President Bola Tinubu has summoned the Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo to the Presidential Villa.
The summon follows the controversy that has hitched the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, and the award of a consultancy contract to the tune of N538 million, for the National Social Register to New Planet Projects Ltd, a company Tunji-Ojo is said to be a beneficial owner. Tunji-Ojo has denied owning the company.
In an interview with Channels TV on Monday, January 8, Tunji-Ojo said
“I am not a signatory to the company. As I’ve always said, I came into public office with a commitment to base my service on sincerity of purpose and openness. I believe that Nigerians don’t deserve to be kept in the dark in terms of public office operations. And actually, I was shocked because the company in question was a company where I was a director. About five years ago, I had resigned from my directorship”
