Abuja - Some pipeline security and surveillance contractors under former President Goodluck Jonathan have threatened to sue President Muhammadu Buhari if his government fails to settle the debt the past government was owing them, reports NewsDay.
The contractors, which include former Niger-Delta militant leader Asari Dokubo and the leader of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) in a petition to Buhari on Monday urged him to compel the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to pay them for the period they secured the nation’s oil pipeline from vandals.

They noted that they decided to write Buhari to intervene because of their firm belief in Buhari’s promise during his inauguration that he belongs to everybody.
They noted that if Buhari fails to compel NNPC to redeem the contractual obligation it had with them, they would be left with no choice but to take the government to court.
They added that they are in possession of valid and duly signed contract agreements with the NNPC to back up their claims.
Buhari had upon assumption of office on May 29 cancelled the pipeline security and surveillance contract.
