Alleged financial, administrative misconducts in NIMASA, NPA worries APC chieftain

An All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain, Dr Garus Gololo, has expressed concern over an alleged financial and administrative misconducts in the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) and the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA).

Gololo in a media briefing in Abuja Wednesday, appealed to President Bola Tinubu to quickly heed to the advice of Nigerians by sacking the NPA MD Mohammed Bello Koko and the MD of NIMASA Ibrahim Jamoh,for flaunting FG public service rules.

Dr. Gololo, further, noted that so many things have gone wrong in the past and still going wrong presently in NIMASA and NPA.

Gololo said, “It worries me that when Adisa Bala Usman was sacked from Nigeria Ports Authority, NPA, Mohammed Koko took over in acting capacity and four years down the line we are still seeing the same person who began in acting capacity as the Managing Director of the NPA.”

He said that Adisa Bala Usman, was sacked due to corruption related offences. Yet the case ended like that, “as you can see, there was no investigation, no prosecution only for us to see her again back at the corridor of power under the present administration. “

Further speaking, Dr Gololo alleged that Nigeria can better be described as a place where those who steal public funds rule those who make the money

“you see this is getting out of hand my opinion, is that before anyone takes a fresh appointment, he or she must be careful investigated thoroughly with the involvement of all the anti graft agencies.

” And if found worthy, why not the person can be reappointed. But if we fail to get it right this time, we are headed to nowhere. And I am no longer certified with what DSS and EFCC are doing in terms of investigation of government appointees and always given them clean bill of health”.

The APC, Chieftain, has observed that the same thing goes to NIMASA MD Ibrahim Jamoh, who had also over stayed his welcome, should quietly and honourably take a bow and go “He was brought in to NIMASA by his inlaw Tunde, he wasn’t even appointed by the president then.

These are the people who looted this country and made Nigeria to be one of the most indepted Nation in the whole world . This is tax payers money I was expecting a total probe of Ministers who worked with former President Buhari, to come out and tell us what they did during this 8 years of administration”.

The APC Chieftain, further reiterated that Nigerians should be made to know how they performed through a forensic auditing.

However, he said that ethnicity, religion, made millions of Nigeria chose to die in silence under excruciating pain.

“Nigerians are mostly the problems themselves. No one is ready to come out and speak like I am doing now. Everyone sits back to protect his religion or ethnic background. I am a Fulani man from Bauchi State but that cannot make me to advocate for bad governance and anything that would aid corruption just because of covering up my brother from same ethnic background or religion. I want Mr. President to heed to this advice. He has listening ears and that would save Nigeria a lot in future.
