Order publication of list of lawmakers involved NDDC contract scam, CNPP tells Buhari

Global day of prayer with Rev Chris Oyakhilome

The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties, CNPP has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to order the immediate publication of the list of all members of the National Assembly and any other Nigerian involved in the contract scam in the Niger Delta Development Commission.

The CNPP urged the Interim Management Committee of the NDDC to “never to be cowed by the National Assembly, which has never been conclusive in any probe.”

In an announcement gave on Monday by its Secretary General, Chief Willy Ezugwu, while responding to media report credited to the Executive Director accountable for Projects at the NDDC, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, who asserted that if the rundown of those engaged with plundering the commission is delivered, the nation will break, the CNPP demanded for the arrest and prosecution of those involved in the contract scam.

It said: “The CNPP has been in series of consultations with critical civil society stakeholders to take a position on the ongoing probe of the NDDC.

“However, it became imperative to call on President Muhammadu Buhari to take seriously the allegation that some members of the National Assembly are plotting to stall the forensic audit ordered by himself.

“It is cheering news to hear that the new NDDC Interim Management Committee, IMC, has resolved to ensure the conclusion of the forensic audit despite the alleged efforts of the National Assembly to muzzle the IMC and frustrate the exercise.

“Having concluded the first leg of the audit the nation await the second and final leg. But, before then, we urge President Buhari to order the immediate publication of the list of all members of the National Assembly, and any other Nigerian who have been involved in contract scam at the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC.

“Until this is done to put an end to the ongoing cat and mouse game between the National Assembly and the NDDC management, the world will continue to laugh at the mention of anti-corruption war in Nigeria.”60
