drugs Peddler Turned Politician: Should I Expose Him?

I had a neighborhood friendship with someone running for a political position in 2007, trouble is, he was a big time drug dealer in the 80s-90s. Heard he changed since then, but should his past be known to the electorate in-order to ascertain what type of person he was/is, or should i just keep quite. Nigeria needs a change.

Seun, ratting out someone in America over drugs comes with dire consequences. People get killed over it, not kidding at all, despite assurances of protection from the police and their relocation to a different city. That is why sometimes in tough neighborhoods like the hood, drug dealers sometimes get a free pass from their neighbors, because of the slang, "snitches get stitches."

Hey! If the guy has changed and has shown signs of that change, I think you should just let him be. Remember the injuction, "he who is without sin should cast the first stone."

Kitaun you reply suggests that you are already aware of which particular Nigerian state governors are in the throes of habitual cocaine usage, but that you feel such a habit is no big deal provided the governors are "doing a good job".

Remember that we are not talking about a  government official indulging in an occasional puff of a marijuana joint, as Bill Clinton famously did.  We are talking about cocaine, a drug that can cause spontaneous heart stoppage and death from a single dosage, and a drug which is known to render users prone to extreme paranoia and violent psychotic episodes of the type visited by armed robbers on their victims.  Kitaun please run this by me again.  Are you claiming contentment with the knowlege that a pair of heavy coke users are currently heading up entire state governments in Nigeria today ?

If the stories of rampant cocaine usage are true, the behavior and/or physical and mental health of the the alleged snorting excellencies will inevitably one day prove beyond doubt what is widely suspected.

Anyone with access to video archives of the relevant Nigerian state governor's recent televised speeches could view them with this story in mind, looking out for those repetitive nervous tics that sometimes may identify a "snowman".

I recently heard an even more astonishing story about two of Nigeria's governors from the south-west of the country.  Reports from several independent sources claim that both of these governors are HEAVY cocaine users, and that they both display tell-tale symptoms of coke addiction whenever they give televised speeches - frequently wiping their running noses, indicative of long-term heavy powder sniffing habits, and displaying unnaturally euphoric demeanors at inappropriate times such as the occasion when one of the governors broke out into a giggle-fit while touring the site of a collapsed building in which there were a number of fatalities.

The possibility of a serving Nigerian governor having made his money in drugs or 419 fraud would surprise few observers of Nigerian politics, but these reports of two state governors being out-of-control coke-fiends are simply mind-boggling.  Anyone aware of the physiological and mental damage wreaked by cocaine, not to mention the high probability of cardiac arrest or serious strokes attendant with cocaine usage, ought to be gravely concerned about the fate of citizens under any government institution headed by a coke snorter.    Even by Nigerian standards this story is a nuclear bomb-shell if true.

Dr Chic I must disagree with you respectfully on Seun, if there is one person I detest in this forum its Seun the admin who seek the privileged bestow on him as the administrator and the own of the site to suspend peoples account when he doesn’t agree with their opinion, I can list 5 peoples that have been humiliated by this action of seun, this is one of the problem in Nigeria as at now, vindictive and suppression. This guy is an opportunist and my friend and I are in the process of setting up a site similar to this that will be free for all and freedom of speech. No more comment. Everyone should be allow to speak their mind respectfully, that is my take.

Do we have a country? I bet no and we have a carton. Expose him and he still wins and your life will be in danger. Everybody is a criminal either active or inactive. The latter waiting for his opportunity. We're being Molested here every day and you know what, whenever there is a corruption scandal I feel many already dead but walking. So why this din about the dead generals? Folks that would have been into politics and suffocate us. Away with them men! We are doomed and am just been open and realistic. We've pocketicians and we are dummy electorates!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If there is one person i respect on this forum, its you Seun.

Its obvious you have a mind and humour!

Yes, its definately different, being an addict and selling drugs.

Its takes two different personaliy types, especially when a

person sells only and does not use.

Please, please, expose the guy. We do not need characters

like that making decisions for us. Agreed old things have passed

away, but let voters decide to forgive him. We must have all the

information to make the right decision.

report that guy. get efcc's mail address on www.efccnigeria.org

i dont care about the drug thing, people can take whatever they like, but being an ex dealer just tells us the kind of person he'll be when he gets to office. remember its little bits like this from u and me that'll make nigeria a better place.

u can do it all anonymously provided u sound convincing enough and not wanting to settle a personal score with the man. efcc is really interested in anything that has to do with 2007. so we are told.

U r one good nigerian and i'm proud of u.

He was not an addict, he was a dealer. He was selling hard drugs to addicts.

You definitely have something in mind, if you wanna expose him go ahead and do that but try to weigh the consequences.

Remember, everyone makes mistakes. He used to be an addict but he's no more into drugs

DO YOU WANT TO JUDGE HIM BY HIS PAST?

I would personally say you should forget about it

It's a common trend now to see many Nigerians who had no tangible jobs or interest abroad, returning home with some cooked resumes, name them Fayose, Serubawon, Obanikoro, Alayema, etc. The common trend is getting a KATRINA degree (from some mushrooms schools in LA).

We should learn to be bold , i love Ribadu (EFFC) and his boldness, courage and determination to clear corruption and corrupt people out of our system.

Therefore , my brother , be bold take it as your resposibility to improve this our country called Nigeria, its a step of boldness and a justification of your conscience. remember anyone that knows a thief and refuses to either dislclose him or change him for good is a collaborator and regrded as a thief also. be wise, take that bold step today, before its too late. its up to u.

Contribute your quota to the war on corruption by exposing the guy. However in doing so, you must be aware that exposing him does not guarantee prosecution. no matter how sufficient your proof is. If he belongs to the right PDP camp, EFCC will do nothing!!!

of course you should expose the drugs peddler because I believe he will do more harm than good if allowed to continue his career but watch out. You can only whisper to Ribadu and pretend for the sake of your own life

Not only expose him, charge him for racketeering. silly fools. EFCC should open a free telephone number for anonymous tip off like this. It will then send investgator to go and to their job.

You do not really need to give your name or anything. They do it here in UK. That is how they catch criminals

If you have this information and you refuse to release it to the appropriate authorities (EFCC?), you are, in my books, as responsible for the crime as the criminal.

This is the shameful attitude that our parents embraced in past, that got us to this level of decadence that we are in, If we as Nigerians and particularly Young people do not demand transparency from our leaders it will only exist in our wish thinking, for all i care you can expose him, if you are sure you have credible evidence against him and if you want someone to help you out, just forward it to me, Na one thing must kill man jare!

Naija will be great again.
