Your Excellency Sir,

Re: How Religious, Political Leaders Stall Fight Against Corruption

Sir, at the Nigerian Economic Summit plenary on corruption and rule of law earlier in the week, you claimed that political and religious leaders always beg you whenever you  want to sack a public officer ‘guilty’ of corruption.

This is a serious issue.

Once pronounced guilty by a court of competent jurisdiction, doesn’t sack come automatically? Are you confessing to been complicit in entrenching and deodorising corrupt elements?
Anyway, that’s beside the point and I shall be very brief and concise.

Sir, sometime in the month of May 2017, Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi was to be investigated by the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-corruption Commission for alleged misappropriation of N6 billion of the Kano Emirate Council, your name popped out of a national newspaper that you, alongside other notable APC leaders begged Governor Ganduje and the Kano State House of Assembly to halt the aforementioned probe.

Sir, you are a religious leader and the Vice President of Nigeria, how come your name was mentioned by Ganduje?

Were you therefore referring to yourself sir?

Why will a religious leader quash a probe involving N6 billion and come out to accuse others of the same offence?

I would end my lines here.

Yours faithfully,
Ettu Mohammed
