SATURDAY BREAKFAST with TONY OKOROJI
DOES ANYBODY HAVE THE COURAGE TO DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AT THE NDDC?!
With the brouhaha going on in Minneapolis and the riots across America over the shocking murder of a black man named George Floyd by some rogue white police officers, it is so easy not to focus on what is happening at home. Or is it that nothing shocks us anymore?
I have been incredibly traumatized at the crazy news coming out during the week from the NDDC. It is most frightening. There are now allegations that a very senior official of the commission may have been murdered to cover up the stench and sleaze in the place. How can?
The voraciousness of the greed that seems to have gripped our countrymen cannot be explained. Everybody knows that there is serious corruption in Nigeria but this is no longer corruption. This is brazen daylight robbery never seen anywhere before. The schemes involved! The amount being revealed, in the midst of so much poverty?! I am dazed at the extent to which some people have taken the worship of money and I ask: What do these people need all this money for? Do they expect to live forever?
For the Nigerian nation to have any chance of survival, the NDDC matter must be dealt with in a different manner. The interests and money involved are so much that the usual processes will not do. Does anybody have the courage to do what needs to be done?
See you next week.
