As falls of high profile corrupt Nigerians continues, the word is out, to the effect that the war on corruption is a full-blown and full-scale war! And that Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, chairperson of Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the EFCC, has gone global with the battle to rid Nigeria of this evil and debilitating scourge.
Nigeria has declared an onslaught on corruption and those who engage in it; Mallam Ribadu is the ultimate weapon in this fight by Nigeria, against corrupt practices and corrupt enrichments, he is said to be a no-nonsense fighter, and Nigeria’s WMD or Weapons of Mass Destruction in our fight against corruption and corruption’s unrepentant adherents.
Mallam Ribadu is said to be President Obasanjo’s Field Marshall in the war against corruption and it has been learnt that the Mallam deploys his EFCC operatives like precision bombers and cluster bombs, with which he shocks and awes corrupt persons, including the erstwhile Inspector General of Police Mr. Tafa Balogun, the national identity card scandal individuals and more recently, the former minister of Education, Mr. Fabian Osuji including some members of the national assembly.
Those familiar with the Mallam’s zeal and focus in the anti corruption battle, say that he is singularly minded in his zeal to eliminate corruption from Nigeria and singly focused with utmost commitment and dedication to the eradication of corruption in Nigeria, as he conducts the war as if a horse, with blinders on. Direct attacks and by proxies he fights on.
Appropriately, the word is out and spreading fast, that Mallam Riubadu is like a hungry/angry bulldog of the Alsatian breed, he barks and bites. The Mallam is said to be very ferocious. Now, beware of this anti corruption bulldog! Anyone with corrupt tendency must now watch their backs and look frequently overt their shoulders as they will have to sooner answer to this Mallam, the WMD on corruption that have been unleashed in pursuit of anyone engaged in bribery or corrupt activities in Nigeria.
Informed sources confirmed to me that the Mallam seeks corrupt persons, isolate them and strangle them prosecutorial manner, in the same manner in which good soldiers hunt enemy combatants in the battle fronts, seek the enemy, isolate the enemy and kill it! He seeks isolates and kills corruption.
This quiet and unassuming anti corruption hero, is a potent weapon deployed to fight vices in Nigeria, he is the moral equivalent of Weapons of Mass Destruction, he is said to have vowed to fight corruption to the last man, as he equally has promised to take the corruption crusade to every sector of Nigeria ‘s economic and political life, to extinguish every snippets of the plague.
Usually reliable sources described Mallam Ribadu’s resolve as inviolate and sacrosanct, he is said to possess sharp reflexes and a heightened and elevated sense of duty, responsibility and patriotism. He is said to smell improprieties from a million miles away, as he is said to go into righteous expression of abhorrence for corrupt people. As anti corruption WMD, he is said to bask and revel in his hot-pursuits of the likes of Governor Joshua Chibi Dariye, Mr. Tafa Balogun and now, Mr. Osuji.
The EFCC chairperson is said to be eagle-eyed with a knack for ferreting out precise information and evidence from corrupt persons regarding their corrupt enrichments, his keen eyes are quick to spot the holes in the corrupt evil-doers’ charades to avoid punishments. Mallam Nuhu “WMD” Ribadu is also said to be a patient detective who always get the crooks where he wants them; Just as it is said in the USA, he is a good law enforcement officer, who always “gets his man” the crooks, that is.
How can Nigerians worldwide help the EFCC fight corruption? Provide evidence of corruption, provide valuable information that will enable prosecution of corrupt persons, whomever they are or may be, whatever their region, religion or ethnicity. Help Mallam Nuhu Ribadu and his wonderful staff/employees at EFCC to wallop corruption and eradicate it from Nigeria’s landscape! Help Generalissimo Nuhu Ribadu kill corruption!
Nigerian should applaud, jubilate and celebrate the courageous crusade by our own weapons of mass destruction on corruption, fighting the war on corruption gallantly!
Bravo Mallam Ribadu!
