September 12, 2016 – Nigerians Call For Patience Jonathan’s Prosecution Over N13Billion Loot

Many Nigerians have expressed outrage over the bid by former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, to reclaim the sum of $34.1 million (N13.31 billion) lodged in some bank accounts linked to her. They demanded the prosecution of the ex-first lady and her husband, former President Goodluck Jonathan, over the matter.

The fund was trapped following the freezing of the accounts by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on the suspicion that they were proceeds of money laundering. The former first lady had dragged the EFCC and Skye Bank to court over the freezing of accounts allegedly belonging to the former presidential aide, Waripamo Dudafa.

According to her, the fund, which were lodged in business accounts opened in the name of Dudafa belonged to her. Former governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, urged the EFCC to probe not just the former first lady, but also her husband, over the bank accounts.

Musa, who spoke with Daily Telegraph yesterday, said that while the former first lady must be held accountable for the huge fund linked to her, the investigation cannot be complete if it was not extended to her husband. “She is not the only one; even her husband should be probed.

The investigation will have no meaning if Jonathan is not probed. How did she come about that type of money? Of course, she couldn’t have got that kind of money without her husband creating the opportunities,” he said. Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), the chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee on Corruption (PACC) told DailyTelegraph that Jonathan’s wife must explain how she acquired the money.

  1. OF COURSE WHO WOULDN’T want her probed except the one who might be implicated? My only problem is that even if EFCC boldly marches to prosecute her, in a place like Nigeria, this case would never be decided even in 10 years, if ever. The weight of people that would pile behind her would bring down the arm of justice. If ordinary Ibinabo could thwart what they say it’s the hope of the common man, we can be sure that Patience Jonathan and her fellow coven members that sucked the economic blood of the nation could do much more. Nigeria is just a difficult country.

  2. Chai… No wonder that our top commentator, Omokehinde always lambast GEJ for all the financial recklessness in his administration. I see.

    If the ex first lady has this kind of amount that can revolutionise all Nigerians if well managed, HOW much does the husband have in his hidden Accounts in foreign Banks?

    The Law is surposed not to be a respecter of any but in Nigeria where anything goes, where corrupt public officers are celebrated in high ovation and held in high esteem, THE LAW is a respecter of some UNtouchable chosen few.

    Otherwise, this short black ugly fat illiterate buffon cannot just sit on an amount that could have gone a long way to put some smiles on many dying Nigerians and go scot free.

    We are waiting how they are going to decide this case…
    Whatever the case, I just believe that……
    THINGS CAN ONLY GET BETTER.

    I take a stroll…

  3. @metu nice talk it seems i am not the only that knows we are operating government of the rich..i would love to see her being probed because i believe that
    money was an illegal why would she claim an account not opened in her name i can smell rat…

  4. The public outcry from the Nigerians to have this wicked woman prosecuted cannot be over emphasized.

    Nigeria has been rendered a wasteful country to it citizens by our corrupt politicians. This is a country that is the most endowed and blessed in africa with all types of mineral resources to be annexed and utilized for more productivity so as to better the lives of poor nigerians.

    Rather than those resources serving as a source of joy and blessing to the nigerians,it has now become a course, shame and a source of public ridicule to the world at large.
    “THE ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CRIME COMMITION” (EFCC) therefore should prove to Nigerians that they are there and ready to serve the Nation interest by bringing those political arm robbers to stand trial one of whom is madam Patience Jonathan.

    The eyes,ears,minds of not just Nigerians but the whole world are definitely toward the unethical behaviour and sensitive case of this corrupt woman who joined hands with the rest of PDP officials in bringing total ruin to the economy of our beloved nation.

    We need swift,transparent and uninterrupted investigation into how and why madam Patience would be in possession of (N13.33billion) and the source of that money.

    The EFCC as an organisation might begin to dwindle and shaking to it very foundation thereby losing their credibility entirely if justice is not serve to Patience Jonathan as well as other corrupt PDP members alleged with embezzling “BILLIONS”of naira from the Nation’s accounts.

  5. Yet Pdp sympathisers are still blaming Buhari for the economic hardship in the country, Why won’t there be recession when Oga Jona, his wife and ministers vandalised the nations treasury. it beat my imagination to see people eulogising Jonathan on social media. I know the hatred many nigerians have for Buhari is just too much, but must we blame him for the failure of the past government to save when the price of crude oil was selling above $150 per barrel in the international market? I don’t know why nigerians like celebrating criminals, now Fayose that was disgraced out of office for looting his state finance dry has suddenly become their hero simply bicos he’s always on the news criticising Buhari just to cover up his mess. May God open the eyes of the suffering masses to receive sense and stop supporting criminals that are inciting them against the government. Na only God go judge una.

  6. Hmmm… I am surprised about the whole matter.. I’m just still watching and observing only if someone understands what I meant ….

    Like I say, our governments both PDP (People Deceiving People while the nations public funds are being looted and shared among wealthy men/woman in charge without the poor receiving a bite.. Though economic hardship was as low as 25%, n things were easy going with normal affordable rates. PDP are Cute criminals specialized in making life somehow better and easily manageable for common men. But yet public funds kept growing in their accounts.. This is very very surprising) and APC (Animals Probing the Country.. They are simply wolf in sheep clothing provoking the country with chain mistaken for change… while the country are dying of hardship, probing continues without ending yet zero solutions to current problem and situations. APC are councils of enemies fighting there enemies and exposing them because they are in charge.. They appear to be angels with zero qualifications to solving economic Hardship but do have Professional degree in probing.. while hardship increase at a high rate of 89%, Naira fell to infinity.. etc.. Amazing) Both PDP and APC are bloody liars, looters, deceivers, Armed Robbers, ritualist, etc.. Starting from IBB through ABACHA… Currently, The only good man in APC is Buhari but lacks sense and skills of driving d country to a higher level.. And the only good man in PDP is Jonathan who could do anything to save his ppl, but serious lack sense and experience in managing public funds and more of that. (In actual fact, this two warriors are complete liars. But I luv them still)
    The reason APC kept probing is because they are in power and ofcourse everyone would want to support n ride same path as the people in power in other to expose their enemies… but I tell u the fact that this same APC have a big skeleton in their cupboards too. one will but wonder what will happen if PDP happens to regain d presidential seat and begins to prob APC only then will you see how enemies will come running in as if they were best friends of PDP. So simply take this today that there are no single angels in politics. The tongue and appearance doesn’t reveal the secret in heart. Socrates once said the fear of politics is the beginning of wisdom.. I think I understand what he actually meant by that now.

    Go outer there and see how SARS, POLICE, EFCC, SSS, etc, are falsely and forcefully accuse innocent people and finally robbing them clean down by taking bribe at gun point or threaten to through them into cell in there offices if they don’t part with the requested amount of money… OUR MEN IN UNIFORM ARE COMPLETE CRIMINALS TOTALLY BASTARDIOUS UNREPENTANT CRIMINAL MOSTLY THIS SO CALLED APC MEN IN UNIFORM. THE WORST OF ALL IS POLICE AND SARS .. I DON’T WANT TO RECALL ALL I WITNESS THEM DOING MONTH AGO. THIEVES AND RAPIST OF THE HIGHEST ORDER.

    Honestly speaking is that the wisest men of all are Alinko Dangote and Mike Adenuga. This two multi billionaires will never step in to become president of Nigeria. I love this men…. Imagine what would have happened if Dangote was the ex-president and APC decides to prob him today everyone would have heard that Dangote whose net worths over $80billion has stolen Nigerians public funds and people would be chanting “thief thief crucify him”.. POLITICS IS AS FUNNY AS GOING TO TOILET WITHOUT TISSUE AND IN THE PROCESS USING UR HAND TO CLEAN YOUR ASS.

    LET’S KEEP WATCHING AS EVERYTHING UNFOLDS IN THE FURURE. MAY WE LIVE LONGER TO SEE HOW THE NEXT ELECTIONS WILL BE INORDER TO JUSTIFY OUR COMMENTS. I ALSO PRAY THAT GOD SHOULD GIVE THE CURRENT PRESIDENT AND GOVERNMENTS THE WISDOM SKILLS AND GOOD HEART TO TEND TO CURRENT ECONOMIC PROBLEMS AND MAKE NIGERIA GREAT AGAIN. MAY GOD HELP THE COUNTRY NIGERIA AND LIFT THEM ABOVE ALL COUNTRIES IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.

    And So…….

  7. nawa o, why always opposition party members this pdp mmembers that.does that mean that there is no corrrupt person in apc or what? while most of apc menbers was formal pdp members.buhari’s remote called efcc so una never trace any money for apc members account abi?.make una carry this una one sided fight against corruption commot for my face.

  8. @KOOLZ GOD BLESS U REAL GOOD FOR THAT WRITE UP, U DESERVE A BOTTLE OF COLD DRINK THIS AFTERNOON. AS FAR I AM CONCERN, BOTH APC AND PDP ARE LIARS. I DONT KNOW WHY SOME COMMENTATORS WILL BE SUPPORTING APC AS IF THEY ARE SAINT.

  9. @O’Nel u are a guru both of and in foolishness! I am fully in support of d probe but hw dare u applaud ds Buhari’s regime. Can u name any achievement of ds regime? Hw has d one-sided anti-corruption war helped us as a nation? Am nt here 2 take side but APC as a party has failed d 200million Nigerians. People voted ds govt so as to hav better standard of living. As we speak even Rwanda’s economy is better than ours. Buhari is busy pursuing rats when his house is on fire. Well i cant blame u cos u wake up every morning and disturb ur aged parents 4 food. It is time 4 ds govt to fix d economy or resign honourably cos Nigeria has more than what it takes both human and natural resources to fix d situation. God bless every1.

  10. I have said it before and I will continue hammering on it that we Nigerians are the cause of our own problem. Going through some above comments only few people are making reasonable contribution on this terrible high profile corruption case. How can you just assume that Buhari is prosecuting only PDP members not APC. Why are you guys trying to bring politics in a serious matter that suppose to attract millions of protesters? What you guys are saying is that it is okay this woman stole our $13 billion but what about other APC members who equally stole money?.

    The way i see this matter is that, you guys just have this hatred toward Buhari. You hate this man for no reason while your brother GEJ has done nothing to help you. With the amount of money in this woman’s coffer, she has ruined your future and your children future and you kept supporting her because you don’t know much damage she has caused you and your family. Fellow Nigerians why are we so economical with the truth?. This woman made self confessional statement that I own that money and you still blame Buhari for this.

    Buhari’s Predecessor ruined this Country economically and you are asking successor to just fix the economy. Buhari should stop probing and fix the nations economy as if that is all that easy as ABC. Economy that cannot be fixed when your nation’s oil which is your only revenue sells at $150/ barrel now under $25/ barrel how do you want him to quickly fix everything without you people feel the heat first? What Buhari is doing now Isco to stop corruption first otherwise, corruption will just continue in cycling. You cannot ignore the prosecution part of fighting against corruption.

    What is happening in Nigeria now in regards to devaluation of currency and inflation is not deliberate intent of president Buhari. The IMF, International financial institution and local economists were the ones that advised Buhari to devalue Naira. They told him that Nigerians will suffer for it for short term basis and will bounce back to become the stronger economy. Buhari is just following the advise of experts.

    Let us not encourage the bad behavior. We must always come together to denounce corruption if we want this Country to move forward
