The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has dismissed as unnecessary the controversy which the suspension of Hadiza Bala Usman, the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), has so far generated among Nigerians.
“What is wrong in looking at what is happening in NPA? I don’t see what is wrong with that.
“It worries me that people are saying we should not ask questions. Nobody has been indicted.
“And that is why you do not have a time limit. So, it will take you some time. You are not auditing, but finding out the processes.
Amaechi, while inaugurating the committee on Monday in Abuja, charged the members to be diligent and ensure they do a thorough job.
”Examine and investigate issues leading to the termination of other contracts of NPA and confirm compliance with the terms of the respective contracts, court ruling and presidential directives.
“Examine and investigate the procurement of contracts from 2016 to date.
“And any other matter that may be necessary for the course of the assignment,” the Minister said.
The Minister then reiterated that the public should allow the ministry to do its job.
“So, we are seeking God’s guidance for us to do the right thing at the right time.”
