Oshiomhole:NPA remitted N2bn out of N162bn to government coffers


Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole, revealed, on Tuesday, that the NPA remitted N2 billion to the government coffer out of the N162 billion it generated in one year.

Quoting what he called official report, Oshiomhole disclosed that what the NPA genetated was N162 billion but what was remmitted by the NPA authorities was N2 billion.

To this end, Oshiomhole charged the labour movement to stand behind President Muhammadu Buhari and support his anti-corruption war as well as advise the members of the National Peace Committee to allow justice prevail as there cannot be peace in the absence of injustice.

He said: “So I want to propose to the President of the NLC that you should advise the members of the National Peace Committee to include national justice at the peace committee because peace is a product of justice. So, for us to have peace, there must be justice, otherwise we are going to have graveyard peace, and there can be no justice if one person can pocket $6 billion.

“Last week, someone told us and this was an official report. In one federal parastatal agency, NPA, they admitted to collecting N162 billion in one year. They spent N160 billion out of that and remmited N2 billion to the Federal Government. Is that justice? Can a human plead in defence of this kind of abuse?”

Oshiomhole told the labour movement that it was high time the NLC initiated policies and suggestions to the Federal Government to ensure that government policies are job based and job driving, adding that the time to do that is now.
