Igbos, Ijaws And Other Southerners (non Yorubas) - Where Do You Stand ? by maxell(f): 12:03pm On Jan 22, 2009
My question to the Igbos, Ijaws, Edos, Efiks, Urhobos and other non-yorubas from southern Nigeria is:

Are you going to vouch for Yar'Adua for a second term in 2011 ? Because he is counting on you guys (as well as
his preciously guarded North) to win the 2011 presidential elections
.


The thinking in aso rock under Yar'Adua is that they don't need yoruba people to win re-election in 2011. This is why
they have concentrated on them for prosecutable purposes.

The swift in which ex health minister Adenike Grange was arraigned by the EFCC was really unprecedented. Despite the
fact that she did not have a single kobo lodged in her account, she was still charged to court. Up till date, we are yet to
hear anything regarding her case.

In the Power Probe, most of the people that gave testimonies heavily indicted former minister Liyel Imoke and infact, the
EFCC where on their way to charge him to court, but Yar'Adua left him off the hook.

Over N300 billion naira was spent on roads when Tony Anenih was minster of works, yet, the roads remain in a deplorable
condition. He has been left untouched.

Igbinedion was charged by the EFCC for stealing N3 billion naira, but he was asked to pay some meager amount
and is today a free man.

However, Bode George, Femi Fani-Kayode have been charged to court for corruption during their tenures at the
Nigerian Ports Authority and Aviation Ministry.

Where yorubas the only ones corrupt during OBJ's 8 year tenure ?

Also, El-Ruai and Ribadu are being singled out because of their loyalty to Obasanjo.
