Alhaji saidu who is the chairman of Arewa consultative forum in the region,in an interview with newsmen in Abuja revealed how the dredging company milkes Nigerian resources of 65million dollars on every seven months.
He said his romance with dredging International dates back 20 years ago,in the Niger delta.he is a scrap dealer who patronizes the company.
His commitments to the fortunes of the company,earned him admiration from the belgium Ambassador,especially when he was able to secure the release of four expatriates kidnapped by militants in 2007,without paying a dime to the militants.
following the services he rendered to the company,the Belgian Ambassador and its government opened a dommicilliary account for him in Belgium,and also secured him a six months visa,in addition to a memorandum of understanding MOU,was reached between him and the company to pay him 2 percent of 65 million dollars on every seven months.
Alhaji saidu explained that at the wake of late president musa umaru yarAduas administration,he met the late president at katsina,he approved a huge sum for dredging International.their first payment was paid to them by Alhaji hassan Dankwambo,the then Accountant General of the Federation.
Trouble started,when one of the official of the dredging International stephen pope told him to tell lie,to the Belgium Government that the Nigerian authorities demanded for a bribe of 500million naira.
Alhaji saidu as a patriotic Nigerian told stephen pope that he can not do such an evil to tarnish and bring the high reputation of the Nigerian government to the mud.
Stephen pope on taking over the dredging International management as its General Manager,stopped his monthly allowance of 200,000 naira.his 2 percent of 65million dollars,cut off,he boasted to him to go to court.that afterall Nigerian judiciary are corrupt entity.
Alhaji saidu is calling on the federal government of Nigeria to assist him,using diplomatic means to get his legitimate money from the belgium company.
