March 13, 2013 – Go And Steal No More: President Jonathan Pardons Ex-Convicts Bulama, Alamieyeisegha & Others

President Goodluck Jonathan has granted pardon to some Nigerian ex-convicts who embezzled million of Naira in the past.

The men will no longer be referred to as convicts.

According to PREMIUM TIMES report on Tuesday morning, the Council of States headed by President Goodluck Jonathan, Tuesday afternoon, granted state pardon to his former boss and ex-Bayelsa State Governor, Diepreiye Alamieyeisegha.

The former governor, who was convicted for embezzling state funds while he was Bayelsa Governor, was pardoned alongside another convict and former head of the Bank of the North, Shettima Bulama.

Mr. Bulama, like Mr. Alamieyeisegha was investigated and later prosecuted for corruption by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Sources at the meeting say the Council meeting, attended by three former heads of states and some state governors also granted state pardon to some of those convicted for coup plotting by the Sani Abacha administration.
