JUST IN: P&ID Scandal: Court grants bail to former petroleum ministry director
September 25, 2019Evelyn Okakwu
The Federal Capital Territory High Court has granted bail to a former director of legal affairs at Nigeria’s petroleum ministry, Grace Taiga, who was arraigned for alleged involvement in the controversial Process and Industrial Development (P&ID) contract with Nigeria.


The court in a ruling on Wednesday said the prosecution failed to provide sufficient reasons why the defendant should not be granted bail.

Mrs Taiga had been accused of facilitating the controversial contract and securing gratification of over $20,000 while she served at the ministry in 2010.

The contract between Nigeria and P&ID, an Irish firm, resulted in a $9 billion judgement debt against Nigeria by a court in the United Kingdom.

The court said Mrs Taiga should nonetheless not leave the country without first informing the court.

She is also expected to inform her sureties if she has any need to travel for her medication.

Mrs Taiga’s lawyer, Ola Olanikpekun, said the defendant has chronic diabetes and has battled high blood pressure among other illnesses.

Justice Olukayode Adeniyi, however, ruled that it would not make any order for Mrs Taiga to submit her international passport because of her health condition.

Why would you laugh at Buhari ?
You are not a patriot. That is a treasonable offence, the kwaraption fighters will come after you now.

.......The way they are making noise everywhere about this matter, you would think they only just got to know about it last month, when they've had all of four years and some months to have settled the matter better in Nigerias favour when the terms ( contrived or real) were not this stringent

She is one of the conspirators that connived with the Late Rilwanu Lukeman to MILK the nation.

I wish human can wake up the dead, Alhaji Rilwanu Lukeman is supposed to face trial.

The same goes with Late General Sani Abacha.

GOD JUDGEMENT IS WAITING FOR THEM !
