Why Nigerians MUst Support Buhari, By Yahaya Mohd usman
I am very mad now! Infact I have gone crazy to say the least,
Check this, the allegation of misappropriation of over $20 billion dollars by Diezani would make any one mad.
In a country where over 80% of the populace live below a dollar per day, hospitals cannot afford pain relievers, schools cannot afford chalks, no electricity, no portable drinking water, no fertilizer for farmers, nothing, nothing at all.
The roads are terribly bad, crime is high, mortality rate is high, live expectancy is low, poverty is ravaging.
Yet this woman who should be a role model becomes an icon of criminality in Nigeria. It is very unfortunate.
Only recently a very close friend of hers told me how a whooping one hundred million dollars was “stolen” from her by her house help.
The story still baffles me, this is how it went.
Diezani sought the assistance of a certain friend whose name starts with a “DO…”to assist her get a house help, the friend got the house help for her. One day “Do” came to the house help and ask the house help to get a certain box from diezani’s room, the house got the box and then “Do” left with the box, and later gave the house help $5 million to leave the country. The house help who is so naive went to Dubai and spent the money extravagantly till a red flag was raised over him, on the expiration of his visa he couldn’t renew and he was deported back to Nigeria only to be arrested on arrival.
The house help told the authorities he was not a thief, “Do” was then arrested too.
It was when they got to Diezani to write her statement and the source of the money that she recanted and denied knowledge of any missing money. That was how the sum of $ 100 million was carted away without trace from her.
That amount is just a pittance when compared to the total $ 20 billion that is alleged to be have stolen, that is the picture, it tells the sorry situation Nigeria found herself under the Jonathan presidency. Not just Diezani but a lot of even core change agents where part of the criminal Gang that raped Nigeria, one of such cases is that of Rotimi Ameachi who is been hounded by the Rivers state government for alleged pilferage of over #1 trillion, in Niger state, the case of #2.9 billion Is still fresh and not done with yet, Kano is still under scrutiny with reports of massive looting too! Sule Lamido has just been granted bail, El-Rufa’i still smells from the report of “# 90 billion Naira asset declaration”. The Halliburton $ 182 million bribery scandal is still there with name of several persons who today call themselves progressives, Atiku, Obasanjo, et al. Sambo Dasuki and co are under close watch for the trillions of Naira unaccounted security budget, the over $500 million dollars Boko Haram amnesty deal.
The subsidy crooks are still free and planing to perpetrate new schemes of stealing.
The NIMASA DG’s taking of over 1.2 billion for frivolities when his staff were been owed 4 months salary, which prompted dissolution of all boards by the president. The list I endless and the names are just too much.
It then becomes not surprising when news report surfaced of 33 out of the 36 nominees for ministerial position failed the corruption screening, the looting of Nigeria carried out by people irrespective of tribe, party and or region or religion.
The only person Nigerians seem to have confidence in now is Buhari, and they are absolutely right.
