Nigeria may lose a princely N3.2 trillion, recently discovered as part of billions of dollars stashed away in foreign bank accounts by late military dictator, Gen. Sani Abacha. This fear is instructed by the intricate, complex hurdles set before the Federal Government team tracing the hidden funds by the countries involved. A Special Investigation Panel (SIP) headed by a retired military officer in the office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) had, about 10 months ago, launched a fresh probe into what has now become ‘Abacha loot’. Saturday Sun had, in April this year, exclusively reported that the panel had uncovered fresh hidden funds in excess of $210 billion trapped in offshore accounts, which far exceeded the already established $5 billion looted by the late military ruler. The report was confirmed last week at a ministerial briefing by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke who said the Federal Government recently confiscated the sum of £175 mill ...

Judiciary workers begin strike today Moses John | Mar 11, 2013 | 0 comments Mohammed Bello Adoke,Minister of Justice Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has directed all its members in federal courts across Nigeria to stay at home from today following the Federal Government’s failure to issue a circular for the implementation of Consolidated Judicial Salary Structure (CONJUSS). A 21-day ultimatum issued by the union had since elapsed without any feedback from the government despite several correspondence between the two sides. The National President of JUSUN, Comrade Marwan Mustapha Adamu, lamented to Blueprint that government is merely paying lip service to the question of industrial harmony in the justice sector. He said the workers had resolved to “fight to the finish” this time around because their demand for a document from the National Salaries, Income and Wages Commission for the implementation of CONJUSS “has been foot-dragging since 2009.” Adamu added, “We don’t want federal go ...
Mohammed Bello Adoke has begun moves to nullify the conviction of former PDP Deputy National Chairman, Chief Olabode Ibiyinka George.- Bode George! Ex-convict! **Is it not clear now that, President Jonathan isn't interested in fighting CORRUPTION. This is another reason to reject Goodluck & PDP in 2015.14 years of CORRUPTION is more than ENOUGH! He doesn't want to fight INSECURITY! He doesn't want to fight UNEMPLOYMENT! He doesn't want to fight CORRUPTION! But he desperately wants to hold onto POWER in 2015! You be the judge and decide if this is the kind of President, you want to see in Aso-Rock in 2015.

Prince Rasak Sunday, 27 May 2012 Nigeria's Attorney General Adoke Lies, Misleads Nigerians In Reaction To N155billion Malabu Oil Block Scandal-PREMIUM TIMES  AGF Mohammed Bello Adoke After days of keeping mum and in an effort to cover-up the scam and absolve itself of any complicity, the Federal Government, through the Attorney General of the Federation, Mohammed Adoke, Sunday claimed that it only played the role of “facilitator of the resolution of a long standing dispute,” in the N155billion oil block scandal involving it, two multinational companies, and Malabu Oil, largely owned by former petroleum minister, Dan Etete. The Federal Government’s response, which came through a press statement by Mr. Adoke, not only ignored several core issues raised by previous stories written by PREMIUM TIMES and other Nigerian publications, but further exposed the dubious roles played by the government in the transaction. PREMIUM TIMES had reported how the Federal Government, Nigeria Agip Exploration Limited ( ...
