Why Some People Want Me Out Of Petroleum Ministry – Deziani by aare07(m): 4:26pm On Nov 08, 2012
The Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Deziani Allison-
Maduekwe, Thursday, attributed the unrelenting attack on
her office to those she said had been frustrated from
continuing with their nefarious deals in the petroleum
sector of the economy.In an interview in Abuja on
Thursday, the minister said those who have no skeleton in
their cupboards need not be afraid of the reforms in the
sector as it was meant to benefit all Nigerians.
“A vast majority of Nigerians are happy with Mr. President
for the far reaching decisions his administration has taken
to stabilise the sector.
“Those fighting the government in the media are doing so
because we have been able to frustrate their efforts in
strangulating the economy through their devilish black
market and questionable profiteering at the expense of the
Nigeria people.
“I would not want to join issues with those criticising me
because they are crying foul that through us Mr. President
has broken the old order where things are done without
“What is hurting them is that we have put policies in place
where they can no longer cheat the government and cause
untold hardship for millions of Nigerians” she said.
According to her, no amount of blackmail would stop her
from continuing to pursue the transformation agenda of
President Goodluck Jonathan in the oil and gas sector.
She reiterated that the few individuals angling for her sack
were doing so because she has refused to continue the
‘business as usual’ tradition in the sector of the economy.
She vowed that never
again will the
government allow the
return of the age-long
cartel in the country’s
oil and gas sector,
adding that despite the
unjustified criticism
and unfounded
allegations against her,
her greatest joy is that
majority of Nigerians
appreciate the good work her ministry and agencies are
doing to reposition the oil and gas sector.
According to her, operators and stakeholders in the oil
and gas sector that have the interest of Nigeria and
Nigerians at heart need not be afraid of her leadership
While commending the cordial relationship between her
and top officials of the Ministry, including those of the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC),
Petroleum Pricing and Marketing Company (PPMC),
Directorate of Petroleum Resources (DPR) and other
parastatals of the Ministry, Mrs Allison-Madukwe explained
it was the harmonious relationship that has brought about
the high level successes by government in the sector.
She solicited the co-operation of Nigerians, oil companies
and other investors at all times to achieve Mr President’s
objectives for the sector, and commended the leadership
of various union in the sector for standing by President
Jonathan in the ongoing reforms of the sector.

This woman should not bore us with her lies. Wasn't
it during her time that brief case companies were
given licenses to import petroleum products thereby defrauding the country? How many NNPC, DPR and PPPRA staff have been sacked for conniving with thieving importers to perpetuate the subsidy scam? Didn't she allocate oil blocs to her cronies ie Seven Energy and co? Where is the signatory bonus from the three oil blocs she allocated? Are these what she calls transforming the sector.
A minister who doesn't know the quantity of
petroleum products consumed daily and her tenure
is witnessing an unimaginable crude oil theft should be sacked ASAP. GEJ will be doing himself more harm if he doesn't dispose off this woman from his Government except if the rumour of her dalliance with him is true
