President Buhari will not resign over EFCC, NDDC probe – Lai Mohammed

The Federal Government has said President Buhari will not resign from office over alleged cases of corruption in Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund(NSITF), and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Last week, the chairman of Peoples Democratic Party of Nigeria Uche Secondus, called on President Buhari to resign over the numerous corruption cases in many of the government agencies as well as the high level of insecurity in many parts of the country.  Secondus said the ongoing corruption investigations of the NDDC, MIC, NEDC, NSITF, EFCC, and other government agencies, are pointers to the fact that the country under President Buhari’s watch, is on ventilator gasping for breath.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja today Tuesday, July 28, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said the call for President Buhari’s resignation was ”infantile”.

Dismissing claims that the anti-corruption war of the Buhari administration was waning, Lai Mohammed dared anyone with a contrary opinion to try the government and see what will happen. 

“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. 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.” he said
