Photonews: Nigerian Troop Ready To Battle Islamic Jihadists In Damaturu, Northern Nigeria

News Release: Niger Delta Youth Empowerment Front (NDYEF) Says Alleged $620,000 Bribe Is Diversionary.

Farouk Lawan
Even as the alleged $3miilion bribery involving Mr. Femi Otedola, and Hon. Farouk Lawan, member of the House of Representatives continue to generate mixed reactions from the public, Nigerians should also know that the country is heading toward doom.

A country like Nigeria, where the rich are getting richer, and the poor are getting poorer, coupled with wanton unemployment, youth restiveness, incessant cases of crimes, insecurity, a revolution is inevitable.

Nigerians should know that oil marketer Mr. Femi Otedola, and Hon. Faruok Lawan only acted a script deliberately written by Otedola, which is not different from every other movie or drama.

Though, Mr. Otedola had severally admitted he gave bribe to Lawan, but we strongly disagree with Mr. Otedola.

Such can not be bribe, rather a Free Will Gift willingly offered by Mr. Otedola to Hon. Faruok, because bribes are not given in that way in Nigeria, we are in Nigeria, we should not be deceived.

And again, whether Nigerians likes it or not, Lawan is the hero here. His committee did a very good job, and submitted a wonderful report on the subsidy probe, therefore, Mr. Otedola who had said his company was never involved in the controversial subsidy, and still went ahead to offer money to Lawan for any reason whatsoever, the truth is that Mr. Otedola acted wrongly.

The Police and SSS has nothing to investigate because both also participated in acting the script written by Mr. Otedola that has brought shame and disgrace to the present administration of President Goodluck Jonathan and indeed the Country.

We urge the Leadership of House of Representatives and members of the House not to give any coloration and prominence to Mr. Otedola and Hon Lawan alleged bribery scandal, it is a deliberate plot by Mr. Otedola to undermine and distract the House.

The so called Integrity group in the House should suspend any plan whatsoever, and focus on issues that will benefit Nigerians and their respective constituencies.
