FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

At a time Nigeria is roughly at a standstill due to atrocities of corruption of some individuals, which were “celebrated” in the previous government, we received with outright denunciation, news report in today’s Punch Newspapers of Thursday, 28th April, 2016, that; part of suspected looted funds in hard currency, were traced by the Economic and Finance Crimes Commission (EFCC) to a particular bank that had some civil society groups in the country, which monitored the last elections, among those that benefitted from such a squandamanic slush. It is commendable to see EFCC tackles the monster of corruption with the belligerence so deserves, as corruption has killed millions, while many are rendered hopeless in a country that wealth can go round…

In view of the fact that corruption hasn’t spared any sector of Nigeria’s survival disequilibrium, we hereby, request the EFCC to urgently publish the list of the said civil society organizations that were involved in this national shame. Such groups must also refund the money so collected, along with prosecution, without the excuses of (any) claiming, they were not aware the money was from national treasury. We have noticed earlier, that some NGOs that benefitted from “procurements” at the ONSA were published along with other “beneficiaries”. EFCC should do same on the “Election Monitors”. We are not surprised to hear about this concerning election observation in the country. But Nigerians, majority, who are victims of corruption must bond together to salvage the country and give hope to the upcoming generation. The country has finally entered the era of show me your friend, i will tell you, who you are!

Even as excruciating suffering is hitting on the masses daily, with years of cancerous corruption partly responsible for magnitude of sufferings, the governing government of this moment needs to run with realistic remedies and not experimental sampling.  It is necessary to further state, that curiously, Nigerians are observing MTN’s penalty deflectors evolving, including persons associated with it. Nigerians are no fools!

Finally, NDEBUMOG is not impressed about the mind boggling figures, which the NDDC is said to be indebted to hundreds of contractors to the tuned of hundreds of billions for capital projects, without measureable infrastructural justification for such huge debts. All Niger Deltans should begin to ponder on the fact, a lot of Nigerians, are beginning to see the region’s problem as caused mostly by people of the region. NDDC should, therefore, begin a pro-people (redemptive) process at salvaging the region through synergies with other stakeholders. The global sympathy for the region’s woes is waning and it should not be lost.
