ogene007:

Your type are worse than the Almajiris in the north in that you don't know, and don't want to know. The only thing you know is to go on social media to advertise your ignorance in the form of moronic comments. The erudite Prof has hit the nail on the head by stating that we do not have the minimum systems and processes to tackle corruption as is being done in other countries.

The APC have up till now decided not accept that the freedom of information law applies to them or even domesticate it if they insist that it is on the concurrent list, despite the rulings of various high courts to the contrary. This has made it nearly impossible for the public to access information on the looting going on at the state level, just as we are accessing information as to what is happening at the federal level. Is it not an irony that the APC are the ones singing about 'change'? I guess that one of the first thing they will do if they get into power is to water down the FOI law, or scrap it altogether so as to protect themselves from public scrutiny.

There is presently before the national assembly, the asset forfeiture bill that has been gathering dust since 2010, which will go a long way in ensuring that people do not benefit from loot of any kind. The law bill stipulates that any asset traced to you would be confiscated by the government if you are unable to prove how you earned it. It seeks to transfer the burden of proof from the government to the accused making it cheaper and faster for the prosecution of corruption cases. In addition to the passage of this bill, there is the need to amend the constitution, removing immunity from prosecution on corruption cases for the president and all the governors, a special court to handle corruption cases, a new evidence act to ensure that computer print out of bank account statements of can be tendered in court to also ease the difficulties in prosecuting corruption cases etc.

The combination of the FOI law and the asset forfeiture law will definitely be a game changer in the fight against corruption. Infact, it will make political office unattractive because a corrupt politician will not get away with corruption. These are the basic minimum systems and processes existing in the US, UK, even South Africa.

So, when Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is saying that Nigeria presently does not have these systems/processes to effectively fight corruption, she is absolutely correct and people who are clueless about this issue should just shut up. Beyond going on the social media to post "Sai Buhari", you guys should ask the relevant questions as to how Buhari wants to prosecute the so-called anti-corruption war if voted into power, operating within the legal confines of the extant laws of the land.

It is pertinent to note that a lot of the Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs), who presently are part of the so-called progressives like Wole Olanipekun and co, have become specialists in defending politicians accused of corruption in court. They have perfected the art, in collusion with some corrupt judges, in getting adjournments after adjournments of corruption cases to ensure that EFCC gets tired of prosecuting cases over so many years without even the court looking into the main substance of the cases. In some of these cases, the defense counsel will be contesting jurisdiction for as many years as possible. How do you expect the government to continue to pay its prosecution lawyers for close to ten years just to get a conviction that may never happen. Out of frustration, EFCC would then end up settling for the plea bargain option which is basically allows the thief to go home with more than 80% of his loot.

In summary, nigeria must restructure if she must move forward because the corrupt national assembly becomes bipartisan when it comes to protecting itself from anti-corruption agencies. They have become so powerful that the only way in ensuring that the asset forfeiture bill is immediately passed into law is a mass action from the nigerian people, demanding that these systems and processes are immediately put in place. This is beyond all the noise making by the self appointed APC "change agents" who we all know are as corrupt, it not more than the PDP.

You talk about police and sub police as if these are sent from heaven. Developed worlds are looking for ways to limit or even phase out traditional policing to be replaced by technology, you are here talking rubbish and feeling intelligent. A relative of mine who have worked in the police force for more than 32yrs now always says to anybody that would listen that she has seen too many armed robbers killed by the police but yet robbers are still robbing. She says that even in the venue where robbers are being executed, others are coming to steal and pick pockets there. Go to the ghettos in New York where many black people are being thrown into jails everyday, yet the crime rates are still high there. All you guys want to see is people being jailed, how about prevention for a true change. Even the US is tired of building jails cause they are expensive to maintain and operate in the long term. The right institutions, driven by the right technology and over seen by the right hearts should be the right means of policing in this modern time and not just uniformed men who are themselves are sometimes as corrupt as the ones they are expected to police.

It is your ability to REASON and the those who liked your statement that should be in question here.

If you do not have hatred running through your vein, you'll COMPLETELY agree with her. Now which of her statement rattles you?

This one:
the absence of the relevant systems and institutions that will help check corruption has created opportunities for people to engage in the act.

Or:

“This thing has been with us and we must crack it. This is not something that started in this country today; but it is something that we must crack "

Even a primary school pupil will understand these statements.

Like you know the duties of the Police or EFCC or the ICPC. Did you not also read this part:

The minister said that the names of the persons found to be involved in the act had been sent to the ICPC for further action.

Bro you need to be educated. It is a pity if you reason like this and claim to have passed through the fall walls of a university. If indeed you did have education even at the secondary school level, you must have done Social Studies or Government or in the university, you must have done one or two Social Sciences course.

That is the predicament that informed these senseless statements from Iweala.

Ah ha....you again.

If you claim her statement is senseless, then what about you? Don't you think you couldn't get her message which was in clear and simple English? Don't you think also that your post here is senseless? The answers will depend on how you understand these statements from her:

“This thing has been with us and we must crack it. This is not something that started in this country today; but it is something that we must crack.

“Fundamentally, we have to ask ourselves, why has this continued to be a problem; I am convinced that it is because we constantly look at the symptoms and not the cause of the disease.

“The cause of the disease is we don’t have in place the institutions, the systems and the processes to block and prevent it in the first place.
“That’s the only difference between us and the people abroad.`

“This is so important now because of technology and I am a total fan of the use of technology and electronic platforms to block the leakages in this country.

“We must use them the way they are being used in other countries.“
Okonjo-Iweala said that the introduction of the Government Integrated Financial Management System (GIFMS) had helped to reduce physical movement of cash to make payments and curb corruption.

She said that the Integrated Personnel Payment System had also helped government to remove ghost workers from the system and save money in the process.

You made some valid points but those points reek of blank hypocrisy.

We know that asset forfeiture act, removal of immunity clause and review of evidence act will go a long way in curbing corruption, my question is; WHY ARE THE LAWS NOT PASSED?

Before you blame it on the law makers hence absolving Iweala and Patience Goodluck, let me quickly remind you the laws that were passed in recent times.

NERC act as amended was quickly passed into law, we didn't even get the chance to peruse its contents before the legislation express tickets was granted, as Nigerians what we noticed is that a 750 naira access charge have been smuggled into the new law and implementation to commence effective immediately.

Later, we found out again that the privatization exercise gave a friend of Mr president the right to operate a DISCO comprising of 4 states without competition, the states are Anambra, Enugu, Imo and Abia states.
let us assume that there are 20 million homes in this four states (probably more), the new law guarantees that Patience and associates will enjoy a whooping 15,000,000,000 naira upfront whether or not they serve you electricity.

Can you explain to us without insulting our collective intelligence how the law that lined the pockets of associates of the president get express attention in the National assembly while the laws that will form an institutional frame work for fighting corruption is caught up in traffic or rightly put, legislative bottlenecks?


Another law that will interest you is the indigenisation policy act as amended we did not know the details of the law till SPDC decided to dispose off 5 oil blocks OML26, 30, 34, 40 and 42, BPE insisted that the new law must be followed to encourage indigenous companies to participate in oil and gas acquisition, before we could shout "blood of god", 5 oil blocks estimated at
2 billion barrels of crude worth over $200b flew wings and landed in the pockets of friends and cronies of Mr president.

Till date I am still in shock how the legislature was able to block the PIB, could it be that the legislature have seen the thick choppings there in and they have not agreed on a sharing formula? OR the prayers of men and women in the oil sector have been answered?

If iweala believes the institutions don't exist, why are the institution of corruption growing fat by the day? what is the formula they are using to approve laws that line their pockets that refused to work for the greater good of Nigerians?

Just recently, Iweala was accused of manipulating NBS figures

Now that you decide which economic statistics published by NBS to accept and which ones to ‘change the methodology’ to give favourable figures, you can keep feeding your manipulated figures to your international media circus for the vain glorious awards to sustain an empty hype, while Nigerians groan under hardship. We can actually ask Nigerians whether they are getting better off now contrary to your bogus figures.... Prof Chukwuma Souldo

I know most of you may not understand the enormity of that allegation, while madam is feeding world bank with fictitious figures that the economy is growing, Nigerians are languishing in abject poverty, World bank believe that Nigeria
is the 3rd fastest growing economy in the world based on figures iweala fed them, it wont be long before world bank and their cohorts will withdraw aid, loans and other support believing we are who we are not.

How can a woman who manipulated the little "institution" we have claim we lack those "institutions" while making no reasonable attempt to bring on board new water proof institutions.

You can help her to answer the questions if you can.

If the problem Nigeria is facing is just evading tax, then we dont have a problem.

In those countries, before u even start working and earning you need social security or some form of id in the system. Govt can track how many employess it has and the salaries paid. In Nigeria govt does not even know how many employees it has and they are still paying salaries .

Even if you are a police officer who books people for over speeding or u sell ticket at the train station. Every ticket given and fine collected is stored in the system.

Here a police officer stops u and tells u ur fine is 10 but bring 2k. Someone who is suppose to be collecting a levy for govt, prints his own fake reciept and is collecting the money.

Is it better to chase after each individual engaged in this corruption or ensure that there is a computerized system that documents all revenues collected.

why do u think offices in govt often get burnt when a director is about leaving office? This is just to burn the paper so he or she does not have to account. But if the info was in a database somewhere, a report on their activities will just be generated. Dont be shallow in ur thinking because of politics.

When FFK was in APC it was not bad...now he is in PDP, it is wrong! God is watching you in 3D

FFK holds the right to be in APC or PDP. He, however, shouldn't be holding that post for the president, when he still has corruption case in court. For your info, the court only struck out some of the cases against him. He still has other charges hanging over his neck. Call a spade a spade my guy. wrong thing is wrong and can never be painted right...
