Buhari Appoints A Crook as INEC Chairman by anonimi: 8:39pm On Oct 22, 2015
October 22, 2015

Following demand by several readers for proof that the out gone Executive Secretary, Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), Dr. Ahmed Modibbo Mohammed got N850 million from Education Tax Fund (ETF), now TETFund, we hereby publish the following:

1. Copy of the letter from Modibbo to his colleague in ETF, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu requesting the release of the N850 million for “procurement of additional classroom sitting materials (CKD) for junior secondary schools-release of the 85% take-off grant.”
Dated 7th September, 2007, this was the first official assignment undertaken by Modibbo who assumed office three days earlier.

2.Copy of page 26 of Daily Trust newspaper of Friday, August 22, 2008 (a year later) where Modibbo announced “Invitation for Pre-Qualification of Firms to Tender for the Production and Supply of Plastic Desks and Chairs for Junior Secondary Schools.”

The then UBEC boss announced in the opening paragraph of the third column of the advertorial: “UBEC, a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Education HAS RECEIVED financial support from the Education Tax Fund (ETF) and intends to apply the PROCEEDS for the procurement of high-grade impact resistant copolymer resin desks and chairs for the basic education sub sector at the states and FCT level in Nigeria.”

As a consequence of a court order obtained by the firms that originally won the contract, Intermarkets Nig. Ltd and Intermarkets USA, stopping UBEC from re-awarding the contract to any other firm, no single chair or desk was purchased with the N850 million ETF released in September 2007.

Modibbo and Yakubu have both left office without declaring the whereabouts of the N850 million meant for the plastic chairs and desks. If N850 million was fixed in September 2007, at 14 per cent interest rate, the minimum current value now would be N1.6 billion which neither Modibbo nor Yakubu has provided answers to.

there is a big question mark in buhari's anti-corruption crusade, most of the people he appoints into public offices, have question marks, integrity-wise, many of them still members of PDP he accused of destroying Nigeria in 16years, coupled with this his northernization, is buhari for here for Nigeria or here for northern Nigeria?

I pity the President. He is day, after day diging a grave for himself. He thinks, he can just appoint people from the Sky, and NOONE will know about their past deeds. I can recall both Metuh and Rev Kukah both said that there is NOONE he can appoint, that Nigerians do not know, or does not have someone who knows them. With Fashola, Amaechi, Daura and this new clown, the President has just bought a loaded gun and has it pointed at his forehead.

I guess this proves that the so called fight against corruption is all about the more you look the less you see.. Even for his worst critics, this is an all time low... How can a government that prides herself as a government of change and a government that claims to be fighting corruption imposing as the electoral umpire a man engrossed deeply in a corrupt case? What kind of hypocritical government is this?

Damn.
What a mess.
I am not surprised.
For a govt that appointed amaechi, nobody is too corrupt for political appointment as long you have an APC affiliation.

TETFUND is a hotbed of corruption for those who know, and I was shocked to see this a.bo.ki thief who stole billions at TETFUND rewarded with INEC chairmanship. Is this the so-called Saint Buhari that is reputed to have zero tolerance for corruption? Is this what Nigerians have been scammed into?

When they say Buhari is fighting against corruption,i just shake my head and feel great pity for this country. You're fighting against corruption yet you've supported the appointment of all the well known corrupt people in the country? Then who else are the corrupt politicians? Ghosts? Or the unfortunate scape goats? Let them keep on deceiving those who want to be deceived...
