Revealed: Col. Gwadabe Secret Memo To Jonathan Exposes Babangida’s Hidden Wealth, Mike Adenuga’s Link and Bukola Saraki’s Corruption


A memo addressed to Goodluck Jonathan by a former army colonel, Lawan Gwadabe, who is currently the chairman of the Nigerian Federal Road Safety Commission provides amazing insight into how Goodluck Jonathan recently cowed former dictator, Ibrahim Babangida, and those state governors opposed to his presidential candidature.

The memo, which was obtained by Saharareporters, also provides a rare insight into Mr. Babangida’s stupendous wealth as well as well as that of his long-time friend, Globacom’s Mike Adenuga.

Also listed in the memo are the fronts that were used by the governor of Kwara State, Bukola Saraki to siphon funds from the Kwara State treasury.

Col. Gwadabe’s memo made no pretense about the ruthless and handy tactics Jonathan could employ to intimidate his opponents, particularly the Economic and Financial crimes Commission (EFCC) and the State Security Services (SSS).

Col. Gwadabe, however, cautioned Jonathan about relying exclusively on the EFCC because, according to the memo, the EFCC chair, Farida Waziri, is dogged by the into office with serious credibility problems that followed her into office.

The memo was dated September 6 2010, nearly two weeks before Jonathan formally announced his presidential bid on September 18 2010. The events of that period before the declaration suggest that Gwadabe’s suggestions were fully taken advantage of before and thereafter Jonathan’s Eagle Square dance.
