During the weekend, Dr. Reuben Abati, former Media Spoke Man to former President, Dr. Goodluck Ebele, Jonathan, whose regime is said to be the most corrupt in the country’s history, in his piece on Weekend’s Guardian, laments the absence of intellectuals and their inputs in the affairs of the country, which some thinkers should drop it as its hot and asked “What has been the benefits of the ones that had been, which he argued used to exist then?” Has it not been their system and results that produced the likes of former Presidents, Late Alhaji Musa Yar’ Ardua, and Dr. Ebele Goodluck Jonathan, Michael Aondoaka, James Onefe Ibori, Dimeji Bankole, Femi Otedola, Jim Ovia, Cecelia Ibru, Erastus Akingbola, Farouk Lawal, Maina, Senate president, Dr. Abubakar Saraki, Ekweremadu, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Rotimi Ameachi, and all the others across the country, readily aided by an equally corrupt Judges, Lawyers and judiciary system, whom common sense have failed long ago, as they ended up fostering “corruption” emblem on the entire country.
To me, our intellectual, Judiciary, spiritual, moral and other departments have failed us from the beginning and they have been dead long ago, thus the pains we are experiencing as a country. It thereby, become correctional and ideal that the arrow heads in the whole corruption allegations are, without bias or sentiments arrested, and tried judiciously according to Nigeria law, not to be presided by these current crops in the judiciary. So that it would serve as deterrent to ‘would be’ government’s officials in the future. Also the pipe through which these corrupt crops of produce emanate from should be shot down from the source at once, so as to stop them from further producing these defective products for the society. Purposeful new inputs and re-engineering should be directed at the source, with the conditioning of getting a better outcome than what we have today. If Nigeria would survive!
