    President Buhari Debunks Claims of Shielding Corrupt Members of His Administration

    President Muhammadu Buhari, has encouraged persons or organisations with any evidence of corrupt practices against members of his government to come forward with such evidences to him for prompt action.

    The president gave the challenge at a town hall meeting tagged: ‘The Candidates’ organised by the MacArthur Foundation, in collaboration with NTA and DARIA Media in Abuja on Wednesday night.

    President Buhari was fielding questions on the allegations that the government’s anti-corruption crusade was skewed against a section of Nigerians, and that members of the governing All Progressives Congress, APC, with questionable credentials were being protected by his administration.

    The Moderator of the programme Kadaria Ahmed, specifically cited the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation Babachir Lawal, who was relieved of his appointment over allegations of corrupt practices, but was not prosecuted, instead he had been seen campaigning for the president.

    Nonetheless, President Buhari said: “That is not fair criticism of the government. I do not think there is anybody that is being pointed out as corrupt in this dispensation which we looked the other direction."
