We’ll forward report on budget padding to Buhari – Sagay

Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Professor Itse Sagay, SAN, has disclosed that outcome of the 2016 budget padding probe would be forwarded to the Presidency and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

“Definitely, a report will be written and it will be forwarded to the appropriate authorities with recommendations. It could be either,” Sagay told newsmen.

On likely recommendation, he said such would be decided when the committee met.

“You know in a matter like this, you cannot say anyone is found culpable yet. When an issue arises and someone forwards a petition to us, because this is like a petition, it could be oral or written.

“In this case, it is both, then when a case has been made, we will forward it to the EFCC, which will then do a proper investigation and decide whether or not there is need for prosecution”, he stated.
