Can Efcc Probe Obasanjo?

I just read in the Punch Newspaper a statement credited to The Head, General Investigations Unit, The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) Mr Umar Sanda,that the agency is ready to probe the Immediate past president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo! This came on the heel of a petition filed by the Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders, led by Mr. Debo Adeniran.

But the question is Can the EFCC really probe Baba?

You continue to stick me with dry wood from time to time and just because of my respect for ladies in general, I continue to ignore your senseless statements.

Please and please do not speak for me.

Your despicable statement is absolutely inaccurate and unnecessary. May be you should be a target for Mckren and his crew.

Have some self respect and behave yourself!

I can repost it if you like to prove its from Mckren, it is obviously despicable because it does not reflect your interest.

FYI: If we start probing past leaders hastily IBB will be in jail before OBJ.

A totall despicable and unintelligent statement; the kind that will come out of MAMAJAMA's mouth.

I still find it extremely difficult to discover that the statement was posted by Mckren.

I guess, it is true to never count people out!

Yeah right and Dariye's confessions on how he shared Plateau State government allocations with OBJ is not evidence.  The only way you get evidence is by looking at what has been presented.  Does EFCC look at what has been presented against OBJ?  Yet it has time to dig up some on Ibori, Kalu, Nnamani and co?

Like BigB1 said,

I agree I benefited from the looters on the state level. Does not stop me from saying what is real.  It is obvious you benefited from those on the federal level.  So let us continue to play the game with this caricature of an EFCC.

@Mckren

This statement of yours also shows which side you belong.

Your intention continues to be clearer and brighter each and everyday.

I guess, it is true that it cost nothing to always settle for nothing!

For your information I can produce a cheque bearing Almonjoy and post online for any sum I like. Atiku had checks for everyone who was against him then. When Osuntokun spoke, he had one for him. When El-Rufai spoke he had one for him. I was literarilly waiting for a check implicating Gani Fawenhinmi in the PTDF saga. That was how shrewd Garba Shehu was.

However this whole issue was investigated by the independent Senate led by Ken Nnamani. The Victor Ndoma Egba report which the Senate upheld after heated delibrations did only caution OBJ for misaapplication of funds (using funds meant for one public project to fund another public project). The Senate gave OBJ a clean bill of health and reccomended appropriate sanctions for Atiku.

So Ribadu will not imprison OBJ to please some public sentiments, their must be evidence. Telling us that his farm has transformed over the years is not evidence, neither does telling us that he was Petroleum minister for 8years evidence.

I really wonder why Ribadu has not gone after Atiku.

Even with all Atiku's checks and testimonials to prove otherwise? I am glad you think Ribadu is smart--but some are smarter than him for rendering him a judicial cripple to the face of the world!

Point of correction Ribadu never said that,

FYI: That evidence available does not suggest OBJ has questions to answer is not an explicit certification that OBJ is not corrupt.

Ribadu is too smart to make the comment you stated above.

i don't see anything stopping the efcc from probing obj, fyi we are in the rule of law era. besides they've committed to the CACL petition, so let's follow that up and see what comes out of it. if he's found wanting i don't see anything stopping him from doing some time in the bighouse, afterall he's been there before, done it and wouldn't mind paying his old pals a visit. maybe then all hell will let loose on the accomplices and associates - the ibbs and the atikus of this world will start running for there lives.

Have you noticed that the same ATIKU they wanted to nail badly few months ago (while he was still the VP and still protected), is now walking around the country freely.

The question is: Atiku is no longer the VP, how come he's still walking around freely after being painted as a criminal and vigorously harassed by EFCC just few months ago?

Was the EFCC working for Nigeria or OBJ?

Ridadu has already told us that OBJ is not corrupt so what else are we expecting from him.

OBJ can be probed, but the question is by who? If by EFCC then defintely not Ribadu as chiarman.

Great Almond Joy, but i still believe that the intention itself is noteworthy! I agree with you that the probe might encounter some hitches but i know that it wont be unending!!! Buildings and people could burn, but the truth will always prevail. The fact that someone with a name, not a nameless person particularly with EFCC saying this. Now it is on record, Now the truth is begging to burst loose!

For me, i am seeing a frankestein monster here-What you create now coming to haunt you!!! It is possible, u dont think so?

Even if EFCC does, the matter will drag on till "justice" is denied and the man has long departed this world. Also more government buildings will be burned to conceal evidence.
