The ex-commissioner, who was a guest on Channels Television’s breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, said he wondered why despite many reports from sundry committees, the Nuhu Ribadu report should be enmeshed in controversy.

Mr Adesua further said he wondered why the report was leaked before it was handed over to the Federal Government, insisting that it could be because the panel intended to hide some information from the public.
