EFCC Declares War On Sacked Governors
WHY EFCC DECLARES WAR ON SACKED GOVERNORS
Indications mount the air at the moment that the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC will not spare some of the sacked governors by the Supreme Court of Nigeria due to different allegations leveled against them as a result of fund mismanagement.
It would be recalled that, Ibrahim Idris of Kogi State, Timipre Sylva of Bayelsa State, Muritala Nyako of Adamawa State, Aliyu Wamako of Sokoto State and Liyel Imoke of Cross River State, were all part of those that were sacked last week while dismissing the earlier judgment that upheld the extension of their tenures.
It has been held that Ibrahim Idris, Sylva and Nyako were having various petitions of financial irresponsibility hanging on their necks before they were abruptly shown the door out of government houses by the highest court.
A reliable source at the commission said that the anti-graft agency had begun the appraisal of the petitions against the affected ex-state governors and that they could be picked up for questioning this week. He said, “Yes, I can confidently tell you that the affected ex-state governors will be called upon by the EFCC to shed light on some of the allegations made against them”.
The commission has had so many petitions against some of the ex-state Governors, but could not act because the immunity clause.
Their recent sack has given the Commission the power to act and begin to clampdown on them as from next week .
The commission’s spokesperson, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren confirmed that the EFCC had received petitions against some governors. He said that the commission will begin probe of the sacked governors in few days from now.
