In a previous post, I mentioned how former EFCC boss Nuhu Ribadu’s removal was a carefully orchestrated attempt to hamper the fight on corruption and to protect corrupt Governors. (see: https://maxsiollun.wordpress.com/2008/01/14/ribadus-removal-i-smell-a-rat/)Well, lo and behold, only a few weeks after Ribadu’s posting to a course at the National Institutue of Policy and Strategic Studies, the charges against former Plateau State Governor Joshua Dariye have been dropped (the same Dariye that was arrested by police in London for money laundering). Former Delta State Governor James Ibori has been granted bail, and bail conditions have been set for former Edo State Governor Lucky Igbinedon. Once again, anti-corruption efforts in Nigeria are being derailed.
Incidentally, here is a photo of Ribadu at his NIPSS course.
