NBET Crisis: Group wants Power sector to retract Amobi’s suspension

Nigeria mulls supplying electricity to Chad

A group in the nation’s power sector, Power Projects Watch Syndicate (PPWS), has called on the ministry of power to retract the letter purporting the suspension of the managing director of the Nigeria Bulk Electricity Trading Ltd (NBET), Dr. Marilyn Amobi.

PPWS frowned at the recent crisis brewing in NBET specially the way the minister of Power, Saleh Mamman is handling the crisis.

In a statement made available to media houses yesterday and signed by Alhaji Omar Daura and Chief Babatunde Adeosun, chairman and secretary of the PPWS respectively, the power watchdog regretted “the recent palace coup in NBET, where six disgruntled staff working with the full support of the minister of power, illegally  usurped the mandate given by the federal government to  Amobi, by announcing her suspension as MD of NBET, without recourse to the Presidency

According to the group, the action speaks volumes of the illegality of the highest order and abuse of power which has seen, one Dr Nnaemeka Ewelukwa claiming to be the acting Managing Director of the agency, on the orders of the minister of power, without any authorizing letter from the president to that effect.

It lamented that the one-sided approach of the minister to the crisis, which it said, is threatening to engulf all the stakeholders in the power sector and erode the confidence of international community especially international agencies, has given room to questions of the neutrality and transparency of the minister to the ongoing crisis.

The group also explained  that NBET as a limited liability company, and  registered under the companies and allied matters act (CAMA) with a legally constituted board of directors including the Minister of Power and the minister of finance, budget and economic planning as chairman were appointed by Mr President.

“It is also important to let the general public know, that “the MD/CEO of NBET is the only MD in government that answers to two Ministries and Ministers, the group added.

“More worrisome is the fact that just few hours after the purported suspension of Dr Amobi by the minster of power, Dr Ewelukwa in conjunction with his sponsors and co-players, quickly released a press statement which was allegedly signed by one  Aisha Waziri of the Corporate Services of NBET, stating that Dr Ewelukwa had assumed duty as the acting MD of NBET.

“But from our investigations, Aisha Wasiri is an Officer in the Research department, not in corporate services as they falsely wanted the general public to believe. Moreover, the woman in question has denied ever signing or releasing press statement purporting to have appointed Dr Ewelukwa, as acting MD, as she (Aisha), is currently in London, receiving medical attention,” PPWS stated.

The group also disclosed that they are aware that Aisha Wasiri who is furious on the way her name was falsely used to achieve Ewelukwa’s hidden agenda, has “asked these claimers  to retract the statement attributed to her; and for Ewelukwa to show when she signed and addressed the press.

“We are forced to disclose at this point that Dr Ewelukwa, the alleged claimant to the position of MD of NBET, does not possess the requisite cognate experience to lead this all important power agency, having put far less  work experience contrary to what he claims. Moreover, he has been the brain behind the crusade to oust Dr Amobi, from her post from the beginning, so that they will have all the time to perpetuate corruption in the agency.

“This is to show you the working minds of some of these people who are ganging up to illegally take over from Dr Amobi. You will understand that what they want is just to go back to their corrupt practices in NBET, which the MD put a stop to, when she assumed duty in 2016.

The group therefore called on ministry of power to quickly issue a retraction of the suspension of Dr Amobi as MD of NBET and begin the process of probing and prosecuting Dr Ewelukwa and his cohorts for forgery.
