Former Adamawa State Governor, Murtala Nyako, has described the action of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC], which declared him wanted for graft on Wednesday, as the last kicks of a dying horse. Also wanted by the commission is the governor’s son, Abdul Aziz, according to the story reported by Premium Times. Nyako’s media assistant, Ahmed Sajoh, told the online newspaper that the Jonathan administration is intimidated that despite leaving office, the former governor continues to enjoy support from the people.
“I am not aware of being declared wanted. But that is good,” Nyako said.
“If you are wanted by a rouge system, it means you are a good person. Has this government gone after anybody that is bad? They only run after the good people and allow the bad people to roam around them, live happily and enjoy whatever bad things they are doing.”
Nyako stated that he is not surprised at the action of the EFCC; that many more Nigerians will be declared wanted by the government. The government, Nyako said, is being intimidated by the mammoth crowd that turned out for the All Progressives Congress, APC, rally in Yola, the Adamawa State capital.
He said President Goodluck Jonathan would soon be kicked out of office, and that “When the time comes for them to be declared wanted nobody will sympathise with them.”
