The President said the suspension was in line with his avowed commitment to uphold the highest standards of integrity, transparency, and accountability in the management of the commonwealth of Nigerians.

Shortly after her suspension, EFCC summoned Edu to its headquarters in the Jabi area of Abuja, the nation’s capital.

An operative of the EFCC had told Daily Trust that the EFCC had earlier recommended the suspension of the minister to pave the way for the ongoing investigation that the President had ordered.
