President Goodluck Jonathan today set up three committees to prepare draft White Papers on the reports of the Petroleum Revenue Special Task Force, the National Refineries Special Task Force and the Governance and Controls Special Task Force, a statement by presidential spokesman Reuben Abati has said.

He said the action was in furtherance of Jonathan’s declared commitment to doing all within his powers to ensure greater accountability, probity and transparency in Nigeria’s oil and gas industry,” the usual government line when it senses public doubt or widespread disbelief.

The press statement said the committees would “study the reports, review the issues raised, and prepare draft White Papers for the consideration of the Federal Executive Council within two weeks.”

Of the three committees, the government said:

The Minister of Labour Chief Emeka Wogu will chair the White Paper Committee on the Petroleum Revenue Special Task Force Report. Members of the committee are the Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro; theMinister of State, FCT, Oloye Jumoke Akinjide; and one of the Ministers of State for Foreign Affairs, Dr. Nurudeen Mohammed.

The Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Ms. Ama Pepple, will chair the White Paper Committee on the report of the Governance and Controls Special Task Force. Other members are the Minister of State, Defence, Erelu Olusola Obada; Minister of Transport, Senator Idris Umar; and the Minister of State for Agriculture and Rural Development, Mallam Bukar Tijani.

The White Paper Committee on the report of the National Refineries Special Task Force will be chaired by the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Arc. Mohammed Sada. Members are the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Akinwumi Adesina; the Minister of State for Health, Dr. Muhammad Pate; and the Minister of State for Education, Mr. Ezenwo Nyeson Wike.

NIGERIANS ON SR-HOW LONG IS 2 WEEKS?

The President has instructed his ministers to submit a report that will be white paper on issues raised from the 3 committees. What is a white paper - A white paper is an authoritative report or guide that helps readers understand an issue, solve a problem, or make a decision. Some of us have failed to understand that a white paper will make the 3 reports binding on successive governments. Besides 2 Weeks is not eternity - for goodness sake we are talking about the end of November. What an impatient lot!

Deri, Ify. Akpos1, we are waiting for your foolish comments

Deri, Ify. Akpos1, we are waiting for your foolish comments.

The comments are not complete without your comments.

Wake up from your slumber and give us your deranged excuses.

Come and defend the indefensible.

those who dont like it can relocate to siberia-

Three committees were set up by government on the fuel subsidy scam. One of them was headed by Idika Kalu-a finacial guru. We did not witnerss any infighting when they quietly handed their report to GEJ as scheduled. War only broke out when it got to the turn of Fulani Ribadu. Happily, we did not see ACN and CPC match on the streets of abuja or have them protest against the refusal of buhari to reach out to boko haram when Idika visited Jonah. But when Ribadu went to Aso Rock, to Farouk his way through Boniface, he tried to take 9ja 4 fools. Cause we saw him use the same old trick he applied to leak the report to the western press-to untie tinubu whom he once described as the biggest rogue on earth. Those who dont like it can re-locate to Siberia-it was not Jonah who introduced the fuel subsidy scam into our polity-Na IBB and Obj-

Thanks!

Thanks!

Clueless

Confusion break bone, double wahala for dead body.. It's no surprise that you don't hear from DERI on vital issues like this.

Interesting. Govt officials

Interesting. Govt officials and GEJ men are indicted and GEJ sets up a committee composed of same appointees to review the indictment. Are we this helpless to continue to swallow this shit ad-infinitum?

Govt of the committee, for

Govt of the committee, for the committee by the committee.....

Rubbish person

OMG!

How did we get ourselves to be ruled by this incompetent buffoon?

Why Ribadu May Go To Prison

I know that from the moment Mr Nuhu Ribadu that report, he has also submitted and completely hands-off every fact, evidence and information he has about corruption in the oil industry. Consequently, PDP has extracted Ribadu’s surrender on the fight against corruption. And he cannot make statements about this again without reference to PDP spy dogs at the Presidency. The rest may go the Newswatch way– stories, regrets and blames. This is exactly what the Doyin Okupe propaganda has set out to achieve.
Thus, after the scenario has played out, we are back to just where we started with Yar’dua.http://revfrkennethevurulobi.blogspot.com/2012/11/nigerias-oil-scandal-why-mallam-nuhu.html

Googluck's govt is govt of

Googluck's govt is govt of committees for committees and by committees...period!

GEJ

Mr President is just another Maradona dribbling us back and forth. The real Maradono dribbles to score but in the history of this great nation of our our Maradona always shift the goal post in the middle of the game

Lazy citizens

How many competent presidents took us to were we are today? If the people are unable to fix the Government, the Government will not fix the people.
We are all waiting for GOD to come down and help us. take to the street and protest for change like the Arab spring if you want change.

I hereby set up a committee

I hereby set up a committee to check whether your head is correct for setting up committee upon committee

GEJ - The Greatest mistake of our time

Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is a mistake and a failure in Nigeria. God will considered the pain of the saint and intervene very soon. I have never seen corruption confidently repackage to humilate Nigeria like this. You appointed a fellow Thief Aighimokhuede to identify Petroleum Thief and those few thieves he found were not purnish but are asking for plea barganing. Don't you have conscience? Armed Robbers should be given clear barganing too.

Now the worst has happened, Your ministers who were inadequate to prepare the Ribadu's report in the first instance should now rule over it. I weep for Nigeria! Revolution is on the way.

I now believe d statement that....

This our president is indeed clueless is void of idea, committee upon committee is shows the level of cluelessness this man is. I pray that 2015 come fast than expecting. This country is going worst than ever. Unemployment rate 78percent,corruption
Rate is sporadically of the increase and evry facet of our economy is going down d drain. The labour of our hero past is going wallow through this present administration pls we call for help.ooo

Ok then

HAHHAHAHAHHAHA, what a buffoon after that you can set up another blue ribbon committee to review the white paper report, there after you can set Strategic committee to review the blue ribbon report...this is what happen when we have those fake Phd's issued by Nigerian Universities to men who do not merit it, A wet blanket and wimp for a president above all an out right thief. what a waste, and this is the same man Nigerians can out in drove to support...IBB would have been a better choice if you ask me..

Emeka Wogu is an interested party

Fela Anikulapo Kuti called it "government magic" in the Uknown Soldier. Ribadu Commitee report is now at the burial ground and the undertaker is no less a person than Chief Emeka Wogu, the owner of Matrix Energy Ltd one of the companies indicted in the oil subsidy fraud. So, one of the oil traders that Ribadu complained about in his report will now write the Govt Whitepaper! This Jonathan is damn serious in fighting corruption! Kudos GEJ!

A Circus of Puppets and Junkies

The thought of the Nation having a sitting President is just an illusion. In practical terms, and in factual and actual reality, there is no President in Nigeria. I guess we are on to the next committee..whose report will be reviewed by another further committee. This is just a circus played by puppets and junkies and the star character is the man that boldly wears a hat of shame.

committees

I hereby propose the setting up of a committee to collate all the views expressed on this page on all the committees set up by Jonathan.

COMMITTEE

YOU SET UP A COMMITTEE TO OVER LOOK ANOTHER COMMITTEE ARE THEY WORKING PRO BONO ? IF NOT DISMANTLE THE COMMITTEE AND LETS MOVE ON CAUSE IT MAKES NO SENSE SPENDING MORE MONEY KNOWING THAT NOTHING WILL COME OUT OF IT

How about religious pilgrimage they report submitted?

How about religious pilgrimage report they submitted to President Jonathan? What happens to it? Why can he act on the recommendation? The man is a liability. He is just wasting our time and money.The committee recommemds that anyone who wants to make religious pilgrimage should spend their money without government cushion but Jonathan sits on it. When is he going to be President?

Committee on committe

This President is a complete joke. What is the use of setting up a committee to do a job only to set up another committee to review its report? In the end, who will verify the report of the committee that reviewed the committe?? GEJ has made us a laughing stock in world circles.

committee upon committee when

committee upon committee when will it end?
