Nigerian Leaders Are Hopeless Thieves – Governor Umahi

David Umahi, the chairman of South-East Governors’ Forum and governor of Ebonyi State, has lamented that no amount of pressure by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, can stop Nigerian leaders from stealing.

Umahi made the lamentation on Monday, August 3, 2020, while addressing journalists at the new Governor’s Lodge, Government House Abakaliki, shortly after a virtual meeting with other governors of the zone and Igbo leaders.

According to him, “People don’t fear God anymore in this country. It’s not about EFCC, ICPC, and whatever thing. If we know that we are temporal on this earth and that when you sleep, you are at war with death – it’s only the good Lord that wakes up the winner, and then we have to begin to change our minds and begin to change our thoughts.

“There is no amount of EFCC, ICPC that will stop a leader from stealing. It is only God and conscience that will. When you get older as a leader, what do you want to see in a part that you have played before? What do you want to see?

“What do you want your children to be known for? How do you want people to respect your children? Respect them that you stole all the money or that you built all the mansions?

“We should know that all these wealth is nothing. It must pass from one hand to another. The leaders of this country want to steal, so that their generation will not see poverty but it’s not true.

“Little sickness can take over the whole lots of that stealing. I am pleading with Nigerian youths to have a rethink; let them do self re-evaluation. A peanut can be given to them to destroy another person. How have they fared in the past two, three, four or five years? It doesn’t work.

“One thing I have told the people of Ebonyi is that, I will not share the money that is meant for developing the state to stakeholders. I will not share it, no matter whatever anyone can think, do or say.”
