Open Letter: Mr. President; Professor Mvendaga Jibo Cannot Be Minister

President Jonathan

Dear Mr President,

Congratulations on your election to the highest office in the land. It is an honor very well deserved.

Forwarded herewith Mr. President, is the resolution from all the members of the Governing Council of the University of Benin in September 2009, to your predecessor through Dr. Sam Egwu, the then Minister of Education, demanding the removal of Prof. M. Jibo, as Pro-chancellor and Chairman for serious acts of misconduct. He was accordingly removed. Click Here To View Resolution

There are very strong rumors that this man is high in your ministerial list and may even be assigned to the Ministry of Education:- the Nation newspaper of 20th May 2011.The allegations against Prof. Jibo are so grievous and mark him out as a most unruly, dishonest and fraudulent person, whose character will seriously dent the image and integrity of your administration if selected.

I love you too much Mr. President and would not want you or your administration to be embarrassed. I am also well informed of his nefarious conduct in his past stations, such as New Nigerian newspapers, University of Jos, Benue State University, but to name a few. I also know that he has in the past been involved in political thuggery.

For and behalf of the staff of the Federal Ministry of Education, and the Federal Civil Service, and for the greater good of Nigeria, please take a closer look at this character.

Thank you.
