The Nigerian Minister of Women Affairs, Uju Kennedy-Ohanenye, has issued a stern warning to the United Nations (UN), stating her intention to take legal action over alleged financial mismanagement.
Addressing the media at a press conference in Abuja on Monday, October 16, Minister Kennedy-Ohanenye claimed that the UN had been receiving funds from donors on behalf of Nigerians but had failed to provide a transparent account of how these funds have been utilized.
“I stand here as the minister of women affairs to demand from all the UN of the account of all the monies they sourced from donors in Nigeria’s name. We want to see the account of what they did.
If you don’t give us this account, at least let Nigerians see what’s going on, then you [UN] apologize to them. If we don’t get that report between now and November 15, we’re heading to court,” she said.
