This request follows her failure to honour an invitation from the EFCC. Following the invitation, Umar-Farouq sent a letter to the anti-corruption agency, pleading for more time.

The Human and Environmental Development Agenda (HEDA Resource Centre), an anti-corruption group, has urged the Nigerian Government and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to conduct a thorough investigation into the actions of a former Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, Sadiya Umar-Farouq. 

This request follows her failure to honour an invitation from the EFCC. Following the invitation, Umar-Farouq sent a letter to the anti-corruption agency, pleading for more time.

She said she had some health challenges.

"In addition, an independent investigation and available information revealed that the so-called modified and implemented school feeding programme during the lockdown against the coronavirus pandemic was a scam, cover-up and well-articulated fiction to embezzle public funds."

HEDA calls on the current administration led by President Tinubu to not only investigate and suspend corrupt appointees and staff but also review the activities of the agency. 

This, HEDA believes, is essential for realising the administration's Renew Hope Agenda and ensuring the agency operates with integrity and transparency.
