ETTEH: SPEAKER, NO LONGER ....

Monday, October 29, 2007

My last post began with the allegation that Etteh had resigned and ended with the clarification that she had only agreed to resign.

I am glad to state unequivocally that the woman has FINALLY RESIGNED!!!!!!

An acting speaker has been elected, so it appears that the probe into the contract scam will finally get underway.

Etteh's resignation, and that of her Deputy, was an attempt to avoid impeachment. As of yesterday, Monday, 214 signatures were obtained and less than 8 more were needed to have her impeached.

I am a little underwhelmed by all the unnecessary dramatics involving this woman. I can only say that I hope that the House will look into the issues and facts surrounding the scandal with "immediate alacrity and effect".

Meanwhile, Yar'Adua will undergo a health checkup in Germany this week. He is there for a conference called European Partnership with Africa Summit. I wonder if he will FINALLY make a public statement on the Ettehgate scandal. Judging from his "sof'ly, sof'ly" approach to Nigerian issues, I will be surprised if the he makes more than a passing comment.

Have to agree with atutupuyoyo on this one, this whole scandal and Yar'Adua's "sof'ry sof'ry" (that's how our southern african counterparts would say it) approach only shows how low nigeria has degenerated in the enthronement of mediocrity.

But sha, we thank God for the small things, abi?

about time for her...frankly her 'toughness' was becoming irritating, but for the fear of impeachment i'm sure she'd still be seating put...as for investigations and due process, lets keep our fingers crossed that no godfather comes to the rescue.
