The Governor of Nigeria’s Central Bank (CBN) Sanusi Lamido Sanusi at National Assembly on February 4th, 2014, informed the Senator Ahmed Makarfi led committee on Finance about allegations against the management of the NNPC in transactions elating to the missing $20bn oil proceeds. Sanusi asserted to the committee that the transfer of proceeds to Atlantic Energy and Seven Energy were both unconstitutional and Illegal.
“….the NNPC took over oil wells left by Shell and handed over same to NPDC who took over and handed over to two (2) Nigerian companies – Atlantic Energy and Seven Energy; and transferred revenue that should come to the Federation Account to these companies… I have given three (3) separate legal opinions to this committee on the unconstitutionality and illegality of this transactions.”
The Committee Chairman adjourned the sitting to Thursday, February 13, 2014.
From Sanusi’s disclosure that there is a non-remittance by the NPDC of six billion dollars ($6bn) of gross crude revenue to the federation account.
Jide Omokore’s Atlantic Energy describes its relationship with the NPDC, thus: “a provider of an alternative funding agreement in order to meet the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company Limited’s cash call obligations in the affected OMLs.”
Omokore is at the center of a variety of financial deals involving the President and the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.
Some of the deals involve a revelation by the ousted governor of Nigeria’s Central Bank, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, that some businessmen took $6 billion from the proceeds of crude oil sales and shared it amongst themselves.
Omokore is also at the center of a scam in which the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC) Ltd, a fully-owned subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), was used as a conduit by Omokore’s Atlantic Energy.
In 2011, Mrs. Alison-Madueke caused the NNPC to sign strategic partnership agreements through NPDC to engage in managing OML 4, 38, 41, and 30, 34, which had been sold by Shell to the NPDC.
Omokore’s firm was supposed to get 30% of the profit from the deal but NPDC officials told SaharaReporters that all the sale proceeds were taken by Omokore on behalf of President Jonathan and Alison-Madueke.
Mr. Omokore is also heavily involved in the kerosene subsidy scam which runs in the billions of Naira.
Sources tell SaharaReporters that he is also in possession of at least two private jets he is believed to be holding in trust for Mr. Jonathan and the oil minister. In 2012, the French police briefly detained a private jet conveying Mr. Omokore from Paris to Monaco. See more.
