Mr. Nosike Ogbuenyi, special assistant on media to the minister of the Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Senator Bala Mohammed has sworn that his boss had no hand in the N76 Billion National Public Security Communications System CCTV scam.
Ogbuenyi, today, condemned insinuation by the Executive Chairman of the Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders (CACOL), Comrade Debo Adeniran that the minister was part of the $470m (N76billion) CCTV scam.
The minister’s Special Assistant said was emphatic that the CCTV contract was neither awarded nor executed by the FCT Administration.
“We regard that unguarded outburst by Comrade Adeniran as a shameful advertisement of ignorance not just on the part of the man himself but also on the part of the organization that he purports to lead. While the FCT Administration has been doing a lot to enhance security of lives and property in the FCT and is ever ready to collaborate with any person, institution, ministry, commission or group committed to the same objective, the fact needs to be stressed that the Abuja CCTV project was never a baby of the FCT Administration by conception, execution or supervision.”
Ogbuenyi asked Comrade Adebayo to render an unreserved apology to the Minister for wrongful accusation and defamation, adding: “if those calling for FCT Minister’s prosecution on account of a CCTV contract that he neither originated nor executed are not comprehensive illiterates, they should have been able to at least carry out preliminary internet research on the project to ascertain those that awarded and executed the contract.”
The minister’s mouth piece advised CACOL leader to always carry out proper investigation on issues before making public pronouncements on them in order to avoid ridiculing himself and embarrassing innocent persons and institutions.
Ogbuenyi described the CCTV project as an important project in the estimation of the FCT Administration and enjoined those responsible for the installation, completion and operation of the vital security devices to do the needful thing to make them fully operational.
