What Is Happening Is A Tip Of The Iceberg- Oshiomole Mocks Diezani


'Minister of information' and Edo state
government, Adams Oshiomole says the current
alleged financial crime trial of the former
Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke is just
a tip of the iceberg of what is to come. According
to him, massive financial crimes was perpetrated
in the last administration and he says he is
excited at what is currently happening to Diezani
"For me I don’t think anybody should be
surprised because the most favorable
commentator on the Nigerian condition, on
the economy, the polity and society, agree
that our economy was badly managed over
the past several years. I have not seen one
commentator that disagrees.
Even when
they talk about rebasing and so what.
Have you rebased the level of poverty? Have
you rebased prosperity? Have you rebased
unemployment? Have you rebased
homelessness? Have you rebased hunger?

So I have not seen anyone that says
Nigerian people are doing better. This was
never my issue. I was only a spokesman of
National Economic Council. But in this
country when you speak out, all the arrows
should be fashioned to attack you. But one
of the things I learnt in life at the age of 17
when I got into the leadership of labour, is
that the truth does not require supporters
club. It can stand on its feet anyday. You
can hit it. You can kick it. You can bomb it,
but you can’t destroy it. The truth is that a
lot of money was stolen and what you are
seeing is just a tip of the iceberg, because
when you imagine what accrues to Nigeria,
consistently from 140 dollars, averaging 108
dollars over a long period of time and yet
your treasury is empty. You were running a
budget deficit, you were devoting 85 percent
of your budget for four consecutive years on
recurrent, you were borrowing and you draw
the entire pensions fund. Yesterday I saw a
lot of analysis on how pension funds should
be invested on infrastructure."he said
Oshiomole went further to react to claims
tht the presidency had a hand in her arrest.
"It’s not about who has hand in what. I
think it’s about law and order. In other
climes, institutions do their work. They are
not at the beck and call of political
authority. They have their mandate and the
law specifies this and it is scrupulously
followed. I’m the happiest person because
I’ve been in government for seven years
without being in power. I was in government,
I couldn’t call a commissioner of police and
talk as a security officer, I’m haunted by all
manners of persons. You kill the snake in
Edo, they will put the snake on life support
in Abuja and they keep harassing us.
Now
all those venoms are dead and buried, for
the first time I’m excited and happy not just
for personal benefit, but for the changes I’m
beginning to see.”he said
