The SSA, Imran Jibrin confirmed that he has no link to the apprehension of the affected staff who were interrogated by the Department of State Security, The Focal Person in an interview said he has no hands in the arrest of the consultant, Desk Officer, and the Programme Manager.
Saying the matter is under investigation by the secret police. Imrana Jibrin revealed that he was directed to write a statement of his involvement in the diversion and inclusion of beneficiaries of the programme by security agents.
“This was something that was ongoing secretly not until people blown it by posting the whole issue on Facebook castigating me for reporting the arrested staff to police”..
The Focal Person declined further comment rather told Journalists to wait till the outcome of the investigation by the secret police.
He denied increasing the number of beneficiaries from Nasarawa Local Government ahead of three Local Governments in the name of favouring his people Nasarawa Local Government.
Imran Jibrin was accused of favouring the people of Nasarawa Local Government, his own local Government by increasing the number of beneficiaries to 24,000 which is three times the number of beneficiaries from Awe, Doma, and Lafia.
An investigation conducted by Universal Reporters online from the Nasarawa State capital can authoritatively reveal that majority of pupils of primary one to three benefiting from the ongoing Federal Government school feeding Programme are prone to lose the opportunity due to the short notice given by the power that be.
Nasarawa State would miss the golden opportunity to enroll more pupils into the programme which currently has a total of 196,496 beneficiaries.
It was gathered that the programme which was meant to indulge the service of corp members that would conduct data capture of fresh beneficiaries is passing through some bottleneck.
It was gathered that when Imran Jibrin takes over the helms of affairs of his new office everything was shrouded in secrecy by the Programme Manager, The consultant, and the Desk Officer.
The questions that needed answers are what was the specific number of beneficiaries, a number of benefiting schools, pupils benefiting from the School Feeding Programme, what about the aggregators in Nasarawa state before the coming of the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Humanitarian services, Social Investment Programme and Focal Person.
“I would not comment because the matter is before security agencies”.
It was gathered that some of the facilities meant for data capture are dysfunctional machines. It was gathered that the team leader from the Federal Capital Territory unleashed the dragon on sharp practices that perturbed the Programme.
An impeccable source revealed that in the list of schools, some of the existing schools and data of pupils were captured twice, Only time shall tell.
At press time either the embattled Programme Manager or the Desk Officer would not be reached for comment.
