Took 11 Years but justice finally served to Jolly Tavoro Nyame. We need special anti corruption courts, with its own rules, should not take 11 years to bring rogues to justice and some other cases are dragging forever. pic.twitter.com/KPRgqxHquc

If someone like Jolly Nyame could be jailed for 14yrs, what is Amaechi and co still doing around Buhari?
Jail real looters not persecute people like Dokpesi, FFk or Metuh because they supported another candidate against you and they are now opposition.

14 Years prison sentence to Former Governor and Member of APC Jolly Nyame. Other APC members awaiting trial for criminal activities should stop threatening the government with defection.

Jolly Nyame, a man of God, and APC member, got 14 years (without an option of fine)for graft. What this tells us is that even clergymen can steal, and being an APC member will not shield you from jail under this government.

Now that rule of law has sentenced Jolly Nyame, who fapped N1.6Billion Taraba's money under "My Watch," to 14yrs imprisonment, It's now time for Odinkalu to start campaigning against prison congestion as part of Buhari's incompetence. This jollof is burning at the bottom…eish!! pic.twitter.com/YCcGAQyx3D
