dsp-alamsThe National Publicity Secretary of the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, Mr. Rotimi Fashakin, has reacted to the state pardon granted former Bayelsa state governor, Chief DSP Alamieyeseigha by the National Council of State presided over by President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday describing it as an invitation for people to engage in corruption.

Fashakin said, “His decision is as ludicrous and laughable as giving post humous pardon to Ishola Oyenusi, Lawrence Anini and Monday Osunbor; the notorious armed robbers that terrorised Nigerians in the 70’s and 80’s!

“There is a better way to show solidarity with one’s boss than this utterly reprehensible action.”

It would be recalled that Alamieseigha was impeached on December 9, 2005, by the Bayelsa State House of Assembly and arrested minutes after by officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to face trial for charges bordering on money laundering and corrupt enrichment. In July 2007, he was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment by a Federal High Court in Lagos for money laundering and corrupt enrichment.
