The memory of Suleiman Abba Exposed His Own Lies – Reno Omokri

My attention has been drawn to recent comments by former
Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, who alleged that he
was sacked by ex President Goodluck Jonathan because he
refused to rig elections in favour of the Peoples Democratic Party
during the gubernatorial elections in Osun State.
Speaking to Daily Trust on Sunday August 26, 2018, Mr. Abba had
said “One of the leading stalwarts in the PDP then said to me: ‘IG
(you know I was acting then) deliver Osun to us and we will
confirm you quickly.’ I was shocked! That was when I knew that I
may not last long in the office.”
The former Inspector General of Police then blamed his failure to
influence that election for his sack by then President Jonathan.
IGP Suleiman Abba is proof of the fact that liars need a very good
memory otherwise they would contradict themselves with their lies.
Let us examine some facts. The Osun State gubernatorial election
held on Saturday August 9, 2014. The results of that election was
declared the next day on Sunday, August 10, 2014.
Mr Suleiman Abba claims to have been sacked because he failed
to rig that election for the Peoples Democratic Party.
However, Suleiman Abba was appointed acting Inspector General
of Police on Friday August 1, 2014 and sacked from office on
Monday April 20, 2015.
If it was true that Mr Abba was sacked for refusing to rig the Osun
State election, which held on August 9, 2014, why would former
President Jonathan wait for 7 and a half months before sacking
If it was true that Mr Abba was sacked for refusing to rig the Osun
State election, which held on August 9, 2014, why would former
President Jonathan keep him in office to preside over the Nigerian
Police Force during the more important 2015 Presidential election
which was even more crucial to the then President and the PDP?
When juxtaposed with these facts, the accusation of the former
IGP of Police makes no sense to reasonable men and women.
Former President Jonathan is known as a man who is not
desperate for power. He has a reputation for providing the
enabling environment for free and fair elections.
As a matter of fact, when the current chairman of the All
Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, was re-elected after
the June 2012 gubernatorial election in Edo State, the then Edo
State Governor said on July 15, 2012 as follows:
“President Jonathan has demonstrated statesmanship. I think
there is hope for Nigeria. What the Edo election has confirmed is
that when the President and Commander-in-Chief puts the country
first and conducts himself as a statesman, not just as a party
leader, credible elections are possible.”
This testimony, from an opposition governor, who was opposed to
the re-election of then President Jonathan and who is now the
chairman of the APC, completely rubbishes Mr Abba’s statements.
For the avoidance of doubt, Mr Suleiman Abba was sacked for
dereliction of duty, because under his watch, the Resident Electoral
Commissioner of Kano State, Alhaji Mukaila Abdullahi, was burnt
to death with his wife and two children on Friday, April 3, 2015,
under suspicious circumstances after he had reported incidents of
severe electoral fraud in his domain.
When confronted with this suspicious death, the then acting IGP of
Police gave contradictory and unsatisfactory answers. As a leader
who valued the sanctity of human life, former President Jonathan
ordered the sack of the then acting IGP and appointed Deputy
Inspector General of police, Solomon Arase, to act in his stead and
get to the bottom of the suspicious death.
I therefore urge Mr Abba to find other ways to ingratiate himself to
the current powers that be and leave former President Jonathan
out of his lying schemes and plans.
