Abuja: Nigeria. Government corruption fight is mere hype as Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari and his APC regime do not seem eager to tackle the sleaze around cronies and kinsmen with same mania they hound political opponents. 

Atiku releadses 10 questions Buhari must answer

by Fikayo Olowolagba, Daily Post

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has posed ten questions President Muhammadu Buhari must answer.

Atiku in a statement by his media team, while criticizing Buhari’s anti-corruption war, cited some cases Nigerians needed answers to.

The former vice president, citing cases of abandoned corrupt cases, condemned the appearance of Babachir Lawal, Buhari’s former Secretary to the Government of the Federation at the Presidential Villa on Thursday, December 13, 2018.

Daily Post recalls that Lawal, who is been investigated by EFCC for alleged irregularities in Presidential Initiative on North-East (PINE) activities, attended the launch of Together Nigeria, organized by the Buhari Support Organization (BSO) in Aso Rock, Abuja.

Reacting, Atiku condemned Babachir’s visit, describing it as a stain to the anti-corruption war promoted by Buhari’s administration.

According to him, “ It is a very sad day for Nigeria when the President honours a man proven beyond all reasonable doubt to have soiled his hands with money meant for starving refugees.”

The statement read in part: “These are the actions which feed the perceptions that have made Nigeria turn in its worst ever Corruption Perception Index rating by Transparency International where we went back 12 steps in 2018’s rankings, moving from 136 under President Jonathan to 148 today.

“According to Transparency International, Nigeria is more corrupt today and we ask the government to answer a few questions including:

“Who reinstated and double promoted Maina?

“Who owns the Ikoyi Apartment $42 million?

“What has happened to Aisha Buhari’s ADC who looted ₦2.5 billion?

“Why was the $25 billion NNPC contracts awarded without due process investigated?

“Why haven’t those behind Buhari’s padded budget scandals been sacked or charged to court?

“When will Babachir be charged?

“How come fuel subsidy has doubled even when petrol price has doubled?

“Why did President Buhari lift the suspension of the corrupt NHIS boss, Usman Yusuf, before public pressure forced him to suspend him? Why has he not been charged?

“In May, Transparency International warned that Buhari had increased Security Vote by 600%, yet our soldiers have no weapons and are killed by terrorists. Where is the money going?

“In February Buhari withdrew $1 billion from the Excess Crude Account to ostensibly fund the war on terror, yet the Chief of Army Staff said after Metele that they have no weapons. Where did that money go?

“Answers to these and other questions are urgently required from President Buhari by Nigerians and failure to answer them only proves that under Buhari, the All Progressive Congress Government is not just Corrupt, but corruption is its policy.”
