The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has called for the dissolution of the Governing Council of the Hydro Carbon Pollution Restoration Project (HYPREP), following revelations of massive contract fraud in the government agency.
President of MOSOP, Fegalo Nsuke, made the call while reacting to the HYPREP contract scam revelations made by Premium Times.
Nsuke said: “Though the questionable integrity of the managers of the cleanup project were not strange to MOSOP as at least one of them had an unresolved issue with the EFCC over bribery and mismanagement of MOSOP funds.”
He noted that the revelations by Premium Times were overwhelmingly a confirmation of MOSOP’s earlier outcry of corruption in HYPREP.
The MOSOP President called on President Muhammad Buhari to dissolve the Governing Council of HYPREP to save the Ogoni cleanup project.
Nsuke further said that President Buhari “must act on these scandalous revelations to rescue the image of his administration’s anti-corruption crusade.”
“HYPREP has seriously embarrassed President Buhari’s anti-corruption war and the president must prove himself to be committed to fighting corruption by not condoning the fraud in HYPREP,” he said.
The MOSOP President further described the revelations by Premium Times as “only a tip of the iceberg when compared to monetary fraud that an investigation into the activities of HYPREP will reveal.”
“HYPREP is a stinking house of corruption and fraud,” the MOSOP President stated.
