Senate Orders IGP to Arrest, Provide CAC Registrar in 24hrs

The Senate has given the Inspector-General of Police 24 hours to compel the Registrar-General of the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), Hussaini Ishaq Magaji, to appear before its Committee on Finance.

During the budget defence meeting on Wednesday, December 20, Senator Sani Musa, chairman of Senate Committee on Finance, requested the appearance of the RG.

This was due to disparities found in the income collection and spending by the Corporate Affairs Commission.

The committee had already found the commission lacking during the MTEF/FP defence.

However, Sen. Musa claimed that the RG had rejected the committee’s summons for a third time, which he viewed as disrespectful to the committee.

He said: “You have your bookkeepers; you have your records and we asked you to go and tidy up and report back, but you never did.”

The committee unanimously resolved that the Inspector-General of Police compel his presence before the Finance Committee unfailingly on Thursday.
