Missing $20 billion: Rep lambasts Okonjo-Iweala, Alison-Madueke for withholding report

Nigeria's Former Minister of Petroleum Diezani Allison-Madueke

A member of the House of Representatives, Moshood Mustapha, has criticised the Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and her Petroleum Resources counterpart, Diezani Madueke, for refusing to release the forensic audit report on the operations of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.

Mr. Mustapha, a member of All Progressives Congress from Kwara State, is the Vice-Chairman, House Committee on Petroleum Resources.

The audit, undertaken by international firm PriceWaterHouseCoopers, indicted the NNPC and recommended that the national oil company refund about $1.48billion to the Federation Account for various unreconciled transactions.

The investigation was carried out over claim that $20 billion oil money had not been accounted for the government-owned company.

The Nigerian government has refused to make the report public despite public outcry. President Goodluck Jonathan only ordered the release of a “highlight” of the report early February, several months after the completion of work by PwC.

Analysts believe the report contains far more serious indictment than reflected in the “highlight”, hence the government’s decision to keep the document under wraps as a crucial election approaches.

In February, Ms. Alison-Madueke said the report will not be published ahead of the elections because Nigeria’s “rabid opposition” will find “all sorts of minute detail (in the full report) to create concern.”

Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala and Alison-Madueke have refused to release the report despite a one-week ultimatum by the House of Representatives.

Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES, Mr. Mustapha condemned the refusal to publish the audit report, describing it as “part of characteristic impunity that defines this government”.

“A minister will feel she can do anything since she has a president that tolerates corruption or when she can go to the judiciary for injunctions to prevent the legislature from doing their constitutional work,” he said.

“Even if she does not honour the ultimatum issued to her to submit the audit report, we could have asked the police to arrest her but is the police independent under this administration to act rightly? But then, we allow Nigerians to see and judge them. And that’s why change is imminent come March 28. It’s not about Sarakis, Buharis, Ameachis but Nigerians’ determination to stop impunity and misgovernance,” he said.

He added that, “it seems to me as insanity when a government sees constructive criticism of the opposition as frustration. For me criticism from APC should make the PDP government more hardworking and do better in terms of governance, having had the consciousness some people are there to check them. Democracy as well as good governance is not possible without viable opposition,”

Mr. Mustapha said the current setting of Nigeria’s petroleum industry is characterised by a lack of transparency and accountability. This, he said, denies the government and citizens “huge funds that should have been freed up for developmental purposes.”

“The way it is nobody knows the quantity of oil we produce. Nobody knows what we earn daily, monthly or yearly. Nobody knows what we pay as part of our obligations in the exploration of crude oil. Nobody knows the account into which proceeds paid and in certain and transparent terms, what goes into the federation account daily.

“Let me give you an example which many find inconsequential but which in reality affects our development drive in this country. The funds meant for operation of Petroleum Trust Development Fund (PTDF) are not being remitted. With that, many of our citizens on scholarship abroad have been abandoned and not been funded adequately. Similarly, PTDF has been stifled and finds it difficult to perform its even domestic obligations in different areas including education which is the bedrock of any development,” he said.

Responding to the question of solution to the absence of accountability and transparency in the petroleum industry, the lawmaker said, “The way out is to have the Petroleum Industry Bill in place. “

“It is to regulate the oil and gas industry and promote transparency, accountability and best practices. It will also reform the regulatory, structural, commercial, as well as the fiscal framework of Nigeria’s petroleum industry in order to stop the mismanagement, inefficiency and lack of transparency that characterise the sector.”

He said the National Assembly was careful in passing the law to ensure Nigerians are given the best provisions.

      5.The FIRST successful power sector privatization, transparent and hitch free. Many regimes/administrations were afraid to take bold steps because of the cabals.
      **GEJ has completed 10 Power plants within 3years, which is the FIRST and highest record by any President in Nigeria living or dead. So why re ignorant people talking as if the Power issue is an instant magic thing. Obviously with our large population, we will need more power plants to generate more power.
      6.Our electricity generation reached its all-time peak of 4500 megawatts for the FIRST TIME in 2012.

      16.For the FIRST TIME, GEJ signed Freedom of Information Bill (FOI) …though some people are using this freedom to now insult their president.
      17. FIRST electoral reforms in Nigeria. For the FIRST TIME, Nigerians can actually say elections is about one man one vote – Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan made it possible for your vote to count!
      If you have chosen to deny the visible progress of this administration in the past 5+- years (and you know yourselves) and condemn every good effort of the Government, too sad, but I will not join you to do the same. If your denial of these strides means you love Nigeria more than the rest of us, then go ahead. But trust me, when favor knocks on your door, so shall you deny it ignorantly. This is not where we should but the transformation train is in progress.
      I will bring you more updates and I know some of y’all just hate to love the truth

        Listen to yourself! “was it not handed over to the Accountant General of the Federation–?” So the report was presented to AGF? Why portray yourself as an illiterate?

        Let everyone see the report at least it was mass protest that led to the “forensic” report, lay it bare for all to read. Why hide it?

  • Anyone who thinks Jonathan runs a democratic government is joking. What then can we call Jonathan’s government? KAKISTOCRACY! Your vote for Buhati will give Nigeria a democratic government.

      I doubt if you read this article, if you did you simply did not understand anything said here. The APC member indicted himself in the process of accusing others. If the passage of PIB is the solution to the opaqueness in oil industry, why has he and his colleagues in the parliament for 4 years refuse to pass this very important bill instead of blaming the executive and you here ignorantly and conveniently blame the finance minister?

    • Rotimi Lawanson

      I am absolutely shocked that a Member of the House of Representatives doesn’t even know the Constitution he is sworn to uphold. This shows what is wrong with our House of Representatives. So this Moshood Mustapha doesn’t know that he and his colleagues have in the constitution that it is the duty of the Auditor General to oversee and release any audit conducted by the Federation. How does that concern Okonjo Iweala? Is he inviting her or her colleague to commit an illegality by usurping the powers of the Auditor General of the Federation? Okonjo Iweala suggested an audit should be done and offered to oversee this audit. The Senate overruled her and reminded her that it is the duty of the Auditor General to oversee the report. SO HOW IS THAT HER RESPONSIBILITY? IT isn’t even the responsibility of the Petroleum Minister even though she is a direct interested party. This man must be intellectually bankrupt to suggest something like this! Instead of summoning the Auditor General or directing the Auditor General to immediately release the full report this man who is supposed to oversee our laws is shooting elsewhere. Ode nie!!!

    • Rotimi Lawanson

      You must have Almajiri education because you don’t even understand your own constitution. I have attached my comment below to educate you because it is clear that you lack that formal education that allows you to critically think. That is why you would accept anything without examining it properly.

  • Adebisi

    APC and their everyday cry. Price waters has proven it that $20Billion isn’t missing. APC and it’s allies should be ashamed of themselves. APC are evil in disguise

    • akyn

      what are they hiding if nothing is missing? PwC did not say or prove the missing of the $20 Billion. Only the ponmu lip minister say so to deceive people like you. Let us see the full report. Simple request

        We all know that Dzieani is the real president , jonathan is just acting. When she used ten billion naira to hire aircrafts for gallivanting all over the globe and it became public knowledge, did jonathan sack her? There are sacred cows in jonathan’s cabinet who steal with brazen impunity. Let us just vote them out so that corruption doesn’t kill us. Like Buhari said ‘ If we do not kill corruption, corruption will kill us

    Madam Ngo ati Alison, You say that the PWC report vindicates your claim that $20 billion is not missing, yet you are not rushing to release a report that proves your Innocence. It is like a man accused of a crime withholding evidence that proves his innocence.

    Something doesnt smell right here.

          • Rotimi Lawanson

            birds of the same feather or rather goats of pessimism of the same yam! nothing positive to contribute always quick to criticize. Never any solution from two arm chair critics. Please Ogogoro, please proffer solutions to challenges Nigeria is facing for once. Lets hear your ideas and not your silly criticisms which anyone one with half a brain can do.

          • Guguru

            Rotimi,

            Can you make a car in an accident to become new again? Nigeria is a car in an accident and you are askinig us to help your warped mind with ideas on how to make the car new again? Are you okay today? Why do you struggle with the truth and with logic? We have no ideas for a failed state. What sort of ideas would you suggest for a failed state? Nigeria now uses mercenaries to conduct sovereign military operations, right?

          • Rotimi Lawanson

            Oh so you know your fellow colleague Ogogoro. Two goats of the same feather. You are always quick to write on any site that says anything negative about Ngozi Okonjo Iweala. Two empty and unaccomplished people who will never be recognized by anyone. Please tell me, Tunde Mash and Ogogoro, who knows your mothers or sisters? What have they accomplished? NOTHING! Olodos!

          • Rotimi Lawanson

            I disdain people that cannot think for themselves and i also dislike pseudo intellectuals like you Ogogoro. You write nonsense, masturbate on the nonsense you write and come back to repeat the same crap the next day. Seeing someone saying something wrong does not stop you from expressing your constitutional right to vote for Buhari. What is intellectually dishonest is to criticize anything that has Ngozi Okonjo Iweala’s name simply because she is there. It makes me come to one of two conclusions: Either you are a very envious person or one of those people who enjoy negativity. Such people never rise very far in life.

          • Guguru

            Rotimi,

            LOL. Do you realize you are not yet finished paying for your psychiatric appointments? I can help you to pay down the debt of your treatment if you ask nicely. These are the facts: Ngozi was kicked out of Obasanjo’s administration. Ngozi was passed over for the job of Word Bank President. Ngozi lied about the number of jobs created in 2013. Ngozi uses promissory notes to pay down debt. What part of what i have said ticked you off enough to make your psychiatric medication largely useless in calming you down?You need all our love and affection, don’t you?

          • Guguru

            Wahala or Rotimi Lwanson,

            No need to get upset. We know you love Ngozi Okonjo Incompetent. You cannot help yourself, can you?

        • tundemash

          That is rich coming from a paid agent !
          It was Ngozi who went to the parliament and told them the govt will be contracting an auditing firm on the $20bn stolen money….. where was your constitution then cl0wn ? The buck passing game will surely end in May this year and all that is hidden will be revealed.

          • Rotimi Lawanson

            Let me help you since you are intellectually challenged. Please read below and get educated on the sequence of events. I don’t need anyone to pay me. I have two masters degrees and I work in my company. I am free to express my opinion as you are. It is a mark of your moral bankruptcy that you believe that for me to have very strong views I must be paid. That is how low you are.

            The guy called Rotimi Lawanson is actually Wahala. He is obsessed with defending Ngozi Okonji Iweala. He thinks she is not corrupt even though she works for the most corrupt administration. Once you mention Ngozi in bad light, Wahala will show up with a different pseudonym to attack you.

          • tundemash

            Nope. @Wahala isn’t the feeble mind Rotimi Lawanson.. I have known at @Wahala for several years and can easily decipher his posts!

            tundemash,

            I am telling you that Wahala is Rotimi Lawanson. I cannot reveal how I made that determination. if I revealed it, he will adapt very quickly. He thinks he is smart. LOL.

          • Guguru

            You have repeated your points so many times but I am still so daft to understand the importance . My own interest is whoever has the audit report should take it to Nass. Are they all deaf and blind to know of the request for its presentation to the public.FOI INDEED!

  • Rommel

    My people,the truth of the matter is that $20 Billion is missing from the federation account

    • Rotimi Lawanson

      It is in your father’s house that the $20 billion is eh? You obviously don’t know your constitution. The same Senate told Okonjo Iweala that she cannot oversee an audit she suggested. They reminded her that it is the constitutional duty of the Auditor General of the Federation to oversee the audit and so she should hands off. How is that her responsibility? We have Lawmakers that don’t even know the constitution they are supposed to uphold. Meanwhile PWC has a global reputation and will never doctor any report to favor anyone. They have released their report and it says about $1.48 should be refunded by NNPC. I know it is painful to find out that you have been lied to by APC – a party desperate for power.

          Guguru you are a sick man for asking such question. When someone is telling the truth, it is only reasonable to encourage him and not to say rubbish. If you are being paid to peddle propaganda, the whole Nigeria is not paid to do so.

          • Guguru

            Emeka,

            Truth? How do you define truth? Am I or anyone else supposed to take the words of a near psychiatric patient as truth, and why would you want anyone to do so? Encourage what? From which forest did you escape today? Why you have chosen to make these strange comments today is really scary.

        • Rotimi Lawanson

          Oh Ogogoro, you are here again. So you left your palm wine and ogogoro to come back here. The eternal arm chair critic who builds castles and intellectual knowledge in the sky but nothing in reality. Pele!!

            Rotimi,

            You sound like Wahala, who seems to defend Ngozi and enjoys using the term “Ogogoro”. Hmmm! Anywho, we will soon find out. LOL. How was your psychiatric appointment this morning? Did all go well or were you issued more pills to help your mind stay focused and less agitated?

          • You have good points for the public consumption; Please, check your mental compact and keep to the your points/views. Avoid harsh measles, keep them at the lowest energy level for your opponents. Just let them be aware you are up to date on issues….

  • SAM .A

    The $20billion Missing Report from PwHC does not belong to PDP or APC, it belongs to Nigerians , it is unfortunate that Ngozi & Dezeani Madueke does not know the difference between the Minister of PDP and the Minister of Federal Republic of Nigeria. The politicization of their office is making Mockery of democracy . No wonder the House ,a third arm of Government invited them , with impunity & disdain they treated all these old men as a headmistress treating her pupils. What a shame.
    Election or none, Nigerians want to see their report, hiding it now for whatever reason means the speculation that more money were stolen is right. We have to do away with government that is dishonest, & none transparent.
    People deceiving Party is further compounding their problem of integrity & transparency.
    If this report is still hidden till after3/28 . Nigerians should know that we are dealing with a set of crooks in Government.
    It is time for us to vote out dishonest people in Government.

            Do you need a horse pill to help you calm down? Why are you hiding behind Rotimi Lawanson? Why do you love Ngozi so much? Is she your mother or do you sleep with her? LOL.

  • Arabakpura

    Can someone remind me? Who is the opposition again? PDP or APC; I am not quite sure now!

  • blueeyedkitten

    they would have doctored the report before releasing it.

  • Rotimi Lawanson

    I am absolutely shocked that a Member of the House of Representatives doesn’t even know the Constitution he is sworn to uphold. This shows what is wrong with our House of Representatives. So this Moshood Mustapha doesn’t know that he and his colleagues have in the constitution that it is the duty of the Auditor General to oversee and release any report. How does that concern Okonjo Iweala? Is he inviting her or her colleague to commit an illegality by usurping the powers of the Auditor General of the Federation? This man must be intellectually bankrupt to suggest something like this.

    • Guguru

      Rotimi,

      You utterances are now bordering on the heretical and hateful. What is the matter with you today? Do you need to be placed in a straight jacket? LOL.

      • Rotimi Lawanson

        Ogogoro you are here again also? What happened to your palm wine and ogogoro? You must have forgotten your bottle and palm wine keg somewhere because you used LOL at the end of your sentences which means LOVE OLODOS!

  • Seun

    It is really unfortunate that a supposed legislator would be so ignorant as to make such incongruous statements as the ones made by Moshood Mustapha. No wonder the national assembly has been more of a liability than an asset.

  • Emeka Uwadiah

    This man should shot his mouth if he will not tell himself the truth. A man that has accepted corruption as a way of life is the one coming to talk about corruption. He should hold Tinubu and his partner in crime responsible first. Off course we know he will not because he part of the looters in the Lagos State house of Assembly. Ole oshi!

    • Olufemi Adebayo

      Amazing how inept so many Nigerians are in thinking. So the guy has committed a sin by questioning the minister for not releasing audit report. God help us. I wonder how much your share is

      • Rotimi Lawanson

        Is it the responsibility of the Minister to release the report? How can you ask an interested party to release the report? And you are here ignorantly supporting. Do you know what the constitutional duty of the Auditor General is? Do you even know who has the report? Ignorance is terrible. Tomorrow when a legal report is prepared, you will come and ask the Minister of Finance to release the report instead of asking the Attorney General of the Federation. Truly, a little education is very dangerous.

        • Guguru

          Wahala or Rotimi Lawanson,

          Your love for Ngozi Okonji Iweala is well known. Is she your mother? Did she pay you to defend her. LOL.

        • john d

          how come you are not talking about the missing 1.4billion$$$…. this is truly amazing

        • Olufemi Adebayo

          So that is your level of intelligence? To come to the net and spit out insults. All these institutions you mentioned are they not under the Government? If there was a forensic report on NNPC why do we need a constitutional meeting or discussion to just publish it? Its when there is dishonesty that we start quoting legalese. Your post really shows your level of education just like the people you support, ask them questions and they start throwing insults.

          • Rotimi Lawanson

            Olufemi, did you read what i wrote? If the Senate has ruled that she cannot oversee the audit and she should hands of the audit, what do you want her to do? Should she overrule the Senate and take over the Audit? If you felt so strongly about her overseeing the audit or taking responsibility for it then you should have gone to protest at the Senate when they asked her to hands off. Please google and educate yourself. We are not here for emotional outbursts.

          • Olufemi Adebayo

            No one is emotional here, you are the one throwing insults rather than stating your point as you understand it. That would have been enough. The congressman may have made mistakes about who is responsible, but its still the responsibility of the govt agency involved to publish the report. Its time we start asking questions rather than hiding behind technicalities to suppress the truth. That is my point.

  • Guguru

    In 2011, Ngozi refused to submit a KPMG report to the Senate.

    “On Thursday December 1, the Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, cringed when the senate joint committee investigating the management of funds set aside for petroleum subsidy handed her a seven-day ultimatum to produce a secret forensic report on the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation in her custody.

    The audit, done for her ministry by renowned audit and advisory consultancy, KPMG, which exposed the massive financial malfeasance and monumental corruption in the NNPC, is one document the federal government, the petroleum ministry and the NNPC have worked hard to conceal for a little over a year now.

    The report, which could trigger a fierce face-off between the federal and state governments, is one of the most closely guarded secrets in Nigeria today. It contains shocking details of how the NNPC, and by implication, the federal government has consistently swindled the states and tax payers.

    So when the committee requested Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala to produce it, she became a bit uneasy, knowing that doing so might embarrass the administration and sparked some troubles for the NNPC, a source close to her told PREMIUM TIMES. Initially the minister didn’t make any commitment, but when pressed by committee members, she reluctantly
    acceded to the request.”

    Premium Times, December 2011, “The damning KPMG report govt, NNPC, do not want Nigerians to see”

    • Dan Osofisan

      How can you be quoting Premium Times to justify Premium Times? What sort of nonsensical logic is that?

      • Guguru

        Dan,

        I see that your education was a troubled and inconsequential one. I was not trying to justify Premium Times. i was simply showing pattern of behavior by the questionable Ngozi Okonji Iweala. If you saw the article I presented as a form of justification, then it may make sense to have a word or two with the teachers who taught you in school or even better, we could demand that the school you attended return your tuition for failing to provide the right education, don’t you think? Or, what do you say?

        • Rotimi Lawanson

          i dey laugh ooo! A person who thinks he/she is clever displaying crass stupidity by using Premium Times to justify Premium Times and then trying to do a 419 on us with a useless explanation. Hehehe!

          • Guguru

            Wahala or Rotimi,

            Why do you hide behind “Rotimi Lawanson”? I noticed you were Wahala once you defence began with Ngozi. I matched you response to the rather naive commentary you provide and voila, I was correct. Every time you write, you expose yourself one evidence at a time. LOL.

          • Rotimi Lawanson

            I don’t know who Wahala is and i am not like you. My name is there for you to see. I don’t hide behind any pseudonyms. I am not a coward like you. If Wahala shares my sentiments, that is his or her prerogative. I don’t need to mask my identity and spew rubbish. I am a Christian who stands for the truth and I will never be swayed by Political or Ethnic sentiments. If you cannot handle it then that is your problem not mine. On another note, why do you always default to comments about sex?Are you sexually starved?

          • Guguru

            Wahala or Rotimi,

            LOL. So, you lie like this? I am so surprised at you. I knew you were a German clown and liar.

          • john d

            your stupidity is colossus …. and you are feeling yourself…. the ffk syndrome

    • Rotimi Lawanson

      You are so deluded. You just engage in pseudo intellectual masturbation. What has that report as you allude to got to do with this report dealing with the phantom $20 billion? If you want to see the report please write to the Auditor General of the Federation. If you are only going to sit in your arm chair and pen nonsense then shut up! We all know Premium Times is an APC site. It only publishes articles criticizing the current government and nothing on any APC state or official. So quoting Premium Times as your source doesn’t amount to much. It is like a Republican quoting Rush Limbaugh as his source or Fox News as his source. Please show me any article criticizing anything APC on Premium Times. PWC is a global firm and it has conducted the audit and come out with its report which is in the possession of the Auditor General. If this daft House of Reps member were serious he would petition the Auditor General to release the report instead of asking an interested party for a report she is not constitutionally empowered to release. I wouldn’t want to believe that a member of our House of Reps doesn’t know the constitution he is sworn to uphold so i would say he is playing politics. Tinubu and co are not interested in the report because it doesn’t favor them so they would rather shout through the rooftops. I dare this House Member to challenge the Auditor General to release the report. Where is Femi Falana? Why can’t he take the Auditor General to court to release the report? The report indicts some marketing firms including Oando and a few other top firms dealing with NNPC. So Tinubu is in no hurry to want this report. That is why they keep shouting at the wrong people.

      • Guguru

        Rotimi,

        Why insult me when I provided facts? I simply wanted to help you to see the truth. I want to help you to be a better person in life. Any reason why you love using the word “masturbate”? Are you letting out suppressed sexual perversions lodged in your mind? My good friend, you need all the help and love we can offer you.

        • Rotimi Lawanson

          You are a pervert and a morally bankrupt individual. Which facts did you provide? Nothing!!! I challenged you to tell me what i said that was incorrect and you resorted to insults. IS it the Constitutional duty of the Minister of Finance to release an Audit? Please answer me. No long answer please because this is a simple Yes or No answer. If you cannot then SHUT UP PLEASE!

          • Guguru

            Wahala,

            Is this all you got? Why are you lying to people that you are Rotimi Lawanson? You have turned into a liar like Ngo baby, your sweetheart, abi?

      • john d

        this is pure madness… premium times is useless but you are here… my goodness… you will never find me listening to rush limbaugh, so i find him useless… so why are you here i repeat

        • Rotimi Lawanson

          I am here to make sure the truth is not distorted. Some of us have to stand for the truth. We don’t just accept things and regurgitate the nonsense dished out.

  • Dan Osofisan

    They have started again! Displaying their ignorance for all to see. How is it now the responsibility of the Minister of Finance to release an audit report when we have an Auditor General of the Federation? Imagine Mustapha Moshood uttering such nonsense and making himself and his colleagues the target of derision…so much for upholding the Constitution!

  • Ayodeji

    Nigeria is such an interesting country! Can you imagine a senator who does not even understand the basic code that guides the conduct of his duties? How can you ask Okonjo-Iweala to provide the result of the forensic audit when we have an auditor-general?

  • Grandohally

    Moshood Mustapha, I ask you where is your reputation? People are referring to you as Honourable, are you truly honourable? If you don’t know that what you have is a platform to tell the truth; you better have a second thought. Tinubu is busy moving free all over the place and you say you are honourable? I choose not to be part of those you are deceiving here in Lagos. You just want to cause confusion.

    • Teddy

      Don’t you have a functional head to think? Can’t you, for a while be reasonable? Must every serious issue be trivialised or politicised? Somebody is discussing a very serious issue that affects the economy you are reducing same to personal attack. I am afraid Tinubu phobia will kill people like you.

      • Rotimi Lawanson

        My friend i think your stupidity is a form of corruption. Do you even know what our constitution says? You are here asking someone if his head is functional meanwhile yours is clearly not.

  • Shaanu Akowe

    Rumors of financial appropriation making the rounds remain
    unfounded and unsubstantiated. If Mustapha’s estimation of strong political will
    is to punish one innocent person for an unproven allegation, with other
    criminals or bypass the inefficient judiciary of the country has, however
    inefficient it might seem to be, then it will mean that APC intends to rather
    rule with an iron fist that no Nigerian will welcome at all.

  • Rotimi Lawanson

    This man is off on a tangent. I am absolutely shocked that a Member of the House of Representatives doesn’t even know the Constitution he is sworn to uphold. This shows what is wrong with our House of Representatives. So this Moshood Mustapha doesn’t know that he and his colleagues have in the constitution that it is the duty of the Auditor General to oversee and release any audit conducted by the Federation. How does that concern Okonjo Iweala? Is he inviting her or her colleague to commit an illegality by usurping the powers of the Auditor General of the Federation? Okonjo Iweala suggested an audit should be done and offered to oversee this audit. The Senate overruled her and reminded her that it is the duty of the Auditor General to oversee the report. SO HOW IS THAT HER RESPONSIBILITY? IT isn’t even the responsibility of the Petroleum Minister even though she is a direct interested party. This man must be intellectually bankrupt to suggest something like this! Instead of summoning the Auditor General or directing the Auditor General to immediately release the full report this man who is supposed to oversee our laws is shooting elsewhere. Ode nie!!!

    • Rommel

      Sometimes I feel sorry for you but when I remember that president Jonathan created a thriving industry in sycophancy much like Obasanjo created in the communication sector,then I realize why you are doing what you are doing

      • Rotimi Lawanson

        Perhaps you must be speaking for yourself. Always cynical and ready to point fingers with your fellow co travelers of pessimism – Tunde Mash, guguru or Ogogoro and Sam

        • john d

          why are you selling your future bro…. you must have a conscience in that heart of yours… that money could transform the health system… you should be angry bro…. money is missing… you should demanding they all come out to explain… or did you help st….

          • Rotimi Lawanson

            Hahaha! I hate to burst your bubble. I am a successful businessman with two masters degrees and a thriving business. I don’t fit your stereotype of a paid agent. I will never be one. I write what i please to write and i have strong convictions based on my Christian beliefs. That is why i will never allow anyone deceive me with useless political statements. Have you ever seen Premium Times write negative articles on Buhari or core APC members?

      • Robert

        Rommel. You are as daft as the name you choose for your posts. APC e-rat. Posting everywhere. You will soon be out of a job. One minute you are on punch, then Sahara then Premium times. Go and look for a real job.

    • Guguru

      Wahala or Rotimi Lawanson,

      Do you sleep with Ngozi? Why do you love to defend her so much? What has she done for you? Why froth at the mouth whenever her name is mentioned? LOL. Wahala or Rotimi, the lover of Ngozi.

      • Robert

        What is your fascination with Ngozi, Mr Guguru? Why the repeated comments about this lady? You have spent your entire morning commenting about this lady. I am really surprised. You must be related to Charles Soludo or one of these failures. Unnecessary fascination. Her success is giving your nightmares abi? Kpele.

        • Guguru

          Wahala or Rotimi,

          Suddenly, you are not as abusive as you were about a few hours ago. Amazing overnight transformation. I ask you, are you married to Ngozi or are you her lover? You want to defend Ngozi but you find it hard to defend Jonathan, right?

    • john d

      another lover of corruption… keep making love to corruption… the baby will be very ugly in the end

      • Rotimi Lawanson

        John Dumb, i don’t love corruption. I love the truth and if you cannot handle the truth and what your constitution says, go and protest it at the National Assembly. If you cannot do that then, please do us a favor and keep quiet.

    • perfectmind

      Why did NOI called for auditioning? Cos it is the duty of the Auditor General to call for auditing and not Finance Minister. Since she was the one that called for auditing, let her face the repercussion

      • Rotimi Lawanson

        It isn’t auditioning please. It is an audit. She called for an audit does not mean she is the one that is responsible for the audit. Please did you even read what i wrote? What is wrong in suggesting the right thing. She cannot face any music because the SENATE already asked her to stay off the issue. If you wanted her to oversee the audit why didn’t you go and protest when the Senate told her that she cannot oversee the audit? Please keep quiet jare you don’t have any point.

      • Robert

        Perfectmind your father obviously sent you to school for nothing. You don’t even know the difference between audit and audition. You are probably watching too many Nollywood movies.

  • sasha

    ,Your talk is cheap Mr whatever you call your self, NOI is an honorable woman she has contributed to the economy system growth in Nigeria,your word does not count,attention seeker,shame on you.

    • john d

    APC errand boy MR Moshood Mustapha, HOW MUCH WERE YOU PAID ?????????NOI will not be a victim to your false allegation and will not be used as a scape goat,you will not destroy her hard earn international reputation

  • tommy

    What is wrong with APC,?has all their members lost their sense of reasoning MR,Moshood Mustapha should just shut up his mouth.

  • bolanle

    you are blaming DR NOI and Alison-Madueke ,No weapon of evil formed against them shall stand

    • john d

      only goodness.. Nigerians are just insane or plain bereft of any moral fiber… didn’t the report say 1.4billion dollars was missing… you know what that kind of money would do for your state or your fellow nigerians…. instead you are binding demons on their behalf… nothing but pure madness if i may say… speechless… or could it be you are just a ….

      • Rotimi Lawanson

        Yes $1.48 billion needs to be refunded by NNPC. But that isn’t Dr. NOI’s issue. She called for an audit remember? So why is this silly man asking her to produce a report that is constitutionally the responsibility of the Auditor General? Have you forgotten that the Senate told her that she cannot oversee the audit because that is the responsibility of the Auditor General. So why is this illiterate APC House of Reps member asking her to produce the report? He doesn’t even know his own constitution and doesn’t even know what his colleagues in the Senate ruled. na wa ooo.

  • johnson

    loud mouth, MR Moshood Mustapha,its funny how some people attack NOI and say bad things to gain cheap publicity,please we should be wise

  • janet

    NOI your enemy must be put to shame Moshood Mustapha should ask the auditor-general? ,to provide the result,NOI is just being targeted for nothing

  • Philex

    Now,madam Ngozi is neck deep in all of this. She may even be the head of that thieving gang. Pity….

    • Rotimi Lawanson

      You don’t even know your constitution. Let me help you. She isn’t responsible for releasing the report. It is the duty of the Auditor General of the Federation just like legal reports and legal matters are handled by the Attorney General of the Federation, Audits and Auditing matters are handled by the Auditor General of the Federation. Don’t let these visionless APC people deceive you. Please ask the House Of Reps member to direct the Auditor General to release the report officially.

  • Guguru

    Ngozi has managed Nigeria’s finances very poorly. Ask yourself: why did Obasanjo ask her to leave his administration?

    • Rotimi Lawanson

      You are a silly fellow. All you do is troll the internet and write negative comments about Ngozi Okonjo Iweala. What have you ever achieved in your miserable life? What have your sisters or your mother achieved? Please shut up! Ignoramus! She left the administration and wasn’t asked to leave. She rose to become Managing Director of the World Bank. She is back again. Whether you, Guguru ati Ogogoro likes it or not, she is the Finance Minister of the largest economy in Africa which is slated to become the 10th largest economy in the world by 2050 according PWC, Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan. So go and hug a transformer if you cannot take it.

      • Guguru

        Wahala aka Rotimi Lawanson,

        When are you goiing to get married to Ngozi? No need for the insults. Just tell us when and where your wedding to Ngozi Iweala will be held. I might even come with a goat and cow to bless your marriage to Ngozi. LOL.

  • true nigerian

    Mr. Rotimi is getting his share out of her loot, so he can die for her.

  • Ken Asiwaju

    As
    civil and educated people, it behoves us to act maturely and responsibly rather
    than resorting to needless name-calling, dirty politics and
    self-aggrandizement. Let’s respond to issues objectively rather than whip up
    unnecessary sentiments. Sir, if you have a personal grouse with the CME, its
    better you resolve it personally and not bring it to public glare

  • Oluwaseyi Adedotun

    Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala should be commended for her dynamic, selfless and professional contribution towards
    revamping the economy. No finance minister in the history of Nigeria has done half as much as she has done. Her wealth of experience at the world bank adequately prepared her to manage a diversified economy such as ours, as such,
    she should be appreciated and not condemned.

  • Bashir Salami

    Nigeria’s progress and development will come about as a collective responsibility and not by pointing accusing fingers at people who painstakingly put in so much effort to see to the growth of the economy. Can we switch from this condemnation mode to appreciation mode?
