Whether its mere foolhardiness or a case of being in a temporary state of insanity, the action of the Hamarji trio was one to be indulged with total nuts.
For one, we are sure that all the three top administrators couldn't be in temporary abnormal state coincidentally hence commandeer the goods using state machinery.
Secondly, given their status, they couldn't take to the crime given that it was one in the open with much public interest and that the Presidency wished to see the initial crooks who first deviated the alms brought to book.
Now that the trio has been booted from service and is behind cells as the case is delved into, ours is to urge the state to dig deeper.
We are happily overwhelmed that the Presidency took swift action and had them arrested and sacked immediately thereafter.
We never saw such express anti-corruption moves in the past.
The members of the public would however want to know as to what extent this corruption reacted.
The questions starking out that pops to mind is whether the Hamarji trio were the initial culprits who first deviated the goods from its course and route.
Secondly, had they already sold the goods to other unscrupulous traders before their arrests?
If so, who are they?
This is because they, too, are ofcourse thieves and thugs of the highest orders.
We hope the government treats this grievous case with the seriousness it deserves hence be a good example serving as a deterrent to any future crooks who might harbour pilfers intentions.
The trio is indeed much embarrassment to the country, people and government.
They massively abused the oner, honour and heavy responsibilities entrusted upon them and undertook to embark upon the extreme opposite of their expected tasks.
Once more we praise the President for doing the necessary swiftly and expressly.
This underscores the fact that when the Head of State established the governance and anti-corruption bureau he was quite serious in battling the vice.
In the same breath, we hope the commission to tackle these crimes are empowered more as justifiably and are aided with ways and means of going about their duties with ease.
It in fact needs, if we underpin on the same note, the collective responsibility of all government machineries, the members of the public and all organizations thereof to put their efforts together and, jointly, uproot wholly the corruption disease from our community.
