Fashola raises alarm ove fake facebook accounts set up in his name..



The Minister of Power, Works and Housing and the immediate past Governor of Lagos State, Mr

Babatunde Fashola, SAN, at the weekend, disclaimed several Facebook accounts purportedly set up in

his name along with picture, urging members of the public to be wary of the antics of scammers.

Reiterating that his Facebook account remains facebook. com/babatundefashola and not any of the fake

accounts shown in table below, Fashola said it was unfortunate that despite repeated warnings and

disclaimers, certain unscrupulous elements still engage in the act of defrauding unsuspecting members

of the public through different social media platforms falsely linked to him.

Table : List of Fake Facebook Accounts are;

1. GovFasholaRaji San

2. BabatundeFashola

3. GovBabatundeRajiFashola

4. BabatundeRajiFashola

10. Fashola Lee Kan Si (Using the official picture of Mr.BabatundeFashola, SAN)

According to a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Communications, Mr Hakeem Bello, the call

became necessary for the umpteenth time, in view of the activities of scammers, who have been issuing

out series of Facebook comments and information in his name, with the intention of duping

unsuspecting members of the public.

The statement said the conmen have, through Facebook, been urging unsuspecting people to apply for

some government facilities or utilities meant to benefit the public, but to which some agencies of

government have been given the responsibility to manage. One of such fraudulent accounts also put

out a message purportedly from Mr. Fashola urging people to donate to a fake orphanage.

Noting that Facebook has been formally notified of the fake account for appropriate action, the

statement advised members of the public to always clarify with the relevant agencies of government at

all levels before engaging in any dealings with people purportedly working for them and also advised

people to report to the law enforcement agencies so that those involved in the nefarious acts can be

brought to justice.

Senate summons Kyari, CEO NNPCL over N48 billion pipeline surveillance contract awarded to Tompolo



The Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions has summoned the Group Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Mr. Mele Kyari, over a N48 billion pipeline surveillance contract awarded to stakeholders in the Niger Delta region.
The pipeline surveillance contract was awarded by the Federal Government to Global West Vessel Specialist Limited, a private maritime security firm founded by Government Ekpemupolo, an erstwhile Commander of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) also known as Tompolo.

The Tompolo-owned firm was expected to protect all the oil pipelines criss-crossing nearly all the states in the Niger Delta in collaboration with other major stakeholders in the oil bearing communities in the region.
Specifically, Tompolo is expected to carry out the N4 billion per month contract that covers Delta, Ondo, Imo, Rivers and some parts of Bayelsa State in collaboration with major tribes along the communities that host the oil pipelines.

However the Isoko Ethnic Nationality has petitioned the Senate alleging that their young men were not being carried along in the multi-billion naira project.

The Isoko people under the auspices of Interested Isoko Youth Groups, through a petition sent to the Senate on their behalf by Stanley Okonmah, said they were completely marginalised in the contract award.
The lsoko Ethnic Nationality requested the Senate to probe the award of the contract and prevail on the NNPCL’s management to award a fresh contract to a company owned by an Isoko person.

Specifically, the people urged the Senate to look into the matter and urged the Minister of Petroleum Resources and the Group Chief Executive Officer of Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) to correct the anomaly.

They want the NNPCL to award the pipeline surveillance contract to a company to be chosen by stakeholders of Isoko nation.

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions, Senator Ayo Akinyelure (PDP – Ondo Central), at a session in Abuja, said the GCEO of the NNPCL was being summoned to the Senate for him to come and assure the Isoko people that the agency would do the needful to avoid economic sabotage by the aggrieved youths of the area.
He said, “The GCEO of the NNPCL is hereby summoned by the Senate Committee on Ethics Privileges and Public Petitions (to appear before this committee) on January 25.

“We want him to come and assure Nigerians that he would do the needful to calm down the youths so that they will not engage in pipeline vandalism.”

Earlier, the leadership of the Isoko youths told the panel that since oil was discovered in their land and pipelines installed there in 1958, till date, no case of vandalism had been recorded in the area.
