Your Next Address Will Be Prison Soon, Ex-Convict Tells Politicians
One thing Nigerian politicians do not really see is the possibility of going to prison as a result of their embezzlement of the nation's treasury, but a former prisoner who had served a 10-year jail term thinks differently.
This lack of will-power to prosecute thieving politicians has fueled embezzlement.
Pastor Kayode Williams is, however, convinced that a crop of Nigerians would find themselves in governance and they would exercise the courage needed to send politicians who have looted the nation's funds to prison.
He also believes that with the current state of the nation's prison, the politicians will regret why they did not pursue reforms for the prisons.
The ex-convict is an advocate of prison reforms and he wants the government to turn the prisons, which he said were only good for animals, to meet international standard.
"The prison at this time is breeding hardened criminals instead of reformed persons, Pastor Williams insisted.
"The government should reform the prisons.
"Now that politicians are getting ready to be in the prison, with their system of embezzling money, majority of them, whether sooner or later, their next address with be the prison.
"I don't know why they are not focusing on making sure that they lay their bed in a way that they will be able to have a comfortable room," he said.
The pastor also stressed the need for the government to first reduce the number of Nigerians going into the prison by ensuring that Nigerians get good governance.
They should ensure that the youths are employed to keep them busy and make them avoid crimes, he stressed.
How soon Pastor Williams' wishes will come true is something that no one knows, as many of the politicians who loot the nation's money get freed for want of evidence in court, while some sacrifice some amount of money in plea-bargain to get freedom.
