POLITICS: Confusion as Buhari Disagrees with Auditor General over Lake Chad Report

 President Mohammadu Buhari and Auditor General of the Federation, AGF, Samuel Ukura on Monday disagreed over the environmental audit reports on the drying-up of the Lake Chad.While the president noted that the report did not take into account the feasibility study conducted by a team under the tenure of former President Olusegun Obasabjo which cost Nigeria $5 million, the AGF insisted that that was outside his supervision, saying that Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC) has that responsibility. But the president insisted that the AGF should give relevant explanations of the omission.
The development caused a minor stir in the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa, where the presentation was made.
Following the silence of surprise that ensued, the President requested that someone should interprete what the AGF meant, and later asked the Executive Secretary of the LCBC, Ambassador Sanusi Imran Abdullahi, to give his side of the story.
The Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC or CBLT in French) is an intergovernmental organization that oversees water and other natural resource usage in the basin. There are eight member governments—i.e., Cameroon, Chad, Niger, Nigeria, Algeria, the Central African Republic, Libya, and Sudan—chosen for their proximity to Lake Chad.[1][2]
The organization's secretariat is located in N'Djamena, Chad. The LCBC is Africa's oldest river or lake-basin organization.
