Balarabe-Musa, Junaid, condemn Buhari's anti-corruption fight

Soyinka urges EFCC to go after past Nigerian leaders

The was baring his mind at the commissioning of new office complex for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) where he said he is not deterred by the notion that when you fight corruption, corruption would fight back. Yakubu Dogara, asked the federal government to focus more on improving the welfare of EFCC staff in order to insulate them from corruption.

"He forgot that he staged a coup d'etat in 1983, toppled a democratically-elected govt. and stole the Presidency and entire treasury".

"We were very proud in the Commonwealth when the President graced us by coming to the Tackling Corruption Together Conference in May, 2016, and he explained so graphically, the wisdom that comes from corruption". We have recovered funds in different currencies and, so far, we have recovered more than N500 billion.

He however maintained that, "we never intended, and we are not engaged in witch-hunts, but we are determined within the laws to call people to account".

"My first attempt to fight corruption, corruption fought back successfully".

"In 2018 alone, we have secured 89 convictions".

"It has become the norm".

This is another milestone in our determined and collective fight against corruption. We must CHANGE our ways of handling public trust.

Commonwealth Secretary-General, Patricia Scotland, has said Commonwealth assisted Nigeria in recovering around three billion dollars stolen from the treasury.

Dogara, who also expressed concern on the issue of Nigeria being labeled as "fantastically corrupt" said, "not all public officers are corrupt".

Making allusion from the Holy scriptures, the Speaker said "there is a representation of history, a prophet cried to God and said there was only one man that has not bowed his knees to Baal, but God replied to that prophet saying, that he has reserved several others in that city who have not bowed their knees to Baal".

"I call on the Judiciary and the National Assembly to join hands in this national effort, " he appealed.

As if the President's renewed sermon on anti-corruption is to prepare the road to 2019, the Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has dismissed threats by members of the New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) to exit the APC. "When I was appointed as acting chairman EFCC, I have always had the mind to bring this project to completion".

"We have recovered and are still recovering trillions of naira that were stolen in the past few years by people without conscience". I mean, if you saw the crowd that welcomed the President without the former governor, Kwankwaso. The president listed the Shuwarin overpass and DutseShuwarin-Kiyawa portion of the Kano-Maiduguri Expressway as well as the Dutse-Laraba highway extension, as part of areas in which Jigawa state has benefited from the federal government's commitment to infrastructure rejuvenation.

According to him, "If they are honest with themselves, they know that President Buhari will win those states, with or without them".
