President Muhammadu Buhari, has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to return a whopping sum of N10 Billion, seized from the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission, NBC, a regulatory body under the Ministry of Information and Culture.
The Director General, DG, of the NBC, Is’haq Modibbo-Kawu, who disclosed this at a news conference, in Abuja, on Thursday, said the President gave the directive.
The directive was given before the President departed to Germany, on Thursday.
The money was seized by the EFCC, during the tenure of the former DG, NBC, Emeka Mba.

Modibbo-Kawu, said the money was still in the custody of the anti-graft agency, but that President Buhari had ordered that it be released to the Commission.
He said the EFCC, was expected to give further details on the release process in due course, as directed by the President.
Recall, that Mba, Basil Udotai, and his company, Technology Advisor LLP, were accused along with others, by the EFCC, of having a hand in an alleged diversion of N10 billion, from the N34 billion, paid by MTN to the NBC.
The amount was part of the money meant for digital television broadcasting in the country.

EFCC, had also alleged that the money was transferred to a bank, in breach of Federal Government’s directive on the Treasury Single Account, TSA.
Although, the EFCC said it had recovered the N10 billion from those who took it, Mba and Udotai denied ever taking part in the diversion of the money.
They insisted that no such money was ever taken by them, or those who participated in the digital switch process.
The denials were contained in two separate letters, written on their behalf by their Lawyer, Ogwu Onoja (SAN).
In the letters, Mba made it clear that the entire transaction was transparent, and carried out in accordance with the approval granted to the NBC, by former President, Goodluck Jonathan, and the Federal Executive Council, FEC.
Their Lawyer, maintained that no money was missing throughout Mba’s tenure as DG of NBC, and that he was proud of his post as an outstanding public servant, with over 25 years of experience in the communications and entertainment industry.
The Lawyer said: “The truth is that during the tenure of our client as the DG of the NBC, no money was missing, lost, or stolen, by anyone at the NBC.
“The NBC in all its transactions followed due processes and got appropriate approvals from its Board of Directors, the then Minister of Information, former Minister of Communications Technology, and President Goodluck Jonathan.”
