The Public Accounts Committee of the House of Representatives Thursday resolved to pursue sanctions against the Director-General of the Budget office, Dr. Ben Akabueze.

The Committee led by Rep. Wole Oke (PDP-Osun) made the decision after adopting a motion of privilege raised by its Deputy Chairman, Rep. Abdulkadir Abdullahi (PDP-Bauchi).

The lawmakers said they moved for the DG to be penalized because he wrote an abusive and contemptuous letter to the Committee, in his response to a query, that he was hoarding a $36.1million personnel funds belonging to the Office of the Auditor General of the Federation and another $1.5million supposed to be released to the office as a grant.
