BENIN CITY—THE Benin National Congress, BNC, a socio-cultural group has issued a 14 day ultimatum to stakeholders and government officials to comply with the ruling of the National Industrial Court, Akure that confirmed Dr Napoleon Asuen as the Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Institute For Oil palm Research (NIFOR).
In an open letter to the Acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu and copied to President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Governor of Edo State, Oba of Benin and several other persons, the group alleged a gang-up against Asuen alleging that there was an ethnic agenda against the Benins by non Benins in NIFOR and the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development suing the wife of top government official.

The group in the letter accused the Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh and the Permanent Secretary in the ministry of being behind the inability of Aisuen to resume as CEO of NIFOR since he was appointed and his appointment ratified by the ruling of the Industrial Court since December last year.
