I Can Track Down Subsidy Thieves in One Week – Ribadu

Published

on

Former EFCC boss, Nuhu, Ribadu, has said that he can get the fuel subsidy thieves in one week. He was speaking as a guest at the Visitor’s Forum organised by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission.

Ribadu, who currently chairs the Special Petroleum Revenue Task Force constituted by the Federal Government, stressed that failure of regulatory agencies in the petroleum industry led to the monumental fraud in the administration of the subsidy regime. And, he believes that if the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency had done its job, “…the whole subsidy mess would not have happened. If I were to handle this subsidy thing, I will just go after the PPPRA, especially those who were at the helm when all these mess took place.”

Ribadu continues: “In one week, I will bring out every single person who took one penny. I will not bother myself with anybody else; I will just get them because nobody would make a penny out of the subsidy regime without the direct complicity of the PPPRA.”

The various moves to track down the fuel subsidy thieves are taking unnecessarily long time to yield any fruits. numerous committees were set up; the Senate has its own, the House of Representatives have theirs – which has yielded more of drama rather that results in recent times – and just last week, the president set up another panel! This, Dr. Okonjo-Iweala has said, will come up with the final solution to the fuel subsidy fraud issues.

    The Commission needs some body like Nuhu Ribadu. And its the must powerful law Nigeria ever enacted into law in order to curb curroption completly in the government system. Section 2(1)a- of the Fiscal Responsibility Act,2007, empowers the Commission to compel any person or government institution to disclose information relating to public revenues and expenditures; and (b) cause an investigation into whether any person has violated the provisions of the Act. So thsts where curroption can be eliminated completly in Nigeria,and Fiscal Responsibility Commission is among the must important laws that the country ever enacted, but isn’t being followed

    I don’t know exactly what Alhaji Ribadu is talking about but the less noise he makes, the betterhis chances of exposing his overconfidence and foolishness. Reason; what was he able to do during President Obasanjo’s time? There are many ways to seek notice without saying exactly what you want. What does he really want?

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
