While the FRSC disclosed its N1.5bn remittances as of June 2022 which was confirmed by the Fiscal Responsibility Commission; the director from the Accountant-General Office put it at N27m.

Faleke said: “You’re using analogue because you issued them the receipts; you gave them the treasury receipt.

“The problem you even have is that your receipts are handwritten. It should be automatically generated. You as director of funds sitting down here should be with your laptop.”

He said the committee wanted to see the audited report and determine how much the agencies ought to have remitted along with fiscal responsibility.”
