Three people were reported killed and 10 vehicles burnt as an NNPC accredited fuel station…
. . FORMER Minister of State for Education and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi, in this interview assesses the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, his foreign trips, his party, the PDP, attacks on Minister of State, Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu and the governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Mr. Godwin Emefile among other issues. What is your take on the recent criticism of the Minister of State for petroleum, over the fuel shortage in the country? Put it this way, I am a leader from the Niger Delta; particularly I am from Delta State and the minister of state, petroleum is from Delta State. What the minister has done from what I have investigated because of the ignorance of his critics who said flying a private jet was his pitfall. This is what we call a joint venture agreement. Don’t forget Nigeria has 60 percent of the joint venture between us and either Mobil, Shell, Exxon and what have you and these people have used and leveraged on the resources of the 60/40 to own, claim and are operating planes. Looking at the issue of fuel scarcity, we can see that this is caused by a marketing cartel where his critics are firmly involved in. It is all a temporary situation to arm-twist Mr. President. If I know Kachikwu well, if it is the same person I know, Nigerians will be shocked with his master piece and master plan with regard to putting to an end the issue and I challenge Kachikwu that I would be very disappointed if there is no plan in place to permanently cure the issue of petrol scarcity in Nigeria. They are trying to blackmail Buhari that Kachikwu drives the same plane as Diezani; but the fact is that the same joint ventures hasn’t changed; Chevron is still here, Mobil is still here, Shell is still here, Texaco is still here in whatever form or shape. So it is the same joint venture. Diezani didn’t carry the plane away. Diezani didn’t change the joint venture neither has Buhari done so, those planes will remain the planes of Chevron, of Texaco, of Agip, of Shell. Have we traced personal things to him? Have we traced that he has bought a plane? It is not the case. So in my opinion attacking the Central Bank governor is unacceptable. Attacking the Minister of Petroleum who is one of the best materials anywhere in the world; you can’t find his counterpart anywhere in the world. What is your stance on the calls for the removal of the CBN governor on the basis of the poor state of the economy? First and foremost what are the parameters? The CBN governor works under the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and as such there are certain monetary policies the CBN governor can’t bring to bear with the president. What I will expect the Buhari government to do is to make sure that we properly document; if you properly document the call for dollars and the usage, and you follow it up, we won’t have the situation we have right now. It is for the government and the Central Bank to sit up and set up a monetary monitoring department and make sure that whatever dollar is collected is actually used for the purpose that it was collected. So what will you tell those calling for his resignation? I don’t think he is going to be different from any other Nigerian what we need to do is what I just enumerated; he needs to sit up and get to the root of where his dollars are. Source:vanguard

We Must Get You – Police Tells Senator Dino Melaye
The Nigeria Police has vowed to arrest Dino Melaye, Senator representing Kogi West at the Senate. Mr Melaye had earlier in the day raised alarm of a police seige laid at his Abuja residence.
Moments after raising the alarm, the Police forcefully gained access to his compound and has continued with the siege. The police personnel believes the lawmaker is in the building despite denial from Melaye.
Stating its reason for the siege, the Police in a statement from its spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, said the Senator is wanted in connection to an alleged attack on a police personnel.
“The Police operatives currently in the residence of Senator Dino Melaye are to effect his arrest to answer to the case of attempted culpable homicide on the shooting of a Police Officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) while on duty at a stop and search point along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi state,” the statement from Moshood said.
“The above offence was committed by Senator Dino Melaye and his armed thugs in Kogi State on the 19th July, 2018 when they shot and wounded a police officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) while on duty at a stop and search point along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi state.
“The Police Officer is yet to recover from the gunshot injury he sustained during the attack and still under intensive medical care. “The Police investigators have written the Clerk of the National Assembly for Senator Dino Melaye to report at Kogi State Police Command, CIID, Lokoja for him to answer to these offences against him under investigation in Kogi State Police Command but he has bluntly refused to report himself to the Police.
“The Police operatives will continue to be in wait at the residence of Senator Dino Melaye until he surrenders himself for arrest. The offence for which Senator Dino Melaye is being investigated is capital in nature and not compoundable.
“The Force will not tolerate attack on its personnel by any individual no matter how highly placed. The law must take its course,” it added. Melaye and the police have had a running battle since the senator was named by suspects in a murder case.
The latest development comes days after the lawmaker hinted of plans to abduct and inject him to death.
