NIGERIA EFCC IS INCOHOOT WITH CORRUPT OFFICIALS!
To this bombshell Icheoku screams 'DAYLIGHT ROBBERY'! Really, what other evidence does this Tiv woman want to see to prosecute these "armed bandits" masquerading as politicians? A cursory look around the country will show that evidence abound to secure life prison sentences for these financial criminals were there a stomach in this woman to take the fight to these political vampires. All you have to do is to juxtapose whatever "accomplishments" they recorded viz-a-viz the amount of revenue received during the same period and then let them account for the difference. Worst still, let them show you how much they were worth before 1999 and then check how much they are worth today and then do the math. Our verdict at Icheoku is that this is a brazen cover-up and nostalgically Nuhu Ribadu is greatly being missed. The quagmire called Nigeria will continue in its topsy-turvy dance of death until some form of revolution instills a new order therein. How can you protect against future looting of the treasury of the country Nigeria, when her previous looters are being praised as very patriotic? It is incredulous as it is mind-numbing that even Olusegun Obasanjo with the widely publicised $16 billion dollars (bridge to nowhere) energy/power contracts was found innocent and adjudged by the EFCC to be a Mother Theresa? It is mind-boggling indeed and one asks is there any hope for Nigeria? You tell me! That the whole world is watching this macabre dance of corruption and its cover-up is meaningless to these loonies now running the EFCC and like many a Nigeria who is Ostrich-like in hiding their heads in the sand thinking that their body which is outside is not important; this very woman Farida has once again added impetus to the assertion that Nigeria and corruption are two evil twins! Who is fooling who, Nigeria?
Now read the story and make up your own conclusion: -
Against public demands for a probe into the eight-year rule of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] on Monday says it has no evidence of any corrupt practices against him. EFCC Chairman, Mrs. Farida Waziri said in Abuja pointedly that Chief Obasanjo had no case with the commission, stressing, “As far as we are concerned, there is no case against Chief Obasanjo before EFCC.” Farida, who was reacting to a question put to her during the round-table discussion of The Initiatives, a group of lawmakers in the House of Representatives said apart from having no case against Obasanjo, most of the case files on top political office holders, particularly former state governors contained no vital evidence to prosecute them.
