I Will Forever Be Grateful To Goodluck Jonathan For Sacking Me – Former EFCC Boss Shocks The World, Makes A Mighty Revelation

Former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Farida Waziri, has said that she thanks God that former President, Goodluck Jonathan, sacked her as the Commission’s boss.

She stated that had she not been sacked by the ex-President, she would have been traumatised by now, given the ongoing revelation of alleged grand corruption that took place under the last administration.

The ex-EFCC boss, said this during an interaction with Journalists, in Lagos, at the weekend.

When Waziri was asked to react to the revelation about the alleged corruption that took place under Jonathan’s watch, she said:

“I am only glad that those things did not happen under my watch as the EFCC Chairman, because it would have been too traumatic for me.

“And that is why if I see President Jonathan today, I will kneel down to thank him for the honour done me, by removing me as the EFCC Chairman at the time he did.

“My first strong premonition of what was ahead, was when I began the probe of the monumental oil subsidy fraud going on then.”

“I came to Lagos on a vital intelligence on the subsidy scam, and as soon as I arrested a key culprit, I got a call from the Presidential Villa asking me to release the suspect, because in their words, ‘he is our person’, but I refused to let him off, and days after, I was removed from office”, Waziri was quoted to have said.
