Corruption: FG Compiles List Of Legislators For Probe Over 2014, 2015 Constituency Projects

The Federal Government has started compiling the list of legislators in both chambers of the National Assembly over constituency projects earmarked for them in the 2014 and 2015 budgets, which were not executed.

The sum of N100bn was earmarked for constituency projects in each of the 2014 and 2015 budgets.

The worth of constituency projects totalled N200bn for the two years.

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN), told one of our correspondents on Sunday that the compilation was being done by the police, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission.

Though he declined to give details “in order not to pre-empt investigation,” the AGF said the funds, the names of legislators and the constituency projects that were not executed would be made public after investigation.

He said his office and the law enforcement agencies had received complaints of how payments were made for constituency projects that were never executed.

He said, “The money for constituency projects had been taken, but certain allegations prevailed that some constituency projects were not executed after the money had been paid 100 per cent.

“If money is appropriated in the budget, paid and the projects the funds were meant for were not executed, it is only natural to take steps to find out what happened. If neither the money nor the project can be produced, then you must take steps in accordance with the law.

“There are cases that are specific; we are compiling them. I will not want to pre-empt investigation, we have to allow investigation to be concluded before we go public.”

When asked which of EFCC or ICPC was involved in probing the constituency project fraud, the minister responded, “including the police”.

One of our correspondents learnt that the AGF had received petitions against many of the federal legislators, including a former Chairman, House Committee on Appropriation, Mr. Abdulmumin Jibrin.

Jibrin had also petitioned the EFCC, ICPC, the police and the Department of State Services, alleging that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, and three other principal officers had requested the inclusion of N40bn projects in the 2016 budget, besides other projects in sums ranging from N20bn to N30bn.

The police are currently investigating Jibrin’s allegations

‘Maina Not On EFCC’s Wanted List’ – Associate

The erstwhile Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT) Abdulrasheed Maina, is not wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

One of his associates, Barrister Olajide Oloye, in a statement issued in Abuja, yesterday, said “Our attention has been drawn to some publications with the above title featuring Alhaji Abdulrasheed Maina, chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT) as being wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged pension fraud.

“We would have ignored the biased, unresearched and unfounded report but for the pain it has caused Maina, his friends, business associates and family members, we decided to set the records straight.

“It is instructive to state that we shall not hesitate to take the sure, slow but assured law of legal redress against media houses that publish materials that have no grounds of authority against our persons as members of the PRTT and our official conducts which we did in the best interest of this nation while the thieves that contrived against us are made to look like saints and we who caught the thieves are made to look like villains.

“The facts: One, Abdulrasheed Maina is not wanted by the EFCC or any anti-graft agency in the country”.

Continuing, Oloye said, “Secondly, and very important too, the reference to Maina being joined in any suit with the ex-head of service, Mr. Steve Orosanye, who he has so much respect for, is a calculated attempt to hide the truth. You, as journalists, owe this nation a duty to investigate and deliver behind-the-scene developments and criminal actions of people who hold public offices.

On the Orosanye suit, Mr. Maina has repeatedly said he is ready to defend himself given the enabling environment. If you are familiar with the matter, you would recall that his counsel, Ms. Esther Uzoma Esq, had made a statement in that regard.

“The EFCC should come clean on the matter of my client, Dr. Abdulrasheed Maina. When I appeared before His Lordship, Justice Kolawole on July 21, I made it clear that the EFCC was yet to file any charge as well as serve any summons on Dr. Maina.”

“It is trite law that you cannot say an accused is on the run when there is no charge preferred against him or any invitation extended to him.

“During the hearing for the bail application, counsel to the EFCC, Mr. Rotimi Jacobs SAN, wanted the court to direct me to produce Maina in court at the next sitting which I argued that there are clear procedures, which the EFCC is familiar with and should follow.

“Naturally, the court agreed with my submission on the position of law. Therefore, it is misleading for the EFCC in its statement of Monday to mislead the public that there exists an order for Maina to be produced in court when there is no invitation extended to him talk-less of a charge preferred against him by the commission.”

It may interest your newspaper to note that even Maina’s main accuser, Senator Kabiru Gaya, told The Sun newspaper of 12th April, 2016 that he (Gaya) lied against Maina and the Pension Reform Task Team.

These are his very words: “You remember I was a member of the 6th and 7th Senate and I am still a member of the 8th National Assembly. During the 7th Senate, we were able to do a probe of the pension scam. I was a co-chair of that committee. During that investigation, we were able to discover N195 billion stocked in accounts of various Departments, Agencies and Ministries (MDAs) for pension and they were not using those monies. These are kinds of money that form part of the TSA and it is a welcome idea. It is an excellent idea. Now, we can use money we have to achieve what we want.”

  • Increasing crude oil production by the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company, NPDC, while reviewing all weak contractual agreements and terminate bad ones as appropriate.
  • Leveraging on equity positions to cause the development of key gas assets for both domestic and export.
  • Pursuing the expansion of gas network across the country, as well as repairing and restoring oil and gas pipeline infrastructure.
  • Providing robust security system for both detection and deterrent in conjunction with the existing security arrangement.
  • Improve refining efficiency of the four existing refineries to pave the way for future expansion.
  • Pursue diversification of businesses by refocusing on the implementation of renewable energy programmes and frontier exploration services.
  • Continue with the drive to make the venture businesses profitable and ensure service delivery, entrench the culture of professionalism by doing the right things at all times through transparency, accountability, and respect for all, ensure adequate staff welfare and motivation, training and capacity building.


Ibe Kachikwu, the outgoing GMD, listed his achievements at the corporation, stating that his administration brought NNPC from loss to profit.

“Eleven months ago when Mr. President asked me to take over the mantle of leadership of GMD, there was indeed an urgency of now, morale was low, there was a lot of issues of transparency on the table, profit index was very poor,” he said.

“Looking back now, one must be very grateful to the president not just for the opportunity but for the foresight.”

He stated his achievements as follows:

  • Sanitization of the fuel supply and distribution matrix due to the introduction of the downstream liberalization regime.
  • Reduced upstream contracting period to nine months from initial upwards of two years.
  • Redirection of the NNPC on the path of profitability as witnessed in the May 2016 NNPC Monthly financial report which posted a profit of N274 million.
  • Prompt remittance of oil proceeds to the federation accounts.
  • Monthly publication of NNPC Financial reports.
  • Review of old models contracts like crude SWAP which saved the Corporation a whopping $1Billion annually.
  • Recently secured $80 billion MoU with Chinese investors.
