The memo, allegedly from Chief of Staff Femi Gbajabiamila, directs the expenditure for the verification of the National Social Register.

The controversy arises as nine companies reportedly secured contracts from the fund, leading to Edu’s suspension and an ongoing investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The authenticity of the president’s awareness of the fund release is questioned. Special Adviser Bayo Onanuga urges patience as the EFCC investigates.
