Again Lagos APC asks National Assembly to reject Obanikoro as Minister

Musiliu Obanikoro

The Lagos chapter of the All Progressives Congress has warned once again that unless Nigeria is a banana republic there is no reason Senator Obanikoro’s name should be considered again for ministerial position, given his deep involvement in Ekitigate election scandal.

In a release in Lagos by its State Publicity Secretary of the party, Joe Igbokwe, the party says Nigeria must not continue to reward persons with questionable and dubious character in a nation where good and quality people are not in short supply.

“Ekitigate scandal is such a weighty and monumental fraud that cannot be swept under carpet as it rocks and undermines the very foundation of our democratic journey.

“Senator Obanikoro and his forty thieves in Ekitigate scandal must be brought to book to serve as deterrent to others. When offenders are not punished the hearts of the people are schemed to continue to do wrong.

“What is the purpose of reappointing Senator Obanikoro who has just lost an election in Lagos as a Minister if not to continue to use the exalted position to plunder our common patrimony at this critical point in the nation’s history.

“Senator Obanikoro must be kicked in the ass and thrown out of the hallowed chamber of the National Assembly for decimating and desecrating our hard-earned democracy.

“With this singular act of representing this very bad and ugly candidate, the President is sending the wrong signals to the world that Nigeria is a nation of anything goes.”

    Embarrassment is Joe Igbokwe’s middle name. When will Joe change his surname to something like Igbosere, Tokunbo or Tinubu. Why should an Igboman who has been in Lagos for these donkey years remain there when obviously he has not found something useful to do? Why can’t Fashola deport this embarrassing Igboman back to the East?

    • Festuso

      Why should Fashola deport Joe Igbokwe? Lagos belongs to everyone who is a resident of Lagos and contributes to safe co-existence of all tribes in Lagos….be you Igbo, Hausa, Itsekiri or what have you. The only proviso is that you must be a useful citizen not a miscreant who comes to beg on the streets of Lagos. Lagos is like London or New York…..a city that is free for all …as long as you obey the laws of the land. That is how to build a united country. Anybody who does not like it can go back to his/her father’s village! Joe Igbokwe can even be appointed a Commissioner or Governor of Lagos State!

      Intelligence isn’t speaking English only. U need to know the law/s that govern the land before u talk rubbish.

  • Maitama Tambari

    David Mark will not do it because there is a Hausa saying which says that “zama da madaukin kanwa shi yake kawo farin gashi” meaning that association with lime stone seller causes white hair. CHANGE ! YES WE CAN.

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    For APC’s info, the only scandal in the last Ekiti election was how a sitting governor was humiliated and annihilated by Fayose because Fayose won in ALL 16 LGs. That useless audio recording is a mere distraction of no consequence. When the day comes for Obanikoro to be confirmed, he will be told to “bow and go”. APC members are free to go and drink poison when that happens.

    • Festuso

      Just like you will be free to go and drink poison when the military takes over because goons like you refuse to allow the practice of democracy in Nigeria. Some of you really belong to the bush where jungle law prevails!

  • Dazmillion

    Koro will be reappointed. We are talking about Jonathan here, the lover of criminals.

  • Spoken word

    If Jonathan has his way he will appoint a convicted armed robber as a minister.

  • Faruk Al-amin

    if this obanikoro gets appointed, i will lost all respect for the presidency and the PDP, A mean wtf is wrong with mr president, obanikoros name should not be even in there in first place

  • Layi

    We are watching what our legislators will do, then deal with them accordingly!
