In Nigeria corruption has no tribe nor state of origin, It is a true nationalist. To refresh our
memory we have compiled the list of ex-governors who are facing charges of massive
corruption and looting of their state treasury. Some of them, if not all are now richer than the
state they governed for 8 years, while citizens whom the billions of naira belong to, continue to
wallow in total penury. Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) needs to beam
more searchlights becuase these few out of 36 is not a good job, afterall no more immunity.
