A former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has called on the Department of State Services (DSS) to urgently arrest and prosecute heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of the Federal Government under former President Muhammadu Buhari known to have abused their offices through corrupt tendencies.
Frank, in a statement issued Sunday, said the call became imperative following the suspension and arrest of the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, by the DSS.
He noted that other heads of critical government agencies known to have serially abused their offices and allegedly stole the commonwealth of the people must be brought to book.
Frank maintained that failure to arrest and prosecute them would show that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration was only out to witch-hunt Emefiele, now under DSS custody.
He listed the Chief Executive Officers to include the Directors General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Bashir Jamo; Nigeria Ports Authority (NPA), Mohammed Koko; Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Mele Kyari; and the Executive Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Muhammad Nami.
Frank also called on Tinubu’s administration to include beneficiaries of corruption proceeds from the affected MDAs in its list of suspects to be arrested and prosecuted.
He said, “Those who illegally benefited from illegal allocation of oil blocks and marginal oil fields championed by the NNPCL and the CBN’s Money Redesign Policy must be fished out and prosecuted.”
Frank also urged the secret police to go after the former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, immediate past Minister of Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika and ex-Minister of the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq.
