Jonathan’s kinsmen raise the alarm over alleged sale of gas turbine

Published

The people of former President Goodluck Jonathan in the Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State have raised the alarm over the alleged clandestine sale of the Kolo Creek Gas Turbine at Imiringi, which supplies electricity to the area and some parts of the state.

They said that some unnamed buyers of the gas turbine were about to surreptitiously take possession of the facility and move it to another location outside Imiringi.

The traditional rulers of Emeyal clan, in a statement on Wednesday by King N.D Amakuro, frowned at the development and described it as “fraudulent and provocative.”

According to a statement, which was also signed by Chief Iwolisi Jephthah and Mr Egbo Masi, the selling of the gas turbine was an attempt to underdevelop and alienate the Ogbia Kingdom from Bayelsa State and the good things of life.

The statement partly read, “For eight years, the facility was grounded and the entire Ogbia Kingdom kept in darkness and no effort was made to re-activate the gas turbine only for it to be sold.

“We will resist any attempt by any individual, group of persons or organisation to remove the gas turbine from its present location at Imiringi.”

The traditional rulers called on the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission as well as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to beam their searchlights into the alleged criminal sale of the gas turbine and bring those involved to book.
