A senior member of the Nigeria Bar Association (), has lamented that President Muhammadu Buhari’s nationwide broadcast lacked substance and depth.

Speaking with newsmen on Tuesday, Ukweni complained that Buhari did not say anything about the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation that was burnt few days ago.

The office that gutted fire was Nigeria’s treasury house which houses the funds donated by public-spirited individuals and private institutions to the government to cushion the effect of the pandemic.

Uwkeni who is Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), warned that the donated funds shouldn’t be another incident of a swallowing in Government House. He said:

“We thank the President for addressing Nigerians. He should do so more regularly particularly at this very critical moment. We are happy that he has started talking. I listened to the broadcast. As long as it went, it, however, lacked substance and depths.

“The President said nothing about the monies that were contributed by well-meaning persons and companies towards the fight against COVID-19.

“The President said nothing about the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation that was burnt. That was where they said records of the disbursements were kept.

“Let it not be another incident of a snake swallowing money in Government House. The health workers, what security measures have been put in place as hazards allowances.

“What about the health condition of his Chief of Staff. Those who hold public offices cannot act in secrecy, particularly, when they are being attended to from public funds.

“We knew everything that went on in the treatment of Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister. Nigerians need to know how the money contributed and those votes are being spent. All the materials donated, how, how they shared?” he queried.
