The year 2013 has been a very eventful one, and it is fast drawing to a close.
A lot of things that occurred during the year have been left unresolved; questions left unanswered, mysteries left unsolved.
A number of controversies arose in the course of the year and somewhere along the line we were promised or at least expected ” robust replies” to our many enquiries.
Here are the top 5 “robust replies “we are still expecting before the year ends:
1, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo:
This is number one on our list for obvious reasons. The General Overseer of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly came under intense scrutiny after a former member of his congregation, Ese Walter, claimed that they had been involved in an intimate relationship.
In response to Miss Walter’s claims, the pastor said that his camp was preparing a ‘robust reply’ to address the allegations. We are still waiting.
2, Stella Oduah:
The Aviation Minister, Ms. Stella Oduah got caught in a storm of controversy after news that she had ordered the purchase of 2 bullet-proof cars worth N255 million was leaked to the public.
The resulting criticisms and public anger eventually dimmed to a quiet lull. The minister was reportedly probed and ordered to appear at the National Assembly. The question is, what will be done about her actions? We are awaiting a response.
3, Goodluck Jonathan to Olusegun Obasanjo:
Earlier in the month, former President Olusegun Obasanjo sent an 18-page stinker to President Goodluck Jonathan accusing him of a number of atrocities.
Chief Obasanjo accused President Jonathan of “destroying the country” and the president reportedly told his aides that he would himself prepare a suitable reply to his predecessor.
4, Goodluck Jonathan to Sanusi Lamido:
The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, is said to have written a letter to President Goodluck Jonathan asking for an explanation as to why $50 billion in crude oil revenue had not been remitted to the apex bank.
The CBN governor has said that the expected amount is now $12billion but his question has still not been answered.
5, Olusegun Obasanjo to Iyabo Obasanjo:
The current controversy in the country is centered around a letter said to have been written by Senator Iyabo Obasanjo to her father, Olusegun Obasanjo.
The letter, released by Vanguard describes the former president as a hypocrite, liar and an abominable father, amongst other things.
Chief Obasanjo and his camp are apparently still in denial as they insist that Senator Obasanjo could not have insulted her father in such a manner. One way or another, we know a response of sorts is inevitable, and we are eagerly awaiting it.
