Central African Nations To Merge Two Regional Bodies

Central African ministers in charge of economic integration have drawn up a program to eventually merge the regions two economic blocks — the Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CEMAC), and the Economic Community of Central African states (ECCAS). The ministers say the two structures are getting too expensive to run and their conflicting roles make integration difficult.


The result is that the region has remained one of the poorest in the world despite its plentiful natural resources. Dr. Leon Modubu Konande, political analyst at CEMAC, said the rivalry now hurts ECCAS, created 34 years ago to reduce inequalities and poverty in Angola, Burundi, Rwanda, Cameroon, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Chad, and Sao Tome and Principe.

CEMAC was created for the same purpose in 1999 by Gabon, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Chad, the Republic of Congo and Equatorial Guinea. “ECCAS cannot organize a meeting inviting ten countries and CEMAC organizes the same meeting with the same objective inviting six countries.

It is not normal. At central Africa all the countries are very rich, but we don’t have a common integration process,” said Konande. Emile Ahohe, director of the Central African regional office of the Economic Commission for Africa, said such conflicts have caused central African states to fail to achieve their main goal of improving the living conditions of their people.

“They need to have one common trade scheme rather than two in the sub region. If you take the issue of macroeconomic convergence, there has to be one scheme for convergence.

If you take the issue of free movement of people there has to be one harmonized scheme between CEMAC and ECCAS,” said Ahohe. Cameroon’s Minister of the Economy, Emmanuel Nganou Djoumessi, said the goal of a functioning common market and customs union remains distant and that is the reason why millions of people are mired in poverty.

He said that despite the region’s potential, economic growth was barely 3 percent last year instead of the 5.2 percent forecast, and even then, the growth hardly trickles down to the people.

Jonathan Administration Pressured PricewaterhouseCooper To Revise Report On The $20 Billion Oil Sales Fraud

After analyzing the audit report, the expert concluded that the much-anticipated release of the audit report of Nigeria’s accounts and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has provided few insights into the $20 billion that was allegedly not remitted to the Federal Accounts.


Mr. Jonathan authorized the release of a version of the report one day after President-elect Muhammadu Buhari disclosed that his administration would immediately investigate the allegation by former Central Bank Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi to the effect that the NNPC had failed to account for more than $20 billion in crude oil exports by Nigeria.

Mr. Sanusi, who was fired by President Jonathan shortly after he made the allegation, is now the Emir of the ancient city of Kano.

“The report reveals that PricewaterhouseCooper was recalled by Nigeria’s auditor general in January 2015 to share its original findings with the NNPC,” said the expert. He added, “At this point, PwC received ‘a significant amount of additional information’ from the NNPC, which was not reportedly not provided during the original review period.

Consequently, the so-called updated report released by Jonathan contains significant changes from the previous report.”

He stated that it was important to investigate the nature of the “additional information” produced by NNPC “to determine whether it was simply a tactical deployment of deceptive data and information to color the audit outcome.”

According to the Abuja-based expert, “it is highly curious that the NNPC was apparently inept in the quality of information it originally provided to the auditors. Given the charged nature of the controversy generated by the matter, one would expect that the NNPC would be scrupulous in providing exhaustive information to PricewaterhouseCooper at the initial stages of the audit.”

He stated that it was important to examine and evaluate the additional information to ascertain that it was not part of a scheme to compromise the audit process.

The oil sector expert added that it was significant that, despite the revision, the sanitized version of the audit still indicated “there was a shortfall of $1.48 billion in oil revenue that the NNPC needed to refund to the Federal Accounts.”

Our expert also remarked that the PwC report also admitted that it did not even constitute an audit. He pointed to a section of the report that read, “the procedures we performed did not constitute an examination or review in accordance with generally accepted standards or attestation standards.” The PwC report also warned that its findings cannot “be relied upon by any other party (third party)” to Nigeria’s auditor-general.

“This is another curious aspect of the audit,” according to our expert. “Basically, it’s as if the audit company was telling the world that the work they set out to do did not follow stringent standards of auditing. And yet, the Jonathan administration had promised Nigerians a thorough audit. And a thorough-going audit is certainly what the government owes the Nigerian people.”

PwC is one of the world’s leading audit and consulting companies. SaharaReporters could not ascertain how much PwC charged the Nigerian government for its work on the saga of $20 billion in missing oil revenue.
