The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), will today, arraign former Minister of Interior, Abba Moro before Justice Chikere of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

  1. A recent Corruption Risk Assessment conducted by the Technical Unit on Governance and Anti _Corruption and the ICPC in the MDG Sector in Nigeria in its report found that many times there is no consequence for the individuals found complicit of wrong doing. The un published report said that . effectively the perception is that there is rarely any sanction for wrong doing, except the culprit is not powerful and connected. As a whole this rings true of many, if not all other sectors other than the MDG sector. It was so astonishing that MORO escaped prosecution until now. Flagrant disobedience of rules and laws without consequence has become a common phenomenon. As much as anyone may criticize Buhari’s EFCC centric anti-corruption agenda, as much as we may point out that it does not appear evenhanded, broad enough and strong in such other strategies as prevention and education. One thing can be said for it. It is slowly but steadily making the point that there is consequence for impunity by those who have been in power. How be it that it is yet to prove that consequence exists for those who are favored or currently in office
