It is quite interesting to see the new crop of actors that the Nigerian movie industry is producing and the caliber of personality involved in the production of new quality movies. When members of the legislature chose to take the oil subsidy probe to the television for live broadcast, little did they know that movies most often come in parts. The probe itself was the first part of the movie.
For one of the highest profile Nigerians to accuse members of the legislature to be thieves is indicative of the fact that there must be some substance in the accusation and not mere “blowing breeze.”
One cannot now say if Hon. Tambuwal was invited or he requested audience; either way, he got audience with the statesman and was given the privilege of a “view” of the movie or ever since, “things have not remained the same.”
GOD knows what atrocities these people have been perpetrating in the name of the law and how much they have made from business people and government office holders alike while threatening them with a public show of their indiscretions. One wonders if it is about the high yield of profit involved that would attract such high profile industrialists to go into video production. Without stressing one’s mind too much the simple answer would be the need to have necessary documentation to prove what has been continually denied.
Mr. Herman Hembe knew he had compromised his authority and went ahead to chair a panel that set out to probe Ms. Arunma Oteh. When she laid her cards on the table for all to see, the “table turned.” Now Mr. Hembe is accusing Ms. Oteh of using her position in the EFCC to “witch-hunt” him. If she had not been confident enough – maybe due to the quality of backing she has – to expose Mr. Hembe, she would have quietly gone down in history as another corrupt woman in the Nigerian economic environment.
Others in similar position watched and probably realized the need to have evidence – proof of what transpires between them and members of the legislature.
The Hon. Farouk Lawan led panel probing the fuel subsidy had done a good job of almost exposing the face of the people behind the mask; too bad, the leader compromised and became an actor in a movie produced without his knowledge.
Many others are watching and this is a good sign for Nigeria and the people of Nigeria; it is victory for democracy because in the military era, no one dared this kind of stuff. Such a producer would simply “disappear forever.”
We still expect a lot more from this oil subsidy probe movie production.
