Jolly Nyame: Supreme Court Upholds Conviction Of Ex-Taraba Governor by fergie001(m): 10:50am On Feb 07
The Supreme Court, on Friday, upheld the conviction and 12-year prison sentence that was handed to former governor of Taraba State, Reverend Jolly Nyame, for stealing public funds.

In a unanimous decision, a five-man panel of Justices of the apex court led by Justice Mary Odili, said it found no reason to set-aside concurrent judgements of both the trial court and the Court of Appeal, which found Nyame guilty of embezzlement and money laundering.

Justice Amina Augie who delivered the lead judgement, held that appeal Nyame filed to challenge his conviction and sentence, lacked merit.

However, the apex court held that the appellate court was wrong to also impose fine against the convict.

It therefore affirmed the imposed jail term but freed the convicted former governor from paying fine for the financial crime he committed against the state.

It will be recalled that Justice Adebukola Banjoko of an Abuja High Court had on May 30, 2018, found Nyame guilty on 27 out of the 41-count money laundering charge the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, preferred against him.

Specifically, the court sentenced him to 14 years for criminal breach of trust, 2 years for misappropriation, 7 years for gratification and 5 years for obtaining valuable public properties without consideration.

However, the appellate court on November 16, 2018, reduced the sentence which is running concurrently, to 12 years, 5 years, 4 years and one-year and nine months, respectively, with fines ranging from N100m to N5m.

Any politician found guilty of corruption should serve his prison term.

Their greed and heartlessness lead the country into the present mess.

I have zero mercy for criminal politicians, terrorist apologists, incompetent and myopic leaders.

Who says Buhari is not the the Best President Ever?

Nyame - former Governor , APC member , convicted
Joshua Dariye- former Governor , APC member , convicted

Orji Uzor Kalu -Senator, former Governor , APC member , convicted

No political interference whatsoever from the President....


I know your next question....let me reserve my answers....
