Dasukigate: EFCC arrests Buhari’s associate, APC chieftain, Jafaru Isa

EFCC_operatives

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Wednesday night arrested a former military governor of Kaduna State and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Lawal Jafaru Isa.

Mr. Isa is the first chieftain of the APC arrested by the EFCC since the beginning of a sweeping probe into the alleged diversion of $2.1 billion meant for arms purchase by officials of the immediate-past administration.

Mr. Isa, Military Administrator of Kaduna State from December 1993 to August 1996 during the military regime of General Sani Abacha and one-time governorship candidate of the defunct CPC in Kano State, is a close friend of the embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

Mr. Isa, also a close political associate of President Muhammadu Buhari, was arrested at his Abuja residence located at Ajayi Crowther Street, Asokoro.

A witness told PREMIUM TIMES that operatives of the anti-graft commission invaded his residence around 9pm, and then whisked him away a few minutes later.

PREMIUM TIMES gathered that Mr. Isa, a retired brigadier general, was invited last week to appear before the commission on Wednesday (yesterday) to clear the air on “some questionable receipts” from the former NSA.

Investigators believe the retired soldier received over N100million from Mr. Dasuki.

Rather than honouring the invitation, sources said, Mr. Isa wrote a letter to the EFCC through his lawyer, seeking a postponement of his appearance date on the grounds of death of a relative.

Apparently dissatisfied with his excuse, the EFCC however arrested him to clarify the “questionable receipts”.

The spokesperson of the EFCC, Wilson Ujuwaren, could not be reached Thursday morning for‎ comments on the arrest.

But a top official of the commission confirmed the development.

”He has been wasting our time, and we just have to pick him up for our investigation to continue,” the official said.

      With PMB in the helms of affairs, Nigeria will be great again

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    I really don’t understand what EFCC is driving at. Since when did it constitute a crime to receive a gift? Did Buhari himself not receive 5 SUVs and $300k from the same Dasuki? A beg, this holier than thou attitude should stop. It is sickening. Until Buhari arrests the likes of Bola Tinubu, Kwankwaso and Amaechi who bankrolled his election, a genuine anti-corruption war would not have started. Meanwhile, when will our C-in-C order the Nigerian Army to release his WASC/Cambridge which PDP instructed the Army not to release before?

    • Remi

      Omooba, the gift collector. If must give and collect gift, must it be from people’s collective patrimony? would you allow the administrator of your parents’ estate to dole it out to Dick, Harry and Tom, at the neglect of the direct beneficiaries.

    • ladi

      Omooba,are u not smart enough to know d difference btw d cars Buhari collected n those sharing our money.thots like urs are d reason why nig is where it is now.ppl like u will see advance countries n envy but unknowingly destroying ur own country with ur thinking n ideas.
      Any smart person will not say corruption shld be overloooked.

      • progressive

        The pdp master almost swept our resources thanks for the emergence of buhari who is now fighting corruption now

      • he’s a wicked creature

    • Our prayer for you is that your boss should use your intended salary as gift to his lover in your presence and then tell you he does not have a salary for you. Better still, after executing your job in a contract and your client right in your presence share your money to his friends and families then tell you no money available to pay you. Then maybe you will learn to be truthful in your view about Nigeria. The blood of the Nigerian people that has been slaughtered in the North due to the wickedness of these criminals called leaders and political office holders will cry to the Almighty God and rain vengeance on everyone including there supporters. As far PMB is concern he is on track and doing a good job. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

      • progressive

        Kudos to pmb I think the pdp e rats can now keep quiet the corruption war is not selective anybody be who you are if it is been alleged that you are part of deal then you must be call upon to come and answer questions

        yes oh!!!

      • progressive

        I don’t know what certificate they are looking for, gej that has is a PhD holder what has he been able to do when he was in power

    • Blue blooded Nigerian

      I am not disputing the fact that sentiment is not in play here but if check well, the investigation is just on “arms deal”. Lets stay focus and do it to get result from it.

      • progressive

        The arms deal investigation is very important do you know the innocent life’s it has caused.

    • progressive

      Nonsense, clueless are you saying that buhari is not entitled to a car as a former military head of state. You guys shouldn’t be partisan all the time try and say the truth don’t politicised everything that you see

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        You are the one that is senseless and clueless because it is the SGF that gives Vehicles to ex-heads of state, not the NSA.

        • Oh!

          …and you know this because you read from whom, Keyamo?
          You are impossibly imbecilic! We therefore leave you with whatever deity you worship because we know no one qualified to handle your level of asininity.! We will keep you in our prayers.

    • Rommel

      Shame on you for peddling such senseless misinformation,I am not surprised because some people still believe today that Barack Obama was born in Kenya despite the fact that the very hospital where he was born in Hawaii has produced his birth transcript.

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        Shame on your parents for bringing a moron like you into the world.

        • Oh!

          This is not how reverse psychology works….you can not project your deficiencies unto others in hopes of …only God knows what.. More importantly, do not insult your parents like this. They deserve better.

        • Public announcement:

          Lated the “enemies within” are committing fraud by tying to pass themselves off as yoruba on-line

          You will know them by the words

      • Julius

        Lies makes them happy. Remember that I told you. Its in their DNA. He is a fake, a fraud. No mind him

    • Soja

      Whats your obsession with this WASC? We that put him there have seen that you don’t need WASC or Phd to remove yam from goats’ mouth. If you have anything against Buhari or his ministers either you petition EFCC now and let the whole world see the evidence you have against them or you patiently wait for the next 3 years and vote in somebody that can help you ‘witch hunt’ them too.

      So, for now, if you know you are not part of yam festival, just sit back and enjoy the show. The big masquerade is yet to be unveiled

    • Julius

      No, he did not receive 5 SUVs and $300 K from anybody. You okay now ?. I bet you will keep repeating it anyway. It makes your day better. Its a lie. He got 1 SUV as a former head of states. They all do. Jonathan has his own now.

    • Oh!

      Someone tried this same leg you are trying to walk with (perhaps it was you just repeating yourself).

      In any case, it has dawned on us that we must shut your dumb-ass up, else you will continue repeating the same crap.
      1. Go anywhere in the world, and you will find the same story. it is a crime to receive stolen goods!
      2. F $300K! Even if it is $300 Billion he received from Buhari, he has immunity and you can not prosecute him until after he leaves office.
      3. Your idea of a genuine war against corruption is exactly that, your idea!

      It means nothing to anybody else but you and the cockroaches in your cupboard.

      This is what you should do with it:

      There is a crevice on your body where the sun does not shine, take this your idea and shove it up there for

      safekeeping.
      4. Carry on with that WASC thing. We are not going to touch it. Who knows whether or not your imbecility is

      contagious.

      Now we must ask you to Get out of here and don’t come back until you raise your IQ above 44.

        • tundemash

          Mor0n, GEJ is history. We are just trying to mop up the damage the Clueless One caused this country.

  • Es3

    What a crafty diversion of attention from the ongoing and exclusively anti-PDP/Jonathan probe?!

    • No Bull …..

      Why didn’t Jonathan probe his predecessor ?

      • progressive

        It shows that gej is dumped he doesn’t know what he was doing then, is been surrounded by traitor

        • He surrounds himself “optional”

      • Simple incompetency!

      • Julius

        Becuase he has no balls and he is corrupt himself. !

        • No Bull …..

          I wonder how long before GEJ has a chat with EFCC ?

          • Julius

            I would not be surprised if he hasnt been invited , secretly .

      • Es3

        Are you referring to newspaper/TV screen probe or the silent type (with other remedial/mitigating measures running side-by-side to keep Nigeria/Nigerians going) that revealed Obasanjo’s $16 billion power projects scam, Halliburton scandal, among others???!

        • No Bull …..

          If I am not mistaking, PMB succeeded GEJ and for that reason, OBJ issue should have been handled by GEJ. Am I making any sense here?

          • Es3

            Yes and no…cos there was a probe, but not on the pages of newspaper and TV screens, etc. That’show Nigerians got to know about $16 billion power project scam and Halliburton!

          • No Bull …..

            Do mean to write that there was a perception of a probe?

      • Oh!

        You give Jonathan too much credit.

        The individual wearing the pants in Aso rock during his time as president was mama piss….and mama piss has no idea of what predecessor means. When you say predecessor, she is thinking of something inside that magic box you can use to watch youtube videos.

    • Night Crawler

      pdp are only looking for ways to divert peoples attention, no matter what they do, they will all be judged accordingly, if they fail judgement on earth, they will be judged in heaven

      • Es3

        Is it probe that Nigerians would eat and survive till when when Buhari/APC think of what to do the keep the people alive first???

        Is it the rising prices of everything due to over two months of fuel scarcity (which is a record of its own in the history of this country), worsening inflation rate, soaring exchange rate and the list is endless???! I hope we will not get to 40% inflation rate of 1984/85 too soon at this rate!

        • Henry_Itopa

          Obviously your tiny brain has not yet made the connection between our stolen commonwealth and the state which the nation is in.

          • Es3

            Really???

            Fully functional tiny brains are always ahead of your type of gigantic brain filled with ordinary water in the place of gray matter?! Evidences abound!!!

            It takes a fully functional brain to distinguish between confusion laced with propaganda from the truth and reality on ground?! Yes, it realizing that you have swindled in the name of ‘change’ a brain not doped to brim with propaganda to see that the presidential fleet is still intact till date and its being maintained at a cost far higher than what the previous office occupant was viciously criticized for?!

            Yes, it actually requires a brain not filled with just water to realize that successful recovery of misappropriated funds (IF ANY) are not achieved on the pages of the newspapers/TV screens, but through the institutions of state either being put in place or that’s already in place?! This is in an addition to knowing that while recovery is going on, the economy need to be run so that Nigerians would be alive to witness and PROBABLY enjoy the recoveries that MAY come or not?!

            It takes a fully functional brain to see through the obvious confusion that Buhari/APC is in on how to run the government, having not been prepared for it at all – ministers in good 7 months after take over, no budget till date, denials (habitually lying up and own) and re-acceptance of most campaign promises,etc.

            Yes, it takes that to that all Nigerians are seeing, using and having (power, roads, rail, agriculture, automobile industry and the list continues) today are ALL as left behind by Jonathan’s government. Though others like foreign reserves, excess crude account, strategic reserves, inflation rate, foreign exchange rate, etc are all off the hook in just 8 months?!!!!

            Yes, better a small brain with quality gray matter than a hydrocephalus big head and brain like yours!!!

    • favourtalk

      Are you unhappy again, don’t worry, PMB will always make you unhappy for the good deeds he will continue to do. Just seat back and relax

      • progressive

        If he is not happy then it means he has real problem that is confronting him

        • No Bull …..

          Buhari is not responsible for his happiness

      • Es3

        Unhappy is an understatement…as I’m so bothered/!!!

        Especially on how long Buhari/APC would be able to use these paper/TV screens probe to cover their lack of answers to the needs of ‘dying’ Nigerians who were lied to and voted hoping to see the promised “change”???!

        I hope you know that press-probe with worsening lives of Nigerians is a ‘change’, but for the worse?!

      • Oh!

        If you tell this monkey that calls himself es3 that Buhari just hired his long unemployed father, he will find imaginary sinister motives behind such employment and he will use it to insult Buhari.
        If however, Dasuki emerges from nowhere and gives his father N100 million for no stated reason at all, he will say it is manner from heaven!

        Do not waste your time with these fools. Bad bele makes people perform wonderful things.

      Buhari is fulfilling his promise it shows that anybody who is been alleged of any money will face the court of law

  • Damilola

    In times of war I think there is always something referred to as a “colateral damage”, it’s part of the Rules of Engagement.

    • concernednigerian

      That is why Buhari should be interrogated for collecting some vehicles from the office of the NSA on account of being a former Head of State when it is on record that Buhari never attended Council of State meetings throughout the tenure of the Jonathan administration. Attending a Council of State meetings where issues of national importance were being discussed were part of the functions of a former Head of State. This is called dereliction of duty on the part of Buhari hence it was fraudulent of him to have collected what he did not work for.

      • Damilola

        Bros you’re even missing something there sir. This same man declared repeatedly and his minions sang it infinito till the hunch is made break from their back with the Dasukigate revelations where they started editing and adjusting their position that their infallible god never received any entitlement from the FG either as HOS or retired General, cos he chose to be impoverished. Giving such huge entitlements to the vast needy flooding his in secured region is not even needed. But how that same man was “compelled” to calm down and take the humongous gift like someone with epilepsy tried to be stabilised, is what I don’t fathom, especially when they claimed it was his right. Heeeey!!!! Right bawo? So d constitution has been edited for their god to have his cars changed ones damaged? This naivety as no limit sir. I was even surprised to c in his scanty “let go off me” asset declaration that some cars in his compound were his entitlement, same entitlements he denied to ever received. Just continue enjoying this movie sir. The ones been persecuted are not saint, neither is the god in the Aso and his Apes lobster goons

        • ‘not worth the word “sir”

        • Soja

          I understand your view, but right now you can neither arrest Buhari nor sue him to court (he enjoys absolute immunity as the C-in-C of the Republic). So, while we wait for his tenure to end so that the in-coming president can start his prosecution, we should continue to celebrate and support how the goats are being made to vomit the yams. Or what do you think?

          • Damilola

            You’re right sir, the immunity covers it, but doesn’t change the fact that he’s as guilty as the “goats” in question. So as you rightly said, let’s enjoy the ride but never go on slumber. Not going on slumber suggest we remain objective and see how this ends, EFCC nor Buhari is designed to pronounce anyone guilty, evident in the presidential media chat.

        • Julius

          You are blabbing moron !. Can you even understand what you are blabbing about ?. Did Jonathan declare his assets ?

          • Damilola

            How can you ridicule ur god so low to the level of a “clueless pig?” how can you? Comparing a Seraphic to a “centipede” is the lowest disloyal stand a follower of the heavens in Aso cud do sir. That’s not fair

      • Soja

        You are right. However, remember Buhari presently enjoys immunity which means you will need to wait for about 3 more years before you start the interrogation.

        Meanwhile, let’s continue to deal with all the goats that were doing yam festival with our commonwealth

        • eclub

          He can be impeached.

      • Julius

        lolz. Now its back to Buhari collecting 1 single SUV that he is entitled to as a former head of state. Same SUV that Jonathan has now. You fools wont stop your nonsense. You like a parrot,repeat what you heard again over and over no matter how wrong. You keep blabbing while the rest of us moves on.

    • progressive

Nay—Rather Soyinka is using the usual Yoruba (Ogboju ati shakara) to get out of the mess he found himself——-while Nigerians suffer Yoruba Soyinka is being entertained with over 80m in Port Harcourt—No womnder he has been very supportive of the fake satanic adminstration of Buhari-what a country—One law for the Ijawe Nation none for the Fulanis ati Yorubas-separation is the answer

  • REDEEM

    Sad that Buhari is trying to lie his way through the hearts and minds of 9jas, with this fake Dasuki issue–which the Apes in APC are doing all to turn into another Chibok girls palaba!–Filled with lies–all designed to divert attention from the economic short comings of Buhari ati the Apes in APC–what a shame–!—-Sadly this is what happens when the fulanis ati yorubas are in power!!! The masses suffer-untold hardship–regardless of appeals from their imperialist Masters in IMF–animals-

    This is the CHANGE we all want , that nobody is above the law.

    • Luke Ede

      @Comfortkay:disqus

      Yes O! Sweep clean of all corrupt people regardless of party affiliation. Rotimi Amaechi must be arrested,
      Raji Fashola must be arrested, General Obasanjo must be arrested for Halliburton, and Okonjo-Iweala must
      be arrested for economic sabotage, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi too must be arrested for looting the Central Bank.
      Goodluck Jonathan must be arrested for stealing by tricks. And so on and so forth. No sacred cow anymore!

      • Okafor

        And finally Buhari himself

        • Burbank

          And Obama, Cameron, the Pope Putin and Ban Kim Moon too.

      • Comfortkay

        I can see the hand writing of PDP foot soldiers here, if you have anything @ hand against those men hire a lawyer and go to court and if you have nothing as evidence Keep quite forever, and l want to hear you say Amen

    First Five (5) steps for a genuine War against Corruption

    • Arrest Professor Wole Soyinka and Rotimi Amaechi for taking 82 million Naira
    as expense for the dinner served to Wole Soyinka on his visit to Port-Harcourt.

    • Arrest Jide Omokore who acted as proxy to Goodluck Jonathan over the whopping
    sum of four billion and five hundred million dollars found in Jide Omokore’s pocket.

    • Arrest Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala over the two billion dollars she approved to be released
    to Colonel Sambo Dasuki from defence funds- which was later shared and stolen away
    without her demanding account of expenditure as mandatory for a Finance Minister
    who is not in a conspiracy to steal, given that she could not delegate her constitutional
    duty to account to Colonel Sambo Dasuki.

    • Arrest Sanusi Lamido Sanusi over the sum of ₦55 billion he took with his hands in cash
    from the Central Bank of Nigeria and spent as he liked and as the spirit directed him, and
    including claiming to have spent one billion Naira of it to cook lunch for ten [10] policemen
    on guard duty at the Central Bank.

    • Arrest the tag team of Goodluck Jonathan, Adoke Muhammed and Dan Etete for stealing
    one billion dollars through oil bloc (OPL 245) and for violating money-laundering laws,
    by spiriting the money abroad, without a signature bonus paid into NNPC oil account.

  • Shetty

    I am still not impressed they should extend the fight to the oil sector to nimasa and all corrupt state governors

    • Abiboss

      Don’t you think is better for them to start from small in order to establish themselves first? NNPC is the real deal. It will involve international expertise because majority of the loots are outside the country.

  • TrueNja

    Fellow Nigerians, don’t get too exited. I still believe this war on corruption is sectional b’cos there are numerous petitions at EFCC against APC party rogue leaders and ministers currently sitting on the desk of Jafa Magu and EFCC have done nothing on those petitions..

    1) Former governor of Lagos State Ahmed Bola Tinubu – ECONET(now Airtel) and OANDO – where he used Lagos State money to buy shares at both companies, thereafter converted those shares to his personal and wife’s shares. LASU Idimu Road contractgate and numerous Lagos State landed properties that were exposed by AIT in 2015.
    2) Former Lagos State Governor Raji Fashola – N78M website corruption scandal, N3.4B Ikeja borehole corruption scandal, Ikoyi-Lekki bridge corruption scandal and numerious Lagos State landed properties scandals. These corruption petitions were submitted to EFCC by CACOL. Till today, EFCC have done nothing on those petitions instead Buhari awarded him ministerial position.
    3) Vice-President cum RCCG Pastor Yemi Osinbajo – . Osun State school building contractgate petition to EFCC that his company was involved.
    4) Osun State governor Aregbesola – diversion of state money and his son money laundering case – nothing has come of the petition sent to EFCC.
    5) Former Governor of Ekiti State Kayode Fayemi – N50M bed scandal and other Ekiti State money corruption allegations sent to EFCC by Governor Fayose since 2014. Instead he was awarded ministerial position by Buhari.
    6) Lai Mohammed – Lagos State contract corruption allegations at EFCC. Instead Buhari awarded him ministerial appointment.
    The above allegations were in pages of most Nigerian newspapers and online news.

    • OdeyPeter Odo

      Former Governor of Ekiti State Kayode Fayemi – N50M bed scandal and
      other Ekiti State money corruption allegations sent to EFCC by Governor
      Fayose since 2014. Instead he was awarded ministerial position by
      Buhari…. Since 2014 and it was swept under the carpet by GEJ?
      However, all these are states affairs. When PMB starts to target the states, Akpabio, Jang, Mimiko and all those you mentioned will get justice. Let us not distract the EFCC now as the job being currently done at the Federal level is a big one.

      • Burbank

    • Paul Young

      Cant you see that EFCC is focusing largely on this arms scandal first. After this then they might proceed to those cases you mentioned and other backlog of cases. How many officers do you think EFCC has? You think its easy to investigate just even one case? Do you know the amount of paperwork involed and bank accounts in several banks that have to be traced? My brother grab your popcorn and your drink and watch the movie unfold

    • Chinedu Don

  • MushinSpeaks

    Now that the change train has caught one of its own, can we hear the wailing wailers wailing? Can they boastfully say anti corruption war is still a witch hunt? The fight against corruption is real and whoever is caught will not be spared.

    • Burbank

      They will still called it a witch-hunt even if Buhari arrests Buhari.

  • eclub

    Buhari is aloof. He actually thinks he is some kind of deity.

    If you ask him what he means by war on corruption, I believe he means war on sins. He is out to punish sinners; akin to his war against indiscipline when he was a jack boot thuggish military dictator in the early 1980s.

    The obvious folly is that ALL have sinned, according to the BIBLE, especially Buhari himself.

    He is accused of stealing 2 Billion dollars, just by himself alone, and I believe it, because he has been using that money to run for office since; he declared that he only owns 150 head of cattle as a farmer; come on! Would Atiku let him win if he didn’t steal in billions? The answer is NO!

    I am going back to my concern, which is the genocide comitted by Buhari.

    • New Nigerian

      How would you know what Buhari thinks?…you either missed your medication or overdosed on it. Either case you need to dry out and stop obsessing over Buhari to the point of hallucinations.

I weep for Ngeria if some people are actually supporting these kleptomaniacs.I would understand if the members of their Fans Club are family members or other beneficiaries. It would be unimaginable however if one of the 99.99999999999999999999999% of the rest of us Nigerians who do not belong to the above mentioned groups,will voice support for these rapacious robbers.Let the games begin I say.
      As for the alleged $2bn dollars,as you put it.I would advise you to read up about the Justice Ayo Irikefe Commission report on the alalleged missing $2.8 billion dollars,then we will talk.

    Who is this unknown associate of Buhari? PT should pls place a limit on misinformation. It is becoming rather endemic. While Mr Rotimi ia spending N82m in hosting Mr Soyinka to a frivolous dinner And Alhaji Fashola is building a website with 73m naira,, the EFCC is busy inventing associates for Buhari…and PT becomes the medium for that propaganda. Why this dramatization of so called ant-corruption? Dasuki shared only $2.1 billion and you are making noise But IBB alone pocketed $12.7b and Buhari looks the other way. Rubbish!

    • Domingos

      Thank u. I hav notin 2 add.

    • Domingos

      Do you expect Buhari to prosecute an evil genius? By the way, ant theft, no matter how much money is pardonable as long as it is discovered after 4 yrs. This is how the brains of people not smart enough to pass WAEC reason. Whereas, in Largarde’s France, crimes committed over 50 years are prosecuted as long as there is new evidence and/technology to rely on. Thanks 4 d post anyway.

    • Adeolu

      As a matter of fact you are opposite of your name. If you are patriotic you will not endeavour to cause confusion and manipulate people against the fight of corruption by this regime. Given excuses on behalf of the looters by diverting the public attention to other cases is foolishness. Your case is the case of someone that caught over speeding and arrested by the police for over speeding but start to ask why did police failed to arrest the other driver over speeding. Any one whose cup is full needed to give account of his action. I am yet to read or hear from any group that their petition to EFCC in regards of certain people is never attended to. Also, it is not possible to serve every table at a party food at the same time. It is always from table to table. How would a sensible person expect EFCC to deal with every suspected looters at a time. Mr. Patriotic, you are mischievous. we know which side you are, definitely not on the side of Nigeria masses.

    THE MASSIVE AND VERY OBSCENE LOOTERS OF OUR MONEY INCLUDING GOODLUCK JONATHAN WILL PAY VERY DEARLY FOR THEIR CRIMES AGAINST NIGERIA, NIGERIANS AND HUMANITY QED ANS END OF STORY

  • Burning spear

    Sadly 99.9 percent of the said money went to the Fulanis ati Yorubas in the North and south west of Edo state—-ati the Ibo speaking areas of asaba—————–what a shame!———————Not one Ijaw man has so far been mentioned by the lying tongue of Buhari—in the creeks of the Niger delta——————————–In spite of the fact that Jonathan is Ijaw———————————–See how the Ijaws operate—-hate their people like hell————-? I asked for the sack of Dasuki long before now—He it was who killed Jonathan————-who destroyed the victory of Jonathan at the polls———So let Buhari grind his skulll in powder if he likes-who cares???????—————-Are they not both Fulanis??????————-when will they let my people go sha????????

    Besides, Prof Yakubu whom Buhari appointed as Chairman of INEC, cashed N850 million approved by their predecessors to mobilise a plastics chair manufacturer, Intermarkets Nigeria Limited. The company was to produce 70,000 units of chairs and tables for school children. having earlier manufactured for UBEC under Phase 1 of the project.

    Interestingly, over five years after another N850 million was drawn for Phase 2 of the manufacturing contract, Intermarkets is still waiting to be mobilised. Yet Buhari who appointed Prof Yakubu as Chairman of INEC claims to be fighting corruption—What about Damnbazua who stole over 2b from the Army—–Amaechi 58b–Fashola 4 trillion—-Fayemi 49b——-Col Ali of Customs Nko who aided in hanging Ken Saro Wiwa-nko—Buhari himself collected over 300,000 doallras from Dasuki ati 5 vehicles——————Is that the type of thief to fight corruption in Nige

  • Very Proud Oily IZON Redeemer

    The National chairman of Labour Party, Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, in an interview with Vanguard
    What is your stance on the fight against corruption?
    Have you ever heard anywhere in the world, where a government subjects security into this kind of disgracing insult like what’s obtainable in Nigeria right now? I have never seen anything like it. Buhari has no, if he has, he has no advisers or he doesn’t listen to advice.
    What do you say about the evidence so far of the money paid through the office of the NSA, the Arms scandal?
    The paid money to the NSA man, also the NSA man said he gave Buhari car, so what are they telling us. And you know the man said if he opens up, he will open up canker worms. So leave that aspect of NSA because it is not good for our image, it is not good for our security; no nation ever subjects its security to this kind of thing. And it is not done with sincerity of purpose, it is for selfishness, you want to create something out of the man.
    But is that how security fund in other parts of the world is utilised?
    Yet, Buhari’s cult followers came out with a giant bill board -#IstandwithBuhari. Just way of institutionalizing what is obtainable in North Korea in Nigeria–This is what happens when the Fulanis ati Yorubas are in power–the masses moan in pain–and mourn the muder of their kit and kin by boko haram in the Fulani north–let my people go Buhari—
