BREAKING: Alleged Massive Corruption At Federal Ministry Of Works, Group Urges EFCC To Ensure Diligent Investigation And Prosecution—-A coalition of anticorruption civil society organisations, Civil Society Coalition Against Graft, CISOCAG, has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to ensure a diligent investigation and prosecution of all who are found culpable in an alleged corruption syndicate at the Federal Ministry of Works.

 

CISOCAG in a statement issued by its Coordinator, Comrade Mark Adebayo and Secretary, Comrade Femi Lawson, alleged that it got information that one Kabiru Kamba, of the Federal Ministry of Works, has been arrested by operatives of the EFCC based on credible intelligence and may have identified some of his accomplices who are influential members of an organized corruption syndicate in the Ministry.

The group in a press release made available to journalists in Abuja this Wednesday alleged, inter alia, that “We got information that one Kabiru Kamba, of the Federal Ministry of Works has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for allegedly being among a well-grounded corruption syndicate within the Works Ministry who allegedly specialize in reprocessing already paid out vouchers and repaying same which runs into billions of Naira.”

“We got information that he has allegedly named some of his accomplices to include a former permanent secretary in the Ministry, one Babangida Kazaure and even a former governor, Adamu Alero, who is the chairman of Senate Committee on Works”.

“We call on the EFCC to be courageous and steadfast in the investigation and prosecution of anyone found culpable in this alleged multibillion Naira scam at a period that Nigeria is grappling with fiscal nightmares and its debt profile standing at a scandalous N43 trillion and going higher by the day. How is the government expected to meet its financial obligations to pay salaries, build infrastructure and fight insecurity if all the resources it should utilize for them are being stolen by some people?”

“We urge the EFCC to live up to public trust by ensuring that it doesn’t succumb to pressures from any quarters no matter how highly placed to cover up this monumental fraud. We say this because of some unwarranted experiences in recent times. Of notable example is the seemingly carefree manner that he Commission has been handling the several corruption allegations against the incumbent Speaker of the Lagos state House of Assembly, Rt. Honorable Mudashiru Obasa, as against the prompt alacrity with which the Commission went after the Ogun State Assembly speaker and brought him to Abuja to face interrogation. While we commend the EFCC for all it has been doing in bringing corrupt public officials to book, we urge the antigraft Commission to avoid being seen as giving preferential treatments to the subjects of investigation before it.”

“On the present case in question involving the Federal Ministry of Works, we urge the EFCC to go all out after all culpable personalities, especially the alleged ring leaders KABIRU KAMBA, BABANGIDA KAZAURE, and ADAMU ALERO, in this matter and ensure that the law takes its full course.”
Attempts to confirm from EFCC Spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren was unsuccessful.
When Newsnowonline contacted him, he forwarded a number of another colleague for confirmation.
His colleague who promised to call back didn’t do so as at the time of filling this report.

#CongratsPastorChris: LoveWorld’s Rhapsody of Realities Now Most Translated Publication in the World—-The Rhapsody of Realities, a publication of LoveWorld Publishing Ltd, a daily devotional authored by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of The Christ Embassy is now the most translated book in the world.

The Director of Operations, LoveWorld Publishing, Pastor (Mrs.) Lola Aisida who made this known said the publication has now been translated into 7,000 worldwide with 520 of these languages from Nigeria alone.

“Never in the history of the world, and in all the record books of Guinness Book of World Records, has any literary material – be it document, film, writing, book, or any piece of historical or modern parchment – been translated into 7,000 languages.

“The meteoric rise of the Rhapsody of Realities devotional to the most-coveted spot as the world’s No 1 daily devotional and now Most Translated Book in the world began with first edition published in the English Language by LoveWorld Publishing.”

She said that 22 years after, LoveWorld Publishing has grown into a vast network of publishers spread across several countries, adding that the work of translation is deployed by a massive army of translators who applied due diligence processes in delivering Rhapsody of Realities to all the 7,000 languages.

“By any standard, the work of translation is not an easy one. If it were, the world’s popularly literary pieces would have long been made available in all languages. On the contrary, authenticated records show that the most translated short film documentary is in eleven translations; the most translated short film has 22 translations; the most translated document, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, produced by United Nations in 1948 has been translated into only 370 languages as of 2019.

“And, even the acclaimed Most Professionally Translated Author in the World, Agatha Christie has her books in only 100+ languages!”

“There are over 7,000 languages spoken today, but a report says 42 percent of these languages are endangered. These statistics posed a global challenge fit only for a global publishing house that transcends the inadequacies of the publishing space.”

She concluded that LoveWorld Publishing will ensure that no language goes extinct as Rhapsody of Realities will remain widely distributed month after month in over 7,000 languages of the world.

Speaking, the Abuja Zonal Pastor, Christ Embassy, Dipo Fisho, appreciated Pastor Oyakhilome “for bringing men into the reality of the original purpose for which they were created,” through the book.

He said the Ministry would ensure the book continues to reach all communities in nations of the world.

According to him, the purpose of the book is “to bring men back to their creator for their purpose to be fulfilled,” mentioning that testimonies abound of people in hopeless situations who have got the reason again to live again by reading the book.

A user, Dr. Chris Iyama, said the Rhapsody of Realities has been transforming lives, mentioning that as users, there has been the creation of study groups meeting daily to study the book.

He said the book is mind enlightening and the testimonies of its users have shown productive contributions in their various endeavors, including legislators in the National Assembly and public offices.

According to him, the 7000 languages translation feat is “worth celebrating and shouting about.

I would like to commend this awesome book which has become one of the best testimonies out of Nigeria to the rest of the world. I pray for greater unction on the Man of God Pastor Chris Oyakhilome to write this life transforming book, said Mr. Yinka Aderibigbe, Publisher, Sunrise News Online.
