PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has again been criticized over what is perceived as ‘’selective’’ war against corruption.
The criticism, this time comes from a group of Southern leaders, who also expressed displeasure over the President’s uneven appointments.
The group, under the umbrella, the Southern Nigeria Peoples Assembly -SNP, Tuesday, met in Akure, Ondo State, where they condemned President Buhari’s approach in tackling the menace of corruption in the country.
Former Federal Minister of Information, Chief Edwin Clark who led the group, said the dialectics of corruption require a holistic fight, which must not be limited ‘’to some perceived political enemies and foes to score cheap political points.’’
Clark said the legacies of a transformed country could be passed on to the future generations, only if the battle against corruption is ‘’genuinely and seriously fought without fear of favour.’’
“As Nigerians, we are all equal without regard to race, creed and tribe. It is therefore my candid appeal to President Buhari to live his priceless mantra ‘I belong to everybody, but I belong to nobody’ in the manner, that the affairs of state are conducted, regardless of who gave him 95 percent votes and 5 percent of votes.”
He however, noted that the war against corruption was a step in good direction, saying it ‘’is essential to put Nigeria on the global map of business friendly nations that will earn the country prosperity.’’
