A CALL FOR REDRESS.
Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
Your Excellency sir, with utmost concern and profound sensitivity to your struggle in opposition to corruption in the nation, we want to convey to your discover the notorious conducts of sure people who pretentiuosly declare to be disciples of your anti corruption drive and coverage of your administration.
There is little question Your Excellency that your administration is thought for anti-corruption campaign and to succeed in this struggle in routing out corruption from our society, requires all arms to be on deck. It is on this word that we determined to unveil sure corrupt practices of some people who occurs to be authorities functionaries in your immediate response and decisive motion.
Your Excellency, I have to say that nepotism and favoritism has been the hydra headed monster of corruption in this nation, that has led to break down of authorities and governmental establishments through the years as members of the society now see authorities as failed establishment.
Be that as it might,we acknowledge the essential and onerous efforts of Your Excellency in ensuring that authorities as an establishment retrieves sick gotten wealth and regains it is misplaced glory in Nigeria. There’s little question Your Excellency that the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) was particularly arrange for the enhancement of growth in the Niger Delta area of the nation.
It is by advantage of the above talked about undeniable fact that the Federal Government releases billions of naira to the fee on a yearly foundation for the regional growth. Permit me to say right here that inspite of this humongous launched by your administration, the efforts of the federal government is but to be felt by majority of the Niger Delta people as quite a few efforts has been and remains to be been made to thwart and pissed off your authorities by corrupt authorities officers and a few of their collaborators.
I have to say right here that some people have hijacked the method for the only objective of self aggrandizement as contracts at the moment are being awarded primarily based on nepotism and favoritism as in opposition to benefit and observe information thereby selling corruption.
The above state of affairs is been presently perpetrated by Engr Samuel Adjogbe, Executive Director Projects (EDP) NDDC and Olorogun O’tega Emerhor. Using his place as the manager director of tasks, Engr. Sam Adjogbe has repeatedly and ceaslessly awarded quite a few contracts as a patronage to Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, who’s his political godfather and benefactor and thereby brief altering pre certified contractors who genuinely bidded and gained contracts.
Your Excellency, proof out there at our possession, disclose that the water hyacinth contracts price of over #500,000,000 (Five hundred million) naira meant for Delta State All Progressives Congress (APC) members, had been all fraudulently re awarded to Olorogun O’tega’s Company by Engr Samuel Adjogbe the EDP after letters of award and certificates has been issued to pre certified contractors who genuinely bidded and gained the water hyacinth contracts. The duo of Engr. Samuel Adjogbe and Olorogun O’tega Emerhor connived to award the assorted water hyacinth contract slots to their relations, cronies and surrogates corporations akin to:
- Duke Dukakiss International Nigeria restricted owned by Duke Okpohworho, whose elder brother Barr. Fred Okpohworho is a detailed confidante of Olorogun O’tega Emerhor. He was awarded 5 slots.

- Hobson and Lawson Limited owned by Onyeka Ahaeze, one other shut affiliate of Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, awarded 5 slots.
This unholy corrupt practices and actions of these 2 people in most instances, has led to the use of sub customary supplies in the execution of some of the tasks and most of them are even deserted after big kickbacks had been collected. I urge to say that, the above state of affairs is the peak of corruption and requires pressing consideration in order to discourage others who sees it as a manner of life.
I have to additionally state right here that the proceeds of the mentioned prison and corrupt practices was invested by Olorogun O’tega Emerhor and Samuel Adjogbe respectively being crime companions in selection properties in Guzampe Abuja, Event Center owned by O’tega Emerhor in Lagos, a mansion that was constructed and accomplished inside three (3) months at Evwreni hometown by Engr. Samuel Adjogbe and the mansion constructed by Olorogun O’tega Emerhor additionally in Evwreni to say however just a few.
That lately, EDP Engr. Samuel Adjogbe has not solely carried out renovation works at his resort, but in addition constructed a brand new wing of his resort extension at Ughelli, Delta State with proceeds of kickbacks from NDDC contracts awarded to corporations linked to him. Further, I wish to say that the highway resulting in the Eclat resort Ughelli, owned by the EDP, has been tarred by NDDC in a contract executed by an organization he additionally has stake.
In the identical brazen act of fruad, the premises and the highway resulting in the mansion of Olorogun O’tega Emerhor was additionally tarred by NDDC underneath the guise that they’re roads in Ughelli city that wanted pressing consideration.
From the above, I hereby state that the funds of NDDC is now been used as their private property and if pressing steps will not be taken to redress this ugly development, the funds of the NDDC can be used for particular person’s profit as in opposition to the advantages of the complete Niger Delta people. It is in the sunshine of the above premises, that I name on Your Excellency to make use of your distinguish workplace because the chief govt officer of the complete Nigeria nation to direct all concern safety companies to as a matter of urgency, start the fast investigation of the nefarious corrupt actions of Engr. Samuel E. Adjogbe and Olorogun O’tega Emerhor and to prosecute the above named individuals for malpractices and corrupt conducts as corruption has been the bane of our society.
God bless Nigeria!
