There are indications that many Nigerians who have been neck-deep in corruption, either in the government or in other aspects of private and public businesses are praying that the Presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari should not win the March 28 election and are planning to jet out of the country into exile in case he wins.
Information reaching us indicated that the corrupt Nigerians, especially those in the corridors of power, known as cabals have already began to flee with their loots to other parts of the world to avoid falling into the trap of General Buhari’s anti-corruption stand if he emerges President.
It would be recalled that one of the PDP national leaders, Chief Bode George recently made it public that he would flee Nigeria if General Buhari wins the Presidential election. His confession was seen as just one out of the many cases of suspected corrupt Nigerians’ plan to flee the country, and have been stashing their ‘loot’ overseas as the nation counts down to a likely Buhari/Osinbajo Presidency.
Reports from Dubai indicate that it is overflowing with Nigerian cabals’ investors who have lately been buying up property in a mad frenzy as they hurriedly move their wealth abroad anticipating the May 29th handover.
The fall of the Naira on the forex market has for a large part been attributed not only to the tanked oil prices but to the excessive demand of the Dollar by those filthy rich cabals that are actively laundering their money overseas.
Many known and secret businessmen who have enjoyed unlimited direct access to Nigeria’s oil earnings at all levels of the marketing process are said to be seeking dual citizenship in neighboring countries like Chad, Ghana and Cotonou as well as further across Africa to places like Ivory Coast, English speaking Gabon, Namibia, Kenya and South Africa.
It was gathered that other Nigerians desperate to move out before the likely coming of Buhari/Osinbajo anti-corruption regime are said to be buying permanent residences in Dubai, the United Kingdom and America.
The Caribbean Islands too are not left out as Islands like St Kitts, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago like have reported an influx of Nigerians with Dollars seeking for asylum.
Current government officials that have appeared to be prominently in the picture are the miniister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke aka oil godess, former minister of state for defence, Musliu Obanikoro and Ekiti governor, Ayo Fayose and others. They are said to be desperate for a fight to finish and to scatter the transition process as defeat becomes most imminent.
Apart from top government and ministries’ officials that are alleged to have been deep in corruption, others in the business world, armed forces, traditional institution are said to be working sleeplessly, contacting all and sundry to see to it that General Buhari does not come to power, either by hook or crook.
