RIBADU IS A RIP-OFF
Policeman Alhaji Nuhu Ribadu was recruited by President Olusegun Obasanjo as a hound and attack dog, to silence his political adversaries and he delivered. He headed the newly created EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) which really meant “Effectively Fueling Corrupt Cabal.”.
Recovered money were re-looted by Politicians. Politicians sympathetic to the Obasanjo style of mismanagement were never investigated. Adversaries who decamped to the ruling PDP were spared. The victims of the EFCC were those politicians who disagreed or challenged Overlord Obasanjo.
Ribadu’s sincerity became suspect when he failed to spill the beans on Obasanjo, one of the most corrupt Nigerian leaders. Nigerians expected Saint Ribadu to indict Obasanjo after he vacated the Presidency.
The epitome of Obasanjo’s corruption was the shakedown of Nigerians for 300 billion Naira to build his Presidential, or it his Residential Library, while in office. Apparently, he is enamored with 300 billion Naira. Three hundred billion Naira budgeted for road infrastructure, also disappeared into thin air. His other shakedowns and tit-for-tat financial malfeasance will fill a tome.
It is understandable to spare Obasanjo during his Presidency but what is Alhaji Nuhu Ribadu’s reason for his deafening silence after the end of Obasanjo’s tenure? Could Ribadu have compromised his position by engaging in suspect real estate transactions as alleged by some sources?
To polish his veneer of Mr. integrity, he dumped the PDP for the far more corrupt APC, a party that fights corruption in the media but sleeps with corruption in the bedroom.
Mr. Ribadu has become so corrupt that he fails to see the tacit support of President Muhammadu Buhari for the killing of sleeping Farmers and Christians by Fulani Terrorist Herdsmen.
His description of Buhari as being neutral in the Farmer-Fulani Terrorist Herdsmen dispute is despicable and patronizing to the victims and survivors of the Fulani mayhem.
How does s neutral President pay condolence visits to dead cows but ignore dead humans until two days to the election?
Alhaji Nuhu Ribadu brought his modus operandi to the APC. Ex-Governors Orji Uzor Kalu and Godswill Akpabio under probe for heists running into the trillions of Naira suddenly became model politicians after decamping to the APC, aptly named “Another Platform for Corruption” by Nigerians.
This chameleonic behavior of Ribadu is becoming more and more manifest as he immerses himself deeper and deeper into the murky Nigerian political landscape. Failing to secure the APC gubernatorial nomination for Adamawa, Ribadu may soon decamp to the PDP. And the political merry-go-round continues.
The APC is far more corrupt than the PDP as shown by their financial scandals and massively rigged 2018 Primary Elections.
Africastallestman hopes that Rip-off Ribadu will write a memoir, before he decamps to the afterlife.
