Nigeria anti-corruption group petitions OPEC, demands removal of Alison-Madueke as Alternate President

Minister Of Petroleum Resources, Deziani Alison-Madueke

“…She has revelled in several controversies bothering on integrity, transparency and accountability.”

The Secretary-General

Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)

Helferstorferstrasse 17

A-1010

Vienna, Austria.

Dear Sir,

DEMAND FOR THE REMOVAL OF MS. ALISON MADUEKE AS ALTERNATE PRESIDENT OF OPEC

Civil Society Network Against Corruption (CSNAC) is a coalition of over 150 Anti-Corruption organizations whose primary aim is to constructively combat corruption vigorously and to ensure the effective monitoring of the various anti-graft agencies in its activities in the fight against corruption and to enthrone transparency, accountability, probity, and total commitment in the fight to eradicate corruption in Nigeria.

Reports by various newspapers on December 9th, 2013 relayed the emergence of current Nigerian Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, as the Alternate President of OPEC in outcomes of an election conducted at the 164th meeting of the OPEC conference in Vienna, Austria on December 4, 2013.

This information elicited mixed reaction from well-meaning Nigerians. Naturally, providing opportunities for Nigerians to showcase their talent and prowess at international fora is greeted with enthusiasm by the populace. And the performances of Nigerians at regional and international platforms are clear testimonies of inherent but untapped capacity to deliver with competitive excellence. In this particular case of Mrs. Alison-Madueke, based on her performance and reputation in the Nigerian Petroleum Industry, it is feared that her occupation of higher position of influence might not only be detrimental to Nigeria’s image but injurious to overall OPEC operations and reputation. Nigerians still leave with the stigma of cash-for-vote international scandal that trailed the membership of Amos Adamu as FIFA executive.

Mrs. Alison-Madueke has served in different capacities as an appointed public office holder in Nigeria. She became in July 26, 2007 the Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, later moved to Mines and Steel Development in 2008 to serve in the same capacity, and in April 2010, was appointed Minister of Petroleum Resources.

From the outset of her appointment as a minister in 2007, she has revelled in several controversies bothering on integrity, transparency and accountability. Mrs. Alison-Madueke deceived her employers when she backdated her year of graduation from Howard University from 1992 to 1987 to connote she had required work experience in order to gain employment with Shell. She equally misled the Senate and the Nation during her ministerial appointment with the same forgery. It was a fraudulent representation, a criminal offence punishable by law. An NNPC official said at the time of her appointment that, “What she has done is perjury. It is criminal and punishable by law and such a person is not fit to hold public office”. Mrs. Madueke has successfully used her closeness to the President and corridors of power to evade prosecution based on this crime.

As much as we are glad that a Nigerian Minister got elected to such esteemed position, we are not comfortable with Mrs. Alison-Madueke as such occupant. Too many questions have remained unanswered and monumental corruption has shrouded every office she ever held till date. Some of her unresolved allegations trailing her discharge of duties since becoming a minister in 2007 includes:

  1. 247ureport.com reported that as a Minister of Transportation, she paid N30.9billion to contractors to rehabilitate the deplorable Benin-Shagamu expressway between 26 and 31 December of year 2007 and the road has remained in the same deplorable state till date.
  2. It was also published on SaharaReporters of August 31, 2012 that the Senate, in October 2009, probed the questionable spending of N300 billion in the transport sector; Alison-Madueke was the only serving minister among five former ministers of state and four permanent secretaries indicted and recommended for prosecution. Vanguard newspapers reported she allegedly transferred N1.2 billion into the private account of a toll company without due process and in breach of concession agreement.
  3. As the minister of mines and steel development, PremiumTimesng reported that through investigations carried out by the defunct NEXT newspaper, her under-arm dealings with a US-based jeweller, Chris Aire, who out of the blues subverted due process to register and gain approval for his two briefcase companies to lift Nigeria’s sweet crude was brought to lime light.
  4. A more serious allegation in 2010 was the KPMG report on the “process and forensic review” of NNPC which opened a Pandora’s Box of stunning verdict on every aspect of the oil industry. The report provided ample insight into the endemic corruption in Nigeria’s petroleum process. From unauthorized violation of OPEC oil quota for Nigeria, to outright falsification of the exchange rates used for defraying government oil revenue, to barefaced exploitation of the subsidy regime, the report is clear and unequivocal in its observations and conclusions. It not only highlighted how rotten the industry is but it also clearly indicted officials and departments found to be involved in monumental corruption. Although names were not mentioned in the report, a detailed analysis of the document by PremiumTimesng, published on their website on February 01, 2012, threw up at least 20 government officials and businesspersons who have questions to answer as far as the audit was concerned. Most of the corrupt practices identified by the audit festered even under Mrs. Alison-Madueke’s leadership of the petroleum resources ministry. The question posed to her which remained unanswered is the allegation that she ordered the Petroleum Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) to shake down marketers shortly before the 2011 general election, to purportedly raise funds for the president’s campaign.
  5. Vanguard newspaper on August 02, 2012 related the story that an alleged contract scam to the tune of N1.1 billion involving the supply of a Dive Support Sea-Going Vessel was uncovered at the Federal Government owned Petroleum Training Institute, PTI, Effurun in Delta State, under Ms. Madueke.Vanguard gathered that the Federal Government awarded a contract of N1,117,330,873.31 inclusive of VAT to a Lagos-based company in 2009 to supply the vessel in six months, but three and a half years after the contract was supposed to have been executed, none has been supplied, whereas the entire contract sum of N1.1 billion had been fully paid to the contractor. Till date, there has been no evidence to show that the Dive Support Sea-Going Vessel is supplied as contracted.
  6. On August 19, 2013, SaharaReporters published the petition written to Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) by Crusader for Good Governance, demanding the investigation of Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke for squandering millions of dollars of public funds to rent private jets for the conduct of her official activities. In the petition, the group demanded that Ms. Allison-Madueke be investigated for her habitual extravagant spending of huge sums to rent private jets for her official and private trips.

The Petition, signed by the Okechukwu Obiora Nnamdi, detailed that she has spent some N2 billion on private jet rentals. It was alleged that Mrs. Allison-Madueke not only uses private jets for trips outside the country, she also constantly use helicopters whenever in Lagos, the minister relies on Caverton, a Lagos-based helicopter rental company, to provide choppers that ferry her as well as her family around Lagos.

The aforementioned are tips of the iceberg in the minister’s breach of trust and violation of operational principles which have been brought to limelight; and this is not to mention of those which have been deeply buried with all evidences concealed or destroyed.

Therefore, with her abysmal performance in different offices at the national level, Mrs. Diezani Alison- Madueke is unfit and undeserving of that international position and should not be allowed to pollute the integrity OPEC in her position as the alternate president of OPEC. The Nigerian roads were in the same state she met them, as at the time of redeployment as Transport Minister. With her stint at Mines and Steels Development Ministry, Mines and Steels development witnessed no remarkable development whatsoever under her. And presently, the Petroleum Resources Ministry is swathed and immersed in enormous corruption; stories involving fraud across different agencies of the ministry is the everyday news. Yet, nothing concrete has been done to mitigate these fraudulent activities. Several local and international reports indicted the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation as the most “Opaque” oil parastatal in the world.

At several times, Nigerians have called for the removal or resignation of Ms. Madueke, if indeed a person of honour but all cries have fallen on deaf ears. Our President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan is perceived to have a soft spot for the lady and a few others with penchant for corruption. It is clear nothing can happen to her under this dispensation.

We understand that understand the current regime, justice is not being appropriated in our country but we have a resolute belief in the ability of the international community to ensure sanity and sanctity in actions and operations at that level. Allowing Mrs. Alison Madueke to function in such position will only broaden her circle of perpetual corruption and lack of transparency. Hence, we are demanding that Mrs. Alison Madueke be removed immediately as alternate president of OPEC before she causes Nigeria another monumental embarrassment which will indelibly leave our tails behind our legs. Like another close friend of the President, Amos Adamu, did as an executive of FIFA. In the alternative, OPEC should suspend her from office, pending the outcome of a high level international investigation, to be commissioned by the OPEC, to verify allegations contained in this petition.

We thank you for your anticipated investigation and prompt action in this matter.

Sincerely,

Adeola Abodurin

Programmes Manager

    Nigeria!!!!

    • ANGR

      My Broda!

      You don talk am finish. Nigeria! I read these things and I am left speechless. Perhaps our speechlessness needs to be replaced with a REVOLUTION!

  • growthengine

    Haters

    • Haaters of Corruption

      HATERS OF CORRUPTION

      • growthengine

        Get the PIB Passed, and all these corruption that has been taking place since over 40 years now will dry up. Abandon the Subsidy too. Nigerians too are corrupt for accepting to buy a product cheaper than it costs to produce, which is a typical African mentality.

        • growthtransparency

          Yes you need a bill to prosecute corruption. But you do not need a bill to SEE the corruption Diezani Alison-Madueke sits on on behalf of Goodluck Jonathan.

          • growthengine

            We have been seeing this corruption for decades. It is easier to simply plug the loop holes. If your house is on fire, will you not first stop the fire, investigate the cause and put in place systems to prevent such fire in the future before prosecuting the person responsible for the fire?

          • growthtransparency

            Look I did not speak in Greek or Latin. I am saying we all SEE the stealing and looting Diezani Alison madueke is doing in the petroleum industry on behalf of Goodluck Ebelo Jonathan. And that we can MINIMALLY first STOP this and then MAXIMALLY use the bill to radically PREVENT further looting by Diezani Alison_madueke and any other officials that may come after her. I have spoken in plain English and not econometrics! So why is that difficult for you to understand?

        • yaksy

          Pib has been signed by the president

          • growthengine

            It has been submitted by the president to the lower house for it to be deliberated and passed, after which the president will sign it into law. It is still in the House as we speak gathering dust, they like things the way they are.

        • Haters of Corruption

          But let us FIRST the corruption Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke sits ON NOW! Why doesnt this make SENSE to yu?

          • john ola

            Corruption didn’t start with Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke neither is she the founder of the word corruption. Those of you that believe in all the ill things said about her are just trying to tarnish her image, She is one person that i know every right thinking Nigerian will want as a leader in our sectors. Ever since she assumed the seat of the minister of petroleum in April 2010 we have had a very positive change in that sector.

        • Haters of Corruption

          Yes, But let us FIRST STOP the corruption under Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke NOW NOW NOW! It should not be difficult for us and her TO STOP the corruption Mrs. Alison-Madueke perpetuates NOW! How is this challenging for you to comprehend?

  • growthengine

    This is egunje journalism

    • Haters of Corruption

      And yours is an egunje posting on behalf of the corrupt Diezani Alison Madueke

      • growthengine

        All these will get us no where, before and even after her, the next minister and co travelers will take advantage of our collective weakness. We all know what has been going on for decades, and this administration has tried to either stop it or pass new laws guiding the conduct in the industry. We know who don’t want the laws passed and why.

      • john ola

        The minister who you term as being corrupt is the same person who has brought so much positive change to our petroleum sector, whenever a person is accused of something, don’t just castigate but think of all the good the person has done and place them side by side.

  • BlackieUmukoro

    Bunch of idiots and skelewus at work. She is happily married, yet you foolishly refer to her in your mumble humble petition as Ms and Mrs. When your slave drivers were there for donkey years, your slavish nature curtailed your animalistic tendencies then. Now that you have little freedom your animalistic behaviour is now fool blown. She will be there till 2019 and for your information the so called oil is from her backyard, so she is in a better position to manage it for the benefit of her people. You can keep on ranting, at least it is part of your undiluted tradition and custom

  • okwu

    Yoruba mafia firing on all front. You will never have the last laugh no matter the connection your share of Nigerian stolen wealth has gotten you abroad.

    • Rico

      Shut up! you bigot!

      • okwu

        The truth is the Yoruba people will never benefit from this and the seed of mistrust of the Yoruba has already taken Ruth.

    • JI

      Awolowo managed only western Nigeria and ammassed unending wealth for his lazy and yet unborn children

      Obasanjo managed Nigeria for 8 years and has stolen more than any African leader.

      Tinubu managed only Lagos state and has been in continuous fleecing of Lagos State funds, acquiring all lands, building hotels everywhere and acquiring dying ones, positioning his family to continue, Oil companiesn etc.

      These are what the Yoruba’s want. Open the treasuries for them and you regret.

      So they hate anybody who would just do what is right and block them from their default life. Why would they be happy with continuous flow of petrol when their fuel attendants, Alayes and Nupeng people would not have field days?

      Even in churches, they want the treasury and utilities offices to do same thing.

      Na who nor wise dey follow them sing sack him sack her, when in the real sense they want the office for their own.

      Jonathan will rule for 8 years weda una like am or not. You will be shcoked at how many minorities are in Nigeria and have queued behind their own and will vote him again.

      • okwu

        Don’t mind them. Awo planned all these shit happening in Nigeria.
        All oil fields are shared between Hausa and Yoruba leaders while the Awo led finance ministry back then trained his people to take over all oil work and put an aboki who thinks he’s in control at the top.
        The Niger delta man gets only to fish and farm in polluted land, at best as a casual worker.
        They say GEJ must go because he dares to open up other economic centers by building workable air, sea and inland ports that will see overcrowded shit hole Lagos loss it’s relevance within 5 yrs as the place to be if you want to have contact or trade with the outside world.
        OBJ said that because of the naija delta crisis he could only pump 700,000 barrel of oil which over decades has been satisfied as fact by a Yoruba law firm (William). What nobody was told was that another 1.7 million barrels left our waters on daily basis only accounted for in the pockets of Nigerians who were in the know and their foreign partners.
        The truth is that OBJ is taking his share of the bargain he made when he was made by the North to build a Abuja for them. It was time to rebuild Lagos.
        Today a lebanese is supposed to be investing in building lagos new extension. The question is who really own the money being invested by this lebanese. He surely will not invest his money in sand filling and building Nigeria when his own country need more than Nigeria.
        In the open OBJ and Tinubu were supposed to be mortal enemies but in secret has been working together all along with Salami waiting in the corner to hammer home if GEJ no wan play ball.

  • dele

    women with zero credibility and questionable integrity abound in this government and they appear to hold the President in a bind, otherwise, how do you explain the continued presence of people who lie about their credentials and claim what they never achieved in the government? in saner climes, they would have stepped aside to give the government some space and credibility? On a daily basis, they shred any little integrity and credibility that is left with the GEJ administration. The president should be bold enough to ask these women to step aside and replace them with people from their geopolitical zones, who are competent enough, and there are many of them. how come Barth Nnaji, a competent and erudite professor of robotics and a performing minister of power was asked to step aside, while women without virtues continue to parade themselves as ministers? its the irony of a nation called Nigeria. I wept the day NNAJI resigned for here is a man of integrity being sacrificed on the alter of political corruption while harlots remain in power!

    • redeem

      Did tinubu step aside when he was accused of forging his certificates by late Chief Gani? Yes in saner climes the likes of Akande the head of the APC empire in the south west, who was jailed for corruption by Buhari, will never appear in public again-we have had enough of this new yoruba thugs in APC disrturbing us–was obj able to give account of his stewardship as oil minister-she is ijaw so must go–the same was said of david west because he is ijaw he must be jailed–how many oil ministers right from the era of rilwan lukman were sent to jail after david west- Nigeria does not belong to the yorubas and their NGOs

      • Bayo

        This is about corruption and not APC. Mumu.

        • john ola

          He isn’t talking about APC either, his points also have to do with corruption. Don’t make it a party issue because the name of Tinubu is being mentioned.

          • Bayo

            And what has anyone be able to proven against Tinubu?

          • john ola

            Do not deviate the conversation please.

      • Rico

        You shall know them by the dimension of their conversation, the no good doers and inbetweeners, the second fiddles and pathetic liars.

    • john ola

      These people you condemn here are people who have been working effectively in their various sectors, everyone is meant to make a mistake at a point in his or her life. Even if she (the minister of petroleum) has made a mistake, it isn’t as bad as it is stated above.

  • Abdul Nagge

    To the person who rubbery, kidnapping, baby factor is a source of huge capital or it is clean and clear business. Therefore corruption is nothing to them but being a complete man reasoning.

  • Uzoma

    It beats me hollow how these so-called civil society groups could think such a silly move is an effective way to fight corruption. Since when did OPEC become the arbiter of who is corrupt and who is not in Nigeria? If anything, this tells funding organizations how brain-dead our Nigerain civil society fraudsters are.

  • beddy chibs

    A stupid work of a jobless man.OPEC can not decide on how Nigerians want to rule themselves.Shame on the writer of this nonsense.Go and enjoy the filthy money you have been paid to rubbish yourself.

  • Armstrong

    Real halot wats she still doing dia incompetent lied nd forged papers to sit we’re she is. Not so posed to dis is d kind of country we r in

  • Guguru

    I see no reason for the long letter. Once American shale oil hits the streets, OPEC will be forced to adjust to a new reality. Secondly, these civil societies can appear somewhat aloof and completely oblivious to what matters. I wonder why these groups together with the NLC have not gone on a massive strike to demand an end to corruption, impunity, etc.This is what I would like to see. Else, they are simply another political agent in the same system.

  • Franklin

    Like was written up there, this is an ‘egunje’ article written by a disgruntled hater. I wonder if Mr. Abodurin didn’t imagine that OPEC would have carried out a thorough vetting before appointing Mrs madueke to such a reverred, exulted position. Well, let’s watch and see.

  • Franklin

    Why has Mr Aboderin suddenly decided to lose sleep over our dear MInister’s recognition and appointment? If not for anything, i personally applaud Diezani for non-stop supply of AGO, DPK and PMS at least for a good length of time. For this unverified article, i think Mr Aboderin can do better than stalking people around.

  • olemon

    Before Diezani they all stole with ignominy and still punished us with no petrol>I strongly think she is the best petroleum minister ever.

    • Agbor Kingsley

      Good one keep it up

  • olemon

    all allegations and unproving in a court of law.Madam Madueke is doing a fantastic job via her local content bill etc.There is petrol all over>Diezani is the best petroleum minister ever

    • Tony Ton

      True one.

  • akpos Okude

    Diezani in my opinion is the best minister of petroleum ever in the history of Nigeria.Mark my words.Remove Diezani today and petrol queues will return in a flash

    • Agbor Kingsley

      The problem with this country is that, they will never realize the important of the person until the person leave the seat.

    • Tony Ton

      Thank you so much for pointing to the fact, they have failed to understand that since Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke became minister, all the cries for fuel and the long queues in the fuel stations reduced drastically. The moment she is out of that position they will realize her worth.

      • Esther Gabriel

        My brother human being are numerous you can expect everybody to reason the same way like you, but God has the final say.

        • Tony Ton

          That’s it, we just need his grace in our nation.

          • Esther Gabriel

            Brother with the pressure of fasting and prayer that is going on now, God will surely answer us and realist the grace for our dear nation Nigeria.

  • Edu Omiemie

    She is the best minister of petroleum ever in the history of nigeria>Hausa purdah leave her alone.Infact the oil belongs to her as she is from Bayelsa state and she is even dynamic and providing petrol since became minister and no more petrol queues

  • Kumai

    without mincing words.Madam Madueke is not corrupt and she is very capable in the sense that her primary duty is to make sure that we have petroleum products and this she is doing perfectly.I hail her as the best of all petroleum ministers

  • crincumcracum

    allegation unfounded and unproving.She is doing a great job as petroleum minister.Continue your good job allison madueke

  • crincumcracum

    Hausa Fulani Youruba and Ibo Wazobia Kings.Please leave her alone and stop accusing her unjustly.She has never even been investigated not to talk of being charged as all the allegations are frivolous and unfounded.We thinks she is an amazing minister of petroleum doing what all other ministers before her could not do i.e. providing petroleum products permanently since she became minister

    • Williams

      hmhmh hm Readers can see that crincumcracum =auchi=eki=kumai=edu naomiemie naakpos okude=olemon … So Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke has become so desperate as to recruit these online hirelings to speak for her and her Oga-President Goodluck Jonathan. Too bad that this is how the Federal Republic of Nigeria is run. Just too bad. I hope the OPEC people are watching. All these online writers on behalf of Mrs Alison-madueke are disgusting. You betrayed yourselves so badly you shame Nigeria and shame the madam -Alison Madueke-you are defending.

  • eki

    all of you pepper souping and big stouting without looking at the facts and evidence before you.look well and tell us if before Diezani you had petrol queues or not and since she became minister what has happened.She is an incredible beauty and brains.

    • Ike

      na wa o! beauty and brain for who? For Oga on Top!!!

  • auchi

    all false allegations.Leave alone to continue to do a dynamic job

    • ichua

      which work- the corrupt Malabu Oil deal? why did President Jonathan set up the Ribadu Task For to probe the oil Industry under Diezani Alison Madueke and then threw the report away? which job a beg?

  • everret jacob

    Diezani is an amazing and perfect petroleum minister i read the write up and they are all allegations which where never worth even investigating not to talk of being charged to court.She is the best petroleum minister ever for sure.Diezani continue to feed our petrol stations with fuel

    • ichua

      because President Jonathan WILL NEVER ALLOW EFCC TO INVESTIGATE HER MADAM WHO ACTS ON HIS BEHALF. ARE YU DAFT?

  • Mallam Sanusi Dankwanbo

    i live in Kafanchan and before this woman and for over 30 years our petrol stations were permanently empty with no fuel.Since she became petroleum minister it has been like a dream with petrol flowing .I beg you to please do not punish us again with any attempt to remove her.She is a doing a great job

    • Williams

      So crincumcracum =auchi=eki=kumai=edu naomiemie naakpos okude=olemon … have to suddenly emerge again (after abusing Yorubas and the North ) to take on a “northern” name!!!! Ah ah ah wonder will not end. Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, these false names you and your defenders are using will only worsen your corrupt case by confirming that all these allegations that you are corrupt on behalf of President Jonathan are true and that you are desperate to draw a facade over it. Mallam Sanusi Dankwanbo =crincumcracum =auchi=eki=kumai=edu naomiemie naakpos okude=olemon =Diezani Alison-Madueke na Goodluck Jonathan. Please try your next trick and come out in a “Yoruba” name!!! You are a cheat and an irredeemably corrupt woman in and out.

  • Chioma Linda

    With Diezani, there was non-stop supply of AGO, DPK and PMS
    for a very long period of time, So I suggest that Mr Aboderin has a re-think and allow her to continue her good
    work.

  • Ade

    Aboderin, a transducer, little mind, freckled conception of unresolved character. Wait and see her shine again again like a ‘crazy diamond ‘ (Pink Floyd). While you wait for another pay master to do another hatchet job. Be reasonable and occupy your self gainfully.

  • Emma

    CSNAC, upon all other events that happen globally, you choose our dear Diezani to discredit. You no go see better. Why can’t Nigerians from other climes Hausa, Ibo and especially Yorubas see other achievements as a thumps up. She has performed creditable from all sector. You can’t beat the good old cheese.

  • Chioma Linda

    Diezani remains the best minister Nigeria has ever produced.
    She is God sent to the people of this great country and must be allowed to keep
    the flag flying.

    • john ola

      No matter what the enemies are doing to bring her down, God will always be at her side and put them to shame.

  • amina

    Why ar we not saying the truth.can what she she did happen abroad.we ar always referring to other when issues are being raised.why?someone back date her graduation date is automatically an offense but instead of discoursing that issue we are always referring to other people.wonder when we will move forward in this country.unemplyment,corruption,electricity,bad roads are there forums to discuss.plese people should stop this criticism when facts are being raised.when Jonathan is mentioned people refere to Obj,when Ameachi is mentioned they reference to fashola.please let us stop this rubbish and make reasonable comments that will be useful to this greatcountryof ours.

  • Mariam

    I think Adeola Abodurin is trying to justify the money being paid to him, because in all he has said there is no justification to his article.

    • Tony Ton

      How much money is worth tarnishing the image of a person? May God help us.

      • john ola

        We really need his help in this nation.

  • Adaora Jika

    It is very obvious that this is a well-paid article…haters stop hating!!!

  • Adaora Jika

    Mrs. Alison-Madueke has served in different capacities as an appointed public office holder in Nigeria. she has handled issues well as far as i am concerned. pls online journalism is not meant for blackmails…lets use it appropriately.

    • Agbor Kingsley

      Thank you Mr Adaora for the good contribution, this is how people wake up from sleep and start posting unnecessary comment for the story they don’t know.

      • john ola

        These are the kind of stories that tarnish the images of our leaders, someone who hasn’t heard of the minister before will automatically term her a bad leader after reading this.

  • Mariam

    If Abodurin refuse to appreciate the Good Work the Minister and presently Alternate President of OPEC is doing in NNPC and its subsidiaries of the success they had recorded in eliminating fuel gueues at filling stations in past few years, he should hide his head in shame because someone like him is a disgrace to the Yoruba race.

    • john ola

      Anyone who is able to hide the truth all because of money isn’t worth being in existence because he is taking alot of people reading this towards the wrong way.

  • fatai

    Why don”t we leave our good leaders alone and let them perform their duties,Mrs Alision Madueke is one of the best ministers we have witnessed in this country….i don”t know why this so called group wont just stop this propaganda

  • Agbor Kingsley

    Deziani Alison Madueke is the best and faithful Minister that Nigeria ever produce, however Alison Madueke is a hard-working woman who has work tirelessly to ensure steady fuel in the country, no more scarcity of fuel now for the pass 3 years, is that not an achievement? God bless Alison Madueke,God bless Nigeria.

    • JI

      Jonathan and his team are returning Nigeria to the days immediately after Gowon rule and the evil people of the land are quickly massing up in a party to stop him and continue with the status-quo.

      I am happy that Nissan has spoken about commencing car assembly in Nigeria and asking that that their assessories manufacturers should also open shops in Nigeria.

      They are evil who profit from the least government activities yet want to control the Government

  • I Hate Sycophant Truly

    We have a mercifull God, some people can tell lie and continue telling it and still call the name of God in it. God why do you always give second chance to liar and evil doer? If the consciousness is there that if you err once that is the end, the level of this lie end evil deed would have reduced.
    People sat down and raised issues already at the front burner in our corruption diary but we are here defending undefendable. If this dispensation lapse the truth of the matter will be open to all the whole world. it was the same way Ibori case started and the likes of you people came out to wrong it, now the same man is rotten in London cell. Can someone help me bring out Ribadu’s report for the world to see. One thing always baffles me when an issue is raised small mind

    small minds always jump to another topic without discussing the main issue. This woman has committed sins against the nation and she has not been punished till now. I remember Evans Ewerem, he only changed his age and the law caught up with him. One of the sins of Ayo Fayose was that he mistakenly used Ayodele instead of Ayo in his document submitted to INEC. The same with Tinubu, someone in the defunct AD filled his governorship form for him why in abroad and wrongly put state university of Chicago instead of Chicago university but just two years ago it was detected. Pls let’s stop defending the undefendable so that tomorrow when london court jail her you will not hide in your cabin.

    Kingley i agree with you on that because there has been no cause for fuel scarcity and queue in our filling station since she became the minister of petroleum in Nigeria….she is indeed doing a good job,she deserve the best,so those groups should stop and forget that false petition.

  • JI

    They are foolish people, if dem like they should go to the UNO to ask that the woman be removed, nothing go happen

    Petroleum Ministry is not meant for the Yoruba’s and Hausa Fulani’s alone. Let them tell us how many times they asked that Rilwanu Lukman – one of the richest men on earth be removed while he stole Nigeria blind with the crook presidents he served.

    Na hypertsension go kill una. Better wait until one of your own become president in the future before you can have it.

  • makinwa

    I agree with you Adaora,you have nailed it all

  • Esther Gabriel

    Nigerians should learn how to appreciate, Deziani Alison Madueke Minister of petroleum resources has done a fantastic job in that sector, she therefore deserve an award because she has work above the capacity and the expectation that many Nigerians thought.

  • Williams

    Mrs. Diezani Alison-Maduke must be a shameless woman inside and outside indeed. Her corruption is so legendary, her sponsor President Jonathan asked Nuhu Ribadu to probe the petroleum Industry. But what did Goodluck Jonathan do upon getting the report. ? He saw the indictment of the one-Diezani Alison_madueke- who keeps money for him, he threw the report away. Readers and yhe International community and OPEC can see the desperation of Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke to cover her shame and corruption in the similarity of the posts of these sponsored names. These names do not exist. They are right from Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke’s office. I had earlier called attention to this. But Mrs Alison_madueke had added more fictitious names. Readers should just check the regularity of these posts and the way they are written and come to your own conclusion. They are crincumcracum =auchi=eki=kumai=edu naomiemie naakpos okude=olemon=everet jacob=kumai=franklin=Guguru na Uzoma na redeem na growthengine=okwu=esther Gabriel=makinwa=fatai na agbor kingsley =Ji na fatai = mariam =John Ola = Adaora Jika = Tony Ton = Chioma Linda = Emma = Ade na Mallam Sanusi Dan kwanbo . Just the posts and the thrust of the posts you will see EXACTLY the same message. Mrs Diezani Alison _madueke who backdated her graduation must be so “clean” she needs to recruit all these names to defend her. The simple question is: why will a minister of the federal republic of Nigeria BACKDATE HER GRADUATION DATE? WHAT IS GOING ON? IF THESE NAMES who are defending Mrs. Alison _madueke are real does that mean they see nothing wrong in a woman, a parent BACKDATING HER GRADUATION ? At a personal home level if Mrs. madueke backdates her graduation, what does she teach her children? Does she teach them TO BE DISHONEST AND BACKDATE THEIR GRADUATION TOO? This is a shame. too bad. let all this woman hide her face in shame. This is another low point for President Goodluck Jonathan’s regime which is corrupt thru and thru.

  • p town man

    If you ask me I think it is best to let her go to OPEC if you say she is corrupt. So that we can all shout and rejoice that Nigeria is free from one corrupt citizen.
