Subsidy: House Wants Ahmadu Ali Prosecuted

Former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmadu Ali, should face prosecution over his tenure as chairman of the board of Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA), the House of Representatives has recommended.

Adopting the report of the Ad Hoc Committee on Monitoring of the Subsidy Regime Tuesday, the lower chamber accepted a recommendation that Ali, who was board chairman from 2009 to 2011, and the entire members of the board during the period be prosecuted for their decisions which allegedly opened the floodgate for the abuse of the system.

Other recommendations adopted by the House include: “That the management and board of the NNPC should be completely overhauled and all those involved in infractions be further investigated and prosecuted by the relevant anti-corruption agencies.
