Arewa Leader Tasks FG To Publish Names Involved In NDDC Contracts Fraud

By Sola Adeyemi

The Arewa leader in Southern Nigeria, Alhaji Musa Saidu has tasked the Federal government to make public names of contractors found wanting in the recently concluded Forensic Audit of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC.

Saidu also called for constitution of the board for the commission,   adding that publishing the names will serve as deterrent  to others that may want to divert government’s funds released for projects across the country.

He went on to say that the government should ensure that those found wanting are also prosecuted for their actions against development in the Niger Delta region.

“They  should publish the names of all found wanting in the audit. They should also constitute the board.  Now that the forensic audit has been concluded the next thing should be to constitute the board. “, he said.

“The people should also know those that abandoned projects in the region after they have been paid,” he said.

“We know many people in government are involved . And also many claiming to be activists are involved. Traditional rulers may also be involved .If President Buhari is fighting corruption then he should take steps to make public the names of those found wanting in the contract scam”,he said.

The Arewa leader also enjoined northern leaders that visited governor Nyesom Wike,  to help  northerners in the state appeal to the governor to protect their businesses since they have what he called “easy access to the governor.”

He said he had tried to reach the governor with some other northern leaders in the state to discuss some of the challenges northerners were currently facing doing business in the state under his (governor Wike) administration but they had not been granted audience.
