When the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission charged Olisa Metuh the former Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party for laundering funds meant for the war against Boko Haram, Metuh had explained that he could not have known the source of the funds Col Sambo Dasuki (the National Security Adviser) gave him.
He went further to explain that the said 400million Naira his company received was for a stated national assignment approved by the then-sitting president Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.
To defend himself therefore he requested the Justice Okon Abang led court to subpoena the former President and Col Sambo Dasuki (the giver of the money) to testify reasons why his company was given such funds.
But quite surprisingly, Jonathan the acclaimed hero of Africa’s democracy failed to show up in defense of the then National Publicity Secretary of his party despite him been the approving agent.
The former President as it would seem only secured immunity from prosecution for his immediate family while his aides are hounded. We all witnessed how Orubebe and others including Deziani Allison the former Petroleum Minister is been branded as looters.
Jonathan and his wife Patience Faka continues to visit the presidential villa to wine and dine even though he ought to be called to account for the humongous pillage of our nations financial resources under him.
Metuh and Sambo Dasuki should not suffer alone because someone superior to them gave them express permission to assess the funds as such they should not suffer alone while their ex boss walks freely.
