EFCC grills former Kwara gov, Abdulfatah Ahmed

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, is currently quizzing a former governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed, over shady transactions running into billions of naira while he was in office.

The former governor was seen arriving at the Ilorin office of the EFCC on Monday morning.

The anti-graft agency invited him and he is currently answering questions relating to how his administration spent the funds.

It has been reported that Ahmed was governor of Kwara State between May 2011 and May 2019, before handing over to the incumbent, Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.

Ahmed was once interrogated in May 2021 by a crack team of operatives at the EFCC headquarters in the Jabi area of Abuja, the nation’s capital, in connection with the alleged diversion of funds to the tune of about N9 billion from the coffers of the Kwara State Government.

The money was alleged to have been diverted during Ahmed’s tenure as governor of the state, and when he served as the Commissioner for Finance in the administration of ex-Governor Bukola Saraki.
