Investigation revealed that the increased SR180 did not in anyway reflect on the transport fare. The money was left in the account of NAHCON as excess cash. Thereby amounting to SR17,100,000:00) (Seventeen Million One Hundred Thousand Saudi Riyals) which was rated to N2,308,5000:00 (Two Billion, three hundred and eight million, five hundred thousand Naira).
