~1.5 mins read
The Senate on Wednesday threatened to recommend the sack and possible jailing of the Group Chief Executive Officer of Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Mele Kyari, and heads of government agencies in the oil sector over the Turnaround Maintenance on which N12 trillion has been spent without tangible results.
The upper chamber specifically threatened to sack heads of agencies directly involved in the Turnaround Maintenance (TAM) projects of Nigerian refineries.
It also revealed that it has records of over $592 million, €4.8 million and £3.4 million spent between 2010 to date on the TAM, yet none of the refineries has refined a drop of oil.
The Senate Ad-hoc Committee investigating the various Turn Around Maintenance (TAM) projects of Nigerian Refineries, issued the threat during an interactive session with NNPCL management and other executives of the oil sector.
Some of the agencies invited whose chief executive officers failed to show up, but sent representatives, include: Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA), Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission (NUPRC) and their subsidiaries.
The Chairman of the Ad-hoc committee, Senator Isa Jibrin (Kogi East), noted that so much has been heard on the turnaround, and so much has been spent on operational materials on the refineries without results.
He said, “We will ask for refund and dismissal of all the chief executives involved in the Turn Around Maintenance.”
Senator Jibrin said that for weeks, they have been asking for documents, which have not been given by the oil companies, a development that created suspicions.
Jibrin said, “We sent them an invitation more than two weeks ago requesting for documents and the documents have not been released after two weeks. So, we want the chief executives to be present.
“More worrisome is that between 2010 and 2020, the sum of N4.8 trillion was said to have been spent as operational expenses. How do you incur operational expenses that have to do with purchase of raw materials and similar expenses on factories that are moribund? How do we come about operational expenses? We need to know.

Della, who accused Kess of cheating on her with his colleague, Christy O, a former BBNaija housemate, said she has also reported him to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and the US Embassy.
According to her, Kess married her for papers and money.

“When he got out of the show, he was angry with me that I made him lose out, that he could have won the show.
“He didn’t care that our baby died, he said the marriage was over.
“The EFCC has been notified, the US embassy lawyer has also put a red flag on Kess’s name, so that even if he applied for a visa, he can never step foot into the United States of America again.
“On october 1, I was with the US embassy lawyer and the commander of police, they helped me with my case and I will have to come back to Nigeria to start the process because I have requested for the 45,000 dollars which I spent on Kess to be reimbursed because it was a scam of a marriage.
“I spent 45,000 dollars on this man; Kess would call me and say baby I’m broke and I’ll send him money to his UBA account, he kept transferring money to Christy O.
“I pay his mother’s rent, I did everything for him. The N1.5m I took from his account, I put it there.
