The Federal Government has said it has not relented in her fight against corruption and that if anyone, especially the opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) think otherwise, they should dare and see.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said this in Abuja on Tuesday, noting that Nigerians have been murmuring about the dept of corruption that is present in some 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.”
“President Muhammadu Buhari, the African Union’s Anti-Corruption Champion, who also has an impeccable reputation globally, remains the driver of the fight and no one, not the least the PDP under whose watch Nigeria was looted dry, can taint his image or reverse the gains of the fight.”
“Anyone who disagrees that the anti-corruption fight is alive and well is free to dare us.”
