Why Chigbue's backside still awaits the bootstamp

Saharareporters has unearthed the main reason why Mrs. Irene Chigbue retained her job at the BPE, at least in the meantime.

Following widespread condemnation of her handling of the sale of the Port Harcourt and Kaduna refineries under shady circumstances, Mrs. Irene Chigbue was penciled for removal by Umar Yar’adua in order to give the BPE a new leadership.

However, Chief James Ibori’s former commissioner for finance was nominated to replace her, everything was set for the announcement until it was discovered at the eleventh hour that David Edevbie was under investigation by the Metropolitan Police in London for money laundering.

The former finance commissioner of Delta State was fingered in the ongoing investigations of Chief James Onafefe Ibori, the former governor of Delta State whose worldwide assets have been frozen by the Southwark Crown Court in London, on the prompting of the Metropolitan Police.

Sources told Saharareporters that James Ibori had calculated on acquiring public assets with monies looted from the Delta State treasury, if David Edevbie had made the appointment as the Director General of the BPE.

But please, someone do tell, what's all this stuff with Ibori appointees? Who is actually running the Nigerian presidency, Yar'Adua or Ibori for God's sake?

So, basically, Ms. Chigbue is keeping her job because Mr. Edevbie is accused of more egregious crimes? Yikes. I can't help but think that Nigeria could be the jewel of Africa if it weren't for "leaders" who just want to plunder it.

Exactly! As Jordan said, so we shall leave a thief to continue operation because you do not want to put a bigger thief in office? Abi bawo? Chigbue is ex-Governor Ibori's nominee to that office, must we then replace her with another Ibori nominated thief? i tire for this UMYA o!

KK, UMYA is just telling us with style that nothing has changed. It is still business as usual, the man is just pretending so that we will leave him to continue in office and think he is a good man. Bet me, he is going to be worse than Obasanjo.
