As some people continue to criticise the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari over perceived selective fight against corruption, Mr. Anthony Sani, former National Publicity Secretary, Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), has warned those critics to desist from their acts on the premise that their objections would help corruption to fight back.
Sani, who said this on Friday in a statement, maintained that those complaining that the fight against corruption was selective were not helping the war against corruption, but instead they were helping corruption to fight back
“When people give ethnic, religious and partisan or even regional coloration to all actions of government, it is not helpful. Are those accusing President Buhari of skewing the fight against corruption saying those arraigned are not corrupt but arraigned based on trumped-up charges because they are of the opposition?
“We cannot expect application of quota system and federal character in the war against corruption. The anti-graft war cannot begin and end with Dasukigate,” he said, referring to the ongoing trial and scandal surrounding Col. Sambo Dasuki, former National Security Adviser, who allegedly diverted billions of dollars meant for military hardware.
Sani further said that the war against corruption and insecurity, which was the cardinal priority of the present administration, has recorded some success and urged Nigerians to support the Buhari administration in the quest to stamp out corruption in the country.
