Auditor General for Kwara State Local Government, Hajia R.R. Sulyman, has debunked the claim made by a group called Kwara Stakeholders Consultative Forum on a radio program tagged Kwara Efura, which was aired on Thursday, 15 July 2021.

The group had alleged on the show that the official year 2020 figures and data relating to salaries of Local Government and SUBEB Staff released by the office of the Auditor General for Local Government is false, misleading and untrue.

While replying to this allegation, the auditor general for Kwara State local government made it known that auditing of figures and data for the year 2020 is not yet ready as of today, stating that the auditing of the said data is currently ongoing.

Hajia Sulyman, meanwhile, urged all the concerned persons to desist from playing politics with figures and data, noting that auditing is a sacred duty and should not be used in playing the politics of calumny.

Read the full press release below:

The attention of the office of the Auditor General for Local Government, Kwara State, has been drawn to a radio program held by a group claiming to be the Kwara Stakeholders consultative forum Titled: Kwara Efura on 15th July, 2021.

The statement made on the program that the official year 2020 figures and data relating to salaries of Local Government and SUBEB Staffs emanated from the office of the Auditor General for Local Government is false, misleading and untrue.

It is worthy of note that the auditing of figures and data for the year 2020 is not yet ready as of today as the auditing of the said data is currently ongoing, and it is false for any person, association or group to claim having the official figures and data of an exercise not yet completed from the office of the Auditor General for Local Government.

Finally, Auditing is a sacred duty, and we plead with the said association to desist from playing politics of falsehood in the name of the office of the Auditor General for Local Government.

Thank you.
