A group under the aegis of Ethnic Na­tionality Forum Stand for Equity and Gov­ernance, has called on the National Assembly under the leadership of the Sen­ate President Dr Bukola Saraki, and the Speaker of the House of Representa­tive Hon Yakubu Dogara, to caution and probe the excesses of the Econom­ic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over their harassment, in­timidation and slandering of the image of the Good­luck Jonathan family, espe­cially the former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan in the media.
The group, compris­ing Ijaw Youth Council, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, Ndokwa Youth Movement, Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, Yor­uba Youth Council and Middle Belt Youth Coun­cil, who in its jointly signed statement praised the 8th National Assembly, say­ing, “Contrary to the previ­ous expectations, you have been a fiercely independent parliament that has served as an effective check to the Executive.
“Your people-orient­ed positions such as your stance on the proposed $29billion loan and the ill-advised plan by the Ni­gerian Communication Commissioned (NCC) to increase the price of data are just two classic examples.”
Decrying the excesses of EFCC, the group said, “Af­ter due deliberations and consultations, we the lead­ership of the Ethnic Na­tionalities Forum stand for Equity and Good Govern­ance made the following resolutions: We call on the National Assembly to call the Economic and Finan­cial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to probe the way they have been harassing, intimidating and slander­ing the image of the Good­luck Jonathan family, espe­cially the former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan in the media.
l“We unequivocally con­demn the freezing of the ac­counts of former First Lady, Patience Jonathan and oth­er innocent people relat­ed to her, such as kids and other family members, who are not even under investi­gation.
