The Senior Special Assistant to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Chairman, Investigation Panel For Recovery of Public Property, Chief Okoi Obono Obla, has said that it is extremely dangerous fighting corruption in a country that is fantastically and pervasively corrupt as Nigeria.
He made this statement on Saturday, during a chat with The Nigeria Lawyer (TNL).
According to him, matrons, patrons and agents of corruption are everywhere, so when you take on corruption, corruption fights back through threats, intimidation, harassment, defamation, sponsored smear campaigns in the electronic, print and social media.
“Even the National Assembly that is constitutionally empowered to fight corruption behaves like patron, matron and agent of corruption,” he said.
When did the National Assembly become an inquisitor, investigator or even the Court? Does the National Assembly has the power to investigate the educational qualification or credential of anybody?, he asked.
According to him, the National Assembly has no right to investigate such matter.
“I don’t give credence to the charade that took place in the House of Representatives on Tuesday which to all intents and purposes was organized, sponsored and calculated to embarrass me.
“It has massively failed. I refuse to bow to sponsored falsehood or any form of intimidation by those whom I am investigating.
They should return Nigeria money they have stolen, period. The fight against corruption is my life. I am ready for whatever fate befalls me,” he added.
