The Nigerian Police on 13th of July 2012 arrested house of representatives member Farouk Lawan, chairman of the ad hoc committee of the House of Representatives for receiving bribe from shady oil business magnate Femi Otedola.

As at date, the case is yet to be decided BUT the Nigerian people are patiently watching.  The probable scheme within the corridors of power is to sweep the case under the carpet but we should not allow that. Farouk should have his day in court and let justice be dispensed.

We also need to remember that justice delayed is justice denied. Time is of essence and it does no one any good for our courts to drag this case for long.

Lest we forget a little leaven, leavens the whole lump. If we do not dispense justice on this issue, we will continue to be a pariah in the community of nation states.
