A recent report from Sahara Reporters has disclosed how the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is currently grilling the former Aviation minister of Nigeria, Femi Fani Kayode concerning his contrived method of getting adjournments to evade his trial through forged medical reports.

The report has it that the former minister has been submitting series of letters with similar reasons which are medically related to purportedly evading his trial, thus the anti-graft agency found it necessary to look into the development since it's becoming numerous and repetitive.

Recall that the APC stalwart who recently defected from the major opposition party (PDP) to the ruling party had been standing trial for a very long time now over an alleged N4.6 billion fraud case.
Consequently, in the light of this development, I equally deduced how the recent move by EFCC on Kayode's case inadvertently impacted on APC's integrity as a political party.
Certainly, many Nigerians have over the years developed the mindset that whenever an embattled politician facing corruption or criminal charges joins the ruling party that he or she will automatically become untouchable.

However, the recent development playing out now has partially nullified the false assertion that any corrupt politician that joins APC would be cleansed of their iniquities, considering the fact APC is unable to interfere on EFCC's case with Fani Kayode.
Do you agree with me on this?
