The Public Account Committee of the House of Representatives has indicted the management of some universities in Nigeria for failing to render audited reports.

Some of the schools indicted include; the University of Calabar, Federal University of Technology Owerri, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, and the University of Agriculture, Makurdi.

Others are the University of Jos, the University of Ilorin, and the Federal University of Technology, Akure.

In the report submitted by the Chairman of the Committee on Public Account, Oluwole Oke, the schools did not render their audited account for years.

For the University of Calabar, the Committee recommended that the former Vice Chancellor, former Bursars, present Vice Chancellor, and his Bursar should be sanctioned and handed over to EFCC for non-rendition of audited accounts to the Office of the Auditor General from 2012 to 2018.

In the case of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, the Committee recommended that the former Vice Chancellor, former Bursar, and present Vice Chancellor should be sanctioned and handed over to EFCC for non-rendition of 2016 – 2018 audited accounts.

For the Federal University of Technology Owerri, the panel recommended that the Vice Chancellor and the Bursar should be sanctioned.

Meanwhile, 54 agencies were also recommended for sanction for shunning the invitation of the Committee.

The Committee asked the House to issue arrest warrants against the heads of the 54 agencies to ensure they appear before the House.

The Committee listed the CBN, the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), the Niger Delta Development Commission, and the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission as some of the prominent culprits.
