    Money deposited in banks through transfer or otherwise to tackle covid-19 can be traced by EFCC because they monitor all account.
    Madam finance minister was absolutely wrong by saying FG lost 700 billion naira because the accountant general office caught fire.
    The President is trying his best at the moment and his good works need no dent like what Madam Finance minister is saying now oooooooo

  4. They really think of us as senseless to tell us N700 billion was kept in an office? Same Government that is promoting a cashless economy?

    Our greatest fight in Nigeria right now is not the coronavirus but this group if people that claim to have Nigeria and Nigerian’s interest at heart.

  8. What!!! Well I’m not surprise because I expected This after hearing that the Account General office was destroyed by Fire. But please don’t forget That they always said ** no important document was lost **

  9. Dis is a joke wallai,700billion got burnt in an office,na so them think say 9ja people mumu reach? I bet most of dat money goes to reimbursement of d Boko Haram ammunition seized by d Chad government,it is becoming clear who is sponsoring who

    1. These people think Nigerians are fools that 700billion got burnt and cannot be accounted for. …let them know that the law of karma is waiting for them.

  10. Ever felt Nigeria was a corrupt country? This is the real corruption, happening under the nose of Mr. Integrity…I hope Nigerians will learn how to vote wisely henceforth.

  11. D money did not burn, documents burnt, money in d bank, another documents can b formed. In fact dis is a fake news, which news paper/s published it and date.

  12. Please,minister of finance or what is name of your office, Is accountant general office is our National bank ? Pls kindly organised yourselves properly.we are not fool in this country,just count yourselve lucky to be there.

  13. Nigerians are not fools to believe this cheap prank in other to steal such a huge amount of money amidst the sufferings in the nation.
    Something worse than covid 19 will definitely destroy all those involved in this lies and evil to humanity.

  14. Is this the change APC promise us? Mr president wake up before your cabinets bring you down.

  15. This news is a “bogus lie” Nothing of such could be referenced to Honourable Minister. The fake news must have been fabricated by this medium. Show video of the press conference. No mainstream media pick the news.

  16. The logic that madam minister is doing to cover their heist is very clear, they were been asked by the sanete to bring document of the money, after some hours fire bursted the office of accountant as they dont have access to burn the central bank of nigeria, now after burning the office, they said the document is missing and she charge a bribed police to investigate the cause of d fire, oh when this country will be said to have been free frm criminals $ unpatriotic people ?

  17. This is deception from this people I bet you, we are not ignorant of what is happening In this country we refuse to be furtherly mesmerized or bambozled by your infidel attitude it is either the money is refunded or the person who is in charge of the money should be given an indefinate removal from office and still be trialled simple wicked fools

  18. May corona virus kill all of you, including the useless and senseless person that gives you all this positions. Allah yaisa.

  19. Hmmmm, we all understand. This fire do us bad o. If not for the fire issue, you people will give proper account I trust.

  20. Every wealth acquired on earth fraudulently will surely perish with who ever involves. Vanity upon vanity. No mortal being will live for ever. What ever you have will end the day you’ll die. So continue with your evil style of governance.

  21. Group of zoo, I know it will end that way I thought as much ,that is the reason why they didn’t use BVN giving cash by hand corrupt people

  22. We are at it again just like before. The cabal of Nigeria government has done what they know how to do best. looting of funds made for Nigeria citizen and creating one so called untraceable damage to make it look like a surprising accident which can be cause by no one just to cover their evil act. But one thing i am so sure of is that no matter the evil power one may have . when someone decided to take happiness and food from someone mouth for his or her own benefit,then happiness and food will be taken from that person generation in time to come.

  23. Sorry sorry o I sorry for nigeria, sorry sorry ï sorry for africa…. This is how Nigeria has been hack. THUNDER FIRE ALL OF THEM THAT HAVE HAND IN THIS. WE Nigerians may not have the power to deal with you. But God ALMIGHTY will visit you and your generation to come one by one with his wrath.

  24. Please clarify if the server where the information was stored got burnt and there was no back-up. Hope the CBN was part of the committee and other system has the information. It mean Nigeria is still operating in stone age era. To God be the Glory, no matter what we shall face the creator one day.

  25. According to the cleric, the fire incident occurred shortly after the National Assembly asked the FG to explain how it disbursed over N2 trillion to the poor and the FG assure that they have the full information on the database.

  29. Is it the documents that got burn or the money, because I known that the house or office of accountant general is not a bank, where all the money was transfer. Or did they pay the money with Ghana must go bag or Does it means that central bank of Nigeria is not working any more. Please fine better lie. When will you guys repent, wait 700 billion or 700 thousand Naira. Why are you gays destroying this country that belongs to all of us. Our Nigeria government have been fighting book haram for more then 7 years now. Killing our ( innocent solders ) why I said innocent soldiers is that some are in the business, where they sale our soldiers to a terrorist group.

Since January 27. 2017 the elected Buhari in 2015 died and buried in Saudi Arabia, it has been film tricks which many this territory natives watch comfortably, at most complain for complain sake. Northern natives has been Eliminating thugs of fulani caliphate with its emirates nickname military and police for end of fulani caliphate with its emirates, while many southern natives feel unconcerned, do say it is northern affairs. Now they know it is not northern affairs, it is affairs of this territory natives. It is either southern natives wake up now, respond the way northern natives responded or remain under bondage of fulani caliphate with its emirates, suffer in it and die in it. The so-called Nigeria which is fulani caliphate with its emirates, has fallen and gone forever- it is Yugoslavia of Africa.

  56. Please no money got burnt in that suya roasting fire, all money transfers can be traced and CBN can tell us the whereabouts of that money that was granted the government for onward disbursement, am glad you called APC here, this is what happens when APC employs incompetent fools manning top government establishments. This government has shown itself as the heaviest corrupt government since independence.
