No oil billionaire since Buhari became petroleum minister – Ribadu

Nuhu Ribadu, pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), says no one has become an oil billionaire since President Muhammadu Buhari became minister of petroleum.

Timipre Sylva is the junior minister of petroleum resources while the president is the senior minister — a first in the country.

Ribadu said this while making a presentation on anti-corruption and good governance at a two-day retreat for commissioner-designates, special assistants, and permanent secretaries, on Monday, in Gombe state.

He said corruption has been curbed in the petroleum sector by the Buhari administration.

He asked the officials to make a vow not to steal public funds, adding that corruption needs to be curbed at all levels.

“Make a personal vow not to steal public funds. You can’t stop corruption in the police when the civil service is still corrupt. Stop corruption and see what will happen in the society,” Ribadu said.
