Urhobo Nation: HOSTCOM Reacts To NDDC Saga, Writes Buhari To Swear In Odubu Board



By Wilson Macaulay
The leadership of the Host Communities of Nigeria Producing Oil and Gas, HOSTCOM, Urhobo Ethnic Nationality, have made a compassionate appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari to swear in the Pius Odubu and Bernard Okumagba led board that has been screened by the Senate before the issue of Interim Management Committee arose.

Comrade Andrew Agoyo, HOSTCOM Urhobo Nation Chairman, in an open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari made available to our correspondent lamented the corruption saga that is currently rocking the NDDC since the public hearing on the Commission’s Interim Management Committee began recently.

The HOSTCOM Urhobo Leader emphasized in his message to Mr President that, the foul odour of the can of worms oozing from NDDC Management Staff and the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs is worrisome and unacceptable, as their actions clearly demonstrate their insensitivity to the welfare of the people they are entrusted to serve in the best interest of the Niger Delta region which is currently in a sorry state.

Comrade Chief Andrew Agoyo, the Chairman HOSTCOM Urhobo Nation called on President Muhammadu Buhari to do away with the IMC which he described as a bunch of disgrace to the Niger Delta People who constituted themselves as cogs in the wheel of progress.

According to Comrade Agoyo, the selfish interest of some few individuals is not enough to jeopardise the collective destiny of the Niger Delta people, hence the call to clear the Commission of these fraudulent and unguided people who are on a mission to acquire the commonwealth of the Niger Delta people by every crooked means possible.

Speaking further, the Group Chairman said: “If this dirty habit of the likes of Godswill Akpabio, Prof Pondei and Cairo Ojougboh is not checked now, the development of the Niger Delta will remain a pipe dream.”

He stressed that, corruption must be tackled head long no matter whose ox is gored, adding that, only punitive measures taken against thieves of our commonwealth like it is done in China will be the panacea to stop the ugly trend in our nation Nigeria.

Agoyo argued that it will be very good to use some public enemies as example for others to learn by giving them the treatment that will discourage public servants from treading on the path of corruption.

He regretted that in our country, you will see the masters of the game of corruption coming to twist justice shamelessly to set corrupt public officers free from going to jail by finacially greasing the judicial authorities that are presiding and they are celebrated as brilliant lawyers to the doom of our collective well-being.
