One woman in Nigeria has raised over 100 million naira to support Obama’s Election bid in America. In Nigeria, there are more poor people than rich people. More than half of the 140m population is poor and have no access to good housing or clean water. They travel daily on dangerous roads under life-threatening conditions. Power supply in Nigeria is almost absent.
The money was raised at a very expensive dinner in Nigeria. It is common knowledge that Nigerian Politicians and powerful elites are thieves who stole from the National treasuries. Under the US Law, the woman’s action may be illegal and she could go to jail.
If she is caught in the US, will this woman be sent to jail? If the money or part of it gets to Obama, will Obama accept it? Is it legal? Nigeria is a wonderful country with wonderful events.
Professor Ndidi Okereke-Onyiuke is the Director General of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, and self appointed Chairman of the Africans for Obama 2008. She is known to have undertaken this kind of adventure in the past when she raised money for Obasanjo’s illegal 3rd term bid.
Would it not be nice for the anticorruption agency in Nigeria (EFCC) to seize this money anyway? They should use the money to feed the poor beggars on the streets or repair some dilapitated school in Anambra State.
Nigeria, land of the corrupt! A place where the only reason for politics is self-enrichment. What a country!

Mrs Okereke-Onyiuke is the biggest name in Nigerian 419. It is up to the corrupt regime to expunge one of its bag eggs. This news about raising money for Obama is a clear case of open 419.
What a woman? What a country?
