You need to arrest Obasanjo to show that you are truly fighting corruption - Kalu tells Buhari

You need to arrest Obasanjo to show that you are truly fighting corruption - Kalu tells Buhari

A former governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, has reportedly asked President Mohammadu Buhari to arrest and prosecute Olusegun Obasanjo for corruption as proof of his seriousness in his war against the challenge.

Vanguard reports that Kalu tasked Buhari to take this action at the quarterly public lecture series of National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO) in Abuja.

According to him, President Buhari should be bold enough to prove that he has the guts expected of him to salvage Nigeria from bad governance.

He said the president should do this by arresting Olusegun Obasanjo, a former president, over alleged missing funds meant for power under his government.

Unless Obasanjo is arrested, he said, Buhari’s government will not be considered to be fighting corruption.

“My prosecution is political. Our accounts in Abia state were transparent under my watch. The US knows, the UK knows. I have been given a red carpet in these two countries.

“I have been given a red carpet in China. In fact, I am stronger in fighting corruption than President Buhari because he is not fighting it well.

“I have recovered peoples’ money and given them back. I am a creator of wealth at every level. If any court finds me to be corrupt, it should jail me. Corruption is the bane of this country.

“A corrupt judge and corrupt politician is worst than armed rubber.”

“Nigerians should start electing presidents that have meaning and gut to take decisions. President Buhari has got some guts but he should arrest Obasanjo for us to know that corruption is working.

“Without arresting Obasanjo, he has not started fighting corruption because Obasanjo took away our $16 million electricity money. So, unless he arrests Obasanjo, corruption is not being fought in Nigeria," he said.

We earlier learnt that President Muhammadu Buhari recently said he had been able to do his best since he got to power in 2015.

Daily Trust reports that the president in a statement issued by his senior special assistant on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, said this at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja on Thursday, March 8, while receiving a delegation from King Salman of Saudi Arabia.
