Senator calls for Petroleum Minister’s resignation

By on February 8, 2012

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Privatisation and Commercialisation, Gbenga Obadara has called for resignation of the Minister for Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Allison-Madueke, to allow fair probe into the ministry’s activities.

Obadara who represents Ogun Central Senatorial District, spoke in Abeokuta, yesterday, after  a visit to his constituency. He said   the Petroleum Minister, should step aside as to pave way for a genuine probe of the ministry under her watch.

He said:  “The woman is not supposed to be on that seat pending the outcome of investigations into  activities of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.

“I am not saying that she is guilty but from the series of revelations coming from the probe, she is not innocent, she ought to resign honourably as a decent person.

“I think when speaking of corruption, it is her ministry that is highly endemic in that aspect, so let her go or be  re-assigned by the President  to a less sensitive ministry, if Mr. President still wants her in his cabinet.

“In these days when the clamour for probity and accountability are being demanded  from  our public office holders. Nigerians expect  Mr. President to have asked the Petroleum Minister  to step aside over the oil subsidy removal scam.

”The Petroleum Minister must leave office,at least for now to clear herself. That is what is obtainable in civilised societies of the world.”

    Man there is only one policy in Nigeria and that is “Dishonesty is the best policy”

    These people are immune to the shocks the average nigerian faces and so do not care for your rant
