Chinelo-Anohu Amazu, former director-general of the National Pension Commission (PenCom), is eager to appear before the joint committee on procurement to set the records straight on procurement under her tenure, according to Naij Live TV.

This is even as several companies invited to the public hearing and PenCom have lampooned the timing and alleged selectiveness in the invitation to hearing as advertised in some national dailies, alleging cover-ups.

They also faulted a situation where Wole Oke, chairman of the house of representatives committee on procurement,  “who was publicly accused by the former chairman of a house of reps committee, will sit over another probe.

The website quoted a source close to Anohu-Amazu, as saying: “The former DG was overseas when she was informed of a publication on Thursday indicating that there would be a public hearing on Monday over procurement under her tenure as DG. She quickly cut short her trip and returned to the country at the weekend to make sure she appeared before the House to set the records straight.

“It is public knowledge that her tenure as DG has been hailed by both and international stakeholders as a brilliant one underscored by due process, transparency, and accountability.”

However, a director in one of the invited firms was said to have alleged cover-up and diversionary tactics between Oke and Aisha Dahir-Umar, acting DG of PenCom.

A director in another company said he preferred to read out the company’s written memoranda at the hearing instead, wondered why the “so-called” investigation was coming one whole year after the house resolution.

On his part, a mid-career staff of PenCom described the probe as “hogwash, selective, and diversionary”
