Obasanjo ‘remains the grandfather of corruption in Nigeria’, says Reps

The House of Representatives, has said that former President Olusegun Obasanjo ‘remains the grandfather of corruption in Nigeria and he has no moral authority to discuss corruption or indeed abuse of office in Nigeria’

Abdulrazak Namdas, spokesperson of the House of Representatives said that Chief Olusegun Obasanjo lacked the moral authority to discuss corruption because “the list of his corrupt acts while in office is endless.”

He remains the grandfather of corruption in Nigeria and lacks the moral authority to discuss corruption or indeed abuse of office in Nigeria as he remains the most corrupt Nigerian on record.

“Undoubtedly, the former President Obasanjo is understandably angry with the National Assembly as an institution having foiled his ambition for a third-term in office even after trying to corrupt the members with a bribe of at least N50m each.

 

“Lest we forget, the person who introduced corruption to the National Assembly is Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. He birthed the 4th Republic National Assembly with corrupt practices from day one; indeed the first day of the Republic.

 

“He bribed both PDP, ANPP and AD legislators on their inauguration in 1999 to vote against the majority candidate of PDP, Dr. Chuba Okadigbo. That was how Senator Evan Enwerem became Senate President.

 

“Have we forgotten the sacks of money displayed on the floor of the House of Representatives being bribe money paid by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo to some Honourable members to impeach Speaker, Rt. Hon. Ghali N’abba?

The House of Representatives is obviously reacting was to the former president’s statement at a forum on Wednesday during which he described the National Assembly as “a den of corruption” controlled by “a gang of unarmed robbers.”

  1. He was corrupt both as a miltary head of state and a civilian president

  2. Ehhhh why haven’t they gone after him? Selective fight against the corrupt opposition if you ask me!

    • ..Esther..u got it wrong..Generals dont fight each other..even in real war..its only the foot soldiers that go for each others troat..have u ever seen any past head of state/president gets indicted for anything?..No..coz they are all very close friends..

    • THAT IS TO TELL U THAT NO RULE WITHOUT EXCEPTIONS AND EXEMPTIONS AND IT TOTALLY NEGATIVES THE CONCEPT OF RULE OF LAW. THAT IS, EQUALITY OF EVARYBODY BEFORE THE LAW WHEREAS SOME ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS. LETS LEAVE EVERYTHING TO GOD.

  3. baba they don finished uoooh.

  4. Really he is, he will one day giv account 2 God . He spoil dz country

  5. I said already,that fight against corruption is like the birds fighting over feeds.Jonathan is just the grand child of corruption while Buhari,OBJ,IBB are the grand fathers of corruption.

  6. Most of our Leaders are Looters, No Visions for d Country, God judgement will come upon them expect if there is know God in Heaven. How many years are they going to spend to repair LAGOS- IBADAN express way. Those who steal billion are walking freely on d road but d little boy who steal Soup were being killed. WAT a Same.

  7. Though Obj is still a better democrat as you can talk freely about him, others even when its glaring that they are wrong you dare talk!

  8. NO,GREAT GRAND FATHER, OLD FOOL

  9. Ofonime odofu or wat are u been call corect ur specch minus buhari among them

  10. Obasanjo old fool we no DAT buhari is not doing well but u a foolish man DAT I have never see old fool.

  11. Obasanjo has raised a big question about the integrity of the National Assembly. Let’s address the issue instead of calling for the head of the man.

  12. No doubt, that’s why he knows that Legislators are unarmed Robbers in Nigeria.

  13. Obj is d senior advocat of lusifa

  14. This is not south south you use Ameachi against GEJ, if you try PMB a northern you go see ween.

  15. Therefore anti corruption fight should begins from the origin,but the question is,can a doctor surgically operate himself?.if yes then saint Buhari should start from himself,ie the period he ruled Nigeria as a dictator and his reign as incharge of PTF during the most corrupt government in the history of Nigera.(ABACHA)

  16. SINCE OUR INDEPENDENT ALL D RULERS IN NIGERIA ARE ALIENS FROM PLANET THIEVES EXCEPT MURTALAR MOHAMMED D REST IN FEDERAL AND STATES ARE UNDESIRABLE CRIMINALS IN GOVERNMENT IN NIGERIA DEY ARE BARAWOS AND OLES DEY ARE FIT FOR EXECUTION LIKE D ARM ROBBERS

  17. Those of you condemning OBJ are you in support of the monumental corruption being perpetrated by members of the NASS and House of Rep What Jibril recently revealed is a tip in the ice berg. Though OBJ is not a saint the present group are the worst

  18. All ur million can not buy death oju tiyin

  19. 1 – 1. over to you baba.we are waiting for your prompt reply sir.

  20. Yet wat OBJ achieved during his regime no government has achieve it in Nigeria

    • He achieved gsm only and nothing else. Infact, Obj does not deserve 2 talk about corruption bcos he is d great grand father of corruption in Nigeria, and he will soon go either earthly heavenly jail.

  21. You , don’t blame anyone for the woes of Nigeria, but let’s pray for its betterment.

  22. Na nw whona no becs he jst sent massage to baba

  23. Dis good godfather of yourbaland…mandla group..obj is good leads..as a good yourba people over the worldwide…me Engr sologold jp.
    Olayide love obj..

  24. Going on like,Nigeria will never be a good country again. Instead of apportioning blames,abusing others etc,why not put heads together and think of ways of eliminating this reccession? A country that is blessed with all d good things of life by God is now where people r dying of hunger,starvation etc. Our leaders both past and present ones r busy looting our money and sponsoring a developed country in her campaign yet minors r being killed and jailed for stealing garri and soup. Chaiii,God pls have mercy on us.

  25. If OBJ is the grandfather of corruption the grandchildren (NASS) can stop it

  26. Sometimes I wonder if some of these fb commentators hav a full grasp of what they are commentn on. Are they suggestn that there was no corruption b4 Obasanjo? Or what’s the arguement about Obasanjo being d grandfather of corruption about? Prior to OBJ coming on board in 1999, by general assessment, he was reputed to be d cleanest n most disciplined Head of Govt after Gowon so far in this country. I make bold to say this bcause I’m old enough to be an eyewitness of his escapades in govt, both in uniform n out of it, while most of those who comment on him today rely more on 2nd hand info possibly frm mischief makers. The system as was practiced by his then National Assembly corrupted him as most of his policies to move Nigeria progressively forward would NOT get their approval unless such policies were accompanied by Ghana- must-go bags. This is the same today’s NA intends to deal with Buarhi if care is NOT taken. . .

    • If he had resisted d idea of Ghana-must-go at dat time and burried it 2 dust, den dis nation would ve been beta up now. A man in white clothes saw people wearing black clothes and quickly change 2 white clothes, he is not capable of beeing a good leader.

    • U are right, Mr Ladan, & besides, u are entitled to ur opinion. But I want to liking we commentators to spectators in a ftball match. We criticise the players as if we can play better. Sometimes in politics & in gorvenance, u may hav to do the unthinkable just 4 u to hav ur way especially when u find urself in the midst of rotten, undisciplined & uncompromising ppl. B4 u know it u hav been corrupted.

  27. If you kwn that be4 why can you exposed him early,now that done on you,u are now crying,he is better than you rep and senate.

  28. The man president Buhari, who everybody clamour for dat whenever he venture into dat office, Nigeria our beloved county will never remain the same, is there and Nigerians are dying silently for hunger ETC. Lord, who could be the messiah dat will deliever us from dis wood and unpleasant tyrannic Ruling.

  29. OBJ and crusade of self protection and cleansing

  30. Legalize CORRUPTION so as to eliminate this news please.

  31. Musa Ibrahim, U are a barawo, discrimination will kill U, why did you after Ofonime, commend yours and go away, we’re all Nigerians, stop running after sombody, because of This one is Hausa not Yoruba, this one is Igbo not Fulani that is why you people are surfering today. Time is coming you will vote for you blind or disable brother to rule this country. God pass you.

  32. GOD LOVE THIS COUNTRY SO MUCH TO D EXTENT DAT SECOND CIVIL WAR NEVER BROKE OUT BCOS OF HUNGER.

  33. Musa from today learn to love, eavery Nigerians is your brothers and sisters Don’t call black white.

  34. The real fada of coruption dat tru nd is u obj.

  36. He think Buhari is easy to be controled

  37. But sincerely speaking OBJ is not a good man

  38. The grandpa has spoken, let all true children turn after their father.QED.

  39. But we neva experience hardship during Obasanjo’s tenure, so he remains d best in terms of oga on top

  40. ALL THE ORGANS OF NIG GOVERNMENT ARE SAME. AWON OMO OLEE,OYINOCHI, BARAWOO KOWE

  41. SALUSI, OKONJO, HAS TOLD NIGERIANS THIS B4, BUT WE KEEP VOTING THESE SAME PPLE. O MASE OO

  42. Who brought anti graft agencies on board.OBASANJO he should be praise for this corruption fighting effort.

  43. God take control of Nigeria in Jesus name.

  44. At least, he has repented. What is wrong about that?

  45. You guys are cowards, so you guys know this and he still walks the street a free man?. Politicians are dsame, they run for same purpose, which is money and not the interest of the masses.

  46. Our leaders both present and past need 2 b crucified 4 starving d nation.

  47. But some time speak truthfully.

  48. This country the problem are leader but the land is productive stealing, and bribing is the major problem the poor don have say this country is under cause by our leader

  49. Are they just telling us? Ask EFCC to pick him up

  50. So,let us support Buhari to get rid of the menace.

  51. Buhari is scared of all d past Presidents.

  52. IT IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT, OBSANJO IS THE PROGENITOR OF FALSEHHOOD AND CORRUPTION IN NIGERIA POLITICS AND OTHERS ARE PROGENIES.

  53. NIGERIANS are ready 2 uproot corruption from our system,d ancestors of corruption n d decendants must be uprooted!

  54. yes grandfather of corruption in Nigeria is obasajo

  55. If after the revelation of Hon Jibrin about #40b budget padding, procurement of exortive cars in our recession, jumbo pay and allowances and a person like Obasanjo comments and reps are talking rubbish, I am sorry, the nation is heading for doom

  56. That’s capital truth,he suppose to be arrested before now,if he is serious about corruption.

  57. But when he was supporting Buhari he was the political father in Nigeria.

  58. If pdpigs biafraud criminals of pipelines destruction party can fill in badluck jonathan as their presidential candidate to contest against BABA Almajiri Aboki PMB come 2019, clueless Badluck jonathan will receive the worst defeat that Nigeria has NEVER witness since independence.

  63. What has that to do with the fact that the present assembly is corrupt? Saying that OBJ is the grand father of corruption is no denial. Come out and tell us whether you are corrupt or not.

  64. I don’ t want to join issues with anybody as far as i am concern but all I know is that PMB can never go back to Aso Rock after this tenure so why wasting time talking nonsense? Ai ga fili ga doki ko?

  74. Obasanjo is a big fool,he showed us last time that he is no more in pdp,bcos he tired his membership card,and today he said he didn’t tire d card,today a founder of corruption is accusing his colleague that they are corrupt,instead of him to join pmb in other to work harder, is there blaming pmb,God pls have mercy on Nigeria masses.
