President Goodluck Jonathan has directed that the report of the Nuhu Ribadu led Committee on the Oil sector be submitted to him on Friday November 2nd, 2012.
This followed wide spread controversy that has trailed the Committee report even when it was yet to be officially submitted to the government.
A statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe, said the Goodluck Jonathan led government was committed to the campaign against corruption hence there would be no cover up in the findings of the Ribadu Report when the report is finally submitted.
Okupe said the President should be commended for his personal resolve to fight institutionalized corruption in Nigeria instead of the current criticism that has trailed the yet to be released report.
Nigerian, he also stated, should praised the president for ordering the probe of the Oil Industry for the period of ten years (2002 - 2011) which also covers the tenure of his administration.
President Jonathan’s unwavering and commendable determination to fight corruption, Okupe insisted, is clearly demonstrated by his approval of the appointment of credible Nigerians, anti Corruption Crusaders and members of the opposition party in the committee.
