In his words “As a government that strongly adhers to accountability, I also ordered for the audit of the activities of the administration of the 23 Local Government Areas in the past three years in order to ascertain the proper utilization of funds within the period”.

This audit will assess the proper utilization of funds during the previous administration, ensuring transparency and responsible governance which many think it could lead to prosecution of prominent indigene of the state and possibly involvement of Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) in the perceived fight against the governor’s oppositions.
