Over the few months the presidency started waging serious war on corruption ,many has tagged it a selfish fight,one sided,Cabal Motivated war,and many more.Here is what Former Governor of Abia State Said
A former Abia State Governor, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, on Friday said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war was not selective as being perceived in some quarters.
According to him, the President has the right to demand explanation on how the nation’s money was spent by those being investigated.
Addressing journalists after paying a visit to a former Military President, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, at his Uphill residence in Minna, the Niger State capital, Kalu said people would be biased in their reasoning if they thought the anti-corruption war is selective.
The former Abia State governor said, “I do not believe that the anti-corruption war by President Buhari is selective. Someone may look at it in the perspective that it is selective because it is the people in the previous government that are involved and this is because they are the ones who handled the money during that period.”
Kalu, however, called on the President to pay more attention to the economy of the nation.
He said, “I support President Buhari in the fight against corruption, but as we are fighting corruption, we should also look at the industrial base of the country. No country can survive with only politics. The economy is very important to the nation.”
He urged the President to reopen all bureau de change that had been closed in the country, adding that not all of them engaged in fraudulent activities.
Kalu also urged Buhari to used dialogue to resolve the Niger Delta militancy.
