Change is set to hit the country and there has been cases of several leaders in Nigeria turning a new leaf. Its no news that Nigeria is a very great country with a capacity of greatness. The country is endowed with vast human as well as natural resources. Despite the high revenue generated by this country from oil which is supposed to be a blessing, Nigeria has been hit by the resource course theory. This means the oil factor has been a deficiency to the development of the country. This has encouraged a high rate of corruption and desperation for political power. Several politicians have used political power as a gateway to enrich their pockets.
With the emergence of Muhammadu Buhari as the new leader of the country, there seem to be so much fear in Nigeria among politicians who have massively siphoned public funds. Rumours have it that Buhari is bracing up for a massive clampdown on all corrupt officials in Nigeria.
The petroleum Minister, Diezani Alision Maduekwe was smart enough to get a wind of the grand plan, she is reportedly on the run. She is in the UK with a plan to go on a long term exile. Bode George on the other hand has already hinted us about his imminent exit from Nigeria to avoid a deserved jail term. This is really a big shame on out leaders engaging in executive robbery.
Furthermore, Finance Minister, Okonjo Iweala has also been fingered by the President – Elect for misappropriation of funds and she could be brought to book if found guilty. A reliable source from the APC leadership circle claimed a list of chronic political thieves have been compiled. The plan will be hatched starting from May 29, 2015 when the General assumes power officially. Members of the APC have decided to lead by example in order to prevent public criticisms when the massive prosecution begins. It is simply called ‘leadership by example’.
Nigerians will be shell shocked and the political class thrown into disarray as former president Olusegun Obasanjo prepares to return 200 million dollars to the federal government and promised to release names if those who do not follow his lead and return “what belongs to the Nigerian people” as he put it. An official announcement of this development will be made this week.
You are hearing it from us first. This is a great news to Nigerians. Corruption has deterred the growth and development of this country over a long period of time. A victory over this problematique of the global south will set the country on the right course which is the reason why General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) was massively sought after by voters.
The greatness of Nigeria is indeed close.
