We're ready to probe Obasanjo - EFCC

I was surprised and somewhat shocked when I saw this headline in the punch newspapers of today. Obasanjo to be probed by the EFCC? Now that's a kind of story I've not heard of in a long long time. Ex-presidents in Nigeria have always been untouchable, basking away in some remote place with enough wealth to last them for several lifetimes. Well, within the next few weeks I'll like to see the answers to the following questions.

1. Will he actually be probed?
2. If yes, will the EFCC follow due process in the probe?
3. If yes, will the EFCC "find" any evidence to prosecute him?
4. If yes, will he actually be prosecuted?

I suspect that the answer to the first question will be "Yes", and answers to the next three will be "No". Anyway, let's see how it goes. EFCC, over to you.

I dont think EFCC will do anything against OBJ. Its his watchdog, will the servant turn against the master now?

Honestly, am not interested in this EFCC probe because it will definitely come to nothing. I think they should look for someone else and stop deceiving themselves (we are not deceived)....True talk

Sweet heart,

It is only in naija that Big shit do happen and we can't do anything about it.

For the sake of argument, I believe that it highlights that the certain authorities want to be taken seriously and all that. However, will there be any real results? Probably not...Ironically, I'm reminded of Fela's 'Shakara' track....

For the love of me said...

He isnt going to be probed, but that isnt even my prob, the fact that these leaders can walk about freely, receiving awards and honorary degrees is what pains me more. How then do they know they did us evil if we are busy patting them on the back?

Answers to your questions:
1. Will he actually be probed? - I doubt it!

2. If yes, will the EFCC follow due process in the probe? - Is this a new lingua in Naija politics...abegii, due process 4 whia?

3. If yes, will the EFCC "find" any evidence to prosecute him? - evidence abound aplenty; Transcorp, OBJ privately owned library, OBJ's indictment on the gross mismanagement of the PDTF funds, the source of the funding for Bells University of Technology and Temperance Farm at Ota, the issuance and diversion of public funds for the prosecution of his third term agenda and the illegal sale or privatization of public infrastructures like NITEL, NNPC, etc, etc...to cronies and trumped-up companies!

4. If yes, will he actually be prosecuted? - yes, maybe not today but someday, they will all pay for their injustice to our beloved country Nigeria!

@pamela, I've seen your tag o.Hmmm ... ok I'll respond in a little while. Need to put on my thinking cap
@laspapi, exactly! Will the EFCC bite the hand that fed it? I don't think so.
@anonymous, lol, I guess we're used to these things and the respective outcomes.
@jummy, abi o. Na so them dey always make all the noise. Make we see wetin go happen.

Tayo said...

@darkelcee, I strongly agree with you. Might be a gimmick to paint baba white and make him a hero.
@akin, mr pix gremlin. I doubt if there'll be any real results .. except painting someone a hero.
@nigeria politricks, @ your no 3, na true, enough evidence. However, EFCC fit find a plausible excuse for all those things. No be our country? @ your no 4, I say yes too. All offenders won't go scot free for all they've done to our country and it's people.

So, when does this 'probe' commence?
