This message is for Nigerians whether you are PDP supporters or APC apologist. Christian or Muslim. I think Nigerians need to learn more about Nigeria, most of us don't even know anything about the things that goes on in the running of the affairs of our great country. Let's pause for a minute and think about the way we fight corruption in Nigeria. Last week, The former governor of Jigawa state was arraigned by EFCC alongside his children for receiving N1.35 billion kickback from a government contractor . Few days later, he was flown to Abuja and granted bail on self recognition!. So he is a free man now at least till next 7years, because case no dey finish here till minimum of 7years plus. Now, calculate what tax payers are losing . 1. Stolen N1.35B + EFCC officers salary + Legal fees. Keyamo and Co will collect nothing less than N50m to prosecute any case. At the end of the day, the court will give a verdict that this man is not guilty.( N1.35b fraud then go home on self recognition). So the more you steal the more you will be recognized as VIP in Nigeria. Is this type of anti corruption war making sense at all. More information & enlightenment would go a long way in deriving the required CHANGE that we truly want & clamour for in our society. May God help and give us wisdom to put this country in the right path . Amin. ... See MoreSee Less
