Ribadu: How Gani Fawehinmi Mentored Me by dewale2k: 10:09am On Aug 18, 2013
Meeting late fiery human rights activists, Gani Fawehinmi was a morale booster for the former presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Nuhu Ribadu, he admitted yesterday adding that Mr. Fawehinmi’s mentorship helped him in shaping his ideological stance.

Mr. Ribadu, who spoke at a mentoring programme organised by the Group of Patriotic Corpers (GPC) and #AdoptATweep in Abuja at the weekend, said he meet the reputable lawyer while serving as a pupil lawyer at the military Special Investigative Panel during the short-lived  Buhari/Idiagbon regime.

Late Mr. Fawehinmi, according to Mr. Ribadu, provided him with critical advices and mentorship lessons that continue to serve as his guiding lights to this day.

He said it was from Mr. Fawehinmi that he renewed his resolve to continue to fight the cause of the poor and subsequently join the Nigerian Police Force.

He therefore underscored the importance of mentoring young ones which, he said, could surpassed what one can learn from formal school.

“A Chinese saying has it that discussing with an experienced person is worth more than 10 years of education. It is therefore good to always relay one’s experience to the younger ones,” Mr. Ribadu said.

The former EFCC chairman admonished the youth to make right choices at early stage of their career by choosing to live a humble and exemplary life than a life of material accumulation which, he said, does not guarantee eternal happiness if acquired through corrupt means.

He also asked youths not to lose hope of rebuilding the country but said they required strong will and incorruptible life to salvage the nation, adding that the resolve has to be made at an early age.

” My success at the EFCC, especially in resisting all tempting offers and calls to bend the rules was a direct result of my bow from when I was like you that I will never be corrupt.

“I resented corruption not by lips of mouth but by personal conduct. I refused to be bribed or compromised throughout my public service career. Yet, I am ever happy with myself. I have no regrets that I don’t have mansions all over the world or own a private jet. I derive happiness  from contentment and the feeling that what I possess are things I genuinely earn.  You can make similar resolve today,” he said.



Late Lagos Lawyer and fiery human rights activist, Gani Fawehinmi

Mr. Ribadu charged the youths to conduct an audit of their abilities before making career choices, which is a life time decision.

“Therefore, if you really wish to be a home-builder, one possessed by a desire to change our realities, then you have to conduct a self-assessment. Look into your strengths and weaknesses and then take decision on whether to follow the left or the right path that leads to integrity, self-satisfaction and reputation that could outlive generations.”

Our leaders have this same poisonous mindset. This is why they can't stop stealing, even after they have enough to live on for generations.

Please if you are trying to be funny,just state so but never ever equate Gani as a man who actually fought for the masses to any Nigerian leader we have now.Dont ever do that.Gani was called the people's champion by all and sundry for a reason.He was jailed and hated by all Nigerian corrupt leaders for a reason.Learn to know about our true heros and stop spewing disrespectful innuendos left and right

Y'all must learn to rise above the orchestrated cacaphony of deceit around the fmr EFCC boss, he's no hero but a fraud.

A trusted source once disclosed to us that Nuhu bought atleast 4 houses for himself at choice locations in Abuja, Dubai and Britian!


They include a house at No 18 Mambilla street, off Udi hills Street, Maitama; a flat at Palm Beach estate, Dubai; and another property at 29, Kingsway, Leeds UK.

Where would he cart the missing dossiers prior to his deserved sacking as the EFCC boss to?

These and many more ills cant be the reflection of Good Gani.

Inasmuch as I would have wanted to fault Ribadu for joining the party of thieves headed by Thiefnubu,there is hardly any party in this country that have no rogues or former corrupt leaders.To an extent,I believe in this guy but it is going to be very difficult for the power-drunk we have at the helms of affairs to allow him rule.
Re: Ribadu: How Gani Fawehinmi Mentored Me by abokinside: 11:35am On Aug 18, 2013
In 2011 I voted Ribadu and I am glad I did. Please can any one mention any Nigerian living or dead that has dealt corruption the kind of blow Ribadu did apart from Muritala and Buhari because they were commanders in chief at their time, but Ribadu was just a very courageous young officer who knew there was a job to be done and gave it his very best, though not your most eloquent speaker but sure knows how to get the job done. He is not an ethnic jingo nor a religious bigot he is very very moderate and exposed gentleman, but was shocked when my people rejected him and preferred to try their luck with the lucky one whose only visible potential is luck. No wonder we are so unlucky cos he has gone with the entire Nations luck. I laugh when you mention candidate A and people say what is he doing in Jagaban's party or Candidate B and you ll hear well still needs to go to the senate to "learn" governance. The same people rejected Gani, Utomi etc at the polls but are quick to embrace the Gejs, the anenihs and the uduagans. A people get the kind of leaders they deserve. God cannot be mocked.
