Another $1.4m Scandal Hits Buhari's Govt. As Army General Is Detained by Temtee11223344: 9:13pm On Nov 08, 2017
Yet another scandal has reared its head threatening the President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption campaign and making it look like a joke.

This is after the revelation of a contract scandal in the ministry of defence which has landed a brigadier-general in military court, online site, the cable has revealed.

At the centre of the latest development are Mansur Dan-Ali, a retired brigadier-general and minister of defence, Danjuma Nanfo, the immediate past permanent secretary in the ministry, and LYM Hassan, a brigadier-general and coordinator of peacekeeping.

Hassan is now in detention and facing court-martial.

The cable revealed that the court martial, which began on October 30, 2017, Dan-Ali, Nanfo, and Hassan have disclosed how money was shared from a $1.4 million contract without the job being executed.

The contract was for the relocation and refurbishment of Level 2 Ministry Hospital under the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilisation Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) following a directive from the UN.

A UN Level 2 hospital is a second line or “brigade/sector” level surgical facility for limited specialist ex­pertise and limited surgical ca­pabilities, including life, limb and organ-saving surgeries.

Un­der the UN system, 18 Level 2 hospitals are being operated by troop-/police-contributing countries.

Countries get paid by the UN for the use of their facilities.

Ni­geria’s Level 2 hospital was established to support the United Nations Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) in 2008.

The hospital was later relocated to its temporary site in Timbuk­tu in 2013 to support MI­NUSMA.

For those who can't read and understand with a clear mind;

"Ni­geria’s Level 2 hospital was established to support the United Nations Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) in 2008.

The hospital was later relocated to its temporary site in Timbuk­tu in 2013 to support MI­NUSMA."

"The cable revealed that the court martial, which began on October 30, 2017, Dan-Ali, Nanfo, and Hassan have disclosed how money was shared from a $1.4 million contract without the job being executed."

When was the money shared and when are those involved being 'court martialed?'

You could try reading the full story from the link provided. Otherwise this is the gist:

INTERNATIONAL EMBARRASSMENT

The problem started for Ni­geria’s full-fledged Level 2 hospital when the UN asked Nigeria to move it from the present temporary camp at the Timbuktu airport, Mali, to the more secure new UN Super Camp, also in Timbuktu.

With the completion of the permanent camp of MI­NUSMA in Timbuktu, the UN requested all its establishments to relocate to the new Super Camp.

Trouble started when, in February 2017, the ministry of defence awarded a contract for the refurbishing and relocation of the hospital to a contractor who had zero experience in in­stallation of Level 2 hospital.

The procurement was done without the initial due process of the Bureau for Public Procure­ment (BPP).

According to documents seen by The cable, the controversial contract was awarded after the MOD had received a presidential approval in the name of another contractor.

The initial approval fol­lowed a memo from the minister of defence on July 21, 2016 to President Muhammadu Buha­ri requesting fund for the re­location of the Nigerian Med­ical Level 2 Hospital “deployed to African Union MINUSMA in Mali”.

The approval was contained in a memo, dated November 9, 2016, from the president’s chief of staff to the minister of defence.

2013 has no issue. The directive by the UN to move from the temp site in in Timbuktu originated in 2016 as you can see from the bold part, approval was given same 2016 with contract awarded in 2017 and funds disbursed accordingly but corrupt thieves diverted the money and made Nigeria miss the August 2017 deadline to move to a permanent site still in Timbuktu. This is purely a dirty and corrupt Buhari affair as Jonathan bowed out peacefully on 29 May 2015.
