Leading human rights campaigner, Femi Falana, has called for a probe into the unauthorised withdrawal made by President Muhammadu Buhari from the Excess Crude Account (ECA).

In his reaction to the raging controversy trailing the withdraw of $469 million to pay for Tucano aircrafts in the United States, the senior advocate said the days of anticipatory approvals should be over in the country.

According to him, “Since 1999, anticipated approvals have been the order of the day. Presidents (Olusegun) Obasanjo, (Umaru) Yar’Adua and (Goodluck) Jonathan were alleged to have spent N1.5 trillion without parliamentary approval. We thought that that era had gone for good.

“The National Assembly should investigate the withdrawal with a view to stopping the executive.” (Nigerian Tribune)
