Lamido Slams Buhari for 'Noisy and Deceptive' Inaction on Corruption War.

Per Second News----Former governor of Jigawa state, Sule Lamido, has slammed the Buhari administration for being all talk and no action on the war against corruption.

 

“Buhari is just making noise; there’s no iota of truth in the so-called commitment to the improvement of security and halting graft in the country.”

Lamido in an interview with the BBC said that President Buhari was an ally of the most corrupt Nigerian leader in history and also worked with the late Gen Sani Abacha.

“He (Buhari) worked under Abacha; in fact he was the closest to the late military ruler and when it comes to corruption, everybody knows where Abacha’s government stands.”

Lamido also faulted the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for its refusal to disclose the owners of the monies recovered in an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos.

“It’s unthinkable to say that the EFCC had discovered huge monies in a building in Lagos but could not track the real owner; who leaked the story? Who did the source say is the owner of the find?” he asked.

“Those in position of authority should always have the courage to tell the led the truth because leadership is sacred.”

Lamido, in the interview specifically contends that the Buhari administration largely manufactured a dishonest narrative about the over $40 million dollars found in an Ikoyi, Lagos flat.

Despite few success by the federal government the fight against corruption has provoked a torrent of commentary amongst Nigerians.
