The National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress, Gani Adams, on Wednesday said the group saved the country N3billion that would have been lost to the cartel in the oil sector.
Mr. Adams made this known while speaking on a radio call-in programme, “Day Breakshow” of Rockcity F.M Radio Station, Abeokuta. He lamented that the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, which signed the contract, is still owes the association even after the expiration of the contract.
The OPC, during former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, got awarded a contract to protect the pipelines facilities in the South-West of the country.
Mr. Gani said in the course of protecting the pipelines, the group lost two of its members to the vandals, adding that several others also sustained various degree of injuries, and are still undergoing medical treatment.
The Congress leader said he was optimistic that the authorities of the NNPC would not renege on the contract agreement since it was a legal agreement.
