PDP demands Buhari’s impeachment over Babachir Lawal, Oke’s sack

Ahmed Makarfi
PDP National Chairman, Ahmed Makarfi.

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has demanded the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari over his response to corruption cases involving the former Secretary to the Government, Babachir Lawal, and former National Intelligence Agency, boss, Ayodele Oke.

The party, while calling for the prosecution of the duo, said Messrs. Lawal and Oke were being treated under “a different set of laws.”

The two top officials, who have been on suspension for months, were relieved of their duties on Monday by President Buhari after widespread outcry.

Mr. Babachir has since been replaced by Boss Mustapha while Nigerians await the replacement of the NIA boss.

The PDP in a statement signed by the party’s spokesperson, Dayo Adeyeye, said it was not pleased with the action.

The opposition party said the act is ‘‘an insult to the collective intelligence of the people who waited patiently for the President’s reaction to the humongous act of corruption by two of his principal aides.’’

Its statement read in part:

“First and foremost, we had disagreed with the President last year when he decided to set up the panel headed by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo to investigate the matter because we thought that was the wrong course of action to take.

“Ordinarily, cases of corruption or alleged cases of misappropriation of funds are supposed to be referred to institutions that are saddled with the responsibility to investigate and prosecute such matters which is the ICPC and the EFCC if there is any prima facie case against them.

“But it appears not all animals are equal under the Buhari APC administration. Some people are treated with kid gloves while others particularly those in opposition are subjected to all manner of harrowing experiences.”

It said the president’s actions were ‘impeachable.’

“This is an impeachable offence. So, the President cannot just sack Ayo Oke and Babachir Lawal and expect us to be clapping for him.

“We believe that we are operating under a democracy and a constitution that governs our affairs. To have subjected these people to different sets of rule and treatment is totally unacceptable.

“Nigerians are the same under the law and Babachir Lawal and Ayo Oke should not be tried by the Presidency while others are hounded by the EFCC and ICPC.

“These actions of Mr. President are therefore a breach of his oath of office which he swore to defend the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and to be fair and just to all Nigerians without any discrimination whatsoever.”

“The action of the President is a gross violation of his constitutional oath and therefore constitutes a veritable ground for impeachment .Using and applying different laws to different people in the country is a direct assault on the constitution and the rule of law.

“Consequently, we call on the National Assembly to begin processes to impeach the President for breach of the Constitution and fragrance disobedient to the laws of Nigeria.

“We totally reject these actions and the law should follow its full course on the issues of these officers. In other words, their case should be referred to the EFCC for proper investigation and trial, more so when the President has not told us what the report of the findings was.

“Nigerians are entitled to know the findings of the panel headed by the Vice President. The report should be made public since it is the people’s money that is involved.

“The President has by his actions taken Nigeria to the level of a banana republic. We are not in a banana republic, this is the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Three successive governments of the PDP did not act in the manner President Buhari is acting.”

“There is no doubt that the sudden sack of the SGF and the DG of NIA is just a consequence of the backlash on the Abdulrasheed Maina saga. Up till now there’s no answer to the pertinent questions we have asked on the Maina saga.”

“The government cares less about the feelings and opinions of Nigerians. This kind of arrogance is unprecedented in the history of this county. We again call for the arrest and investigation of the two Ministers involved in the return of Maina into the Civil Service, that is, the Minister of Interior, Bello Dambazau and Abubakar Mallami, the Attorney General of the Federation & Minister of Justice.”

Fayose too

Also, Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, a notable critic of the president, described the sack as a face-saving measure.

“The President only acted to save his face from the global embarrassment caused him by the outcry of Nigerians on the news of Maina’s reinstatement,” Mr. Fayose said Monday.

A fugitive ex-pension boss, Abdulrasheed Maina, accused of corruption, was recently secretly reabsorbed into the civil service with the connivance of top government officials. After a public outcry, President Buhari ordered his dismissal.

Governor Fayose, who demanded the immediate arrest and trial of Maina as well as the sack of all those who perpetrated his reinstatement, described the president’s actions as fraudulent and shameful.

In a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose, who likened Buhari’s anti-corruption fight to a situation where “Satan is calling Judas Iscariot a sinner,” reminded Nigerians that he said ‘‘before now that the kind of corruption that will be witnessed in President Buhari’s government will be unprecedented and that he had been vindicated.’’

“If Maina, who was declared wanted for corrupt practices by the International Police Organisation, (INTERPOL) after he was dismissed from office by the Civil Service Commission in 2013 for allegedly committing N2.1 billion pension fraud while in office, could be secretly reinstated and even promoted without writing the required civil service promotion examination, no one should be in doubt any longer that Buhari is not fighting any corruption.”

Governor Fayose described President Buhari and his men as defenders and protectors of corruption.

“There is no doubt that the sudden sack of the SGF and the DG of NIA is just a consequence of the backlash on the Abdulrasheed Maina saga. Up till now, there’s no answer to the pertinent questions we have asked on the Maina saga,” Mr. Fayose said.

However, Mr. Buhari’s party, the All Progressive Congress, APC, in a brief statement Monday, signed by party spokesman, Bolaji Abdullahi, commended the president for the action.

It said it was pleased with the appointment of the new SGF, Boss Mustapha.

“Mustapha is a competent, loyal and dedicated leader, who over the years has demonstrated that he has a pan-Nigerian outlook,” the party said.

    PDP should showmitself to be a viable opposition andmstop talking like a bitter broken drum, stop whining and pining that Buhari jas slightly emoved onemof the things they were using to attack him by finally sacking and replacing Babachir and Oke, i dont expect the, to,comend but i expectthem to be constructive, U ARE ASKING FOR BUHARI TO BE IMPEACHED, DID THE PDP PRESIDENTS UNDER 16 YEARS NOT COMMIT MANY IMPEACHABLE OFFENCES? instead they should point out the delays, that Buharis hands were forced, that Babachir and Oke should be prosecited, that others in the government and other scandals not covered up but dealt with, or after all this noise is PDP now saying Oke, Babchir,,Maina etc should notmbe sacked? I AM ONLY INTERESTED IN THE TRUTH COMING TO LIGHT, NOT ALL THIS POLITICAL GAMES OF DECEPTION.

    Premium Times Editor,

    President Buhari of Nigeria is administratively incompetent and it
    shows. He reportedly ‘terminated’ the third most senior member of the
    executive branch of government – the Secretary to Government – but he
    gave no reason, meaning that Babachir Lawal – the terminated Secretary
    to the Government
    – has no case to answer for wangling 250 million Naira
    from the treasury and awarding that whopping sum to a private company he’d
    himself promoted and incorporated.

    If President Buhari wants
    to be seen as honest he’s failed again as he did on his claimed 1961
    Wasc/Gce certificate – which nobody in Nigeria has ever seen, not one
    person, not even the Principal of his secondary school in Katsina who
    should have been the first person to receive it from WAEC and handed it
    over to Muhamadu Buhari in 1961, i.e; if Buhari ever sat for that
    Waec/Gce examination. Here again, the underlying corruption of Babachir
    Lawal is impliedly swept under the carpet as if he was only terminated
    at the pleasure of President Muhamadu Buhari.

  • We call on Buhari to honor all the courts injunctions and release Dasuki on bail from his gulag immediately. Apparently there are two set of laws under this administration. One for the corrupt APC privileged and untouchables and the other for the percieved PDP political enemies.

    • pambegua

      Even in USA there are offences you committed that waves your human right. USA you claimed is your name got millions of offenders whose offence has NATIONAL IMPLICATION in Guantanamo prison. Majority of the offenders got BAILABLE courts orders but were not released from Guantanamo prison because NATIONAL INTEREST is bigger that PERSONAL(DASUKI OR ELZAKZAKI) INEREST

  • NaijaMindOfChange

    I think pdpigs need surgery…no sense in d party

  • Pwankit Goshit

    This has just confirmed what Distinguished Senator Shehu Sani said that the Buhari led Government uses deodorant on corrupt officials within his circle, but uses insecticide when fighting corruption within the ranks of the opposition. This is a sad development that must resisted by all if we must come out of this menance

    • Musa M. Dantsoho

      With the past administration no deodorant heard of, lest talk of insecticide in fighting corruption.

    • pambegua

      You are wrong. This confirmed BUHARI can used OTAPIAPIA(ACID) on APC members if they are found wanting. If BUHARI fired every of his staff for MERE allegations without Confirming the allegations then he becomes a despot. PMB is a DEMOCRAT now no longer a military leader who fire at the smell of allegations. The man is MR DUE PROCESS in taking decisions. Like him or hate him, Believe it or don’t BUHARI DETEST CORRUPTION

      • Suleiman Alatise

        Corruption made Buhari sick, almost killed him but for God almighty.

    • Suleiman Alatise

      There is nothing distinguish about Sheu Sanni.

  • PeaceMaker

    PDP is shameless!! That is the party, when it was in charge – 1
    1. Sacked and almost, but for his pedigree, jailed Sanusi when he blew a corruption whistle on Diezani;
    2. Refused to sack or handover Diezani for investigation despite the humongous allegations of corruption against her;
    3. That refused to sack or handover Princess Stella Odua for investigation, despite the allegations of corrupt practices in the aviation sector but instead replaced her in a routine cabinet reshufflement which was accompanied by a thank you for a job well done message;
    4. Does not have any record of any major punishment for wrong doing in all its years in office despite the fact that corruption thrived unlimited during that era!!

    They should be clapping for this administration. It is doing what the PDP lacked the balls to do!!!

    • sab

      Did PDP not send Bode George tojail over alleged corruption issues?
      What about IGP Tafa Balogun?
      Please stop twisting facts.

      • progressive

        Investigation is still going on sgf allegation so nobody should be saying that buhari is not fighting corruption.

    • progressive

      Jonathan government is the most worst government we’ve ever had in the country, 20 billion dollars was missing during Jonathan era it a pity that there are still lunatic idiotic pdp e rats still ranting on here

  • Suleiman Alatise

    Sorry PDP, Buhari has beaten you at your own game by sacking them, especially Babachir, remember there was a louder outcry over Oduah, did your government even suspend her talkless of sacking.
    PDP should pack well.

    • utolason

      PDP is a collection of shameless and deceitful individuals.

      • progressive

        You are right indeed this same party made nigeria to go into recession if not for the intervention of buhari who made us in making sure that nigeria was able to pull out of recession

    • progressive

      Pdp should go to hell they have nothing to talk about a party that is know for people deceiving people

      • Guest

        You meant People Deceitful Party

  • James Edward

    For those who said they have a messiah that will eradicate corruption and make Nigeria a better place, I hope they are happy with the direction of the buhari govt?

    Despite their much trumpeted education and smartness, Nigerians have by electing buhari shown they are the most backward black society today.

    • Usher- Join The Revolution

      Yes, we are happy!

    • Powerlessconscious

      shutup. even in america, there is corruption. but minima. under buhari too, it is minima. God bless baba.

  • Musa M. Dantsoho

    PDP would never stopped being shamelessly funny. Thank God, the party was justifiably kicked out by Nigerians for good. Quite a number of examples of committed impunity by the party quoted on the podium suffice.

    • gaskiya

      For good ke?!! We shall see!!

      • Musa M. Dantsoho

        Yes! For good.

      • Powerlessconscious

        WE SHALL SEE. PDP IS DEAD.

  • pambegua

    I don’t understand what PDP means. Is BUHARI a court of Law that PROSECUTE? Senate investigate and send their report. BUHARI slowly read And review the report and discovered there are FACTS in the report. Today he sacked The GRASSCUTTER which it’s his constitutional right of HIRED AND FIRED. The Arm of Government place with the responsibilities of PROSCUTING offenders is Not BUHARI, but independent EFCC, ICPC, POLICE NAFDAC,JUDICIARY. PDP should please SHUT UP and allowed the JUDICIARY and others(EFCC n ICPC) perform their duties. BUHARI cannot turned himself to EFCC and JUDICIARY at the same time. Shameless PDPIGS

    • Sab

      In your wisdom, who took Senator Misau to court over the allegation against the IGP? What is the role of the AGF? Is EFCC not under law to send outcome of their investigations to the AGF for legal and prosecutionary power? Please stop thinking Nigerians have fowl brains the way you twist facts anytime anyone of your own gets trapped in corruption issues.

  • Cornelius Jelili Ajibola Olanr

    Pdp’s you’re too small to carry out your threat. If babachair is to be probed, he only will be made to pay for his sins. But if however the NOA boss is to be probed, both goodluck Jonathan and the rest of you will be seriously indicted. The money found with the man was part of the 2015 election loot. So my advice to you is to tread softly and be content with Pmb handling of the matter. At least corruption & insecurity is better handled in this government than in the previous one

  • Usher- Join The Revolution

    Bla bla bla………

  • Akin Falegan

    May not like or approve of the messenger, but the facts above are not objectively disputable. Unless what Buhari did with the SFG and DG of NIA is followed up with prosecution of both men for corruption and also to keep on at dealing with the crooks that are still high up in this government such as the ministers mentioned in the piece on Maina’s case and some other ministers that used to be governors of states that have cases to answer. PDP will be right that this is just a smoke screen to razzle-dazzle Nigerians. And that will never work, Buhari current move is right in my own opinion but he must keep at it for it to be credible. Else, he is a scam artist. Let’s wait and see what follows, we are watching.

    • pambegua

      Nobody believes PMB will sack the GRASSCUTTER. I guess you will not believe the GRASSCUTTER will have his day in court. I TRUST PMB KWARUPTION makes him sick

    • Powerlessconscious

      Buhari is not efcc or judiciary. Stop looking for PERFECT GOVT. Maybe you have to go to heaven.

      Mind you, according to the knowledge educated people got from school, APC has done better than PDP.
      and APC is not meant to be perfect but to perform better than PDP.

      Economically APC has done well.
      Security APC has done well.
      Infrastructure APC has done well. Though you may not see this one immediately but we follow it up.
      power, road, rail, Mine, Agriculture.

      APC has performed better and there is room for improvement.

      But for 16 years, PDP was a DISASTER and WASTE OF TIME.
      Thuggery, Arm robber, cultism, hire killer, ritualist, militant, bokoharam, chibok girls, above all, BRIBERY AND MASSIVE LOOTING, coupled with UNSUSTAINABLE SYSTEM of government that made CHINA and europe and india to turn nigeria to DUMPING GROUND by which our Local industry DIED.

      Those are the LEGACIES of PDP.
      God forbid them to come to power again. The party of LOOTERS. and for the LOOTERS. IS PDP.

      • Akin Falegan

        When pseudo name is used online, one won’t know the correct address for the person therefore, sir/madam, you must be living in a world of illusion judging by the contents of your post. Or you may be delusional which is far worst. Anyways, I have no pleasure in either APC or PDP, they are two fingers of a leprosy hand. Neither is worthy to rule Nigeria if sanity reigns. Very few are in APC today that have not been in PDP sometimes in the past. Begging facts will not change what is obtainable in Nigeria today and nothing will change for good until people face up with truth which is very hard to get from people like you. Propaganda is not change, content, visible and tangible achievements is what change is sir or ma, whichever you are. Wake up from your dream, to date Buhari is not any better than Jonathan, maybe tomorrow he may and that’s what we pray and hope for. But what is on ground now is shameful to say the least and no amount of paid propagandist and propaganda can obscure the reality known to all.

        • Powerlessconscious

          You have not said anything. Ambiguous long essay. A better government deserve to continue. Not a PERFECT GOVT. APC is better than pdp 16years of DISASTER.

  • thusspokez

    “This is an impeachable offence. So, the President cannot just sack Ayo Oke and Babachir Lawal and expect us to be clapping for him.

    The PDP spokesperson should cease belittling the seriousness of impeachment.

    Here is a scenario for possible impeachment (following a report of alleged crime):
    (1) The EFCC investigates and goes to arrest Babachir.
    (2) But President Buhari interjects to stop the arrest.
    (3) Mr. Magu refuses to back down.
    (4) Consequently, President Buhari sacks Mr. Magu over what the former describes as insubordination.

    In this scenario, one could clearly identify an obstruction to law enforcement by the President — an impeachable offence.

    • pambegua

      Please Educate those those Kwarup PDPigs

      • Frank Bassey

        You deserve pity, and should be a Janitor in Buhari’s house. Should MBuhari have set up an internal investigative panel to “investigate” a matter already investigated by the Senate and the report made public? Why did MBuhari clear Lawal in the first place, before “suspending” and now “sacking” him? In decent societies, MBuhari will not last a day longer in office. That happened in South Korea.
        My joy, however, is that NEMESIS is, and will continue fighting for Nigerians. We voted GEJ/PDP out of office because of corruption; it is obvious now that we really over-rated MBuhari’s integrity.

        • pambegua

          Shut up. You mean if I tell you ‘FRANK BASSEY your wife is sleeping with another man’ You mean YOU FRANK BASSEY will not investigate my allegations RATHER you will kill your wife? Shut up. No wonder you are Basset from UGEP in Cross River state who doesn’t values HUMAN BEINGS

          • Frank Bassey

            Now that it has been revealed that Buhari knew about the illegal reinstatement of Maina, can you see why the flood of misfortune will never fail to carry all of you away from this land? When it suits you, it is right; when it doesn’t it becomes evil. If I know I have an adulterous wife, what is there for me to “investigate”. All those pretending to be giving this country good leadership at the expense of poor, common ordinary Nigerians, will never escape the Judgement of whatever they believe in.

          • pambegua

            If you know PMB as a military president HE JAILS YOU FIRST AND ALLOWED YOU TO PROVE YOUR SELF FROM JAIL but now he is a democrat, He allowed all avenue’s of investigation concluded before he takes action. The LAW says ‘ IT IS BETTER 100 CRIMINAL ESCAPE JUSTICE THAT ONE INNOCENT MAN TO BE JAIL UNJUSTLY. Now that it is confirmed beyond reasonable doubt that the GRASS CUTTER is guilty as Senate recommended PMB shows him the door.

          • Frank Bassey

            Then, the rule should apply to ALL, not a select few. Why did the rule change in the case of the Judges whose homes were invaded in the odd hours last October? Why would the Presidency clear an accused government official BEFORE investigating him/her? What does that suggest, Pambegua?

          • pambegua

            Since PMB became aware of Maina’s illegal reinstatement he took action immediately. He instructed Maina’s name strucked out of Civil Service Commission. He instructed that a COMMITTEE TO INVESTIGATES THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT LED TO MAINA’S REINSTATEMENT AND SUMMIT THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS WITHIN TWO WEEKS. This may take time but JUSTICE WILL PREVAILED. What else do you want? You wan pmb to fire everybody that was alleged to be involved without following DUE PROCESS? Tomorrow the same you FRANK BASSEY will still accused PMB of acting like a military dictator

          • Frank Bassey

            You are a funny character. When did Buhari become aware of Maina’s illegal re-instatement? Please respond, Pambegua.
            If he could act as military dictator in the case of the Judges accused of corruption, what made the cases of Maina, Lawal and Oke different?

      • progressive

    Diezani : Where was EFCC?
    Dasuki : Where was EFCC?
    Babachir : Where is EFCC?

    Nigerians have a habit of letting off the real culprits — in this case the cowardly and inept EFCC. With regard to ‘EFCC Untouchable Card’ holders so-called “high profile” cases, the EFCC always go (Absent Without Official Leave) AWOL — It turns a deserter to avoid doing its job.

    Of course, later it will get its friends and stooges in the Nigerian media to help convince gullible Nigerians that the politicians are to blame — not its own cowardice and unfit for purpose.

            You deserve mercy. Only last week, Hamid Ali, Customs boss, lamented that the PDP gangs in APC are the ones pulling PMB back. If he was right, where is the repentance? Are you aware that President Buhari knew about Maina’s re-absorption into the Civil Service? If the house is headed by a Corrupt, Pretentious, Deadly and Insensitive Oga, what is there to learn to repent? This is why I do not wish well all of you that continue to support and applaud the evil going on in this administration. We voted PDP/GEJ our because of bad leadership, and we are in for the worse, yet someone is applauding the happenings. Will it be well for such persons?

            Of course, we are progressing in retrogression. Are you faulting my points on corruption injected into this government by Babachir Lawal, Ayodele Oke, NNPC leadership ….? Why would Buhari have two laws for fighting corruption – one for his associates, the other for the opposition and critics? Would you ever have nursed the idea that Buhari, with all his anti-corruption stance, would give a nod to the re-absorption of Maina? Could you have imagined that Mr Integrity would sign NNPC contracts on sick-bed while he had Ag. President at home? Well, with vampires like you, Nigeria is progressing; that is why this country must be restructured.

          • pambegua

            We agreed curruption is in APC but APC are dealing with it. Corruption was in PDP and PDP were romancing Corruption. This is the difference between APC n PDP.

            Please, tell me: HOW is APC dealing with Corruption – Case by Case, please.

          • Powerlessconscious

            I will continued to tell you “NO MATTER HOW STUBBORN YOU ARE” the shortfall in apc govt “CAN NEVER” be COMPARE to 16years DISASTER of PDP.

            NNPC contract was not stealing, kachikwu only complained of due process. But The BIAFRAUDS anti-govt, were the one shooting stealing.

            It doea not concern you if the opposition pdp were humiliated. PDP have humiliated Nigerians in the past with their CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES. and Nigerians voted buhari to humiliated PDP back.

            No matter any conspiracy story you cooked, it CAN NEVER be compare to 16years DISASTER of PDP. PDP 16years was a curse in the history of Nigeria.
            And Nigerians CAN NOT go back to Egypt PDP again. Pdp is dead and dead forever.

          • Frank Bassey

            How can you compare a three year Looting/Stealing spree with 16 years of “Disaster”.

            NNPC contract was stealing, outright stealing. GMD took unilateral decision on the award of contracts. He said he had the approval of the “Presidency”. But he lied. VP Osinbajo has denied giving approval to the contracts. Secondly, it has not been shown that those contracts were presented at and approved at FEC. So, if the Ag President did not approve a contract, and the contract was never presented to FEC, who approved it? What do you call that – UPRIGHT BEHAVIOUR?
            Why did the GMD ignore the Ag. President’s directive to get the input of Kachikwu in the appointments that affected the Corporation’s organogram, only to wait for PMB to resume and have the skewed stuff “approved’? To show you the kind of people there, our President did not ask why the approval had to wait for his resumption.
            It was the 16 years of PDP Disaster that produced the Economic Policy that an APC chieftain exploited to hijack the unbunduled FG shares in major oil companies which he paid for with State Government’s money, only to turn it to himself. It was the 16 Years PDP Disaster that brought the GSM network providers like the MTN which paid an APC government official a bribe of N500m. DISASTER, kwoooo? It was the 16 years PDP “Disaster” that produced an electoral system that accommodated the illegality of a presidential candidate without WASC certificate he claims to possess, to contest and win. DISASTER, kwooo? Should I go further….

          • Powerlessconscious

            Nnpc case was NOT STEALING. Signing a contract by the president is not an offence nor stealing. Biafraud conspiracy theory called it it stealing. Kachikwu only talked about due process. Dieazie looting, fayose et all under pdp is more than foreign reserve of many African countries. Couple with different criminal gangs created by pdp govt from arm robbery to hire killer to cultism to ritualist to militants to bokoharam to IPOB and above all BRIBERY and MASSIVE LOOTED and UNSUATAINABLE system of govt that enrich China and Dubai with our foreign currency through importation and buying of properties by pilitical thieves. Chibok girls case was a disappointment.
            That is I meant by “PDP 16YEARS WAS A DISASTER”
            Sorry that I have to lecture. Because I could see you are proving stubborn. I have not mentioned alamesigja, immigration job scam and so. Pdp was a disaster.

          • Frank Bassey

            “Signing a contract by the president is not an offence nor stealing”.
            When and Where did the President sign the contract? Please answer. Religious Thieves. Diezani has left office and is being persecuted. Why was Babachir Lawal not persecuted? Did he not steal? Did Maina and those that reinstated him not steal? Why are you fixated with Diezani whose case is a public knowledge? What would you tell us, that President Muhammadu Buhari was aware of the reinstatement of Maina. This will linger after him; generations unborn will hear it. NEMESIS will not fail to be at work. That someone was illegally paid salary arrears of over N20 million Naira for job he did not perform; today he has gone under, and you are here talking about Diezani. Allah’s fire will descend on all of you. PRETENTIOUS GREEDY FOWLS.

          • Powerlessconscious

            Let me repeat this in your hearing.

            Then you are all THIEVES. If by-passing due process to sign a contract is not stealing, you must be destined to monkeypox attack because you are all SILENT THIEVES.
            Who authorized Maina’s reinstatement? Who Paid him over N20m salary arrears? Where did Buratai’s two wives get the money to buy houses in Dubai? PARAWOS, OLES, NDOSHIS

          • Powerlessconscious

            Which money did we steal? President buhari is the minister of petroleum. Have you forgotten? How will say the minister of petroleum does does not have right to sign a contract. ILITERATE.
            Mind you, the contract signed does not involve exchange of money as it will be funded by the private companies. Maybe govt will pay part later in future.
            So nobody has released money to anybody.
            That is why I said kachikwu only complained of due process.
            Guy, overall assessment about you, you need to go back to your psychiatric hospital.
            PDP EDUCATION is a SIN.

          • Frank Bassey

            Monumental Foolishness. Minister of Petroleum signs contract on Sick Bed in London? When you sign a contract, is it to exchange your father’s scrotum? See your spelling and tell me who is “ILITERATE”. When a country is ruled by holders of NEPA-BILL Certificate, arrogance becomes your second nature.

          • Powerlessconscious

            I knew you will tell me about my spelling. ILLITERATE. It is biafraud thing. I intentionally left it uncorrected.
            Was the president UNCONSCIOUS on the sick? Though you guys wished him death but came back STRONGER.
            You mentioned my father. Now I know your MADNESS know no bound.
            You must definitely go back to your psychiatric hospital. Otherwise you may continue to disgrace your family.
            When a human has gone so deep in PDP education, I do not expect your brain not to MALFUNCTION.
            Whether you are happhy or sad, I will repeat it to STUBBORN BRAIN, buhari is the minister of petroleum and has every right to sign oil related contract as far as he is alive and conscious.
            The Contract signed did not involve release of money from govt. $26Billion is going to be funded by private companies. Maybe govt will support in the future. Now you commit suicide. God bless baba.

          • Frank Bassey

            Hahaha! Arewa-anus!
            Where is Maina? At least you can spell that easily.

          • Powerlessconscious

            Biafraud monkey. Maina is in sambisa forest. Go there and see him.
            The advise I can give to you is to abandon your selfish interest over the national interest. No party nor any govt is perfect but one progressive apc while one is retrogressive pdp (their antincident).
            Only the progressive one can prepare the future for your children. Nigeria should not be rule like MAMA PUT CANTEEN again as was in the days of pdp. Too much thuggery all over the country. NURTW because recruitment agency of thuggery, arm robber, hire killers, and different criminal activities. All the academic environment became den of cultism. Neglect of infrastructures built by military govt. Growth of drug dealers, ritualist, bribery and corruption at all levels, poverty, insecurity, MASSIVE LOOTINGS, chibok girls, bokoharam, militant in SS, Otedola, police pension funds, immigration job scam etc. All created by pdp.

          • Frank Bassey

            Arewa-Anus, are you aware President Buhari knows about Maina? CHRONIC THIEVES; BLOOD-THIRSTY MARAUDERS, LAZY PARASITES.
            RESTRUCTURING IS A MUST.

          • Powerlessconscious

            Don’t worry. Just continue to bark. One day God will heal you.

            Mind you, it is only in your dream pdp will come back to power. No more going back.

            Biafraud can go to Lagos lagoon, form their country and invite pdp to come and rule over them.

            The president has sacked maina. Case closed.

          • Frank Bassey

            Arewa-anus, Meanwhile, can you comment on this; it is about PDP and Jonathan:

            Dino Melaye accuses Fashola’s power ministry of squandering $385 million
            Premium Times, November 2, 2017
            The senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye of the All Progressives Congress, on Thursday called the attention of the Senate to alleged “monumental fraud” in the Ministry of Power, Work and Housing headed by Babatunde Fashola.
            “Mr. President, this money was stolen in installments. As I speak to you, sometimes last year again, the Ministry of Power came up with a term they call fast power
            “The Ministry has spent so far $35 million on the Afam fast power project that has no appropriation or feasibility studies.
            “These, among many other monumental frauds, are taking place. We need the Senate to investigate this.”

          • Powerlessconscious

            So where was your pdp representative in senate to take up the case if it was true?
            I am not surprised, wasted education from nnewi can make biafraud monkey to malfunction. They will tell you to go to school but na run away cownu you will been following around like slave.
            Pdpigs your representative are very much in Senate or you don’t know them again? They can investigate any minister fraud.

            Like I said, continue to bark, one day God will heal you.

          • Frank Bassey

            Arewa-anus, Product of Remedial and School of Basic Studies, you must be a fortunate Almajari. You people will soon fly out to London because NEMESIS has not finished its business. Cow Dung!

          • Powerlessconscious

            In July 2013, the federal Government raised $1 billion from Eurobond issue. From the proceeds, $350 million was given to IBEX in 2014.

            Who was minister of power from 2013-2014? Biafraud monkey?

            Currently,
            The Ministry has spent so far $35 million on the Afam fast power project that has no appropriation or feasibility studies. How and when was this money appropriated, we need to find out. Out of this money, $29 million was purportedly paid to General Electric for turbines while $6 million was paid to others.

            Dino should provide evidence.

          • Frank Bassey

            Arewa-Anus, always passing the bucks. I had thought you would debate on the issue and counter Dino Meleye’s position with your own FACTS. Why are you running away from the FACTS as presented by the Distinguished Senator? Arewa-Anus, never sees anything wrong in their eyes, even when they are murdering innocent citizens. If $300m was given to IBEX in 2014, where is the balance? Is that the crux of the argument? Is that why an incompetent Minister of Power, under a corrupt and incompetent leadership would squander such amount only to tax Nigerians for serving them darkness? Why do you always display incapacity for staying on an issue and make logical debate? Please produce your own facts, to counter Dino’s, that is how intelligent people reason.

            Meanwhile read these excerpts from Punch Editorial of November 2, 2017. It is not about girl marriage, so I will not be surprised you may not “waste” your time on it:

            CORRUPTION: HOW BUHARI IS LOSING THE WAR
            Punch Editorial of November 2, 2017
            President Muhammadu Buhari’s overhyped anti-corruption crusade has descended into chaos.
            On Tuesday, his integrity suffered a grave blow when the Head of Service, Winifred Oyo-Ita, disclosed via a memo that she verbally cautioned him about the dire implications of Abdulrasheed Maina’s illegal reinstatement. In addition to a frightening number of Buhari’s men already tainted by scandals, the fresh revelations from the HoS painted a Presidency entombed in a sea of mud.
            Now, Buhari’s integrity is under siege, his zero tolerance policy on corruption questioned. He has demonstrated lack of
            political will to bring the tainted members of his inner circle to book or make an example of them. His penchant for making appointments that are lopsided and preponderantly from a section of the country is undermining the legitimacy of his government.
            He should transform himself to a truly national leader and become a president for all Nigerians. The President must, as he promised on inauguration day, “belong to nobody” and truly “belong to
            everybody.” He should stop alienating large sections of the polity through lopsided appointments. We repeat our earlier stance that corruption is not exclusive to financial malfeasance: sectionalism, nepotism and selective justice are definitive acts of corruption. He cannot effectively fightfinancial corruption against opponents when he continues to entrench an unprecedented level of sectionalism and nepotism.

          • Frank Bassey

            Millipede. There are busy and serious persons on this platform. Let’s not divert their attention from what is core and needful. Let’s concentrate on the argument for now.
            To help us, present a contrary argument from what the Distinguished Senator has said. Your name suggests double tragedy: A man with feeble consciousness deserves an apartment in the cemetery.
            Henceforth, I will only respond to your comment that hings on the argument. I am too busy to converse with nincompoops and unrepentant homosexuals.

    When serious people are talking PDP should just shut their trap for goodness sake. None of them have any moral authority to be pointing accusing fingers against the President under any guise. These are the same people that brought the nation on her knees from their reckless looting and money laundering. How can this people forget so fast? Assuming the president was slow in acting against Babachir and Oke at least he probed them under President Jonathan who said looting is not stealing. The clowns should just go away and let sober and serious people talk for a change.

    President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday night said he was aware of the investigation of two sacked officials by anti-corruption agencies, saying the investigation should continue.

    Mr. Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, in a statement said “the position of the President therefore is that investigation agencies which have already commenced the investigation of the two officers removed from office will go on with their work of investigation without any interference or hindrance.”

    Mr. Shehu added that the president “who is fully conversant with the provisions of the constitution will not stop the investigation of anyone because he has no such power under our laws. This is a decision of the Supreme Court.”

    While the sack was long overdue, I dont think PDP has the moral right to talk like this. They should bury their heads in shame for what they presided over for years. Mindless looting was happening under PDP and they did nothing but at least something is being done corruption. Babichir case of 200m was a normal way of life during PDP; infact small officers would have been able to execute such a deal not to talk of SGF.
    The fight on corruption is not perfect but at least ‘stealing in government is corruption’
