If Obazee Goes, Babachir Must Go – Reno Omokri

Former Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on New Media, Reno Omokri, has wondered why President Muhammadu Buhari sacked the Executive Secretary of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria, FRCN, Mr. Jim Obazee and has refused to sack the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal.

Buhari had sacked Obazee, barely two days after Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God stepped down as the General Overseer of RCCG Nigeria based on a law by the FRC.

But Omokri has frowned at Buhari’s ‘quick move’ to terminating Obazee’s appointment, still awaiting result of investigation before firing Babachir, who was alleged to have diverted money meant to fight humanitarian crisis in the North East.

Omokri wrote on his Facebook page: “How come President Buhari can investigate and fire Obaze of the FRC very quickly yet he is still awaiting ‘further investigation’ before firing Babachir?

“The way the President drags his foot when those around him are accused of corruption puts a question mark on his anti-corruption crusade.

“What about the investigation of the Supreme Court Justice visiting Rotimi Amaechi, the grass cutting SGF and the budget padding civil servants?

“The same day it was revealed that Ghanaian President Akufo-Addo’s speech was plagiarized is the same day he fired the man who wrote it.

“In President Buhari’s own case of stealing Obama’s speech it took 2 weeks before he ‘redeployed’ (not sack) the director involved.

“The President’s double standards is now so obvious.

“To show the value Nigeria places on human life, we sacked Obazee for embarrassing government over the Adeboye resignation but sacked no one for Southern Kaduna killings.

“We acquitted the suspected murderers of the beheaded Christian evangelist, Bridget Agbahime, but are diligently prosecuting Joe Chinakwe, who named his dog after his hero, President Buhari.

“We wait for public outcry before belatedly sending troops to help victims of foreign Fulani herdsmen but send out troops to catch and display alleged cattle rustlers on TV.

“What has happened to our humanity over the past 18 months.

“What have we used our hands to do to ourselves?” he wondered.
