MALLAM NUHU RIBADU, MISSING?
Icheoku has noticed the conspicuous absence of the first EFCC executive chairman and ACN presidential candidate in the last election, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, from the political scene as well as national discourse in the country recently. Whether this is a leave of absence, deliberately employed to create anxiety or additional interest over the where-about of the mallam, Icheoku cannot say. Or could it be that Mallam Nuhu Ribadu has lost favor amongst Nigerians and is no longer the media-favorite of the Nigeria fifth estate, that his visibility has suddenly waned? Anyway, whatever be the case, the fact of the matter is that Nuhu Ribadu has not been available nor availed himself upon recent political developments in the country; which forced Icheoku to ask, where is the mallam? Why has Mallam Nuhu Ribadu suddenly disappeared from the political circus since alleging that Olusegun Obasanjo is corrupt or tolerated corruption during his presidency via Wiki Leaks? That Nuhu Ribadu should so suddenly go blank on the radar screen should be a cause for concern to many Nigerians but so far it doesn't appear so? Icheoku says to Mallam Nuhu, if you are okay and still around, please hollah at Nigerians!
