One other member of Nuhu Ribadu's graduating class who was not allowed to graduate is Mr. Allen Deinbo Briggs. He was accused of stealing a digital camera belonging to one of the course participants while on study-tour in China. Icheokudotcom says, what a country, where a high-up, selected for such a state's policy course, is stealing an ordinary digital camera in far away China? What will happen tomorrow when such a deviant is appointed into an office of trust? Looting unlimited and you ask yourself why Nigeria is still crawling at a perpetual snail speed? It is because the caliber of men and women as this Mr. Allen Briggs are appointed and put in charge of key fiduciary institutions in Nigeria. Instead of making an effort to effect the fortunes of Nigerians, they are busy crafting plans to loot the country's resources and the treasury dry. According to the story, this Mr. Allen Briggs has a very poor mediocre record akin to a rap sheet that was bursting at the seams, at the Nigerian Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies where he was working as a Senior Fellow; which led to vociferous protest when he was nominated for the institute's course 30. However being from the same Niger Delta area as the vice president, Jonathan Goodluck, whose office is in charge of the institute, Mr Allen Briggs' way was forcibly cleared for participation in the course 30. The feud generated so much heat that a former acting director general of the Insitute, Yakubu Sankey, lost his job for protesting vehemently against Mr. Allen Briggs unmerited inclusion im the course 30. However, Mr. Allen Briggs went on a course organized tour to China and stole a mere $45 dollar digital camera, culminating to his final denial of graduation.
Icheokudotcom says such sordid story is only possible in a country like Nigeria where a sitting vice president meddles in departmental decisions, twisting and breaking arms as to who goes or participates in a course at an institute. It is only in Nigeria, the land of anything goes where it is ok for dog to eat dog! Even you Vice President Jonathan Goodluck could insert yourself into the Nigerian Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies internal decisions to influence a decision and effect an outcome based on your primodal, parochial ethnic concerns? Little wonder your meteroric rise in Nigerian politics - you play it real down and dirty and if it means ganging up with Olusegun Obasanjo to frame your former boss, DSP Alamieyeseigha, so be it provided you get what you want! Icheokudotcom has always read your unusually quiet demeanour as a cold-calculating, take no prisoner demeanour of ruthless hit-man. Who is now disgraced by your candidate's petty theft? Until you vagabonds in power in Nigeria learn how not to micro-manage every aspect of life in Nigeria, that country can never truly articulate a way forward out of its stagnation.
Icheokudotcom says, Enough of this stupidity! The whole world is watching the macabre dance of corruption and ongoing vindictiveness against Nuhu Ribadu because he dared to fight corruption in Nigeria; as there is no other acceptable reason for his present ordeals. Even the snake Olusegun Obasanjo, whom Nuhu Ribadu dutifully served, has scurried away in hiding and will not come to the defense and/or protection of his former enforcer Nuhu Ribadu, at this his hour of great travails. Finally, irrespective of the subterfuge used by the Umaru Yar'Adua's government for Nuhu Ribadu's current pains, Icheokudotcom says it does not augur well for the image of Nigeria - a country so enmeshed in courruption they will rather hang out to dry anyone who attempts to clean the augean stable of corruption in Nigeria. Nuhu Ribadu alone, as your continuous persecution of this former anti-corruption czar only attests to your unwillingness to eradicate corruption in Nigeria. The entire world is watching you as you dance naked in the world village-square thinking that you are getting at Nuhu Ribadu by humilitaing him. Two wrongs does not make a right and tomorrow, it might be your own turn to be so humiliated. Remember it was not too long ago that the name Nuhu Ribadu spelt terror in Nigeria especially to those considered anti-Olusegun Obasanjo, so why do you think you will last forever in power? Umaru Yar'Adua, please apply whatever retribution you may have on Nuhu Ribadu with caution - it does not bode well for the image of Nigeria or what do you care; afterall you are sitting very tight in the presidency knowing fully well that you did not earn or win it! Shameless mallam from goddam Katsina State!
