A former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has questioned the withdrawal of the $1billion from the Excess Crude Account to fight Boko Haram.

Members of the Nigerian Governors Forum had approved the withdrawal of $1 billion during the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting that was presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

The killing of Nigerian troops has been on the increase in recent times, which has led to Nigerians questioning the use of the $1 billion.

Reacting in a post on his Twitter page on Monday, Fayose asked the federal government what the money was used for.

He wrote: “12 months ago, I kicked against the FG decision to withdraw $1bn from the Excess Crude Account to fund the fight against Boko Haram.

“Three days ago, the military said it was yet to receive the $1bn.

“So I ask, where is the money?

“May God save our country.”
