Dr Fredrick Fasehun, the founder of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to pay for the pipeline protection services rendered by his organization.
Fasehun made the call on Tuesday at a quarterly interactive media roundtable in Lagos. He said, “We were given the contract on March 15, 2015 and we deployed youths into the jungle. They faced insects, snakes and other wild animals and some of them even died. The government did not pay us a kobo before or during the time of the contract which ended on June 15.
“We have asked our lawyers to study the terms of the contract. An official in the NNPC told me that we had been paid but I told him that we had not received a penny. We call the attention of the powers that be to look into this. The holy books say that a worker deserves his wage,” Faseun stated.
