As part of the methods adopted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in a bid to eradicate corruption from our dear nation Nigeria, all of our leaders are being investigated. The Jonathan administration has been termed as one with so many faults and most political leaders who have been found guilty of fraud have all been traced to that administration.
One of those who served under this administration was Okonjo-Iweala as the Finance Minister. The Transition Committee Chairman, Ahmed Joda, has the opinion that the former Finance Minister is squeaky clean and he is even surprised by the fact that she did not resign her position during the administration as the corruption that was ongoing at the time was very glaring.
Joda said she was tactful in all she did such that not even the EFCC could trace any form of fraud to her. He said, “Okonjo-Iweala is a professional and she guarded herself, if you look at what she did. Whenever, they said this happened she was able to produce papers to say, ‘look oh!’ We had a meeting, presided over by the President and attended by the National Security Adviser and others. And we agreed.
“And she would go back and write the President and say, ‘I have received a request to release so many billions in accordance with our minutes. Your Excellency, if you will approve.’ And His Excellency would approve it. So, she covered herself, thus you can’t pin anything on her.”
Apart from this, Joda also said he is surprised that the economic recession is not worse than what it is at the moment. He describes Nigeria as a “the country which consumes without producing.”
He furthermore said, “We were pretending, given our character as a consumer country, even the oil and gas we are not producing; if we are to tell ourselves the truth. We have four refineries. We can’t refine; we are importing. We don’t have enough facilities to import the quantity of fuel that we require. We are badly managing our affairs, we are destroying our economy.
“I’m not surprised that we are in this situation. I’m only surprised that we are not even worse.”
He explained that the current economic situations in Nigeria cannot exactly be blamed on any administration present or past. He said it can only be blamed on our inactivity as he said we have failed to do what we ought to as a nation.
