrutinised by the Senate Public Accounts Committee for investigation.
The Auditor-General, Anthony Ayine said the management of the Nigerian Law School illegally paid N32million to the account of an unnamed cleaner over a period of 12 months.
The Auditor-General report also queried the payment of N36million as dressing allowance of 52 workers to the account of a single member of staff in violation of Nigeria’s Financial Act.
Dazed by the startling revelation at the audit session, the Director-General of the Nigerian Law School, Professor Isa Chiroma, said he was not in office when the issues occurred, but agreed that “government is a continuum, however, the panel, nevertheless asked him to recover the money involved and return same into the school’s account.
