How sure are we that El Rufai's facebook account hasn't been hacked! This post is miles apart from his stereotypical facebook/twitter comments.Just saying!

ndu_chucks: Mallam El-Rufai, missed the involvement of Mr. President in this scandal, like most people. He missed the following, buried in published reports:



The red text above must be the real reason why Nnaji left his position abruptly. The President himself was going to benefit from the deal because Nnaji's company was buying shares for the President. When that fact was exposed, Nnaji had to be sacrifised, if not GEJ himself would have been in big soup.

Bunch of Barawos. These people act as if there are no real people behind blind trusts, thieves hiding behind proxies.

Alj Haram , why would you always read write-ups from down up , when OBJ was buying Nicon HIlton hotel and Refinaries through chinese firms did you do anything, GEJ and Nnaji could have done the same but Nnaji show how Transparent he is, beside You forgot his company has already Bidded for them before he become a minister.
Aboki reason small na, Can Hausa man resign from his post, never he will tell you that the company belong to his grandfather while he just managing it grin, yet Bart Nnnaji is not the 1st Igbo to do that. Dora, Ngozi, Ezekwesili also did.we keep our integrity cool

His resignation is a set-back for the power sector reforms. He is one of the few ministers in GEJ's cabinet that knows what need doing in his area of ministerial responsibility. The whole thing was clearly avoidable.
Well done Mallam, I seem to agree with you albeit speculative in nature cos of the limited information we have.

This is hoping your new found respect and calmness lasts longer.

what makes you feel that you more intelligent than the cow/cattle?if el rufai is a cattle rearer then you are the cattle dung;because it is the cow that bring both the dung and the rearer together. unfortuately, the cattle rearer will always march on the cattle dung, this will make you an eternal slave to the cattle rearer.

Now it is becoming obvious that this malam has realized how disgusting he appears before Nigerians and he's trying to be civil.. Well, it is never too late to repent of your evil... But it will take a very longtime of being reasonable and PR to launder his self battered image... However, GEJ has an open arm and a very forgiving heart and the last time I checked the umbrella was still wide enough to accommodate even deviants like him... The earlier the better

You are certainly not an epitome of sharpness of mind or brilliance and I don’t have time to train you here. It suffices to say that there is no ambiguity in the fact that Nnaji was using his company as a proxy to buy shares on behalf of the President (GEJ) in Afam power station through the privatization process.

This act did not take place before Nnaji became minister, olodo. Do you now see why Nnaji had to go abruptly? Note that the President has said nothing about selling his shares in the said company. Bunch of Barawos.

The only way for the President to protect himself, after the scheme was exposed was to play dumb and act as if the whole affair was engineered by Nnaji alone. Soon enough the press and certainly NASS will start asking for more details on the whole affair.

@Billyonaire, you go soon fall my hand, at the rate you are going. You don’t want to engage me in this new scandal of the President’s – you’d do more harm than good to your superstar and uncle, if you do.

you seem to be the only one that got the whole scenario right, rufai is only playing politics, having seen how ppl now attack him on social media , he is now taking the more careful approach which might make him warm his way back into the hearts of ppl and from what i can see opr deduce from ppls write ups, i think the trick is working fine . nigerians will always fall for the cheapest political trick in the book

I DON'T AGREE WITH THE RESPECTED NASIR ON SOME OF HIS POSITIONS. I DON'T SEE ANY WRONGDOING ON BARTH NNAJI'S SIDE. NNAJI DISCLOSED HIS INTEREST IN THE COMPANIES BIDDIING FOR PHCN. HE HAD ALSO RESIGNED HIS DIRECTORSHIP IN THOSE COMPANIES PRIOR TO HIS APPOINTMENT. I DON'T SEE ANY CONFLICT OF INTEREST THERE. NASIR, ON THE OTHER HAND, APPROVED THE ALLOCATION OF PLOTS OF LAND TO HIS WIVES WHILE HE WAS MINISTER OF FCT. THAT'S CONFLICT OF INTEREST AND A BLOT ON NASIR'S DISTINGUISHED CARRER. NNAJI WAS FORCED OUT BECAUSE HE WAS PREVENTING THE FUEL AND GENERATOR IMPORTERS FROM BUSINESS AS USUAL.

Nasir is more opportunistic than any other thing on this issue. He knows how Nigerians feel about Nnaji and the power sector reforms and he just wants to cash in on that to boost his battered approval rating. I know his type they cant fool me at all.

torkaka: On Barth Nnaji's Resignation

I think the issue boils down to poor judgment on the part of Barth. Since the days of TCPC, there exists a Code of Ethics prohibiting members of the Board of TCPC and staff from acquiring assets being privatized.

In 2000, the National Council on Privatization approved stricter Code of Ethics prohibiting staff of BPE and members of NCP from participating in any way in privatization transaction. As DG of BPE between 1999 and 2003, I went further and stopped buying any shares on the NSE to prevent any signalling to the market.

Barth Nnaji ought to be aware of this, and withdrew his firm or its associates from further participation in any consortium participating as consultants or bidders to any privatization transaction, electricity related or not, the moment he was appointed minister of power, and therefore a co-opted member of the NCP. Perhaps he was unaware of this Code which BPE as the secretariat of NCP is obliged to draw attention to for the guidance of all council members.

His resignation is a set-back for the power sector reforms. He is one of the few ministers in GEJ's cabinet that knows what need doing in his area of ministerial responsbility. The whole thing was clearly avoidable.

There are many ministers far less competent than Barth and under whose watch massive fraud, corruption and more serious crimes have been committed. Yet, they continue to sit pretty and not asked to resign.

[/b]Perhaps, there is more than this ethical infraction. I do not know, but if what we read is all there is, both the ex-minister and his employer could have handled it better and in a more orderly manner.

You are certainly very sharp, by living and dwelling on allegations on a man his integrity is glaring. And pls just like billyonaire told you dont read and comment with sentiment, read to get the facts 1st, my candid advice. If insatiable el-rufai can say this then ur allegation do not hold any water, all we want is to have power generated and this man was doing just that.
