The senator representing Ondo North, Prof. Ajayi Boroffice has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, to probe the deal between Ondo State government and an American firm on bitumen exploration in the state.
Boroffice, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Science and Technology, made the appeal through a press statement signed by his media aide, Kayode Adeniyi.
The lawmaker, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, alleged that “credible reports have revealed that the over-hyped firm with no functional website was founded in 2012, with a staff strength of about four employees. Furthermore, the Managing Director of the Nigerian subsidiary claimed he joined the 2012 incorporated firm in 2006. What an irreconcilable dissimilarity! How could a four-year old firm with about four employees be trusted to undertake such huge task of exploring bitumen in commercial quantity?”
