Exposed! how nnpc award alleged illegal $18.48 million pipeline surveillance contract – bigpen nigeria electricity for refrigeration heating and air conditioning 9th edition answers


Industry sources revealed that the extant rules forbids NNPC, other ministries, department and agency from awarding a contract that is up to $20million in value but the Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Dr. gas 91 Maikanti Baru was said to have gone ahead to approved the contract citing “order from above”.

One of the source said: “Number one, this is in violation of the Public Procurement Act, which is the statutory rule guiding how public contracts and services are awarded. It stipulates that no contract from the tune of $20million can be awarded by any MDA, without deliberation and the express permission of the federal executive council. electricity production by state This approval by the NNPC, although cleverly spread so that it will look like it has not knocked the $20 million threshold, has violated that act.

“Furthermore, the operator of the asset, Heritage Energy Operational Services Ltd and Shoreline Natural Resources, as shrewd business people, have refused to agree to the new contract terms with OCean Marine because of the inflated value which will eventually be paid by them through ‘Cash Call’. When NPDC could not proceed with signing off on the contract because the JOint Venture Partners had declined, NNPC took it upon themselves to award the contract claiming that an Executive Order issued from Presidency demands that the contract be awarded immediately.

“There are many questions they have to answer; what is the rational for re-awarding a running contract to a new contractor, at a value almost four times the rate it had previously been awarded to the former contractor? Who issued the said Executive Order? Why the secrecy and why shut others who could deliver same service at a far lesser bid out? Why exclude the previous contractor, who had delivered an impeccable services because I gathered that there were no negative incidences on the facilities for the period the former contractor ran it?

“The NNPC, with all its baggage must provide answers to these questions. gas bubble in back I guess you are aware that there have been a couple of very shady and question events that have been reported out of the corporation in the last few month, bordering on question of non-remittance of accruals as well as awards that fell short of meeting due process. I think President Buhari should take another look at the way that place is being run by those he has placed in charge; NNPC is directly under his watch and things like this can’t be sailing every time and he should expect us to continue believing he is still a man of integrity. electricity billy elliot backing track The law of vicarious liability calls him to stand here”, he said.

“Imagine the sort of tension that has attended this new approval in just a few days, the silent and cold wars. This is a latent crisis situation on our hands and I won’t buy the narrative that they never envisaged a war from this. Why award an already running contract to another company and the contract now inflated to about five times the rate of the initial contract? Awarding a security job to two different companies, in an area that is considered volatile is a perfect recipe for chaos and a sabotage to the relative peace of the area.

“My appeal will go first to the GMD of the NNPC to have a second look at this security-risk of an action. Why approve such a huge contract without the input of the operators, is it for lack of a better coordination or is there something that the eyes mustn’t see? I will also call on all security agencies; the DSS, Nigerian Armed Forces and the police to step in now and stop this potential security risk. thermal electricity how it works I am concerned, I don’t want them to turn my community and state to another war zone”, Dasimaka warned.

“Your Excellency, we feel that this is the point at which you, as the Chief Security Officer of our dear state, must rise up to take steps to nip this madness in the bud to avert the impending danger that this greedy set of ‘soldiers of fortune’ is about to impose on not just our communities, but also our dear state. You may wonder how this is our concern.

“It has become our concern because we have sat down to imagine what the picture will look like when Ocean Marine successfully takes our jobs away from us, using either traditional rulers or president-generals of communities as fronts, how many youths with bustling capacities and abilities will be rendered jobless. We imagine what other uses can hitherto busy, but now idle youths can engage their abilities and capabilities in”, the protesters had said.
