Buhari is as corrupt as Abacha, says ex-governor Lamido

A former governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido, has described the President Muhammadu Buhari administration’s anti-corruption war as mere noise making.’
Lamido, who was also a minister of foreign affairs, said President Buhari could not be passed as a saint because he was “equally corrupt when he served under the late Head of State, Sani Abacha.”
Buhari had served as chairman of the defunct Petroleum Trust Fund, which was established by Abacha in 1994 to provide critical infrastructure across the country.
But the former Jigawa governor said, “He (Buhari) worked under Abacha; in fact, he was the closest to the late military ruler and when it comes to corruption, everybody knows where Abacha’s government stands.
“Buhari is just making noise and there’s no iota of truth in the so-called commitment to the improvement of security and halting graft in the country.”
Lamido, who said this while reacting to the recent discovery of huge amount of money in an apartment in Ikoyi, wondered why the anti-graft agency had yet to trace the real owner of the money.
“It’s unthinkable to say that the EFCC had discovered huge monies (nearly N15 billion) in a building (Osborne Towers) in Lagos, but could not track the real owner. Who leaked the story? Who did the source say is the owner of the find?
“No reasonable person will believe that there is no safe for the NIA (which claimed ownership) to keep its money, but a private residence in Lagos; those in position of authority should always have the courage to tell the led the truth because leadership is sacred.”
