CACOL Flays Jonathan,PDP As Bode George , Others Vie for Party’s BoT Chair

The Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders(CACOL) has condemned President Goodluck Jonathan and the () for associating with corruption and corrupt .

Reacting the news of an ex-convict, Chief Olabode George vying party’s Board of Trustee Chairman and other candidates with questionable pedigree, the Executive Chairman of CACOL, Debo Adeniran derided the President and his party for glorifying and romancing corruption with such impunity and without recourse morality.

“It is sickening that the President, who should show better example masses follow, could glorify corruption with such impunity. Jonathan could not have been serious with his fight against corruption. He is just paying lip service it. He is supposed shame and despise corrupt leaders, but he is giving presidential recognition to them.

Imagine the President appointing Chief Tony Anenih, whose achievement as Minister of Works and Housing, was diverting billions of dollars meant for building and rehabilitating our roads into his private coffers, as the Chairman of the Nigerian Ports Authority, and the same Anenih is also vying Board of Trustee Chairman. It is very shameful that our President’s list of associates is replete with criminals. This same President Jonathan was showering praises former Governor of Bayelsa State cum ex-convict, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, as his political benefactor sometime ago.

The President and his political party are so barefaced and really do not give a damn about what the think about their actions. It is so saddening that a president that claims to be fighting corruption is dining and wining with ex-convicts. The signal the President with his political party is sending to the Nigerian citizenry is that, conviction is no longer a stigma in this part of the world since they (convicts) be celebrated and even compensated with political appointments as soon as they come out of jail,”he said.
