Ikponmwen said, “I find the accusations and counter accusations very interesting and I believe that a government in power has a duty to investigate anything that comes to public glare especially with reference to this issue of money committed to power.

“I believe that beyond allegations and counter accusation, the Buhari government should set up a proper investigation, a judicial panel or a special investigative team to investigate what happened to the budget for power.

“If so much money had been budgeted for power and the country is still suffering the problem of power, it behoves on the government to conduct an investigation so that Nigerians will know the truth about what happened.”
