I’ll Fish Out Subsidy Thieves In A Week - Ribadu by OAM4J: 8:34pm On Jul 10, 2012
The former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Malam Nuhu Ribadu, on Tuesday boasted that he will fish out the petroleum subsidy thieves within one week if given the task by the Federal Government.

He blamed the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency for all the atrocities perpetrated in the management of the fund, saying the agency released the funds and did not account for it.

He submitted that as an intelligent chief he would simply check their letters of credit and bill of landing to bring all those who benefited from the subsidy to justice.

Ribadu, who spoke at the Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission in Abuja, said all the regulatory irregularities in Nigeria are due to “leadership failure.”

His words: “Look at the energy sector and see what we are talking about. Most of the problems we are talking about today are failure of regulation or regulators including the subsidy. If PPPRA had lived up to expectations we would not be having these problems. Nobody will take one penny from government if those agencies did not allow them.

“If I was to handle this subsidy I will just catch PPPRA. I will bring out each one of them and in one week I will get the people responsible because the gate keeper is the one in charge.

“I will just get them because nobody will make one penny from the subsidy unless PPPRA allows it. For every single person that benefited from subsidy I can assure you public officers gained three times,” Ribadu stated.

He added that the NERC Chairman, Dr. Sam Amadi, needs “courage” to carry out the reform in the power sector.

What has he been doing all these while?

where is the result of the job he and his committee were already asked to do?

He was given 60 days to complete the job, it's more than 120 days already yet no report.

This is where I have a problem with Ribadu; The Mallam talks too much. Why not face your own task b4 telling us what you'll do over a task you weren't given when the entire nation is eagerly awaiting the report of your own task? Haba Mallam!

If every one of you is told to name corrupt Nigerians you have known,I bet RIbadu will not be on most of your lists and for some die hard critics,he will be on the back page......most of you making noise on this thread cannot stand beside him in the council of people with clean hands. The man has said what he believes he can do and Nigerians should not doubt him,he has a track record and non of your paymasters can hold a light to him.

Fishing out thieves are not the problem.

Punishing them is the problem.

After all we all know the 2 biggest thieves Obasanjo and IBB, but they are walking around free men.

Ribadu’s achievements in the EFCC included the
de-listing of Nigeria from the FATF List of Non- Cooperative Countries & Territories, admission
into the prestigious Egmont Group and the withdrawal of the US Treasury FINCEN Advisory on Nigeria. They helped make the EFCC the foremost
Anti-Corruption Enforcement Agency on the
continent, cementing Ribadu's reputation in the
world as a respected anti-corruption crusader. Nuhu Ribadu's evidence helped prosecute foreign
businesses who offered bribes while doing business in Nigeria.

What he can or can't do isn't the issue here, we very well know his abilities and that's why he was given a task which is already weeks late and counting. So why on earth would he start boasting about his ability to complete someone else's task in a week when he's not done with his? in saying he can do this in a week what's he implying when some other committee has been on it for a number of weeks now? Have u seen sense now or are u still thinking like the talkative Mallam?

the mallam is right,the agency responsible for disbursing the subsidy funds should be held accountable for not verifying the amount of petroleum products imported before payment,because me thinks ppra is neck deep with this subsidy thieves.
