Nigerian Illegitimate Government Revoves Acclaimed Anti-Corruption Crusader, Nuhu Ribadu

"Democracy can neither be attained nor sustained in a state of political illegitimacy."
~ Orikinla Osinachi

Mr. Nuhu Ribadu, Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been removed to scuttle the investigation of former president Olusegun Obasanjo's daughter, Senator Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello, over the alleged N3.5 billion contract scam involving an Austrian firm, M. Schneider GMBH, and the ongoing prosecution of other criminal suspects who were sponsors of the presidential campaign of Alhaji Umaru Yar’Adua and were also the employers of the political thugs and other criminals who rigged the last April polls in Nigeria.

The cookie is crumbling.

Prof. Wole Soyinka's commentary on the sudden removal of Nuhu Ribadu is a must read.
