A large number of immediate past governors are being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
A senior operative in EFCC revealed that some immediate past governors and their family members will soon be charged to court. Their offends include money laundering, bribery, and abuse of public office. The senior operative revealed that;
“It has been a floodgate of damning allegations for most of the immediate past governors. We are investigating every matter in details and sieving out frivolous ones. The truth is that many of them stand indicted and will have to be prosecuted for money laundering, stealing and other corruptions charges.
“It is unbelievable that very few can escape if the judiciary doesn’t look at technicalities. You know we don’t adjudicate”
President Buhari has promised to eradicate corruption from Nigeria and put offenders hid bars. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has aligned itself with the president’s bid fight corruption, especially among public office holders. The commission also appears to be more active than it was in the last administration.
This probes and investigations on immediate past governors do not come as a surprise to many Nigerians because the past administration was allegedly marred by an abundance of corrupt officials.
