As Nigerians continue to suggest possible ways of tackling corruption in the oil and gas sector, major players in the industry have identified total reform of the industry as one way to nip the menace in the bud.
In his bid to achieve maximum results, President Muhammadu Buhari is also being asked to be cautious of the “racket” and those whom they said have formed themselves into “cabals” in the oil sector.
National Chairman of the Independent Marketers’ Branch of NUPENG, Comrade Ogbodo Thompson who stated this while speaking to journalists in Benin City, said to achieve this, the President will need to steep on toes.
Comrade Ogbodo whose Executive was returned unopposed at the 3rd Quadrennial Delegate conference held in Benin City weekend said, “There must be a total reform in the Oil and Gas sector, (because it is a) place where syndicates operate or cabals operate; it will be difficult and it will take a longer time for such to be investigated”
“We have to identify who these syndicates are and until such persons are identified, not much can be realised and we cannot move forward. I will advise that the current administration do a thorough investigation and carryout a reform in the NNPC, this I believe will help us as a nation.”
“With his stake, I believe our pipelines will work; subsidy or no subsidy, private depots or no private depots, I just pray that they don’t lure him into the racket and if they don’t lure him into the racket, he will give a better leadership. He said
Also the National President, NUPENG, Comrade Achese Igwe urged delegates to take issues of the union seriously
Represented by the 2nd Deputy National President, Comrade Asuquo, the NUPENG chieftain tasked members to help bring the needed change into the Energy sector.
