Investigate COVID-19 Fraudulent Activities In Nigeria, Activist Tells  EFCC, ICPC

…Appeals to State Governors Not to Exploit Situation to Defraud Economy

A Niger Delta born human rights and peace advocate, Comrade Sheriff Mulade has called on anti-graft agencies, EFCC and ICPC amongst others to rescue Nigeria from unpatriotic leaders who want to seize the global health emergency as an opportunity to defraud the nation’s fragile economy.

Comrade Mulade who is the National Coordinator of an NGO, the Center for Peace and Environmental Justice, CEPEJ, made the call while reacting to the rising figures of COVID-19 cases in parts of the country, appealing to relevant anti-graft agencies to help save the Nigerian economy from opportunistic politicians in government who may want to exploit the virus situation to embezzle public funds.

He particularly appealed to State Governors who do not have genuine or tangible evidences of COVID-19 in their States to stop reading out fake figures of coronavirus cases from their Government Houses, and quoting guidelines from the Ministry of Health and NCDC without proper arrangements to cater for their citizens.

Comrade Sheriff Mulade, a traditional High Chief in the Ancient Gbaramatu Kingdom of Delta State, expressed displeasure with the manner in which some Governors in the Niger Delta Region had used the innocent poor and vulnerable persons to glamorize themselves in the media without actually touching the lives of the people during the critical COVID-19 lockdown period.

He however, commended President Muhammadu Buhari for standing tall against COVID-19 pandemic and urged Nigerians to give him maximum support towards overcoming the global health challenge devoid of religious, political and ethnic considerations.

He also called on the Governors to genuinely reach out to their people with quality palliatives to cushion the effects of the hardships at this critical time.
