 “Government should tell us and Nigerians – the money that has been alleged to have been approved for revitalisation – how much is it and where is it lodged? When will it be released?” Osodeke said.

 ”The government must clearly state its position on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS), a payroll system that wants as a replacement for the Integrated Payroll and Personnel information system (IPPIS).
