Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to commence a full investigation into the alleged misappropriated Global Fund grants received by Nigeria for HIV/AIDS and TB.
The President also directed his Secretary to the Government of Federation to review the Office of Inspector General's audit report which indicted the misappropriation of funds by three Federal agencies.

These actions are in line with an earlier statement by the president where he promised to fight corruption to a standstill. Nigeria has a crippling culture of corruption, that always raises it's ugly head with the formation of new democracies.
Buhari then made a point in assuring the international community that all funds received would be utilised and distributed fairly.
