The Good Governance Advocate group led by Charles Oputa (aka Charly Boy), on Thursday announced that it plans to demand the extradition and prosecution of Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, the Former Minister of Petroleum, who served under the administration of Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
According to the group in a statement signed by Charly Boy, Deji Adeyanju and Adebayo Raphael, there will be two days sit out on Monday and Tuesday at the front of the Wuse office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to ensure that Mrs. Diezani faces punishment .for her alleged crimes.
“Following recent mind-boggling allegations of corruption and wanton looting of public funds and the collective patrimony of Nigerian citizens by the former Minister for Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Allison-Madueke, we call on the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to apply for her extradition from the United Kingdom to face prosecution in Nigeria.
“Furthermore, a Federal High Court has ordered Mrs. Allison-Madueke to permanently forfeit several luxurious properties in several highbrow areas across the country to the Federal Government.
“It is therefore unimaginable that the Federal Government is not pushing for Mrs. Allison-Madueke’s extradition to face punishment for her alleged crimes.
“In this light, we will be holding a 2-day sit out in front of the EFCC Headquarters to demand that the Federal Government applies for her extradition and prosecution in Nigeria. We will also be highlighting the level corruption at the Central Bank of Nigeria.
“Details of the sit out are as follows: Date: Monday 28 & Tuesday 29 August, 2019. Time: 9am-10am daily. Venue: Front of EFCC Office, Wuse 2, Abuja
“We invite all well-meaning Nigerians to join us and participate in this event.”
