Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, has called for the immediate sack of the Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Engr. Mele Kyari, over his complicity in the alleged $2.5billion stolen crude oil sold in China.

An online news platform recently revealed that about 48 million barrels of Nigeria’s Bonny Light Crude, valued at $2.5 billion was stolen, sold in China and the proceed was allegedly shared by some top officials of the present administration.

Frank had in a statement following the revelation last week, called for the immediate arrest, investigation and prosecution of all those involved in the sale and diversion of the proceeds of the crude oil.

The political activist in a statement in Abuja on Monday specifically called for the sack and prosecution of Kyari following new evidence concerning his central role in the diversion of the nation’s common wealth as published by the same online portal.

Frank insisted that the new damning facts, laced with documentary evidence, only goes to show that the corruption level in the APC-led federal government, stinks to the skies with the President, General Muhammadu Buhari, being silent and unfortunately giving the impression of his complicity.

He expressed total disgust with the General Buhari-led government and accused it of being determined to cover up the theft of the $2.5 billion crude “despite the expose’ of this wicked and criminal act against Nigeria and Nigerians which has opened the country to international ridicule and shame.”

He urged the Government of the United States and all well-meaning nations to immediately call and impress it on General Buhari that the perpetrators of this dastardly act of criminality concerning the stolen $2.5 billion crude oil sold in China should be immediately arrested and prosecuted.

He described it as absurd for the perpetrators to have carried out the heist under the watchful eyes of General Buhari who doubles as the Minister of Petroleum Resources and also carries the toga of Africa’s No. 1 Anti-Corruption Crusader.

He noted that based on the attempt by the Buhari-led government to suppress the “exposed”, the online platform has further released more damning evidence about the sleaze which comprised of the letters and messages exchanged between the NNPC, officials the federal government and the legal representative of the whistleblower, SAMANO SA DE CV.

He insisted that Kyari should not be allowed to spend another 24 hours as GMD of NNPC, following the release of a throve of such damning evidence that are currently in public domain.

“The NNPC GMD has so many explanations to give to Nigerians as to the whereabouts or otherwise of the purported stolen $2.5billion crude oil sold in China.

“Kyari has to provide answers to this weighty allegations and Buhari’s refusal to order for an immediate investigation, which should trigger a suspension or sack of the NNPC GMD, by remaining silent can only mean acquiescence and complicity in the $2.5billion crude theft,” Frank said.

The new evidence as released, disclosed how the whistleblower wrote to the NNPC GMD on the crude theft and his request for the payment of his compensation for having blown the lid on the illegal sale of the 48million barrels of stolen crude oil in line with the whistleblower policy of the Federal Government.

“Nigerians must stand up now to ask questions as it concerns the theft and sale of the stolen crude oil and the whereabouts of the $2.5 billion proceeds,” Frank declared.

2023 , IBB Youth O’Clock and the Call for Forthrightness

Ngozi Alaegbu was the star of that Arise Tv interview for two reasons, the first was the razor sharp and fearless questions she threw at the General.

And the second, the incisive manner and poise that got the General talking, infact the General spoke albeit frankly on several issues ranging from the banality of partisan politics in Nigeria to the failure of his generation, from the prevalence of corruption in his time to the Olympic status of corruption in the present, and from the absence of Justice in this clime to the imperativeness of resource control and true fiscal federalism, call it restructuring, if you like.

But one subject the General parried like he always does was Youth O’Clock and the call for a new republic come 2023. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida IBB was clear in ruling out citizens Atiku Abubakar and Ahmed Tinubu as worthy candidates in the 2023 power contestation. But IBB maradonically threw up a twist, he called for a new generation of leaders and yet muddled the waters by talking about a leader in his 60s. Still the Maradona, the Evil Genius you may say.

One tread ran through that interesting interview, and that is the call for a new Republic, for a new generation of leaders and thinkers, and for a Pan Nigerian President come 2023. But IBB owes the polity the debt of forthrightness and the duty of care as he clocks 80years in a few days. He should right the past through some forthrightness.

At 4 score years we expect less dribbles. At 80 IBB’s most important deft touch should be a clear validation of the season, the moment and the movement. IBB knows that the time is Youth O’Clock, he knows that Nigerian youths have the capacity and the competency to salvage this Enterprise from the precipice. And he knows that the fire of patriotism remains largely in the Youths.

We know and have seen young men and women in their mid 30s, 40s and early 50s who have genuinely bestrode the Nigerian space with a breath of fresh air. We have seen the energy and electricity of the 46years old Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello whose stride across the nation fits the description of IBB, we have seen Governor Yahaya Bello’s understanding of economics, finance and commerce, and have observed his love and friendship across the Nigerian geography, and would ask the General for some forthrightness. Call his name, IBB call his name, he is ready, willing and able to right the wrongs you all left behind, and he is ready to give a definite closure to the lost years of Nigeria.

Together with him we are building endearing and enduring blocks of oneness, purpose and patriotism across Nigeria, and together we shall berth a new and vibrant Nigeria come 2023. Say his name, be forthright and redeem the past, IBB.

And the time without an ounce of equivocation is Youth O’Clock.
