$15m: Stop witch hunting and persecuting Patience Jonathan- Ijaw Youth Council tells EFCC

The Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide (IYC) have accused the EFCC of witch hunting and persecuting ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and his family.

‎President of IYC, Udengs Eradiri said this in Yenagoa, while reacting to the $15 million seized from the accounts of former first lady, Patience Jonathan. Eradiri says before Patience Jonathan is questioned about her wealth, past first ladies should also be questioned about their sources of wealth.


“First Ladies in Nigeria do not do any work. You know what it is; a woman naturally attracts a lot of gifts from men, let alone the First Lady who has the power to recommend people for something. They receive a lot of ‘Thank you’ and gratification because in most cases they recommend people. Those they recommended usually come back and say thank you ma. Even when they do not recommend, people can go and say thank you with a million dollars. The scenario did not start with Dame Patience Jonathan. We know how influential the former First Lady before her was and other first ladies – how powerful, how rich, how wealthy they were as a result of gratification because they were Presidents’ wives. That is how they amass their wealth. If you say Patience Jonathan should go and show how she made her money, then, you must first start with all the other former First Ladies before her, otherwise it is a witch-hunt. Patience Jonathan got her wealth from thank you and there is nowhere in the law that says we should not receive thank you. So, EFCC should stop this nonsense. If you have issues, go and follow the due process and don’t begin to use the media to tarnish the image of the former first family. ‎ Jonathan should be respected in Nigeria. You heard what happened during the time of late President Yar’Adua, Jonathan did not witch-hunt that family irrespective of the humiliation he suffered despite the position of the law. This is a witch-hunt and the EFCC must stop this attitude because very soon, people will begin to resist them. Nigerians will get to the point where they will no longer accept it.‎ We support the fight against corruption. All of us know that corruption has eaten deep into our fabric, but this selective fight especially geared towards the region must not be allowed. It is in this country that they talked about Abacha’s loot, yet a university had been approved for Abacha’s wife. In this same country where they said Abacha was corrupt. So, why are you treating one former first family differently and then everybody wants to humiliate Jonathan’s family in the best of their ability. The former First Lady, Patience, has no question to answer.. The EFCC is destroying Buhari’s anti-graft policy because when your anti-graft is beginning to show it is one-sided, it will lose credibility” he said‎ .

Am in team with Ijaw youth on this.... They should start with abacha's wife... Then down to late Stella Obasanjo's account.. Down to turai yaradua before Dame Jonathan.... They saw money in her account, did they trace any looted money to the account,? Why questioning her how she get her money, is that their business.? Efcc is in the business of witch hunting which is rubbish.... Well I dnt really care, they can jail her if they wish, is non of my business, afterall they no share the money reach me....

When their people are committing acts of misdemeanour
they don't warn. When they are asked questions by the law and order authorities they start their warning.

President Buhari pls leave Mama Peace alone, I wont take your fight for corruption serious until you bring every corrupt politician to book, esp Rotimi Ameachi

Let us not condone impunity in any form. It was Mrs Jonathan that exposed herself by writing officially to EFCC to claim the monies in the frozen accounts. Additionally, if she was not up to any mischief, why would she incorporate four companies under other people's name whilst being the sole signatories? The monies were not made legitimately and neither were they "cash gift" from benefactors according to IYC. Meanwhile, approaching any Government Official or a member of his/her family for recommendation for a contract negates the principle of fairness & equity in public procurement and indeed is an act of corruption. Let us be wise in our speech and actions. If you feel PMB is clearing the rot of the GEJ & Family/Friends, by 2019, another President will clear the rot in PMB & Family/Friends. It is not our fault that GEJ did not clear the rot in OBJ & Family/Friends or was it because of party affiliations? Pls think about it. Nigeria is for all of us. Since 1983 nobody Govt has fought corruption the way PMB is doing and we need to support by changing our corrupt ways/actions.

This idiot just accused Mrs Jonathan of receiving kickbacks, and yes that is a crime

Only stupid and myopic people like freeborn and his league will call this which hunt. Its alarming that people just talk without reasoning. You are defending someone that has looted the country and even your region dry. Very sentimental idiots. That why your region can never develop. You all have been brain washed. Please EFCC do your job, if she is found wanting let her face the music. It is because of this kind of greed that people like freeborn could not get a good education.If not, he wont dish out English language the way he does. Myopic sentimental homo habilis.
