Buhari worked under Abacha… His anti-corruption war is false – Lamido

by Dolapo Adelana

Former Jigawa Governor, Sule Lamido has dismissed the anti-graft war of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Lamido, who spoke in an interview with the BBC Hausa Service Wednesday said Buhari had nothing to offer as he worked under General Sani Abacha.

Buhari was chairman of the defunct Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) established by Abacha in 1994 to provide critical infrastructure across the country.

“He (Buhari) worked under Abacha; in fact he was the closest to the late military ruler and when it comes to corruption, everybody knows where Abacha’s government stands.

“Buhari is just making noise; there’s no iota of truth in the so-called commitment to the improvement of security and halting graft in the country,” he said.

On the recent discovery in Ikoyi by the EFCC, Lamido said, “It’s unthinkable to say that the EFCC had discovered huge monies (nearly N15 billion) in a building (Osborne Towers) in Lagos but could not track the real owner; who leaked the story? Who did the source say is the owner of the find?

“No reasonable person will believe that there is no safe for the NIA (which claimed ownership) to keep its money but a private residence in Lagos; those in position of authority should always have the courage to tell the led the truth because leadership is sacred,” he said.
