N-Delta Group Warns Against Using EFCC To Witch-Hunt Nigerian Investors

LAGOS DECEMBER 15TH (URHOBOTODAY)-A pro-Niger Delta group, the Niger Delta Indigenous Entrepreneurs Forum, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, National Leader of All Progressives Congress APC, Ahmed Bola Tinubu and National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomohle to urgently reverse the trend of an obvious witch-hunting of Nigerian private indigenous investors in Nigeria by the Economic Finance and Crime Commission EFCC.
The group in a statement yesterday in Abuja, also accused top national leaders of APC from Southern Nigeria of masterminding the unnecessary persecution and trial of former Chairman of a new generation bank by the EFCC.
It said the arrest and arraignment of some Nigerian investors who have contributed greatly to the country’s economy over reconcilable bank loans and campaign related funds by the EFCC was a complete mockery to the anti-graft agencies.
The group pointed that it will be wrong for the top national leaders of APC to be indirectly working against the interest of the party and re-election of President Buhari in 2019, as persons who are willing to support the party were being erroneously persecuted.
The statement issued by its National Chairman, Mr. Godbless Urhiri, the group warned that EFCC should not be used as a tool by persons in APC to fight their enemies and business rivalries within the APC and outside the party for personal interest.
The group noted that EFCC persecuting notable Nigerian investors would scare both foreign and indigenous investors from investing in Nigeria, adding that President Buhari should ensure that indigenous investors are protected and encouraged.
” APC leaders should stop the fighting of businessmen supporting the Nigerian economy with their investments. The indigenous investors being witch-hunt by EFCC have huge investments in the country, therefore, unjustly fighting them is an invitation to subjecting lots of Nigerian families to hunger and poverty”.
” The obviously witch hunting activities of perceived enemies witnessed across the country is unacceptable. It is evident that, since the emergence of comrade Adams Oshiomole as the national chairman of APC, it’s one shenanigans or the other rocking the party and country at large. In retrospect, more people leaving the party than entrants, rife court cases, acrimony, division etc”.
” the indigenous investors being witch -hunted have gargantuan investments in the country that are supporting the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, providing economic growth and employemet for Nigerians”.
” At this trying time of our country, when government is seeking Nigerians abroad and foreign investors to come and invest in our economy, some politicians are using their position to fight the few businessmen that are creating jobs for jobless Nigerians. This is the highest level of insensitivity”.
