- Tells Buhari to learn anti-corruption fight from the Tanzanian president.
- ..APC administration was only fighting corruption on the pages of Newspapers…
Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has said President Muhammadu Buhari has lost moral right to continue the so-called anti-corruption fight in the country.
While describing the anti-corruption crusade as fake. Frank said the current administration should stop deceiving the people and the international community over the programme which he said was largely a failure.
The political activist, therefore, urged Buhari to learn how to fight corruption from the Tanzanian President, adding that currently, all the institutions of government and sectors are more corrupt now than ever.
In his reaction to comment made by the president during his keynote address at the Democracy Day anti-corruption summit titled, ‘Curbing electoral spending: A panacea for public corruption,’ Frank said the APC administration was only fighting corruption on the pages of Newspapers while its officials are the most corrupt set of people in the history of Nigeria.
Buhari had yesterday said outcome of the interaction, among others, shall serve as the basis for a more concerted effort by his administration to close existing legislative loopholes, facilitate collaboration with the judiciary and strengthen the criminal justice system, enforce effective asset declaration by public office holders, ensure sanctions by professional bodies against lawyers, bankers, brokers, public officials, and other individuals facilitating corrupt practices and ensure comprehensive support and protection to whistle-blowers, witnesses and victims of corruption.
He also called on the president to allow the judiciary do its job and determine who is corrupt, saying as of now, anyone not aligned with APC is a corrupt Nigerian under the current administration.
He, therefore, challenged Buhari to reveal what has become of the NNPC scandal, fuel subsidy, Ikoyi-gate where huge amount of money was discovered and so many corrupt elements around him.
