Alleged abuse of office: CSNAC charges Buhari to sack Chief of Staff

Abba Kyari

The Civil Society Network Against Corruption, CSNAC, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, for alleged abuse of office.

In a petition sent to President Buhari and signed by the coalition’s Chairman, Olanrewaju Suraju, the group said the several cases of abuse by Kyari should be curbed as it conflicted with the current government’s anti-corruption drive.


The group took the cue of its petition from the report of August 16, 2016 by Saharareporters, an online newspaper, where it was alleged how Kyari is using his office in the Presidency to further his personal interests.

The petition reads: “The letter received by Saharareporters reportedly showed how Mr. Kyari prospects on behalf of Valiant Offshore Contractors Limited, a private business that is being fronted by the major owner of SeaWolf Oilfield Services Limited (single biggest debtor of the Asset Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON)); owned by Nigerian businessmen Uwamu Adolor, Okulola Remi (who is close to former President Olusegun Obasanjo), Rasheed Mahey Rafindadi, Wessels Alwyn, Odunlami Remi, Waziri Ibrahim Dahiru and Oduntan Adetunji.

“Sequel to the N160 billion debt owed to the First Bank of Nigeria by that Seawolf Limited, two of its oil rigs were seized by AMCON and parked at Lagos Marina.

Despite this situation, Mr. Kyari was alleged to have deployed his influence and exalted office in representing the company as a Special Purpose Vehicle to immediately commence businesses with the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) where he is also a board member.

“Thus, Mr. Kyari is clearly abusing his membership of the NNPC board to take advantage for personal interest. He is alleged to be piling enormous pressure on AMCON to give Seawolf a clean bill of health in order for the company, a major debtor of the Nigerian Government, to resume business as a drilling services company with the NNPC without meeting its debt obligation to AMCON.”
