There is a division in the Nigerian polity. On one end of the division are the corruption-friendly proponents, on the other are the anti-corruptionists. The corruption-friendly proponents are those men whose generally political tendency amounts
to protecting Nigeria’s corruption culture. The corruption-friendly men generally have a direct or indirect benefit from the Nigerian usurp. They hope to stir the polity in a direction that maintains a status quo on Nigerian corruption culture. A culture that breeds the chain reaction of election rigging, which in turn leads to protecting thieves that money-bagged the election, and eventually to more election rigging. The circle is decadence.
In our Nigeria today, the corruption chain reaction now appears to have hijacked the total hierarchy of power. It is complete. They include the President, his Attorney General, his Chief of Police, and the collusion by these three authority figures to displace Nigeria’s only effective crime fighting institution; the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission of Nigeria. The reason for a Head of State, Head Lawyer for the Government, and a leading Police authority wanting the EFCC out of the way is simple; the Nigerian Presidency won his election with a helping hand from bandits, and in return, the bandits must enjoy impunity. Impunity so bold, that it makes a laughing stock out of law and order. Impunity that increases the decadence, and every decade the Nigerians beg the world for debt forgiveness.
The Nigerian President has an obligation first to the bandits that won his election, second to Nigerians. Citizen welfare is incidental, the political office buyers come first. Economic and Financial Crime policy reversal has become a necessity. He must appease bandits, and in so doing, he will stir his Attorney General, and his Chief of Police into unscrupulous tendencies. This tendency includes; removing Nuru Ribadu. It includes, changing direction on an effective Economic and Financial Crimes regime. The Government must in so many ways, become extortion-friendly. Nigerian Law and Order must be adjusted to fit the order of kleptomania!
In any case, Nuru Ridadu must not die. He must not disappear in the middle of the night, or be killed by an assassin’s bullet. He must not have sudden Cardiac Arrest.
If he does, the Nigerian President killed him! Yar’Adua killed him!
