EFCC to Probe Yar’Adua Administration

In the course of the ongoing investigation into the fuel subsidy management fiasco, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has extended its probing arms into the administration of the late President, Umaru Yar’Adua.

As part of its investigation, the commission is intent on calling in former government officials in petroleum-related fields and former general managers of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation. The decision was made in a bid to trace the massive web of corruption rapidly unraveling in the oil and gas sectors to its root cause(s) and to procure necessary evidence to prosecute the “guilty parties”.

Reliable sources within the EFCC have stated that the investigations will be carried out with efficiency and will not be rushed for quick results. Declining to release the names of the former officials invited to the interrogatory panel, the source stated that there were no “sacred cows” in the investigation, adding that the operatives of the commission had been visiting oil installations in recent times in a bid to carry out a thorough investigation.

In other news relating to the fuel subsidy investigation, the current Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, has accused the House committee in charge of probing the oil subsidy of being unfair to her, pointing out that the charges leveled against her were actions she had inherited from her predecessor. The Political Adviser to the President, Alhaji Ali Gullack, has also supported this claim, saying that the report lacked credibility and  alleging that the probe was targeted at some individuals.

  • EFCC is indeed a funny network of lousy people. Why pursue the dead while allowing the living to rotten. If they must disturb the ghost of late Presido Yar dua they should as while dust up the ghost of Abacha, and all dead looters? I like to suggest they concentrate on the living looters – by freezeing the a/cs of OBJ, IBB, BUHARI – if he has any,, IBORI, UDUAGHAN,AMAECHI, ALL PDP, ACN, ANPP, APGA, EXECUTIVES, LEGISLATURES, JUDICIARY, and any Nigerian citizen/resident with dormant millions savings/assets especially DANGOTES, TINUBUS, ATIKUS, BANKOLES, ORJI UZORS, ODILIS, etc

  • Is it possible to pick an object that fell into water without touching the water? Was jonathan not part of the administration? Why do we say what we can not do? Nigeria government is playing a football in a rectangular field without goal post for a target. Subsidy money was spent on 2011 PDP presidential electionary campaign.
