The Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, on Tuesday, failed to honor an invitation by the Code of Conduct Bureau over an ongoing investigation bordering on an alleged breach of the Code of Conduct for public officers.
According to reports, the minister was scheduled to meet with interrogators at 11 am at the CCB headquarters, Federal Secretariat, Abuja but failed to show up.
Speaking to newsmen, the Bureau’s spokesperson, Veronica Kato said the minister’s interrogation would be rescheduled for a later date following his memo to the bureau citing national assignment.
“Yes, the minister’s interrogation has been rescheduled. He wrote, asking that it be rescheduled because he has a national assignment, so it has been rescheduled for a later date,” Kato said.
As reported by the Guardian, the CCB had invited the minister over the involvement of his company in a four hundred and thirty-eight million naira contract with the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.
