A damning exposé has revealed a web of corruption and nepotism within the Ministry of Art, Culture, and Creative Economy, sparking widespread outrage and calls for accountability.

At the center of the scandal is Minister Hannatu Musa Musawa, who has been accused of allocating N3.7 billion for research and development in the 2024 budget, with a significant portion earmarked for projects in her hometown of Musawa, Katsina State, and Bichi, Kano State, where her relatives reside.

Critics have slammed the ministry for prioritizing dubious research initiatives over more pressing national concerns, such as infrastructure development and poverty alleviation.

Furthermore, the minister has been accused of abusing her position by inserting projects unrelated to her ministry’s mandate, including road construction and street light installation, into the budget.

The scandal has raised questions about the government’s commitment to transparency and accountability, with many Nigerians demanding a thorough investigation and consequences for those involved.

As the controversy continues to unfold, the Ministry of Art, Culture, and Creative Economy faces mounting pressure to explain its actions and justify the allocation of public funds for seemingly personal projects.
