The former Director of Local Government Pension Board, from 2010 to 2015, Mr. John Adie has been accused of masterminding over N8m fraud. 

Adie was accused by the Auditor-General for Local Government in Cross River State, Mr. Anthony Ayine.

In an official statement issued to refute the allegation, the former LG pension boss, said “As far as I know and from all available records, I am the only director that ever instituted reforms in the pension board. There is no fraud in the board rather I introduced a lot of reforms in the place. The kind of reforms I introduced was such that all pension files were captured in the data base and we have a website."

Adding that “Pensioners can stay anywhere and access their records. For the Auditor-General to come and say that there is fraud in pension board is something I don’t understand; he wants me to expose him.”
