A few months ago, some denizens of the Rivers State government characterised NIMASA boss, Dakuku Peterside, as a failure. They did not know what was coming. He proved them wrong without a word. He slammed them with his success story. As the finance minister announced, NIMASA turned billions of naira to the Federation Account, topping in multiple percentage what his predecessors did.
In millions of dollars, he replied Governor Wike and his men. This doing is also evident in the work of Professor Ishaq Oloyede of JAMB, who turned out a profit of eight billion Naira when his predecessor trickled with three million Naira.
This is kudos to the two men, but also to President Buhari’s ability to ensure that he ran a country shorn of corruption. The NCC also unveiled a huge sum. We cannot however shout hurrah until we see the full story. For instance, what is NECO’s record?
The Dakuku and Oloyede deserve the plaudits as ambassadors of accountability.
