No less than 11 former governors’ corruption cases with the EFCC have been stalled despite their media attention

 

Some of the ex-governors are either holding other elective positions or contesting in the 2023 elections

 

Top on the list is the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu and his counterpart in the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso

 

Since the establishment of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the commission had run-ins with many state governors over alleged misappropriation of state funds.

 

Nationnewslead reported that with the immunity conferred on these governors by the Nigerian constitutions, the anti-graft agency will have to wait for any executive under investigation to leave office before they can swing into action.

 

Okorocha, Obiano are recent ex-governors whose corruption cases have been stalled

 

The most recent among these cases is the arrests of former governors of Anambra and Imo, Willie Obiano and Rochas Okorocha.

 

However, despite the media trial of these arrests, it has always been getting poor trials, and convictions have been rare, even in remarkable cases.

 

It is important to note that many of the accused former governors in these corruption cases still hold or seek elections in public offices.

 

Last year, EFCC chairman Abdulrasheed Bawa, no less than 978 corrupt Nigerians were convicted between January and September 2021, adding that the anti-graft agency was winning the corruption war.

 

Below is the list of the former governors and their states:

 

 

Abdulaziz Yari – Zamfara

Theodore Orji – Abia

Tanko Al-Makura – Nasarawa

Godswill Akpabio – Akwa Ibom

Abdulfatah Ahmed – Kwara

Aliyu Wamakko – Sokoto

Ali Modu Sheriff – Borno Rabiu

Kwankwaso – Kano

Willie Obiano – Anambra

Bukola Saraki – Kwara

Nationnewslead earlier reported that state governors’ dethronement of traditional rulers is gaining more prominence in the Nigerian public space.

 

When talking about governors who have impeached monarchs in their states, the removal of the former Emir of Kano and ex-governor of the CBN, Lamido Sanusi, will always come to mind.

 

However, Sanusi was not the first, and nor was he the last traditional ruler that has been removed by a Nigerian governor since the return of democracy in 1999. Continue Reading
