EFFC’s Inelegant Drama over Anambra Governor

  1. Nigerians had been dismayed that the Financial and Monetary Crimes Fee (EFCC) went a brand new low on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, when it sponsored media studies claiming that it has positioned Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State on its watch record. The EFCC offered no particulars of how Governor Obiano has been positioned on its watch record, however made a reference to a letter it purportedly wrote on November 15, 2021, to the Comptroller Common of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) asking it to tell the anti-graft company anytime the governor is travelling in another country.

 

  1. The whole lot that may be mistaken with politically motivated statements like this one is clearly mistaken with this assertion. The EFCC is aware of full properly that it’s appearing inelegantly on this occasion, and so has tried as a lot as doable to not make an official public assertion on the alleged inserting of Chief Obiano on the watch record. It furtively gave a bit of the media the information report it wrote based mostly on ostensibly its letter to the NIS on November 15.

 

  1. Governor Obiano is in another country at present. And he travelled via one of many nation’s worldwide airports. He didn’t disguise himself, however moderately left the nation together with his id totally disclosed on the crucial immigration level.

 

  1. The EFCC sounded extra inelegant when it claimed within the sponsored press report that it acquired intelligence studies that the governor plans to “flee” from Nigeria as soon as he palms over energy subsequent March 17 to the newly elected Anambra State governor, Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo. Chief Obiano has by no means left any individuals unsure that he’ll relocate to his base in the USA as soon as he finishes his tenure. As early as Wednesday, March 4, 2020, he introduced his determination to a gathering of the Anambra State Council of Elders, comprising such personages because the erstwhile Secretary Common of the Commonwealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku; the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Alfred Achebe who can also be the chairman of each the Anambra State Council of Conventional Rulers and the Southeast Council of Conventional Rulers; a former Anambra State governor, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife; an ex-Minister of Girls Affairs, Iyom Josephine Anenih, mni; the founding Director Common of the Nationwide Orientation Company (NOA), Professor Elochukwu Amucheazi; the Archbishop Emeritus of the Anglican Church in Anambra State, The Most Reverend Dr Maxwell Anikwenwa; and the Catholic Bishop of the Awka Diocese, Rev Dr Paulinus Ezeokafor.

 

  1. Governor Obiano has a complete 4 months to stay in workplace because the Anambra State chief government. No one in Nigeria can circumscribe his constitutionally conferred immunity which shields him from each legal and civil prosecution. The EFCC went too far to announce in November that it’s observing him. We aren’t conscious of any state governor who had as much as 4 months to be in workplace and the EFCC went on to sponsor media studies that he was being investigated.

 

  1. It’s, certainly unusual that the EFCC is making a present that it’s investigating a excessive public officer. Anti-corruption companies, like intelligence providers, conduct their investigations discreetly, and never on pages of newspapers. Media trial has by no means benefitted the EFCC.

 

  1. The entire nation is aware of these behind all the current histrionics about Obiano. They’re those that didn’t need the November 6 election to carry. They’re these in excessive locations who unsuccessfully canvassed for emergency rule in Anambra supposedly on safety grounds. They’re those that masterminded the Birnin Kudu Excessive Courtroom charade in Jigawa State over the APGA management and, extra importantly, the genuine APGA candidate within the November gubernatorial election in Anambra State. They’re these accountable for the sacrilege of a customary courtroom in Abuja issuing legal summons to Professor Soludo, a former Central Financial institution of Nigeria governor. These individuals are nonetheless combating the gubernatorial battle on behalf of their badly defeated buddies and political associates within the Anambra vote. They’ll fail badly, as they’ve finished within the latest previous.

 

  1. The EFCC shouldn’t enable itself for use by politicians who’re mere birds of passage. Its ongoing Anambra drama is in unhealthy style. It didn’t serve Governor Obiano any discover. Nor did it invite him to reply questions on his service file. It simply went to the press. But, the governor is keen to reply any questions on his years in workplace. In any case, he has acquired a prestigious award from the United Nations Improvement Programme for social service integrity.

 

God bless Anambra State, the Gentle of the Nation.
