ANOTHER LETTER TO YARDY

Thursday, March 13, 2008

Dear Yardy:

How are you? I hope that all is well. What with the Election Tribunal's decision in your favor, a weight of burden must have been removed from your neck. I am sure that if you could, you would have drank some champagne in celebration. Don't worry. Your non-Muslim friends did that for you.

I am sure that you will take this good news as a new start. A chance to reinvent yourself and your administration, and reintroduce your vision for a great Nigeria. In fact, it is clear that you are becoming a different person in the aftermath of the decision. Imagine my surprise when I heard you talk about the 'Rule of Law' recently, but this time, in a little more detail. It was incredible. I thought for a split second that you read my blog and all the appeals I made. I thank you for taking the time to reinforce your ideas.

I especially liked the suggestion that ordinary citizens must live by established rules and regulations and that once we all do that, corruption will become controllable. But, do you really mean it when you say that you are committed to supporting the EFCC? I mean, the changes that happened, plus the exuberant battle between Aondoakaa and the EFCC, which Aondoakaa seemingly won, put in doubt your commitment to the Commission. Well, you say your administration will fund the Commission so it can continue to deal with corruption, so I will take you at your word and congratulate you once the agency receives adequate funding. Will the EFCC and ICPC be combined as Aondoakaa has promised? I read that they have retrieved N600 billion in stolen funds. If that is not a case for their continued and independent, though more efficient, existence, I am not sure what is.

I eagerly await your correspondence.

Sincerely,
SolomonSydelle

PS: Oh, and please, I am trying to find details on your Vision 2020 plan. I am desperate for information but am not finding what I need. Will you, or a friend, talk about that sometime soon?

N600 billion would go a long way in dealing with some of those NEPA problems you brought up a while ago. With oil prices topping $110 this week, I also wondered whatever happened to that Excess Crude Proceeds Accounts that was set up in 2004 to deal with excess oil revenues. We're most certainly not short on money, we (the people) just never get to see where it goes.

Thanks for daring to ask Yardy though!

"Will the EFCC and ICPC be combined as Aondoakaa has promised?"
...i think not, rather, 'tis the thots (translated into speech) of a man without depth and must be heard.

No apologies, i simply like not the man rightly (or not) called "I don't care" by a thisday columnist.
