The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reportedly invited the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu, to its headquarters located in Jabi area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

This invitation is coming shortly after Tinubu announced her suspension from office.

Edu is facing backlash over a memo instructing the Accountant-General of the Federation, Oluwatoyin Madein, to transfer N585 million meant for vulnerable groups in Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Ogun and Lagos states into a private account belonging to one Oniyelu Bridget.

An operative of the EFCC, who confirmed the development to Daily Trust, said the anti-graft agency had earlier recommended the immediate suspension of the Minister in order to pave way for the ongoing investigation that had been ordered by the President.

“Our investigation into the alleged payment won’t be thorough if we didn’t recommend the Minister’s suspension. Her suspension will give us liberty to do our job thoroughly as directed by the President.

“An official invitation by the commission has already been sent to her. We expect her to honour the invitation to give proper insight into the issue at hand. So, we expect her to arrive here anytime soon,” the EFCC official said.
