Buhari Credits His Anti-Corruption Stance For 1985 Coup And Resulting Detention

Dogara Millions of Nigerians haven’t bowed to the god of corruption Soyinka urges EFCC to go after past Nigerian leaders

The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen, called for more political will by governments in the continent in the fight against corruption.

He was eventually put in prison for three years. The president said despite that experience, his "objective of fighting corruption remains steadfast".

He said anti corruption agencies "have recovered and are still recovering trillions of naira that were stolen in the past few years by people without conscience".

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday said that his government has since inception in 2015 made notable progress in corruption fight and that he would not spare corrupt officials no matter how long it takes.

The President also denied allegations that his government embarked on witch-hunts in the fight against graft. He urged the National Assembly to "add more verve" to government's effort by "reviewing archaic provisions" that would address lapses in the legal frameworks.

In his goodwill message, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, noted that Buhari is not the only graft-free individual in the country. Yes, some of my ministers were accused of corruption but I can assure you that it was something we tried to make sure it didn't happen especially in our public service.

Dogara, who also expressed concern on the issue of Nigeria being labeled as "fantastically corrupt" said, "not all public officers are corrupt".

A former governor of old Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, and a Second Republic lawmaker, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, have both condemned President Muhammadu Buhari, on his fight against corruption. And in 16 years that the PDP governed Nigeria, not one of the chairmen of the EFCC ever wore a lapel pin promoting the reelection of the PDP President that appointed him.

Ms Scotland also charged officials of the EFCC to remain determined and sustain the current momentum of the anticorruption campaign.

Balarabe said, "I agree that it was corruption that sent him out of power in 1985".

Magu said that since President Buhari took over office in 2015, the EFCC has convicted about 422 cases with 89 of them secured in 2018 alone.

"The people who work in this building are valuable. When I was appointed as acting chairman EFCC, I have always had the mind to bring this project to completion".

As if the President's renewed sermon on anti-corruption is to prepare the road to 2019, the Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has dismissed threats by members of the New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) to exit the APC.

This was after he left Dutse, the Jigawa State Capital after his two-day working visit to the state.

"The future is bright for Nigeria, as the economy has taken a turn for the better, our foreign reserves are nearly twice the level we met, boosting investor confidence and stabilising the Naira, and inflation has declined consecutively for more than a year".
