Reps Panel Uncovers Another Set Of Hidden Rice In Lagos by potent5(m): 8:32am On Nov 16, 2018
HOUSE of Representatives committee probing the fraud in National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, has discovered another set of rice hidden in a warehouse in Lagos.

This came barely 24 hours after the House released pictures of over 162,000 bags of rice, donated to the federal government by the Chinese government for the benefit of internally displaced persons, IDPs, in the North East, found to have gone rotten in a warehouse in Gombe State. A statement by chairman of the committee, Ali Isa J.C, read: “The committee has further discovered that hundreds of metric tons of the Chinese donated rice have been kept under lock and key in a private warehouse in Lagos under questionable circumstances. “We are intensifying efforts to unravel the mystery surrounding how the rice was diverted from the ports to the said warehouse instead of being transported directly to the affected states for onward distribution to IDPs who are dying of hunger, starvation and malnutrition.

“The committee wants to use this opportunity to alert members of the public to watch out and be careful so that they don’t buy or consume the rotten rice which will pose great risk to their health. It was also gathered that Director General of NEMA, Mustapha Maihaja, has taken desperate steps to evacuate the unwholesome grains from Gombe State. Vanguard learned that no fewer than 6,779 metric tons of rice, which translates into 271 trucks and approximately 162,696 bags of rice was surreptitiously moved on Wednesday in a desperate bid by the DG to mitigate public outrage against him and his agency for allowing such quantity of food meant for IDPs in the North East to be wasted along with huge public funds.

A top National Assembly source connected with the probe said the NEMA DG and his Director Relief Services arrived in Gombe early Wednesday to hurriedly commence evacuation of the expired rice from the warehouse. But spokesman of NEMA, Sani Datti, has debunked the claims by the Reps that the whole consignment of rice donated by China to Nigeria was still in its custody. “It is not that we kept the rice. We distributed it directly to the beneficiaries and you know the rice is large in quantity,” Datti, said.

APC is finished. Imagine holding on Dasuki for allegedly embezzling money meant for weapons to fight insurgents in Northeast only for them to turn around and make the situation worse. The APC has converted the northeast to money making venture. Either they are cutting grass with millions of Naira or cornering food meant for the IDPs. Na wa o.

This country will find it difficult to move forward. Jubril's promise of large production of rice by Nigerian farmers is a poo. We are not ready yet for development. Keeping those rice meant for idp's who seriously need it is the greatest height of wickedness. Shame on that pastor Osinbajo.

So, the Pastor is supposed to be carrying the bags of rice on his head and distributing them from house to house. The people in charge are thieves, period. Leave Pastor Professor SAN out of this.

Yet this cache of donated rice was deliberately allowed to incurred a corrupt self-inflicted landing, demurrage and transportation costs by officials of the government of the day yet the commodity was never distributed to the IDPs who desperately need them despite the agonizing reports Nigerians have been hearing about life in these camps. undecided undecided

Even the ban of imported rice by Buhari was to cause hardship on Nigerians. The seized rice still find their way into the market. Yet, rice is still expensive.

I implore Atiku to please open the borders when he is President.

Buhari is a failure

I suspect it is hidden for re-bagging and eventual usage for Buhari/Osinbajo's campaign.
Corruption swimming, dinning and sleeping with this administration. Let them keep deceiving themselves and their zombies.
