 President Muhammadu Buhari, may have asked the Senate to probe Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom, his Osun State counterpart, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola and other governors over how they spent the bailout disbursed to them by the Federal Government.

Subsequently, the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has ordered the Senate Committee on State and Local Government Administration to proceed on a fact finding mission to Osun State to investigate how the Aregbesola administration applied the N34.988,900 given to it by the Central Bank of Nigeria as bailout to pay workers’ salaries.

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on States and Local Government Administration, Senator Abdullahi  A. Gumel, in a letter dated  November 3rd and forwarded to Aregbesola informed the governor that the senate committee would visit the state on December 7 for the investigation.

A copy of the letter which stated that the probe was part of the  oversight functions of the Senate was made available to newsmen on Monday.
