President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday, 26th, June, 2012, sacked the Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Austen Oniwon, alongside several top managers of the commission.

The NNPC has been under fire over the massive fraud which has accompanied the fuel subsidy regime between 2009 and 2011. The fraud, about which the last is yet to be heard, has brought a lot of criticism on the president, especially the manner with which he has been handling the situation. The president seems to be changing his approach to this particular, however. The sack of the NNPC chiefs, a statement from the office of the presidency states, is in “furtherance of efforts to achieve greater transparency and accountability in government”.

President Goodluck Jonathan has been – and remains – under intense pressure to implement the recommendations of the report submitted by the house committee set up to investigate the fuel subsidy regime.

Meanwhile, Andrew Yakubu, who was once the group executive director for exploration and production at NNPC, and managing director of the Warri Refining and Petrochemicals Company, has been chosen as the replacement of the sacked GMD.

  1. What about the minister? Why is he trying to spear her? The biggest culprit is jonathan, because he used the Nigeria’s money to campaign and bribe during his electionary programme. Jonathan is too corrupt to my liking. How can corruption fight corruption?

  2. An adage says no matter what you do you can not satisfy the world if Mr President did not sack them ppl will say he doesn’t have action now he sacked them you ppl are still accussing him why cant we allow this man concentrate to be able to actualise his mandate for God sake.

  3. Oga GEJ, when will u be tired of playing politice with the futures of Nigerians? If u know u cannot be sincere to urself and the poor Nigerians who are paying through their nose just to see ordinary GARRI eat at least just once in a day, why can’t u majestically walked out of the office and let sleeping dog lie? For ur information, Nigerians are becoming much aware of the happenings in Nigeria. And let me still inform u that Nigerian poor masses are the easiest to pleased in the entire globe. If only u can use ur church mind to work and bring those of ur promises up to 10% fulfilment, I tell u, u receive the highest award from Nigerians. But with this ur style, hmmmm. I no sure say e go work o. How can a man who is caught for obtaining #1000 under fraudulent intents be prisoned and sometimes dead by hanging. But the individuals who have been the main source of sorrows to Nigerians through their inimical activities of defrauding the nation’s treasury be merely sacked? Where is the language and actions of sacked, arrested, prosecuted and executed be fitted into if not in cases like this? How can u say u wants to fight corruption and u’re been pressured to implement the oil subsidy probe reports. Use ur head please.

  4. @Vincent. I don’t blame u bros. An adage says ‘he who do not know where the rain began to beat him, will definately not know where it will end on him’. By ur comment I want to believe u’re completely deformed about the activities of our political leaders in this country. They are into the games of ‘the more u look, the less u see’ robbing Peter to pay Paul. Maybe u still have something left in ur pocket and bank acc. Or better still, u’re one of them robbing the nation 2day.
