RESPONSE TO PUBLICATION ON NEWS - AF. OP- MOBILE. OPERA. COM TITLED "JACKPOT! HOW BUHARI SETTLED UCHE OGAH WITH IGBO'S SLOT OF CRUDE OIL CONTRACTS @ THECAPITAL. NG
We are constrained by reason of exceptional urgency to respond to the above subject article posted in the online news publication @thecapitalng. The allegations made therein display a gross lack of investigative journalism and reporting as this is clearly a calculated and malicious attempt to not only tarnish the good image of the subject of this article but to viciously sabotage and undermine his excellent relationship and standing with all good people of Igbo extraction.
Summarily, the "facts" touted by this article are a falsified version of the truth as the company - Masters Energy Oil and Gas Limited ( The brain Child of Uche Ogah) has been a major player in the oil and gas industry for over ten years, within which time the company has made a huge and significant impact in the sector. The company has been an off taker of the crude oil contract since 2011 when it won the bid after undergoing a careful and open selection and qualification process strictly managed and monitored by the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). The criterion for selection was premised on the asset base of the company and the company's quantum of investment in the industry. Masters Energy has solely financed the importation of several vessels of PMS, AGO and other petroleum products over the years, lending credence to her good standing with the NNPC.
IT MUST BE CLEARLY STATED THAT MASTERS ENERGY WAS NEVER INDICTED FOR ANY SUBSIDY FRAUD AND CANNOT BE INDICTED FOR ANY WRONGDOING AS IT IS A COMPANY WHICH CONDUCTS ITS BUSINESS STRICTLY WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE LAW, UPHOLDING THE TENETS OF CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AND WITH THE UTMOST PROBITY AND INTEGRITY.
As a Christian entrepreneur, a humanitarian and former gubernatorial aspirant, Uche Ogah's achievements precede him in the oil and gas industry and beyond. His investments in human capital, commerce and industry, specifically in the Eastern region have singled him out as an illustrious son of the soil, and his enthusiasm and zeal to lend a hand to any of his brethren are legendary. Any attempt by the unscrupulous writers of the above mentioned article to smear his good name, erode his achievements and taint him as an opportunistic businessman before the Igbos will certainly go to nullity.
The Groups Energy City in Port Harcourt, Rivers State and Industrial City in Uturu, Abia State still stand out as the first of its kind. Throughout the East, the Uche Ogah Foundation has made a huge impact and his name is a household name primarily on account of his investments in education, scholarships for the less privileged and creation of jobs for the unemployed. The list of his contribution to the advancement of humanity is seemingly endless.
In a bid to seek out new frontiers to further serve his people and with a vision to improve the overall well-being of the people of his home state - Abia state, he ventured into the realm of politics, howbelt, without the anticipated success.
Nevertheless, Uche Ogah remains an ardent believer in two fundamental ideals - the supremacy of God and that the only noble cause worthy of pursuit is the service of humanity.
NDI IGBO.... KWENU!!!
