‘I don’t know where the former Minister got his N2.8b

Hadiza Bala Usman, special adviser to the president on policy coordination, has responded to the allegations made against her by Rotimi Amaechi, her former boss and Minister of Transportation under the Buhari administration.

Speaking at a lecture on Thursday, the former minister had alleged, among other things, that Bala Usman gave approval for a contract worth N2.8bn during her time as managing director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).

Amaechi also said many of the things written in Bala Usman’s book, ‘Stepping on Toes’, are false.

Reacting in a statement on Saturday, Bala Usman said: “I don’t know where the former Minister got his N2.8b figure from since this accusation was nowhere in the list of infractions conveyed to me in a query arising from the reports of the Administrative Panel of Inquiry he set up.”
