    Who will fight corruption? Lamurde or Jonathan? Rigging is the mother of all corruptions. Whosoever castrated Judiciary to actualize and legitimize his/her rigging can never fight corruption. One offence committed leads to committing another.

    I think this body called ‘efcc’ is a body instituted for some mischievous achievers to accomplish their financial journeys. Nigerian Policeman to fight against corruption is the biggest jokes of the century. Waziri or no Waziri, the corrupt practices is ever increasing. A country who has no political will to prosecute and sanction those who commits political, economic, social, religious and security offences is virtually not prepared to tell themselves the truth. Those unforgettable billions of Dollars and Pounds looted by late Gen, Sani Abacha and other economic enemies, where are the monies? And the figure-head-confused president is busy out there proposing for some demonic proposal to inflict more sufferings in the life of common Nigerians.

    Who is this Tyoakoso, sounding like an alien about his President . I doubt if you are a Nigerian. People should henceforth learn how to call good, good while evil should be seen to be evil. Management decisions goes beyond myopic reasoning. Waziri’s Exit could be ranges of issues. Absence of God is a gateway to all sorts of negative Demeanor including ”corruption”

    Until Nigeria govt put life imprisonment and death penalty to corruption, Nigeria can never be good. Communism is what fit Nigeria and not democracy. China or Japan do not have time to fight corruption because if they catch you, they don’t waste time for execution or life imprisonment. Nigeria people believe so much in bribery that is why they embezzle and give bribe to find their way out and become a chief overnight. A thief holds public office in Nigeria so what do you expect? A thief is highly respected in Nigeria because he thief his people money and become big with big handkerchief.It is only in Nigeria I see a big man sweating hahahaha.
