Ibori’s guilty plea an indictment on judiciary, politicians

Mrs. Gladys Olowu, Chairperson of the Nigerian Council of Elders in the UK said corruption “smells” in Nigeria because corrupt officials are always shielded from punishment, adding that  a few of those prosecuted “with kid gloves live comfortably in jail”.

Mrs. Olowu, who described Nigeria’s future as “bleak and uninspiring” said the only way out is for the young and upcoming Nigerians to rise up and take their destiny in their own hands by making a clean break from the current generation of Nigerians whose system is embedded with corruption.

UK Chairman of Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Alhaji Garba Sani said Ibori’s guilty plea and eventual sentencing should serve as a warning to all corrupt politicians and officials that sooner or later, they would pay the price of their misdemeanor. Alhaji Sani, who reiterated the long-held view that most Nigerian officials are corrupt, said it was a shame that another country (UK) had to do what Nigeria ought to have done in its fight against corruption, and listed former governors Joshua Dariye and Diepreye Alamieyeseigha as some of those ruffled by British justice on behalf of Nigeria.
