Buhari’s Govt Lacks Political Will to Fight Corruption – Falana
|Mr. Femi Falana|
He stated this on Friday while speaking on the topic: “Restructuring, Pros and Cons: The place of the Nigerian youth”, at the 78th International Students Day organised by the Ogun State Government in Abeokuta, the state capital.
Falana noted that the fight against corruption embarked upon by the Buhari government remained a mere scratch on the surface.
He said, “I am sure you are following the anti-corruption war being prosecuted by Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, men and women are involved.
“Christians and Muslims are involved and those who believe in traditional religions are involved. One person has been charged with collecting N4.7bn from former President Goodluck Jonathan for spiritual consultation.
“The point I am making is that if our looters are not divided on the table of ethnicity nothing will happen. The government still lacks the political will, the war now is just a tip of the real iceberg; there is still money to be recovered.”
The human rights lawyer also faulted the Senate for approving $5.5bn loan request put forward by the executive.
