FG Corruption Fight Still Very Alive – Lai Mohammed
Lai Mohammed, minister of information, has challenged those claiming the fight against corruption by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is dead to dare the government.
The minister said his on Tuesday, while addressing a press conference in Abuja, adding that the probes of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) show that the federal government is taking the fight against corruption seriously.
Uche Secondus, national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had last week described the anti-graft war as a ruse.
Mohammed, at the press conference said those who do not believe in the anti-corruption fight are “free to dare us.”
“As you are all aware, Nigerians have recently been inundated with allegations of monumental corruption in a number of government agencies, including the NDDC, NSITF and the anti-corruption agency, EFCC,” he said.
“Many, especially naysayers, have misinterpreted these developments as a sign that the Administration’s fight against corruption is waning. In fact, the main opposition PDP has latched on to the developments to call for the resignation of Mr. President, a call that is nothing but infantile!
“Let me state here and now that the fight against corruption, a cardinal programme of this administration, is alive and well.
