OBJ Wants Bribe Givers & Takers To Be Punished by Nobody: 12:25pm On Jun 28, 2012
I Know OBJ as a man who doesnt have a permanent friend or boy, if u mess up he will definitely treat your Bleep-up. Buh Is he saying he was not in the picture before the give and take , I tought Otedola is one of his boys, what do you think NLders, ok hear him


Against the backdrop of the bribery allegation between a member of the House of Representatives, Farouk Lawan and business mogul, Femi Otedola, over the fuel subsidy report, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has said both the giver and taker of bribe must be punished.

Speaking to the The Guardian of London, Obasanjo said fighting corruption in Nigeria was not a one-night affair.

His words: “Fighting corruption is not a one-night affair. The givers of most of the corruption in Africa are from outside Africa. They do in Africa (things) they would not do in their own countries. In my part of the world, we have a saying that the man who carries a pot of palm oil from the ceiling is not the only thief. He has an accomplice in the man who helps him to bring it down. The giver and the taker are criminals, and they should be treated as such.”

Obasanjo told the newspaper that instead of saying Nigerian leaders lack accountability, the paper should say they are corrupt. lipsrsealed lipsrsealed

“You are being euphemistic when you say lack of accountability. Call it corruption. There is no part of the world where corruption is absolutely eliminated. But (in other countries) corruption has not been a way of life. When you are found, you are dealt with. And that’s what we need.”

Obasanjo was in the UK to promote investment in Nigeria.

The former president who is working as a roving ambassador, facilitating firms’ entry into Nigeria and the rest of Africa grin grin grin said he believed that positive examples of business success would encourage avaricious minds to look for more legitimate routes to wealth.

He said: “I still believe in the opportunities that Africa affords to make legitimate money. Africa is one place I believe that if you are courageous enough, you get the money, you can invest and get 25 per cent return on your investment annually. There aren’t many places in the world where you can get that return.”

I guess I missed the part where he said farouk lawan and 0tedola should be punished. I think he was just talking of corruption generally in africa.
One thing you can't take away from him though is that he has guts. I wonder if he has dirts on all the politicians that nobody can probe him or make him give account of his stewardship.

If this is followed to the later then it means every house, street, church, schools will be turned to prisons because our prisons cannot contain 90% of Nigerians. Though i think it will bring back sanity to this country.

which truth? OBJ remains one of the biggest criminal in Nigeria.....he rigged and conducted and stole NIGERIANs mandate in an unprecedented manner, have u forgotten the litters of NAIRA in the National assembly when he was seeking for 3rd term? Have u forgotten the heap of Naira notes displayed when he wanted to remove OKADIGBO and the speaker of the house then? Which bribe is better or worst than these ones?....Eh...U should tell me. Have u forgotten that KEN NNAMANI.....the man that killed third term gave a vivid account of how billions was withdrawn from the CBN to pursue third term and he even threatened to give the cheque numbers for the withdrawal. Should OBJ not be languishing in jail by now? and u are here telling me truth has to be told. CAN A CRIMINAL EVER SAY THE TRUTH? I even wonder if he is not behind this bribery allegations as these are his apostles
