Petroleum Minister urged to sanction Agip boss over Nigerian Content

Niger Delta Indigenous Movement for Radical Change, NDIMRC, has urged the Petroleum Minister, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, to call the Vice-Chairman/Managing Director of Nigerian Agip Oil Company, NAOC, Mr. Ciro Pagano, to order over the Nigerian Content Act, imploring Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to also investigate activities of the company.
The group, in a statement by its President, Nelly Emma, praised the Petroleum Minister for her transparency in the industry and encouragement of indigenous companies, but urged her to sanction Agip boss, over his alleged continued subversion of the Nigerian Content Law.
The group noted that two years on after President Goodluck Jonathan signed the Nigerian Content Bill into law; Agip was still carrying on its operations as usual and has allegedly refused to carry indigenous companies along. It assured the minister of its preparedness to fully support her actions in enforcing the Nigerian Content Law to the letter.
