In Nigeria today, you can spend as much money as you like if you are close to the President. How sad!

The Presidency said that it will not probe the allegations of misappropriation of public funds levelled against the Minister of Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, who is an in-law President Goodluck Jonathan.

The president's aide on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe, said the Government would not set up a probe panel to look into the minister financial reckless because the House of Reps is currently probing her.
“The Federal Government cannot set up a probe panel just on things that have not been substantiated as such. The information I have is that the House of Representatives is looking into the matter and they want to invite the honourable minister. Definitely, the right thing is to wait for the outcome of such an interaction before anybody can decide to do anything.”
But when Stella Oduah's BMW scandal broke, the same Presidency set up a three-man committee to probe her on the armoured car fraud while National Assembly was investigating her. So, what is now different?

You may wish to know that Alison-Madueke lavished as much as N10bn on a chartered Challenger aircraft in two years, in a country where the minimum wage is just N18,000 and government revenue is declining.

Anyway, sources say members of the House of Reps committee that should probe the ministers are under some form of pressure from above because she is President Jonathan's in-law. And this is why even the probe by House is yet to start.

In his reaction: National Coordinator of Committee for Democracy and Rights of the People, Alhaji Amitolu Shittu, said President Jonathan should simply resign if he can not rule Nigeria without sentiments.

“Why should Allison-Madueke not be probed? Is it because she is helping the President to stash away money for his coming re-election? This is why the letter written by former President Olusegun Obasanjo should be revisited,” Shittu said.

Jona Jona, av always liked dat guy, he suspects sanusi, he suspends him, bt his inlaw, nah, she (allyson) is to be invited 4 a chat, dt was how asari dokubo was also invited 4 a tea chat, even after threatening to rambo-style us in nigeria if his uncle (jona) is nt elected come 2015(i actualy remembered myself wondering if we still practiced democracy in this country) nigeria, even with his  international record and recognition as an olympic medalist in money vending, alams stl got pardonned, y? Bcos hes close to the president! I guess everybdy close to the president cn do whatsoever he wants with, and in the country, then he/she gets invited for a chat, gets a pat in the back, then released to go continue from whr they stopped! WHEN ARE WE GOING TO BE FREE FROM THIS DEMOCRATIC TYRANNY IN NIGERIA???

Both the Senate and the House of Reps. are a bunch of jokers and dramatists.Instead of all these nonsense probes that never come to anything,I think what the Senate and House of Reps should do if they are serious is to pass a law that will prohibit all government officials except the President,Vice President,Senate President and the Speaker from the use of Private Jets with public funds. Only the President,Vice President,Senate President and the Speaker should be allowed to use public fund to fly private Jets.That way all these state governors and ministers that are the worst culprits in the private jets saga will be checkmated and public fund will be saved.
