Missing IRDC N300 million: More trouble looms as contractors move against Chevron over non - payment for jobs executed


The crisis that has continued to trail the controversial withdrawal of N300 million from the Itsekiri Regional Development Committee, IRDC, account at Keystone Bank, may worsen following threats by IRDC contractors to disrupt the operations of Chevron Nigeria Limited, CNL, over failure of IRDC executive to pay them for jobs executed.

 

Scoop by Fresh Angle International, revealed that the unnamed IRDC community contractors, are angry with Chevron, which is the sole funder of IRDC, because the company purportedly refused to sign the needed authorization to enable IRDC leadership pay them for completed jobs, running into hundreds of million naira.

 

One of the contractors, who spoke to Your Trusted Medium in the early hours of today, Tuesday December 1, on condition of anonymity, accused the multi national oil and gas major of stopping all financial transactions in IRDC indefinitely as a result of the controversial withdrawal of the N300 million belonging to 23 oil and gas/ impacted communities under Chevron's operational areas in Warri South, Warri South - West and Warri North Local Government Areas of Delta State.

 

Findings by This Newspaper, revealed that Delta State Government, Chevron Nigeria Limited and key executive of IRDC, are signatories to IRDC account, hence raising fresh controversies and litigations as to how some individuals under the guise of terms of settlement, would withdraw N300 million from IRDC account, without the knowledge of officials of Delta State Government and Chevron Nigeria Limited.

 

Indications emerged that Chevron Nigeria Limited, may have suspended all payments in IRDC, pending resolution of issues surrounding the controversial withdrawal of N300 million.
