The Minister of Finance (MINFI) is accused of paralyzing public finances.
According to Le Quotidien L’Épervier of December 21, 2016, many service providers are unable to reclaim their funds due to a financial slump within the MINFI. Information circulates according to which, the state coffers are empty. And the state is no longer able to meet some of its commitments.
If one believes credible sources by the newspaper, Alamine Ousmane Mey would have granted a payment of 24 billion CFA francs to billionaire Baba Danpullo. “The reasons for this payment have not yet been clarified,” the paper said. Which, however, purports to analyze the MINFI’s ambitions: “Why were the payments of Billionaire Baba Danpullo’s invoices validated so fast when some economic operators and other service providers have been tripping for several months on the premises of this ministry to claim their money after service Rendered? “.
It may be important to ask why the MINFI grants payments to some people to the detriment of several others. For the daily, the pretext for financing the war against Boko Haram is perfidious. “The disinterestedness of the providers, the pay advances of the civil servants are slowed down because there is no money. But where do the billions that would have been given to the businessman come from? “Asks the paper.
The newspaper accuses the MINFI of taking advantage of its proximity to the Head of State and his family to do what he sees fit as the head of this strategic ministerial department. Because, he remains indifferent to the complaints of the users.
