(As Presidential Panel on Asset Recovery Rates Corporation High On Accountability, Transparency)
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC has cleared the air on alleged financial breaches in its operations by the Special Presidential Investigative Panel for the Recovery of Public Property.
Speaking while receiving the Chairman and members of the Panel at the NNPC Towers on Monday, Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Mallam Mele Kyari, said the Corporation had nothing to hide as it stood to gain a lot by being transparent in all areas of operation.
The Nigerian Government headed by Retired Major Gen Muhammadu Buhari and Prof Yemi Osinbajo as his Vice is dangerously licensing Nigerians to take up arms and go into intractable terror-insurgency capable of turning the country into Somalia or situation worse than same. The Government, as a matter of fact, is dangerously injecting Nigerians with toxins of genocide and destruction.
Using the laws of karma, the present Government of Nigeria appears to be operating as if it is a cursed regime being haunted by its past misdeeds particularly the framing up and slaying of thousands of unarmed and defenseless citizens as it is generationally damning to kill an innocent soul, not to talk of killing thousands with impunity. The latest court-declared proscription and tagging of Shiite Muslims in Nigeria as “terrorist group” is hereby condemned in strongest and unreserved terms.
.......as N29b likely pocketed in two months by Govs over failure to form their cabinets since May 29
The appointment of 33 political aides including six media aides by the Speaker of House of Reps (Green Chambers), Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, is nothing short of formation of ‘a State Executive Council in the Green Chambers’. It is also a clear case of legislative squander-mania, fiscal profligacy and rapacious abuse of public office.

"I am constrained to write to you this open letter. I decided to make it an open letter because the issue is very weighty and must be greatly worrisome to all concerned Nigerians and that means all right-thinking Nigerians and those resident in Nigeria. Since the issue is of momentous concern to all well-meaning and all right-thinking Nigerians, it must be of great concern to you, and collective thinking and dialoguing is the best way of finding an appropriate and adequate solution to the problem. The contents of this letter, therefore, should be available to all those who can help in proffering effective solutions for the problem of insecurity in the land.
After critical and thorough deliberation on the state of the Nigerian Federation vis-à-vis the rapidly unfolding state of affairs in Alaigbo today, and doing all these in the light of the Mission ADF, the ADF Congress resolves as follows:
That the Igbo nation and her neighbours in Nigeria have degenerated into the status of occupied territories, arising from Nigeria’s false monolithic federalism and the conduct of the affairs of the Federation from a central Government controlled by one ethnic nationality, where political, economic, judicial and electoral rights of the Igbo Nation have been completely eroded and undermined. ADF, therefore, re-iterates its position that the only way to save Nigeria from imminent disintegration is to re-negotiate her possible continued existence as a political entity in conformity with the principles of self-determination, allowing each nationality freedom to control and pursue her political, economic and socio-cultural affairs and development as an Autonomous Region, and above all the fundamental right to decide whether to stay or opt out of such Federal arrangement.

On June 17, 2019 a Nigerian man identified as Jeffrey Ewohime allegedly destroyed seven cars and property at the Nigerian High Commission in London over a delay in releasing his passport to him by officials of the Nigerian High Commission. Responding to the situation, the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), the institution saddled with the responsibility of issuance of international passports, took to its Twitter handle @nigimmigration to display an already issued International Passport in the name of the alleged vandal and tweeted that the High Commission had already closed for the day at the time the man arrived to pick up his passport at the High Commission, and further that he did not have the required Collection Slip on him. Many things could have angered the man in question, but nothing would justify the criminal damage he allegedly perpetrated in law.
