Probe panel: My membership call to national duty - Udom

20 July 2015, 11:13 Jackson Udom

Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State has described his recent appointment into a four-man Committee to scrutinize the accounting records of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) as a call to duty which transcends party partisanship.

The Governor stated this at Ibom International Airport on his arrival from the Presidential Villa where he was inaugurated into the Committee by the Vice President Prof. Yemi Osibanjo.

In a chat with Government House Correspondents the State Chief Executive said he was committed to deliver on the assigned responsibility by President Muhammadu Buhari as he had earlier swore to an oath to serve the Country.

He explained that the President just like himself was elected to serve the people and that Political Party only serve as a springboard for them to provide quality leadership and deliver democratic dividends to the people.

His words: “What should be uppermost in our minds is: are we delivering the dividends of democracy to the people? This is what the President stands for and you know when I also took over office, I pledged my total loyalty to the President, I pledged to work very well with the President. I see a President who is ready to work and who is willing to work”.

The Committee is to unravel the 3.8 trillion naira not remitted to the Federation Account from 2012 to May 2015 as well as $2.1 billion said to have been deducted from the Excess Crude Account by the Petroleum Corporation.

Governor Udom Emmanuel is to work in the committee alongside Zamfara State Governor Abdulazeez Yari, Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomele and Governor of Kaduna State Nasir El-Rufai.
