NLNG Fund, Group Exposes Oshiomhole, Apc Lies: Honourable Clem Aguiyi by Ridwanna(m): 8:20am On Jul 14, 2015
NATIONAL Coordinator of ‘Move on Nigeria’, Honourable
Clem Aguiyi, has accused the All Progressives Congress
(APC) and the Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomole,
of deliberately misleading the public on issues
surrounding the NLNG Fund.

Aguiyi vowed that his group, a socio- political and civic
action group, supporting democracy and good
governance, would continue to expose APC lies, no
matter how many times such lies were repeated,
because the public deserved to know the truth.
He warned that APC would soon lie its way into trouble
with Nigerians, except it learnt to respect facts.
“Truth is sacred and no one can lie to the people all the
time without being caught one day. The ‘Change’ we
need now is for the ruling party to change from minting
and spreading outright falsehood to saying the truth,”
he said.

In a release issued to newsmen on Monday, in Abuja,
Aguiyi said the truth which was verifiable, was that the
NLNG had been on a 10-year tax haven until 2014.
Within the period, successive governments, right from
former president Olusegun Obasanjo down to former
president Goodluck Jonathan neither shared nor
tampered with the cumulative dividends.

“Whatever taxes paid from the NLNG go through the
Federal Inland Revenue Services (FIRS) and recorded as
part of the income of the Federal Government.
“ It is imperative to note that by the end of the tenure
of Jonathan, NLNG dividends had risen to cumulative
$5.6 billion and not a single cent was ever taken from
the funds in the entire six years of the Jonathan-led
administration,” he said.

He challenged the ruling party to present contrary
evidence that NLNG was not on tax holiday until 2014,
any evidence that either of the regimes of Obasanjo or
Yar’adua tampered or shared revenues accumulating
from NLNG taxes or proof that the Jonathan-led
administration removed a dime from $5.6 billion that
accumulated during the life of the regime.

“It is rather unfortunate that our highly revered
president is allowing himself to be drawn into such
misinformation because he would have been properly
briefed, assuming he has his economic advisers and
cabinet in place as they would have rightly briefed him
rather than exposing himself to mischief of some
individuals, who are bent on distracting the public from
probing into their own massive corruption.

“Imagine governors who spent public funds on lavish
parties, borrowed beyond their capacities, squandered
capital and security votes while also embezzling
pensions fund and workers salary talking ignorantly of
subjects they knew little or nothing about.
“While it is within the right of APC-led Federal
Government to deplete the treasury without considerable
thought as part of their Change agenda, Aguiyi said it
was wicked and uncharitable for them to maliciously
demonise and criminalise the former administration that
saved and left the funds intact for ‘rainy day’ and for
the attendant future investments and financial
obligations of Nigeria in the NLNG project.

According to Aguiyi, “it is a long time since President
Buhari first left office as military head of state, Nigeria
and the world has transformed a lot since then and it is
possible the man is confused of what foot to put
forward , hence he needs good brains and good hands,
instead of working alone and leading the nation to no
where in particular.

“I will encourage APC to persuade the president to
appoint his cabinet, so as to avail himself with expert
advice on various issues” he quipped.

From the time JEG conceded defeat to the time Buhari was sworn in, he ought to have atleast identified ministers for critical ministries like Finance, Education, and Health and then we can wait for the rest till now.

How we don't have atleast a minister of finance as at now is not good at all, is he not getting advise from anyone?

The funny thing now is someone else will come challenge this position with another claim and we continue to go round in circles.
