The Court of Appeal Kebbi Division has upturned the judgment of a Kebbi State High Court which discharged and acquitted Mohammed Arzika Dakingari, Accountant General of Kebbi State on charges of conspiracy and obtaining by false pretense preferred against him and one other by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

He, among other things, allegedly used his office as the Accountant-General of Kebbi State for personal enrichment to the tune of N1.6 billion.

Dakingari was charged alongside Musa Yusuf, Managing Director, Beal Construction Nigeria Limited; a company owned by Dakingari and used in awarding various contracts to himself. He is to spend 70 years in prison.

Greed doesn't pay....  see where dis man landed himself..   this should be the other way of sentencing a man, life imprisonment...     70 years added to dis man's present age, is not LIFER??  If only all these rogues in government embezzling the nation's treasure would be brought to justice like this, Nigeria would have been a better place for her subjects....  bollocks..   
A woman told me the other day that No sound on earth is louder than the cover of the pot dropping on the floor as you try to steal meat...  I think she's right though.     ...Based-on-Statistics

Now we are getting closer to the promise land .Until there’s deterrent, A very stringent deterrent that will make an embezzler think twice or panic when tampering with state money .If this sentencing is upheld it will set a standard for a new code of conduct .A zero tolerance for corruption must be enshrined and enforce without bias or witch hunting but justice for all as it seems necessary
