First, it was Goodluck Jonathan, then Muhammad Buhari, now it is David Adeleke. Whenever something is going wrong in the country or in their personal lives, Nigerians tend to need a larger than life figure to hold responsible.
Davido who was recently in the news over alleged negligible homicide allegations, for arranging and/or participating in a Tequila drinking competition which reportedly led to the loss of life of one of his close pals, has been implicated in a new scandal.
In the wake of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) $25 billion scams, Davido once again has been fingered.
The fingerer this time is none other than the former media aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
He believes Davido’s 30 billion in the akkant lyrics are the reason for the malfeasance currently being unravelled in the national oil company.

Minister of State for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwuhad petitioned PresidentMuhammadu Buhari, accusing the Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Maikanti Baru, of $25 billion contract scam.
The minister also alleged that Baru makes unilateral decisions, sidelining him and other key members of the NNPC board.
Reacting to the allegations, Baru had said he is not legally mandated him to discuss contracts with Kachikwu.
The Executive Director of SERAP, Adetokunbo Mumuni, said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) should uncover what really transpired contracts process in the NNPC.
“I don’t want to take sides with anybody but the oil sector needs to be put straight and due process must be followed in the award of contracts,” Mumuni said.
“The investigators such as the EFCC and the ICPC must come into this matter. They must investigate transparently and release the report of that probe.
“This is necessary so that Nigerians can know what has transpired. Was due process followed? Was the process of awarding the contracts free of corruption? It is only when this has been determined that this government can prove that its anti-graft war is real.
