The Centre for Social Justice, Equity and Transparency (CESJET), has written to the Speaker House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on the ongoing investigations into the activities of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).NEMA has being on the EFCC radar following the alleged disappearance of N2.5billion from the agency.

Six top directors of the agency had since been suspended indefinitely in connection with the missing fund.

CESJET, in a letter signed by its Legal Adviser, Edward Omaga, Esq. and addressed to the Speaker warned the Green Chamber not to allow the matter fade into cultural pot of time.

The letter obtained by Our Reporter reads partly: “The available documentary evidence suggests that the former Director- General of NEMA, Alhaji Mohammed Sani Sidi, perpetrated lots of unwholesome atrocities while in office.

“He practically turned the agency and its resources into a private company by awarding arbitrary contracts and making payments that violated all known public procurement processes.

“This accounts for why a grand plot has been designed by some individuals acting on behalf of those indicted NEMA officials and presently being dramatized at the Investigative Hearing to cover up for Alhaji Mohammed Sani Sidi.”
