The former governor who steers the affairs of Kwara State for an uninterrupted two-term of eight years (2011-2019), and before becoming the governor was the commissioner for Finance during Bukola Saraki stint as the governor, was reported by channels television to be questioned for over seven hours by the operatives of the EFCC at the headquarters. Having obeyed the invitation by the EFCC, Ahmed went into the anti-graft agency headquarter at Jabi, Abuja at about 10 a.m Monday.

Alhaji Ahmed has always coorporate with the agency in it’s investigation and will continue to as a law abiding citizen”
Also as a confirmation, a spokesman for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren said that the former governor responded to the commission’s invitation.
