Chairman of EN’Adikwu Petroleum Limited, Col John Ubah (retd), has urged the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption to hasten its response to his application of corruption charge in a suit pending in Kaduna High Court. Ubah had petitioned the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption over misconduct in his suit No KDH/KAD/492/02 EN’Adikwu Petroleum Limited vs Lawrence Enyesiobi and fi ve others.
According to the ex-military administrator of Kebbi state, he had on November 21, 2016, forwarded an application to the Director General, Department of State Security (DSS) and is disturbed that nothing has been done with no action taken nor response given. “I wrote a reminder to my appeal and is still surprised that six months after not an action has been taken. Th is is in reference to my appeal for re-assignment of the stated suit from Kaduna High Court of Justice 10 to another Court,” he said.
He emphasised that a follow up reference letter of appeal dated May 11, 2017, was sent to the offi ce of the Advisory Committee Against Corruption in Abuja and he was amazed that “nothing has been heard till now.” He added that he is surprised that after making a genuine report of corruption to appropriate authorities and the acknowledgment of the Presidential Committee on Corruption of a receipt of the letter (report) he wrote dated December 7, 2016, the DSS was yet to treat the report. “To me, this (inaction) is aimed at frustrating my report of corruption in my case stated earlier.”
