The ex-lawmaker, in a press free up titled ‘The Wander So Some distance by the President Who Mentioned We Have to End Corruption, Sooner than Corruption Kills Nigeria,’ cited several native and world experiences to boot to instances which he cited as indicating the failure of the regime’s anti-graft marketing and marketing campaign.

The assertion partly study, “Nigerians would possibly per chance presumably presumably furthermore no longer ever neglect in a urge the catchword of the President at some stage in his marketing and marketing campaign in 2015, ‘We need to destroy corruption, sooner than corruption kills Nigeria.’ Mr President, the newsflash today is, ‘You is probably going to be no longer killing corruption; corruption is killing Nigeria.’

“The worst of it all is that we’re witnessing this uncontrolled larceny below a President whose ideal electoral selling point was taming corruption. With the hope that Buhari was the Messiah being a one-time armed forces dictator who had promised to fight corruption, Nigerians at present voted Jonathan out of space of job and installed Buhari, idolised and elevated him to the pedestal of a demigod, and chanted ‘Sai Baba’ in every corner of this country.

“But how some distance (is it) today? Regrettably! Buhari failed us, failed thousands and thousands of Nigerians that believed in him in 2015.

“Nigeria’s rating in the Corruption Index released by Transparency Worldwide has persisted to deteriorate. Our national patrimony and collective wealth has been continuously looted and mortgaged below the administration of President Buhari.

“It is worrisome that Nigerians would possibly per chance presumably presumably well no longer contain a nation we are able to name home after this administration which is sweet decrease than a year now. Other folks that voted for Buhari, pondering they contain been inserting in an anti-corruption czar, are if fact be told basically the most bitterly dissatisfied residents, and the shock is probably going to grow as the legacy of corruption unfolds. We are able to continue to be in contact because in an unjust society, silence is against the law.”
