Group wants Buhari, CCB to probe Marilyn Amobi - ITREALMS

ITREALMS:
President Mohammadu Buhari and the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) have been asked to investigate strong allegations of misconduct leveled against the Managing Director, Nigerian Bulk Electricity Company (NBEC), Mrs Marilyn Amobi, reports ITREALMS.

The NBEC boss has been accused of running a private company located in the United Kingdom (UK) while maintaining her public position in Nigeria. She is accused of owning some 100 per cent in shares at ESL Economics and Management Associates Ltd based in the UK.

Nigeria's leading anti-corruption group, Human and Environmental Development Agenda (HEDA), in a letter last month addressed to the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) with a copy sent to President Mohammadu Buhari called for the immediate probe of the allegations levelled against Amobi. The letter was signed by HEDA Chairman, Mr Olanrewaju Suraju.

"It is important to investigate these allegations. Mrs Amobi cannot be running a private company and at the same time holding a sensitive public-driven position in Nigeria. That is against the constitution and runs against the Code of Conduct Bureau rules", Olanrewaju said.

The group has asked her international partners in the UK to beam the searchlight on Amobi with the hope of assisting local investigative efforts.

HEDA said there were reports that the Managing Director of Nigerian Bulk Electricity Trading Company, Marilyn Amobi, has continued to manage and direct her private company in the United Kingdom. According to the report, ESL Economics and Management Associates Limited, with company number, 06413894, incorporated in the UK in 2007 which the Managing Director is alleged to control 100 per cent of its shares, according to the Companies House in London.
