Ogoni Cleanup Contract Scam: MOSOP Blast Environment Ministry

Nsuke said it is the response of the ministry to the contract fraud in HYPREP is shameful, ridiculous and a huge burden on the anti-corruption campaign of President Buhari.
 
"The ministry of environment should be ashamed to tell us that the only reason it awarded Ogoni clean-up contracts to farmers and livestock breeders is that they signed affiliation agreements with perceived cleanup companies" Nsuke said.
 
"It follows that HYPREP's only condition for winning the contracts was for anyone to sign a contract of partnership with some firm that is perceived to be competent" Nsuke further saiid.
 
The MOSOP President noted that the ministry's position is tantamount to an election contestant who uses some one else's certificate to scale through screening emphasizing that HYPREPs handling of the cleanup contracts amounted to fraud and violated even the rules set by HYPREP as advertised in several media.
 
The MOSOP President re-iterated earlier position that HYPREP was stinking in corruption and the award of cleanup contracts lacked integrity and did not follow due process.
 
He called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately dissolve the Governing Council of HYPREP to allow an independent investigation into the contract scam.
 
Nsuke said leaving the Governing Structures of HYPREP in place while investigations commence into the fraudulent contracts will erode public confidence in the process and jeopardize the integrity of the investigation.
