N14.3BN SCAM:CACOL BACKS SENATE ON ITS CALL FOR REFUND AND PROSECUTION OF OKECHUKWU ENELEMAH

The Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership, CACOL, has given its support to the directive of the Nigerian Senate to the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Okechukwu Enelemah and the acting Managing Director of Nigeria Export Processing Zones Authority (NEPZA) Terhemba Nongo, to return N14.3bn (Fourteen Billion, Three Hundred Million Naira) to the coffers of the Federal Government.

In a press release issued by CACOL’s Coordinator for Media and Publications, Adegboyega Otunuga on behalf of the Anti-graft organization, Mr. Debo Adeniran, he remarked, “The Senate has just made a revelation to the effect that over N13bn Naira was diverted from the 2017 budget of NEPZA. The directive was contained in a letter written by the Chairman of Senate Committee on Trade and Investment, Mohammed Sabo representing Jigawa South West. This money was allegedly transferred from NEPZA’s account domiciled with the country’s Central Bank (CBN) to a private firm’s account. The senator revealed some of the actions taken to prevent this fraud, including writing a letter, through his committee to the CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele, not to release the money that, unfortunately was released in contrast to the advice from the Senate.  

“According to the letter written by the Senate committee to the CBN Governor, the said money was transferred from NEPZA’s account to the account of Nigeria Economic Zone Company, NEZC, contrary to relevant constitutional provisions (1999 as amended) which are contained under Section 80(2)(3 and (4) and Financial Regulation, sections 313 and 314 as well as relevant Senate Standing Order. Though, the Senate gave a stipulated timeframe within which this order must be obeyed, failure of which it intends to apply its legislative sanctions against the Ministry and concerned company, CACOL as an anti-corruption organization with total disdain for any corruptive acts, especially by government officials directly or through proxies, agencies or their representatives, believe that these allegations and the amount involved is weighty enough to attract the interest and intervention of relevant anti-graft agencies in the country, with a view to investigating and redressing these anomalies, where relevant.”

The CACOL Boss added, “Considering the monumental woes and destruction corruption has wreaked on Nigeria till date, no stone should be left unturned in beaming our searchlight wherever the scourge bares its pangs, irrespective of whosoever is involved. This is why we are using this medium to call on the two anti-graft agencies, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) to, as a matter of urgency and national interest, wade in and bring whosoever is culpable to book without much ado so as to serve as a deterrent.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
    of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    it very troublesome to tell the truth then again I’ll definitely come back again.

    I believe everything said made a ton of sense. But, consider this, suppose you were
    to create a awesome post title? I ain’t saying your
    information isn’t good, but what if you added a post title that grabbed a person’s attention? I
    mean N14.3BN SCAM:CACOL BACKS SENATE ON ITS CALL FOR REFUND AND PROSECUTION OF OKECHUKWU ENELEMAH – Newsnowonline is kinda plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article headlines to grab viewers to click.
    You might add a video or a picture or two
    to grab people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit
    more interesting.

    Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so
    I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
