Dr George Uboh
Foremost whistleblower in Nigeria and Chief Executive Officer of Panic Alert Security System [PASS], Dr George Uboh has dragged the Nigerian Senate to court due to efforts by the legislative body to pull a smart game in the compensation due to him.
Dr Uboh had blown the whistle on Chevron Nigeria Limited in a deal that sucked 4.1 million Dollars off the coffers of federal government of Nigeria.
Going by the whistleblowing act, he is entitled to %10 which totals 410 thousand Dollars after the said money must have been recovered.
Incidentally, however, the Senate failed to “put proper modalities in place to see that 10% of the recovered sum based on plaintiff’s petition is paid to him as evidenced by Defendant’s refusal to put any agreement to that effect in writing”.
Elombah.com gathered that trouble then blew open on June 8, 2017, when George Uboh received the invitation below to an interactive session with the Senate Ad Hoc Committee on the petition, Mr Nnaji John on behalf of the chairman.
The interactive session, which was slated for Wednesday, July 14, 2017, was to coerce Uboh to supply more facts pursuant to the substance of his petition after he had withdrawn the said petition.
The renowned whistleblower, sensing some anomalies in the procedure, petitioned the Federal High Court in Abuja.
In the suit, the petitioner is seeking a court “order directing the Defendants to pay the plaintiff 10% of the sum of $4,100.079.00 for already supplying the Defendants information for the recovery $4,100.079.00 from Chevron Nigeria Limited.
An analyst with Elombah.com recalled that Dr Uboh had enjoyed a sweet romance with the Senate and its president Dr Bukola Saraki and noted that whatever the cause that prompted the suit must constitute a serious breach on the part of the Senate.
The suit has the following as defendants:
1. National Assembly
2. The president of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki
3. The Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public petitions
4. The Clerk to the national Assembly
5. The Clerk to the Senate
6. Ad Hoc Committee on petition from Dr George Uboh.
