Ifeanyi Uba of Capital Oil implicated in Fuel subsidy fraud; FG Order him to pay 5 billion Naira within 60 days

The Federal Government through the Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) has given Capital Oil owned by Ifeanyi Uba 60 days to pay back N5 Billion being rogue proceeds he made from Kerosene subsidy or risk arrest and prosecution.

Capital made N22.4 Billion from petrol subsidy.

Sources told Pointblanknews.com that NNPC allocated to Uba’s Capital Oil 75% of kerosene supplies to distribute to the entire country at N50 pump price.

But the cheapest of the product at the depot is N120 per litre & N135 at the filling stations while Capital Oil makes more than N70 on each litre of kerosene sold.

Pointblanknews.com learnt that Uba illegally made over N60 billion from payments from kerosene subsidy with his Capital Oil as the major player in the kerosene deals.

Sources hinted that Uba who made a payment plan of N2 Billion with AMCON reneged severally and started playing hide and seek anytime the Mustapha Chike Obi led agency approaches him to pay up his debts.

Capital Oil is one of the firms which received dodgy payments running into billions of naira from the Petroleum Products Pricing and Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) on kerosene, petrol and diesel subsidy.

Government paid a total sum of N3.655 trillion to beneficiaries of fuel subsidy between 2006 and 2011, while amount jumped to a whooping N1.426 trillion between January and August last year.

Investigations reveal that Uba, one of the most notorious subsidy scammers, has several collaborators at the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), and Petroleum ministry, with the arrow head being, Petroleum Minister, Deziani Allison-Madueke.

Pointblanknews.com learnt that Uba also benefited immensely during the tenure of Odein Ajumogbia.He was later invited to fund the Jonathan/Sambo campaign organization by Deziani Allison-Madueke.

President Goodluck Jonathan who is insisting that there must be no sacred cows is spearheading the Hunt for all those who have defrauded Nigeria through subsidy.

Sources hinted that some members of Jonathan’s kitchen cautioned that going after the subsidy cabal could hurt his Petroleum Minister, but the President maintained that whoever was involved should be taken down.

The EFCC has already been mandated to investigate all the subsidy beneficiaries, which include Oando, Integrated Oil and Gas, MRS, AA Rano. A-Z Petroleum, ASB, Arcon Oil, African Petroleum, Aminu resources, Con Oil, Avante Guard, Avido, Boffas and Brila Energy.
