Missing N24bn Police Pension: "Okonjo-Iweala Forged And Faked Documents"

 Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Accused Of Brandishing Fake, Forged Documents
Finance Minister Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala 
On Thursday, Finance Minister Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala was accused of brandishing 
fake and forged documents in her defence in the case of the N24bn missing from 
Police pension fund.
The House of Representatives Committee on Public Accounts argued that the Minister had
 falsely claimed the money was not missing but paid into bank accounts.
Members of the Committee included Director General of Pension Transitional Arrangement 
Department, Mrs. Nellie Mayshak, and representatives of the Office of the Accountant
General of the Federation.
Chairman of the committee Mr. Solomon Olamilekan maintained there are no verifiable 
documents  before the committee to track the N24bn to any bank accounts.
Moreover, Olamilekan noted, instead of honouring the Committee's invitation to discuss the 
issue,  the Minister opted to make a press statement on the ongoing investigation.
The Committee, therefore, challenged Dr. Okonjo-Iweala to a public debate which would be 
broadcast live, with all media representatives present, and inform Nigerians on the fate
of N24bn.
