Ribadu May Serve On AU Board On Corruption

Chairman of Nigeria’s anti-graft Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nuhu Ribadu, has been nominated as the country’s candidate for election into the African Union’s Advisory Board on Corruption.

The nomination was conveyed to Ribadu in a letter sent to him by the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General, Michael Aondoaaka, following a request for nomination by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

”I have been directed to inform you that the African Union Convention on the Prevention and Combating Corruption, which was adopted in Maputo, Mozambique, in July 2003 entered into force on August 5, 2006.

”The African Union Commission will therefore be conducting election of the members of the Advisory Board on Corruption during the 12th session of the executive council, scheduled for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in January 2008.

”I am to inform you that in recognition of your untiring efforts and contributions to the anti-corruption war in the country, the Hon. Attorney-General of the Federation intends to nominate you as Nigeria’s candidate for membership of the Advisory Board,” the letter said.

  1. GOD bless you more, Nuhu.
    You see, you are already reaping some of the rewards of your VERY GOOD work here on earth. Even, one of your adversaries (-The AGF)
    WAS MADE to confer you a great honour!
    You aren’t seen nothing yet!

  2. AGF wants Nuhu out so that he would have a field day. Nuhu, Nigeria needs you. Please stay. With the current AGF, we will lose the war on corruption when you are gone. This man have uterior motive for nominating you. Nigerians join me to say to the AGF – thanks, but no thanks.

  3. What does this mean? Could this be a kind of set up? Nuhu, please read between the lines. AGF may mean well, but he has already put himself on the wrong side (irrespective of the rationale – this is my opinion). My advice: some gifts come with strings attached, if Nuhu turns this one down, it will not diminish his reputation. Does anyone share my opinion?

  4. Nuhu,
    Hope this is not your valedictory posting.
    I know some crooks are calling for champagne already.
    I wish you the best.

    Nuhu, my dear do not,i mean do not listen to that crook of AGF, you know he is sick allow him to die his own way.We need you in Nigeria now than any other place on earth.Let him go to hell with his nomination.
