Speaking on their suspension, Olanrewaju said “The indefinite suspension is connected to some discoveries of alleged fraud in the parastatal by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). This is in line with the efforts of the AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq administration to cleanse the system, particularly at SUBEB where some startling discoveries have been made.

He further explained that “Salaries (and accounts) connected to the controversial names on the payroll have been flagged and suspended until the end of the exercise.”
