Ibori’s conviction remain valid ~ UK court

Regardless of the evidence of high handedness on the part of a British police officer during investigations, Britain’s state prosecution agency yesterday said former Delta State Governor James Ibori’s convictions remain valid. Ibori, who as governor from 1999 to 2007, is serving a 13-year sentence in a British prison after pleading guilty in 2012 to 10 counts of fraud and money-laundering. He is the most senior Nigerian politician to have been held to account for the corruption that has blighted Africa’s most populous nation for decades.

Calling for Buhari’s resignation is silly

The call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is silly, the All Progressives Congress (APC) said. In a statement by the National Secretary of the APC, Mallam Mai Mala Buni on Thursday he said the PDP should apologize to Nigerians and return stolen public funds. “The PDP faction by its demand to return the country to the years where looting of the public treasury was the order of the day, has taken its orchestrated plot to deflect attention from the economic mess it left behind to new insensitive and shameless heights”, Buni stated. “While the PDP attempts to fraudulently re-write history and misrepresent facts on its misrule of the country, Nigerians are traumatised on a daily basis on disclosures of the startling level of pillage of the country’s commonwealth perpetuated under its watch. “Instead of saving for the rainy day, past PDP administrations and their cronies literally looted the public...
