– Kuku desperately tries to campaign for Ondo Governor despite being wanted by EFCC

The rumour of Kingsley Kuku’s political adventure had been spreading like a prairie fire; speculations about his quest to occupy the Ondo State Government house as the Governor come year 2016 were laid to rest as his political campaign posters have flooded the streets of Akure, the Ondo State capital.
The posters purportedly pasted overnight by desperate supporters of Kuku who are been financed, and to ostensibly create awareness for his political ambition to contest the next year’s Ondo governorship poll, alongside several other gladiators expected to race.
Kuku’s posters flooded major and strategic locations including frontage of offices, parastatals, and Government Residential Areas both in Alagbaka government offices, and NEPA/hospital and Oyemekun road.
The posters were branded with the color of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) bearing his full name with the aspiration of becoming the next Ondo State governor come year 2016.
Kuku’s inalienable right to vote and be voted is here being placed under constitutional contest nor his electoral chances under any psephological prognosis but the one-million-dollar question agitating the minds of political analysts is what makes him believe he is a marketable politician and that beautiful bride waiting to be embraced and cuddled by the high conscious but peculiar Ondo electorate.
Without any prevarication, Ondo politics thrives prominently with blatant reference to ancestral and historical antecedents of the players of the game, and when Kuku’s book of public engagement with the Nigerian polity is open for public scrutiny, his political weight would only be compared with a feather. Records are not kept to assist the weakness of memory, but to operate as guides to the future.
Interestingly, cowards die many times before their deaths; some could pass as brave for their characteristic bluster, if you would pardon their timely headache, occasional cancer and coincidental ‘knee injury’ at the moment when they have to keep a date with comeuppance.
Take the hilarious case of Kingsley Kuku for instance, despite his initial posturing, the former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Niger Delta Affairs, is scared silly of the invitation extended to him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Kuku is yet to honour the EFCC’s invitation for questioning on allegations of fraud.
He had earlier failed to appear before the commission ‪on July 28, a few weeks after the anti-graft agency invited him for interrogation citing a knee injury, for which he was receiving treatment at St Andrew hospital, Alabama in the United States (US), as his reason for ignoring the invitation of the agency. He also denied claims that he was a fugitive, emphasising that he was a patriotic Nigerian, who would return home to clear his name.
Rather than return to the country to honour the EFCC’s invitation, Kuku sponsored a photo-ops on social media posting a picture of his knee in bandage. “I am a patriotic Nigerian; I have a future and image to protect. Therefore, my integrity is more important to me than the vanity of this world,” he had said in a statement. “I have no foreign bank account, I have no house anywhere apart from Nigeria and I have since returned all government property in my possession before leaving.” Kuku had said through his lawyers that he would “definitely” report to the EFCC latest by 10am on September 30 to face the allegations brought against him. But Wilson Uwujaren, spokesman of the EFCC, on Monday confirmed that the former aide of Jonathan was yet to honour the invitation of the commission.
The Capital findings revealed that contrary to Kuku’s brave posturing, he is very scared of prosecution by the EFCC. Sources close to the former presidential aide reveal that he is desperately considering seeking asylum overseas in order to avoid legal entanglements over his role in the pilfering of Nigeria’s treasury during the immediate past administration.
But if Kuku’s hands are truly clean and he actually has “a future and image to protect” like he claimed, why has he turned himself into a fugitive? What could be scaring him from his own country? With additional information from Saharareporters.

    Saharareporters can tell lie. People use to say saharareporters do tell lies, I finally believe it now. How can someone say this in public ;”My master would bribe his way out and contest the poll” End time is coming for those who tell lies as a profession in 2016.
