Gunmen attack on EFCC is shocking, disturbing – Sagay – Nigeria Latest News Headlines

By AKANNI HAMDALAT OPEYEMI

Prof. Itse Sagay, Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), has condemned the attack at the Headquarters of the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abuja, by unknown gunmen last Wednesday.

Unknown gunmen while fleeing after the attack, left a death threat note behind.

Sagay described the attack as a shocking and disturbing development. He said: “Good God, is that so? It is a frightening development. How could gunman have courage to go to the EFCC office to shoot at them? It just shows you how desperate the looters and corrupt people are getting the courage to attack a major institution like the EFCC. “It is shocking and it shows you the enormity of the battle to tame corruption and reduce it in this country. It shows why we need people who are strong and committed to fight the battle because the faint-hearted cannot do it in this country.”

The attack, which, according to the commission, took place in the early hours of Wednesday, was, however, repelled by security operatives watching the Commission, causing serious pandemonium around Zone 7 of the FCT, where the office is located.

Group debunks N3.8b fraud allegation against Kachikwu – Nigeria Latest News Headlines

By AKANNI HAMDALAT OPEYEMI

The Conscience of the Niger (TCN), a new socio-political movement on the horizon, has reacted to a report by 10exclusive, an online news portal, accusing the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, of N3.8 billion fraud, saying the allegations were not only unfounded but the handiwork of power hawks and mischief makers, who were determined to discredit and blemish the oil minister for obvious reasons.

10exclusive had reported recently that President Muhammadu Buhari on his sick bed has been having sleepless nights over Kachikwu’s management of the ministry and that Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo’s recent visit to London was not unconnected to issues in the petroleum ministry, especially, allegations of corruption against the minister. The report also claimed that Kachikwu had been using his younger brother, Dumebi Kachikwu, as front in many deals, adding that the one that created the current crisis was a N3.8 billion allegedly collected by Dumebi in exchange for a marginal oil field in the Niger Delta waters. Against this backdrop, the news portal reported that the president had concluded plans to sack Kachikwu.

But in responding, leader of TCN, Mitai Okeroghene, said the attempt to discredit Kachikwu was an advanced and well-intended plot by some persons within the corridors of power, who had become uncomfortable with some of the feats he has recorded in the ministry despite the challenges that paved his way and were poised to making his job impossible.

Specifically reacting to some of these allegations, Okeroghene said “First, there were no marginal fields granted by Kachikwu or anyone since the Muhammadu Buhari administration came on board and as such, the allegations remain the figment of the imagination of those behind the attacks against Kachikwu.” Continuing, he contended that the power to grant marginal field resided with the minister of petroleum, in which case, the president and not the minister of state, adding that the attacks, as far as he was concerned, was a subtle attempt to discredit the president and not even Kachikwu.

“But unfortunately for them, a man of Dr. Kachikwu’s standing, who did so much to institute transparency in the oil sector and with enviable international pedigree could not succumb to such corruption rascality. So, those trying aimlessly to blemish the person and credibility of the minister need a review of strategy. “One would have expected that people, who believe in the veracity of their accusations, would rather show their faces by taking a direct report to the appropriate agencies with sufficient facts to carry out its investigation. Indeed, the whistleblowing policy of the federal government creates an incentive for this, so, why resort to blogs to blackmail the minister. “We are not unaware that all these attacks are not unconnected to the purported cabinet reshuffle and until the planned reshuffling is over, these faceless jobbers, whose whole lives revolve around corruption and blackmail, will continue to target Dr. Kachikwu for being too drastic in his resolve to salvage the oil industry,” he said. He, therefore, maintained that the “attacks on Dr. Kachikwu are the orchestrations by some powerful persons in the system and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), who are determined to see that Kachikwu is shown the way out, because they are uncomfortable with his cutting-edge reforms in the ministry.”

The women turned the scene to carnival, singing heroic songs and praising God for blessing Delta State and the Urhobo Nation, in particular, with the two great sons-of-the soil, considered the hope of light for the masses in the state. They were said to have heaped curses on the Okowa/PDP government for inflicting pains and suffering on the people of Delta State, signaling the subtle resort to the APC.

In a statement, indicated that the Nation Convention Arena Could not hold the crowd that came for the occasion, as the Three Thousand Capacity Hall was not even enough to contain those from the Delta North alone, noting that people outside the hall were more than those inside.

“It was a reunion and reunification of the heroes of democracy, as all those who have been fighting to ensure true democracy is enthroned in Delta State, all came together again.  All opposition forces across the state came together to form a common front to pull down the walls of impunity, tyranny, oppression and retrogression build by the PDP since 1999,” Ayomanor declared.

He also stated that “Since it was a gathering of all progressives and heroes of democracy across the state, under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), it became necessary to lay to rest, the old name “Light of Labour” that emanated from the then Labour Party, on which platform the Super Senator rode to the Red Chamber of the National Assembly.”

He highlighted that the sober moment came when “Labour” was to be laid to rest, adding that, it was a tough one as a motion for the dissolution of the Light of Labour was moved. “You could feel the silence in the air;, it was like a sudden chill ran down the spines of the leaders and huge audience, for about a minute, there was no response; then, came a calm and mild seconder to the motion, and the State Chairman of the Light of Labour, Evang. Ossai Abey, called for yeas  and nays to the motion, and there was a resounding and an accelerating chorusing of yeasssssssss from the mammoth crowd, in support of the dissolution of the Light of Labour Pressure Group in Delta State. And the Light of Labour, was officially and formally buried,” Ayomanor highlighted.

He narrated that after the sober moment of laying to rest the “Light of Labour” came the birth of the Mother of Democracy, the Light of APC Delta State, an umbrella body that covers all progressives across the 25 LGAs of Delta State. This was aids to have brought joy and smiles into the faces of all present, and there was jubilation all over, as the National Women Leader of the Rescue Delta 2019 Team Ogboru/Omo-Agege, Prophetess Mrs Onajite, took over the microphone and the entire audience sang praises to God Almighty for the birth of the “child of hope”, the Light of APC Delta States.

The Senator He blessed God for giving President Muhammadu Buhari to Deltans, as a gift. He said that with President Buhari, corruption and impunity will soon die a natural death; and stealing of the people’s electoral mandate is fast becoming a thing of the past.

The Senator also assured the people that his empowerment program will continue as long as the government remains; adding that the continuous continuity will ensure it gets to everybody, including the churches.

He disclosed that over 200 students in higher institutions have been enlisted for bursary under his empowerment programme. The Senator proposed a slogan for the group “winning together” this slogan was unanimously accepted by the people and they echoed it repeatedly till it sank into everyone’s inner man.

The leaders agreed that, it was very important to set up some Steering Committees that would be directly responsible for certain operations of the group. Though it was agreed that such committees would be set up at a later date, the leaders also found it expedient to announce the name of the Chairman of the Media and Communications Committee, which is expected to spring into action immediately, while the members and all other committees will be constituted on a later date by the leaders.
