Godswill Akpabio Should Be Sacked Immediately To Safe The Dignity Left In NDDC [Opinion]
I have always been a big fan of Senator Godswill Akpabio, from when he was the governor of Akwa Ibom state with the gospel concerts he organizes, inviting gospel music artists from all works of life. But with the recent things I have read and heard, I believe he should be suspended pending the conclusion of investigations.
Nigeria currently is facing so many challenges rushing from different sectors and agencies. All in the name of corruption or anti-corruption and anti-graft forces in the country.
The Covid-19 Pandemic has in it's own way promoted or become a basis for some officials of government agencies to loot as much as they can. The two major cases in the face of governmental agencies going through scrutiny right now is the EFCC and NDDC.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC in the past weeks faced a severe scrutiny when their suspended acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu was arrested or taken for questioning by the presidential panel.
Although he was released after 10 days of detention and interrogation, he was suspended few days into the interrogation by president Mohammadu Buhari.
In my opinion, president Mohammadu Buhari suspended Ibrahim Magu, in other to safe the dignity left in the EFCC, a move that was made even without being told or adviced to take.
In the same way, I am urging the president to sack the Minister for Niger Delta Development Commission, Senator Godswill Akpabio, to save the face of the agency.
There is so much to be done by the agency in Niger Delta region, if all the allegations and misappropriations are doing to be true, then the Senator must be jailed as well.
The president made a good move suspended the acting Economic and Financial Crimes Commission's acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu because he was being accused or alleged of corruption, the same should be fine to the Minister for Niger Delta Development Commission, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
I also, charge all Nigerians not to settle for corruption, the recent trend and exposure has shown that many have been stealing from the county in millions and billions, in other to stop the trend, we need to stand on out ground and say no to corruption even in our own little daily life.
Once again, to save the dignity left of the people in the Niger Delta Development Commission, Senator Godswill Akpabio should be suspended till the investigations are completed.
