    My dear everyday..folks dey shout Alams is a thief make dem hang am for the nearest tree...Every Nigerian dey sorry Bayelsa people because dem governor na thief...Bayelsa is the unluckiest state in Nigeria. Infact Nigerians wants other governors to take turns running Bayelsa state to prevent corruption there !! Alams is the reason Nigeria has deteriorated ..no food light and shelter in Nigeria just because of Alams. Alams is the downfall of Nigeria. Once he is impeached Nigeria will return to its old glory and Bayelsa will be developed like Abuja !!! I am so excited and cant wait !!

    Whether or not they are using him as scapegoat,he did wrong and needs to be punished for it. I think they shud start the weeding with alams.he's just one of many but like i said b4, they need to break the cycle somewhere and stick with the process.

    The Great Fraud: How Britain helped Alamieyeseigha to flee

    FRESH facts have emerged to substantiate the allegations of the Federal Government that embattled Bayelsa State governor, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, was actually released and flown out of London to Nigeria with the connivance of the British government. Nigerian Tribune gathered from a source close to the Presidency in Abuja that the Bayelsa State government actually signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the British government for the release of the governor.


    Part of the terms of the agreement was that he would forfeit the monetary value of the surety used to guarantee his bail bond which was $1.5 million. The governor, apart from also forfeiting the landed properties pledged as surety which was valued at around $11 million (N2.75 billion), all the cash found on the governor and his wife would be forfeited to the British government, according to the agreement.


    Britain was said to have concurred to the agreement to release the governor and fly him under security cover to Nigeria where he would never be prosecuted because of the immunity clause in the constitution which precludes him from any criminal prosecution until the end of his tenure. It was on the basis of the mutual understanding that Alamieyeseigha was brought under security cover in the wee hours of penultimate Monday.


    Alamieyeseigha, and by extension the Bayelsa State government, on his part, as part of the agreement, is expected to ensure the safety of lives and property of Britons living and doing business in the Niger Delta region. Also, the Bayelsa State government is expected to rein in the militant activities of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteers Force (NDPVF) which leader, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, is facing treason charges in Abuja High Court.

    The UK doesnt give a rat's a*s*s about Nigeria !! They are not about to use their tax payers money to litigate a diplomat and thereby draw National attention !! They obviously have gotten their diplomacy policies in check... that is if the story is true...but I doubt it ! The first rumor I believe is the truth...Alams dresing up and all !
    OR
    Maybe he plea bargained and chose to give up stuff for his freedom ...big loss to Naija !! Next time Obj will demand the return of his citizens and handle these matters himself !!!

    What were the makers of the Nigerian constitution thinking by giving government officials total immunity? That's was an act of corruption in and of itself. With such a law in place, you're basically welcoming thieves and crooks into the gov. with open arms. Eliminate that law, keep up and intensify the OBJ witch-hunt... and I'll bet federal corruption in Naija will drop 55%-60% nearly instantly, guaranteed.

    Alams-Throw the 1st stone !

    I strongly believe that the plot against DSP did not start just like that. It has been planned for a long time. What is 1million pounds? How much was Late Stella Obasanjo's beauty operation in spain? These are the simple things that we do that God turns his back on us. Let no one live in a glass house and throw stones.



    The state legislatures are ganging to impeach their governor, for what? Let anyone amongst them who is innocent and sane throw the first stone. How far have they gone in utilizing their constituency allocations as legislatures that represent their people? All of them are in this crime together, have they forgotten so quickly the Jamboree they went to US to do last year? Was that not part of the waste.



    You see, one Igbo adage says, "if the hunter learns how to shoot without missing, the bird will also learn to fly without perching". They have planned to deal with this man. The plan matured fine, he suffered for almost six weeks, without seeing the shores of the land. They were still planning to nail him finally, but DSP being Amalinze "the Cat", he has nine lives. He has survived so well and managed to come back from London. Let the drums be rolled out, let the dancers come out, let the merriment begin. Bayelsans will never allow their governor to be disgraced completely like that. Dokubo is at Abuja answering questions that are not worth it, what kind of country are we in today.



    Finally, if EFCC have guts, let them start the prosecution from the bigger ones, people like Babangida are still walking the streets of Nigeria free. Obasanjo asked Nigerians to bring evidence against Babangida, what a funny statement from a serving President. Let them get to Anambra state and bring Chris Uba and co. Have they not welcomed back that fraudster to their PDP? Enough of this discussion on DSP, I have not seen any murder he committed.



    A country without unemployment figure with millions of adult and children hawking in the street, prostitution and Arm robbery becoming the order of the day is a big shame. A man who has been ruling for almost eight (8) years with nothing to show for it wants more years in office. This is madness. Today we still have electricity problem, no good road, no good water supply…fulfilling any of these will have positive effects on the common man's lifestyle.



    The EFCC is nothing but a government weapon used to intimidate certain individuals who are not in their inner circle. It is used to show to the international committee that they are truly fighting corruption, however, what they don't know is that they cannot fool the International committee as they know all about their foreign transactions and offshore bank accounts. Half a word is enough for the wise. Men are getting closer to individual government officials operating foreign bank accounts (which is against Nigeria’s code of ethics). A full publication will be out very soon.



    As Nigerians living at home and abroad, we should stop deceiving ourselves and come to the frontline of reality so that this nation, Nigeria, will progress from the hands of those ardent psychopaths who rule today. They are bunch of failures, they should admit, instead of Para finding in the cupboard of political scents. This word is enough for them....I rest my case.

    Finally1 I hope more governors will go d same route. Most of them are just kokoro thief. I heard no governor has travelled abroad since Alams arrest in the Uk b4 e escape.
    I would just jump with GLEE if IBB gets arrested. I pity Atiku too cos OBJ is going to deal with him next. All these thief thief leaders...everyday na 4 d thief but one day go b 4 we the poor long suffering masses.
    Abeg make them hurry put am for jail jare.

    Gov Alamieyeseigha impeached, arrested by 200 armed policemen
    The governor of an oil-rich Nigerian state who skipped bail in Britain to escape trial there for money-laundering was arrested in Nigeria Friday by 200 armed policemen, after lawmakers removed his immunity from prosecution, his spokesman said.



    Diepreye Alamieyeseigha "was arrested at about 7:00 am this morning by the state commissioner of police. The commissioner came to government house with about 200 mobile policemen. I have heard he is to be flown to Abuja," Bayelsa state's information commissioner, Oronto Douglas, told AFP Friday.

    Alamieyeseigha fled London last month after he was charged with handling 1.8 million pounds (3.2 million dollars, 2.7 million euros) in embezzled public funds. He returned to Bayelsa where he enjoyed immunity, but this was lifted Friday by state lawmakers.
