Dear Sir,

RE: APPOINTMENT OF DR. NGOZI OKONJO-IWEALA AS CHAIRPERSON OF GAVI BOARD OF DIRECTORS

In the wake of media reports of arraignment by the Global Alliance for Vaccine and Immunization (GAVI) against the Federal Government of Nigeria over claimed abuse of assets through the Federal Ministry of Health and National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) with the end goal of youngsters inoculation in the nation, we appealed to the NPHCDA to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), requesting an intensive examination concerning the affirmations that has all around gouged the picture of the district. Taking after our request on this matter and reportage of same by nearby and universal news media, we got a reaction, went with confirmations, from the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), opposing cases that were contained in the GAVI's Cash Program Audit (CPA).

Through intentional backing of volunteers, accomplices and individuals from our system, we attempted free examination of the charges contained in the CPA report and, affirmation of statements and verification gave by NPHCDA. These included free and unannounced appearance to site of incinerators in Borno, Adamawa, Gombe, Bauchi, Nasarawa, Niger, Kano, Kaduna by these volunteers. Be that as it may, our examinations uncovered discoveries at difference with premise of extortion assertions contained in the report of GAVI, through its Cash Program Audit (C.P.A) on money gifts apportioned to Nigeria from 2011-2013.

We likewise discovered a letter composed by the New York office of UNICEF, an UN office and a globally rumored association, authoritatively exposing cases in the GAVI report, as it concerns their exchanges with NPHCDA under the agreement. The Federal Inland Revenue Services did composed to recognize receipt of assessments deducted by NPHCDA, as against position of GAVI. The Corporate Affairs Commission further gave confirmation contesting pernicious cases NPHCDA honor of agreement to imaginary and unregistered organization, as contained in the CPA report.

The Alliance further proceeded with its smear crusade of Nigeria by confounding the Letter of Understanding dated October 17, 2014 composed by the previous Minister of Health Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu as an affirmation of blame in the claimed botch of $2.2m, though, he had requested a joint post review compromise of the questioned CPA report furthermore dedicated the legislature to discount any unused asset found after the joint compromise with GAVI. Our few solicitations to GAVI for proof to verify the spurious claims in its arraigning report were repelled.

Notwithstanding colossal truths that rose up out of our examination and that of the EFCC, opposing GAVI's case to misrepresentation in its dealings with Nigeria, under the inspected period, the prompt past Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, under a sketchy way, Unprecedented ever, proceeded and watchfully discounted the questionable $2.2m to your association without response to NPHCDA or the EFCC.

Her most recent arrangement as Chairperson of the Board of Directors of GAVI conveys to fore an instance of genuine irreconcilable circumstance, in the amateurish and unpatriotic discount of $2.2m, and which likewise demonstrates that she was being compensated for her "devotion" to the association at the hindrance of her nation. The discount made without counsel with the Ministry of Health additionally uncovered the gross misuse of office by the previous clergyman.

In perspective of the above, CSNAC is thusly by this appeal, asking for that the late arrangement of Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as administrator of the Board of Directors be evaluated and suspended until every one of the spurious charges against Nigeria under this review are demonstrated by GAVI and the circumstances encompassing the suspicious and unpatriotic discount of the $2.2m are determined.

We have properly appealed to the Nigerian Government on this matter and some of your financing accomplices will be replicated in this challenge letter.
