The EFCC has announced that it had been acting silly by going after FFK and questioning him about millions of naira allegedly laundered in his last post as Obasanjo’s Minister of Aviation. According to EFCC now, no such money was stolen during FFK’s tenur
about a dozen Nigerians in the Nigeria Immigration Service recruitment scam that fetched the Minister of Interior N700 million; unprecedented crude oil theft perpetrated under the watchful eyes of the Minister of Petroleum who herself is the subject of yet another National Assembly corruption probe. Which other government has this scandalous record? Is this the brief of a Christian President? Or a Muslim president? Or indeed any president? Is this the record that FFK will change when he returns to PDP?
It is regrettable that FFK is celebrating the “frank and candid manner” in which President Jonathan “hit back” at Sultan when the Sultan went to the Villa to complain about of the conference is currently constituted? It is the height of hypocrisy and paralysed reasoning for FFK, or anybody, to say it “makes a perfect sense to present one of such people from each of the two major faiths as a presidential and vice presidential candidate, respectively” if after winning election one of the duo will bring an unacceptable number of people from his faith to sit in a conference considered as the last chance for Nigeria to head off disintegration. What is the motive and how is it possible that one group of 80 million people is represented by 380 conferees and another one of equal strength (as per FFK’s fallacious figures) is represented by only 180? Is democracy still a game of numbers at all?
