NAIJA NEWSPAPERS: TODAY'S THE PUNCH NEWSPAPER HEADLINES [1ST DECEMBER, 2017].


Below are the headlines found on The Punch Online Newspaper for today, Friday, 1st December, 2017.


Fri, 01 Dec 2017
The House of Representatives on Thursday gave the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Mr. Abubakar Malami, seven days to produce a report of his investigation into how letters initiating the recall of the former Chairman, Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Mr. Abdulrasheed Maina, emanated from his office.

An ad hoc committee of the House is probing the circumstances surrounding the reinstatement of Maina after he had been dismissed from service in 2013 and later declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for alleged pension fraud.


The committee, which is chaired by a member of the All Progressives Congress from Kano State, Mr. Aliyu Madaki, also summoned the Special Adviser to the AGF, Mr. Kehinde Ogini, to appear before it.

It was gathered that the committee was working on a report which indicated that the Federal Civil Service Commission, the Office of the Head of Service of the Federation and the Ministry of Interior, acted on directives from Malami’s office to conclude the recall of Maina into the service on September 28, 2017.

But, having denied that he personally authored any of the letters on Maina’s recall, the committee asked what actions he took to find out how letters bearing his seal left his office without his knowledge.

In his response, the AGF said he had directed the Permanent Secretary in his ministry to set up a committee to investigate the matter.

He said, “The letter dated October 5 was never signed by me. Maina’s case, up to that point, was still work in progress and I wrote KIV on it.

“Again, the letter of February 21 could not have emanated from my office because it did not follow procedure. The matter is under investigation.”

In its reaction to the AGF’s statement, the committee noted that Malami’s internal investigation into the letters and the report of the probe would resolve many issues.

Madaki, who spoke on behalf of the committee, said, “Your report should get to us within one week. Whatever you are doing, complete it within one week and report back to us.”


Malami had claimed that his special adviser and line officers in the ministry had kept writing for his approval to reinstate Maina.

He added that he never gave a final approval at any point.

In addition to its request for the report of the investigation, the committee summoned Ogini and all the administrative officers in the AGF’s office to explain their roles in Maina’s illegal recall.

Meanwhile, the Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Immigration Service, Mr. Mohammed Babandede, told the committee that Maina had three passports.

He said the passports were an official passport, a standard Nigerian passport and an American passport.

He also revealed that Maina was both a Nigerian and an American citizen.

Babandede told the panel that on September 2, 2013, Maina was prevented from travelling through the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos, because he was on the wanted list of the EFCC.

He added that the EFCC later wrote the service on December 1, 2015, removing Maina’s name from the list.

“We now have him on our watch list after Mr. President (Muhammadu Buhari) directed recently that he should be dismissed from service.

“But since 2013, our system has not shown that Maina travelled through any of our airports.”

He, however, admitted that it was possible that Maina used unmanned border posts, which was “illegal and an offence.”

The CG’s revelation made the committee to seek explanation from the Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu.

The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission says it has arrested four former commissioners who served in Kogi State during the administration of ex-governor Idris Wada.

ICPC said in a statement by its spokesperson, Mrs. Rasheedat Okoduwa, that the suspects were allegedly involved in fraud to the tune of N11bn.


 
The ex-commissioners include: Kayode Olowomoran (Culture and Tourism); Abdulrahman Wuya (Transport); Onama Godwin (Works); and Ali Ajuh (Budget and Planning).

The anti-graft agency said the former commissioner acting in connivance with the former governor, former Accountant-General, Ibrahim Idakwo, and a former Permanent Secretary in the state Ministry of Commerce, Frank Onoja, had obtained a N2bn Small and Medium Enterprise loan from the Central Bank of Nigeria on behalf of the state which was misapplied.

The statement added, “Preliminary investigations by the commission also revealed that the suspects allegedly partook in the mismanagement of another N8bn bond that was raised to fund 57 projects across the state.

“The large sums of monies released for the projects were allegedly far beyond the levels of work done. Furthermore, the suspects are alleged to have benefitted from illegal deductions to the tune of N1.3bn made from the funds of 21 local government councils of the state by the same administration.”

The ICPC said the suspects would remain in custody until they fulfill the administrative bail conditions granted them by the commission.

Wada is also under investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for allegedly receiving N500m from former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, through the then Director of Finance of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Senator Nenadi Usman.

Fri, 01 Dec 2017
The Federal High Court in Abuja has frozen seven separate accounts which, according to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, were used by the Nigerian Governors’ Forum to launder the sum of N10bn said to be derived from the proceeds of the Paris Club refund.

Justice Gabriel Kolawole directed on Wednesday that the freezing order would last for 45 days within which the EFCC must either institute charges in respect of the transactions against the relevant suspects or apply to the court for an extension of the order.



The judge also gave seven days to the account owners, if interested in seeking the setting aside of the freezing order, to file an application which must be served on the EFCC.

The frozen accounts are  0002184449 with Jaiz Bank Plc and operated by HAD Properties Limited; 0025600864 with Guaranty Trust Bank Plc and operated by Hassan Ahmed Danbaba; as well as 0005892453 with Access Bank Plc and operated by Melrose General Services Coy.

They also include one Access Bank account,  0045824054 and another Zenith Bank Plc account 1010948906, both of which belong to Bina Consult and Integrated Services.

The rest are two Access Bank Plc accounts – 0700755576 and 0700946008 – belonging to Farouk Adamu Aliyu and Malam Alu Agro Allied Company Ltd., respectively.

EFCC’s lawyer, Mr. Ben Ikani, had moved the ex parte application seeking the freezing of the accounts on November 27, following which Justice Kolawole adjourned till Wednesday for ruling.

The commission alleged that its preliminary investigation had revealed that the N10bn was fraudulently diverted by the NGF under the guise of paying consultancy fee to BizPlus GSCL Consortium which the Forum engaged “to carry out reconciliation of accounts and recover the amounts due to the states” from the refund of the over-deducted payment of Paris Club debt by the Federal Government from 1995 to 2002.

In an affidavit filed in support of the EFCC’s ex parte motion, a member of the Special Investigation Committee, set up by the commission to investigate the alleged Paris Club refunds scam, Osas Azonabor, alleged that preliminary investigation had revealed that the NGF caused the Central Bank of Nigeria to pay N19,439,225,871.11 into its account for onward payment to BizPlus as consultancy fee.

But the investigator stated that N10bn of the N19.4bn paid to the NGF account by the CBN was fraudulently disbursed to the seven accounts of companies and individuals, who were not part of the said BizPlus GSCL Consortium.



Detailing how the fraud was allegedly perpetrated, Azonabor alleged that the NGF had agreed to pay success fee of two per cent to BizPlus GSCL Consortium.

But the investigator alleged that upon the success of the recovery, rather than stick to the two per cent fee, the NGF caused the Central Bank of Nigeria to deduct five per cent, amounting to the N19.4bn.

He said, “That sometime in January 2017, the applicant (EFCC) received intelligence in respect of a case against the Nigerian Governors’ Forum alleging conspiracy, criminal misappropriation of public funds involving the sum of N19,439,225,871.11 out of the Paris Club refund made by the Federal Government in favour of the 36 states of the federation.

“That preliminary investigation conducted by the commission revealed that the 36 state governments, under the auspices of the NGF, engaged the services of Bizplus GSCL Consortium to carry out reconciliation of accounts and recover amounts due to the states from line charge made on them from 1995 to 2002 for a success fee of two per cent payable by the NGF.

“That investigation further revealed that contrary to the agreed fee of two per cent as stated in paragraph 6 above, NGF caused the Central Bank of Nigeria to deduct five per cent of the amount due to the states which amounted to the sum of N19.4bn (stated in paragraph 5 above) and paid the same into the NGF account, supposedly for onward payment to the Bizplus GSCL consortium.

“That our investigation of the case further revealed that a larger part of the amount stated in paragraphs 5 and 7 above was fraudulently disbursed by the NGF to individuals and corporate entities that were not part of the consortium.

 The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s 10th prosecution witness, Mr. David Ikpe, told the Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday that the Office of the National Security Adviser in May 2014 paid a cousin to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Robert Azibaola, the sum of $40m from the $1.2bn approved by the ex-President.

The anti-graft agency alleged that the former president authorised the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to release the sum of $1.2bn to the ONSA for “urgent national security project.”

Azibaola, his wife, Stella, and their firm, One Plus Holdings Nigeria Limited, are being prosecuted by the EFCC on seven counts of money laundering  before the court.

The EFCC alleged in the seven counts that the three defendants unlawfully received $40m from the then NSA, Sambo Dasuki, allegations which they denied.

Under cross-examination by the lead defence lawyer, Chief Chris Uche (SAN), on Thursday, Ikpe  explained that in March 2014, Dasuki through a memo entitled, ‘Intervention on urgent national security project,’ sought Jonathan’s approval for the release of $1bn to handle a number of sub-heads, including unmanned area or pipeline monitoring installations.

He said, again in April 2014, Dasuki sent another memo to the then President requesting an approval for $250m.

The witness said the then President approved Dasuki’s requests and by May 2014, the sum of $1.2bn which was by $50m less than the ex-NSA’s actual request, was paid to ONSA account.

When asked by Uche (defence lawyer), the witness said the former President’s cousin had explained during investigation and in his statement made to the EFCC that ONSA paid the sum of $40m to the account of One Plus Holdings Nigeria Limited, owned by him “for a security assignment in the Niger Delta.”

Giving a background to the payment, Ikpe said, “In March 2014, the then NSA, Sambo Dasuki, wrote a memo to the President titled, ‘Intervention on urgent national security project’ in which he sought the approval of Mr. President for $1bn to handle a number of sub-heads including unmanned area or pipeline monitoring installations.

“The NSA made an additional request for $250m in April 2014.

“The President gave approval to his request.

“The President approved the release of $1.2bn to the NSA for the purpose it was sought.

“In May 2014, the sum of $1.2bn was then released from the NNPC account under the title ‘intervention on urgent national security project.’”

He admitted that Azibaola was not the only one paid from the $1.2bn released by the NNPC.

He said, “It was this fund that was disbursed to the various recipients.
