Nigerian Politicians have devised a very funny way of responding to any summons to give account of stewardship, be it in an investigative panel or in a law court.
Seemingly healthy politicians always develop all manner of illness once its time to give account.
Yesterday at the NDDC investigate Hearing, Daniel Keme Pondei, the Acting Managing Director of the NDDC fainted just when he was being grilled over the spending of Billions of Naira allocated to the commission.
This has been a very popular tactics of politicians who are trying to evade justice.
Lets look at similar incidents:
Olisa Metuh, the former PDP spokesman who is currently serving jail term for corruption and embezzlement also tried to stall his trial by purportedly being ill, he was coming to trial on a stretcher.
This is also similar to that of Senator Dino Melaye who came to his own trial in Lokoja on a stretcher. He was looking bedridden then but today he is free and healthy even making mockery music for his political opponents.
Abdulrasheed Maina also came on wheelchair to his own trial in court for diversion of Billions of Pension funds.
Peter Fayose, former governor of Ekiti state when he had issues with federal law enforcement agencies complained of severe neck pain and even cried on National television.
These incidents has made many Nigerians to create some funny means to cushion the effects of the abnormalities.
