Ex Gov. Lamido of Jigawa returns, to report at EFCC on Thursday



Alhaji Sule Lamido, the immediate past Governor of Jigawa, on Monday, returned to the country from his foreign trip and promised to visit the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) on Thursday.

Lamido stated this while speaking with newsmen in his Bamaina village in Birninkudu Local Government area of the state.

He said that EFCC was anti graft agency of the government, recognised by law, therefore, he would not shun the invitation.
“I am aware of the invitation.’’

According to him, he is always willing to honour this kind of invitation even when he is a governor that enjoys immunity.

Lamido, however, said he would not join issues with the incumbent governor on the debt he left before leaving office.

It would be recalled that there was a conflicting figure on the debt inherited by APC-led government in the state.

The former governor said that while leaving office, he held a special council meeting, where he briefed the press on the liabilities he left.

    Our political leaders are so arrogant that even when they are out of government, they still wear the garment of untouchable to a constituted authority.

    Come to think of it, is it the former Governor that would dictate when he will meet the EFCC ? Where any agent of government is adequately empowered and the intergrity of such agent is not compromised, such an invitation should be highly and speedily honoured.

    By his attitude to this invitation, it is glaring that nothing is going to come out from the invitation. Politicians cover their evil deeds in collaboration with their staff. Files are removed, information is doctored, forms are mutilated to cover facts. Eventually ,they are left off the hook
