Isoko Youth To FG, We Will Resist Any Attempt To Pull Down Kachukwu

BY Roland Danjuma
OLEH—ISOKO National Youth Assembly, INYA, yesterday, told the Federal Government to allow a fair investigation into allegations of corruption in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, warning that any attempt to pull down the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachukwu, will be met with vehement resistance by youths of the region.

INYA frowned at the leak of the official memo from “The Minister of Petroleum to the President.” While condemning the intent of those behind the leak of such an official correspondence, he said: “We are not surprised at the content of the memo as it only affirms our earlier position that the appointments recently carried out by the NNPC was self serving, scabrous and done without regard to the principle of fairness, equity and federal character. “No reasonable man will require a leaked memo to conclude that the appointment was a product of undemocratic process and without recourse to established protocols.

The surprise however, is the loud silence and inaction of the President in correcting this anomaly. “We commend the Senate for setting up an investigative committee on this matter and hope that the overall outcome will be to correct the lopsided appointments and uphold the tenets of federal character as was the intents of our founding fathers when it was enshrined in our constitution. “It worrisome that the government which has used ‘anti-corruption’ as its slogan had failed to rid its cabinet and government of corrupt individuals.

We are greatly disturbed at the humongous sum of contract that was awarded without recourse to due process. “The President should allow for a fair investigation of the allegations of corruption in NNPC and the entire oil sector as unearthed by the letter from Kachikwu and also immediately disclose the content of the report submitted by the Vice President, Professor Osibanjo on the allegations leveled against the SGF and the Director of the NIA.”
