N62.3b NSITF fraud: Suspects offer minister $4m bribe to stop probe

Determined to stop the ongoing probe of a fraud in the Nigerian Social Insurance Trust Fund(NSITF), some suspects have offered the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, a $4m bribe.

The bribe was to be paid in two tranches, but the minister, who rejected the offer, has vowed to ensure the ongoing cleansing of the NSITF.

He said in one day alone about N5billion was withdrawn from the NSITF’s account under questionable circumstances.

Some labour leaders have been implicated in the NSITF fraud.
