A group, Niger Delta Indigenous Movement for Radical Change, has debunked allegation of gross misconduct leveled against the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, and the Group General Manager of the National Petroleum Investment Management Services, Mr. Dafe Sejebor.
An online medium had recently reported that the NAPIMS boss and Kachikwu were pressuring oil giant, Addax Petroleum, to purchase a building allegedly owned by businessman, Mr. Jide Omokore for US$48 Million above the asking price.
But the oil monitoring group dismissed the accusation against the minister and the NAPIMS boss, giving them a clean bill of health and condemning the online news medium.
Speaking with our correspondent in Warri, the President of NDIMRC, Nelly Emma, exonerated the minister and the NAPIMS boss of allegations against them, saying that some elements who never wished them well were only out to tarnish the good image of the two government officials.
According to Emma, “Our findings have shown that Mr. Dafe Sejebor, NAPIMS boss, is innocent of the accusation against him that he is pressuring Addax Petroleum to purchase a building for its Headquarters for US$115million, while the building is priced at US$67million. There is no iota of truth in this allegation. It is also not true that our credible group accused Mr. Sejebor of corruption in July this year. We never at no time accused him of corruption as we have no reason to do so.
“In July, this group passed vote of confidence onthe NAPIMS boss, Dafe Sejebor, when he was wrongly accused of corruption and marginalisation by one Terry, who claimed at the time to be writing on behalf of the Urhobo Youth Council Worldwide. We never accused him of corruption and therefore, Sahara Reporters should stop feeding members of the public with lies. To the best of our knowledge, NAPIMS under the watch of Mr. Dafe Sejebor has been very transparent and he should be encouraged by all and sundry”, the group said.
