The Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, has alleged N160bn went missing in the Nigerian Ports Authority in a certain year.
Oshiomhole revealed that in the said year, NPA remitted N2bn out of a total sum of N162bn it generated.
The governor said that those who presided over the affairs of the NPA squandered the N160bn.
Oshiomhole said this on Tuesday, at the National Delegates’ Conference of the National Union of Roads Transport Workers in Abuja.
He said that the figures he quoted were from an official report.
The governor said: “I want to propose to the President of the NLC that you should advise the members of the National Peace Committee to include justice, national justice at the peace committee because peace is a product of justice.
“So, for us to have peace, there must be justice otherwise we are going to have the peace of the graveyard and there can be no justice if one person can pocket $6bn.
“Last week, someone told us and this was an official report that in one federal parastatal, the NPA, they admitted to collecting N162bn in one year.
“They spent N160bn out of that and remitted N2bn to the Federal Government. Is that justice? Can someone plead in defence of this kind of abuse?”
