“Former President Obasanjo came to power in 1999 with a tough moral posture to rid Nigeria of corruption, no matter whose ox was gored. In line with that commitment, members of the Abacha family and associates were forced into a deal to cough out billions of dollars, which they and their late father, General Sani Abacha, allegedly stole. In fact, former Information Minister, under Obasanjo, Professor Jerry Gana was regularly briefing the nation about the billions of dollars being “recovered” from the Abachas. The former Obasanjo administration promised to invest these billions into improving the quality of life of Nigerians.

We thought the enemy of corruption had finally come to the rescue.” .  . .  (more)
