Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Chief Olabode George, has reacted to the allegations of money laundering, fraud and tax evasion against Alpha Beta Consulting.
The firm has exclusive right to collect taxes on behalf of Lagos State Government since 2002.
Commenting on the matter, the former PDP Deputy National Chairman, said he hopes the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) would get to the root of the matter.
George told Thisday that it was unfortunate that “those who called others thieves were the biggest criminals of all time”.
“I hope the EFCC will have the nerve to unravel it. It will be the biggest scandal that Nigeria has ever seen. It is mind-boggling and heart-breaking.
“All of them who had shared of the rot must be exposed. It will redeem the credibility of the EFCC.
“But first, they must shut the place down and a law enacted that no one must collect revenue on behalf of the state again and everyone involved must be exposed,” George stated.
