Former PresidentÂ OlusegunÂ Obasanjo has attacked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, which was founded during his regime, calling it a toothless bulldog.
Speaking during his 79th birthday celebration held at Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun State yesterday March 5th, Obasanjo said
â€œHonestly, when Nuhu was handling EFCC, he handled it in such a way that people coined the saying that â€˜the fear of Nuhu Ribadu is the beginning of wisdom â€˜ and then the question you will ask is, how did we go down? How did we lose that? Nuhu Ribadu is still here, heâ€™s still alive. The institution we started together is still there, but what made the institution to become a toothless bulldog? Thatâ€™s the matter we have to keep looking at, so that we donâ€™t take two steps forward, one step aside and three steps back.â€
