Former Niger Delta militant leader, Mujahid Asari-Dokubo, has called on President Buhari to pay ethnic militias given pipeline surveillance contract by GEJ administration. Asari-Dokubo, was himself awarded a pipeline surveillance contract by the FG. He revealed
that the 3-month deal elapsed on June 15. He said that the ex-minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Allison-Madueke, did not sign for the payment before she left office.
In his words, “Diezani (Allison-Madueke) did not sign payment for the contract before she left. All across the 6 states (Lagos, Ogun, Ondo, Rivers, Delta and Bayelsa) where the contract was awarded none of us were paid; none of the companies were paid. The FG should do what is needful by paying the money they owe.
The same mandate that was given to Buhari to become President was the same mandate that was given to us in a legal and binding contract. If Buhari is law-abiding and if his government respects the rule of law, the contractual obligations will be followed. The same way they give contract to people to lift oil; the same way they give Julius Berger contracts to build roads; the same way they give people contracts to build houses; that is the same way pipeline surveillance contracts were given to us.
But they (FG) are not paying for the work done. It is against the law of the land. Paying us our contract money is the right thing he (Buhari) ought to do and for any reasonable human being.”…… wen ds man talks, d whole world trembles. Buhari shld pls pay up b4 he treats FG’s fcuk up……
