The SFAFP Chairman, Iliyasu Gashinbaki also revealed that 25 per cent of annual budgets are diverted through bad schemes by politicians.

The Society for Forensic Accountants and Fraud Prevention (SFAFP), a body that studies the management of funds by Government agencies, has revealed that Nigeria loses N2.5 trillion  yearly in the national budget to public sector fraud and corruption.

SFAFP Chairman Iliyasu Gashinbaki, revealed that in Africa, 25 per cent of annual budgets of countries are diverted through bad schemes by politicians.

Gashinbaki, speaking at a virtual induction of 192 associates of SFAFP at the weekend, revealed public officers mismanaged government money by unlawful use of public assets for private advances, underpayment of taxes and duties on export as well as import.

Other methods of embezzlement include payment of salary to ghost workers; bribery and extortion; payment for air supply (goods or services not provided or rendered); over and under-invoicing; fraudulent court awards of financial compensations above damage suffered.
