EFCC Instrument Of Personal Vendetta

Posted: Jun 19, 2016 at 6:15 am   /   by   /   comments (1)

Muyiwa Abdulkareem, a political scientist, believes that there is everything morally wrong for the continued undue harassment of perceived political opponents by the Muhammadu Buhari-led government using the EFCC under the guise of fighting corruption.

He stresses: “What the Federal Government is doing, they may not know, is destroying the image of Nigeria and that of President Buhari because many people will see him as somebody who is on a revenge mission to strangulate opponents for a one-party country and this is not good enough for us as the most populous black nation and acclaimed giant of Africa.

Abdulkareem adds: “It is morally wrong for the Federal Government’s agency to lay siege to some prominent members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); and ransacking the house of Musliu Obanikoro and keeping Femi Fani-Kayode in detention.

“With what is happening, I am tempted to believe what many Nigerians are saying that it is a sin in Fulani culture to forgive and that Buhari is on revenge mission against political opponents. I am beginning to see elements of truth in the insinuation”

Sarah Nmadu, a civil servant, states that the raid by EFCC of the house of Obanikoro and continued detention of Fani-Kayode shows that the anti-graft war of the President Muhammadu Buhari government is being pursued to silence the opposition voices.

“If you look at virtually all the arrests and detention, they are all members of one political party. Does it mean that it is only the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members that are today found to be ‘corrupt’ or that they have done what no other persons in Nigeria have done in the past?

“Corruption is still very much in the present administration. Why are the corrupt people in this government not arrested and detained as well? To me, what is happening is a sort of personal vendetta against some perceived political opponents.”
