I think he means touts and criminals in the mould of Ibori, Odilli, OBJ, IBB, Adedibu, Igbinidion, etc and surprise surpprise, they are all from PDP. I won't call them untouchables simply because it makes me feel like i am glorifying these common tout, motor park boys and agberos in some way. But if we really think about it the much lauded fight on corruption in retrospect has turned out to be a very distorted shadow of the revolution people were claiming it to be. Think about it, the prison system in Nigeria is full of a lot of people who have not even been convicted or found guilty of any wrong doing simply rotting away. Now a quick question, and think hard, how many people "arrested" by the EFCC are in jail today? Justice will not be served until this problem is addressed especially when you look at it from this perspective: these people were not only guilty of stealing from their people and practising daylight thuggery, murder, armed robbery, you name it, but they also robbed Nigerians of 8 years of progress. In those 8 years, people whose only dream was to see the nation grow and progress instead saw the opposite, they stole hope, aspirations and the trust of the citizenry. In those 8 years, offices which were meant to be positions at which the highest patriotism is meant to be displayed in the sense of service to one's country, were instead occupied by the most unpatriotic of Nigerians. Simply put, it is painful. Why do people wonder at the alarming rise in armed robbery and chaos when people in power have shown that crime pays? Everything else seems like a distraction and detraction from the main event until these wrongs are addressed.
