Past Presidents

The Senate is making plans to probe the management of funds allocated to the power sector under the regimes of former presidents, Jonathan, Yar’Adua and Obasanjo.

For this purpose, the senate has set up a 13-member ad-hoc committee to conduct the investigation, Premium Times reports.

The report further states:

The committee, led by Abubakar Kyari, has a two-week mandate to conduct its investigations and submit its report to the Senate.

    will anybody go to prison at the end of the day? cause I dont picture someone like obasanjo in prison at all.

    pls dont give us unnecessary high hopes. if at the end of the day nobody goes to prison pls lets forget about it instead of wasting valuable time.

    Thank you Senate for having the guts to say this. Leave Buhari the OBJ a*s licker who can only fight Jonathan the youngest.

    This is why we rejected the stooge Lawan almost imposed by Tinubu and supported Saraki and Ekweremmadu.

    OBJ,IBB,ATIKU,ABDULSALAM, and all past leaders before JONATHAN are sacred cows. If Nnamdi Azikiwe was alive he would have skipped others and reverse straight to probe him. Suddenly Buhari and his crook said Obasanjo like yesterday is in the past???

    Who does not know Buhari and his lopsidedness?? Please senate probe that talking drum of Owu!!! and his 16 billion power saga as well as Bola Iges death. Don’t forget Operation feed the nation that is now Obasanjo farm.

    OBJ used to be one detrabalised Nigerian until he met with APC. I still prefare him to Buhari the pretender.

    I lost confidence once I saw the word ‘committee’. I know only one person cannot probe but we’ve seen plenty of ‘commitee-ing’ from previous tenures and nothing else after. I’m tired of all these people sef.
