The House of Representatives has recommended the sack of the Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Mustapha Maihaja, for alleged mismangement of N33bn funds, a report on Thursday evening from Abuja, the nation's capital, said.

The report quoted the House Committee on Emergency and Disaster Preparedness, which investigated the alleged violation of public trust in the activities of the agency, as saying that the actions and inactions of the Director-General led to the country losing over 33 billion naira through mismanagement and embezzlement.

"The committee’s report," according to Channels, "also indicted all the government officials involved in the processing, release and diversion of the sum of 5.8 billion naira for the emergency intervention of food security in the northeast, which was approved through a memo raised from the office of the acting president.

"The House is urging the relevant security agencies to take steps to recover the 5.8 billion from the government officials."
