The show of shame by David Cameron, as nose-led by the morally bankrupt Barack Obama, in strengthening islamist terror group, Boko Haram, and propping up its candidate in the last presidential polls in Nigeria, remain a sore thumb in the records of the conservative party and the United Kingdom as a country.
Observers would have thought that that was the lowest a party and its prime minister could drag the once respected country to in sourcing for campaign funds from strange sources, but it’s a mistaken view.
The descent of the UK government into the fray of the ethno-religious war in Nigeria leaves many in shock.
Corruption is a scourge that has dragged Nigeria down over the decades and its elimination, the dream of majority of its citizen.
Over the years, from the start of looting public treasury in billions of dollars by successive military governments beginning from the one led by the coupist, General Muhammadu Buhari in the 1980s, through the barbaric plundering by General Sani Abacha to the later day brazen thievery by the President Olusegun Obasanjo-led democratic regime, the UK government has consistently, and shamelessly so, aided, shielded and abetted the undermining of the developmental process through earth-shaking pillaging of public funds.
It’s therefore pedestrian of David Cameron to attempt to cover up his agenda to undermine the Niger Delta and other sections of Nigeria that question the brutish and sordidly corrupt regime of Muhammadu Buhari, by undermining their leaders under the childish acclaim of helping Nigeria fight corruption.
It’s instructive to inform that any country that is sincere about helping in the war on corruption by the Nigerian people has the means to outrightly prevent the movement of proceeds of corruption to and within their jurisdiction.
Nigerians are inquisitive about how terrorist and terrorists sponsors where able to move funds, reportedly, through the Central Bank of Nigeria when it was led by the man who has become Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, that ended in procuring American-made and British-made weapons for Boko Haram. How did these funds go unnoticed by the government of David Cameron? Central Bank is hooked up to the global banking network. Why were those funds not flagged by the UK government?
Flowing from the above, it’s clear that the treatment of James Ibori, Diepreye Alamayeisigha, and the latest victim of this political induced drive, Mrs. Dieziani Alison-Madueke.
The actions of the British Police against Alison-Madueke is not motivated by any anti-corruption thrust, but a dastardly agenda to undermine the Niger Delta for exploitation by British oil concern under the unquestioned misrule of an incompetent, senile, sordidly corrupt, and blindly bigotted Muhammadu Buhari.
It’s the hope of all well meaning people of the world that David Cameron take the path of rectitude before the people of the Niger Delta are forced to respond to this global witchhunt.
