Ambassadore Abdulazeez Musa, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Petroleum, who hails from Jigawa State faces the greatest battles in his civil service career, as President Goodluck Jonathan has ordered his removal from office.

Already the Head of Service of the Federation, Mr Abba Aji Goni has directed the most senior director in the ministry to act, while a probe panel is being constituted to investigate the embattled accounting officer of the ministry, in line with civil service rules.

Mr. Musa who faces dismissal if found guilty is to answer questions on how he raised several millions of dollar for the extravagant wedding of his daughter in far away Dubai.


The daughter was recently married to the son of a Kogi born businessman, which was attended by several hundreds of guest from within and without Nigeria in Dubai.

FrontiersNews reliably gathered that the alleged corrupt permanent Secretary refused to adhere to advice by his superiors against hosting the lavish wedding in Dubai, as he will not be able to defend the source of his sudden wealth.

But government said there were sufficient compelling evidence that he must have extorted funds from oil and gas business concerns to stage the marriage in an unnecessary location.

  1. Transperency and honest living MUST start somewhere. The expense of a wedding in Dubai, what is his annual salary and living expenses. This is stealing public funds and bribery or extortion of companies with IMPUNITY.
    This man exemplifies public servants in Nigeria, he is not alone. Fish them out and prosecute to a positive end to stop others. Thanks President Jonathan, move to the next level.

  2. The imminent revolution is about to begin.
    Thank you Mr President.
    There are more Naija weddings coming up in Dubai.
    May this marriage not prosper because it’s foundation is on
    BLOOD MONEY. God is never mocked, Amen.

    • God bless you my brother, the impunity with which these thieves lavish our wealth when poverty reigns in this country is uncanning. This should act as a deterrant.

      What is even more annoying is that the steal the money and spend it in other countries. The new trend is to have a wedding in Dubai.

  3. WHAT,MR PRESIDENT JOHNATHAN DID,WAS VERY MERE POLITICS,THE WEEDING EXPENSES WAS PAID,BY AWELL KNOWN OIL MUNGUL,WHO WAS,FATHER TO GROOME.THE APPEARANCE OF ASIWAJU AHAMED BOLA TINUBU AT THE WEEDING,MADE THE PRESIDENTIAL MEN JITTERAY.THE USPENSION WAS MERE ENVY.

    • Your moral justification for this blatant disregard for honesty is that even bigger thieves sponsored the wedding. I truly feel sorry for you.

      IT IS BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT NIGERIA REMAINS CORRUPT. KINDLY DO NOT MAKE FURTHER COMMENTS ON THIS MATTER.
