You are the Problem, not Nigeria System Atiku Replies Buhari


The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to a statement by President Muhammadu Buhari on the occasion of a Christmas homage paid on him by members of the Federal Capital Territory community in which he blamed his inability to fight corruption on the Nigerian system.

Atiku in a statement on Wednesday disagreed with the President, saying the President lacks political will to fight corruption. “I disagree. The system has challenges, yes, but where there is political will, the system can make progress”.

The candidate of the PDP said during his tenure as the VP of Nigeria from 1999 to 2007 that same system what was used to convict Inspector General of Police, and several others including cabinet ministers and other high officials.

The former vice president further wondered why the president is romancing government officials who are fingered in corruption cases.

“The system allows you to arrest, try and convict your former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, who was fingered in a major corruption case, but you chose to let him go Scot free and you demonstrated your tolerance for his corruption by giving him a prominent role in your re-election campaign and recently welcoming him to the Presidential Villa with open arms”

“The system allowed you to arrest, try and convict Abdulrasheed Maina, the biggest ever alleged thief in our civil service history, who is suspected of looting the pensions of millions of aged Nigerians. Yet you chose not to go that route, preferring instead to recall him, reinstate and double promote him while giving him armed guards to move about.

“The system allows you to probe the $25 billion NNPC contracts awarded without due process, but you chose to bury the matter under the carpet, hoping the Nigerian people will forget about that grand scale alleged looting exposed by a leaked memo form a member of your cabinet,” he stated.
