Missing $20b: Okonjo-Iweala Should Resign Immediately "with the Scant Honour Left"

Okonjo-Iweala Should Resign Immediately Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) was infuriated with a controversial statement of by the Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister for the Economy, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and, therefore, urged her to stop playing dangerous Pontius Pilat and to resign immediately “with the scant honour” which lingers with her.
In the statement, signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, CNPP points out that Nigeria’s economy is getting worse and, moreover, suspended governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi “opened the Pandora-Box of the monumental corruption inside the Nigeria National Corporation (NNPC)”.
“How can she insult our collective intelligence by claiming that her position on this matter has been clear from the start; which start?
“The loot predates the Malam Sanusi's letter of September 2013 to President Goodluck Jonathan. Does it mean that the Coordinating Minister was not coordinating the golden goose of the economy - NNPC until the scam was exposed?” CNPP asked in the statement.
The message also recalled that Dr Okonjo-Iweala had unfortunately remained deafeningly silent on the allegation that N700m is daily being siphoned to subsidize Kerosene.
“Can the economy she coordinates sustain such drain of the economy from a single item? The kerosene scam from all indications remains the greatest threat to our democracy and by extension the security of our dear country.
“In sum, Dr Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala should stop playing Pontius Pilat and resign forthwith with the scant honour left,” the statement concluded.
