OBJ introduced corruption to Nigeria – Sen. Waku

Former Chairman, Senate Committee on Water Resources, Senator Joseph Waku, on Tuesday said President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption will be incomplete without probing former President Olusegun Obasanjo

Waku said the president should either probe Obasanjo or forget about his current war against corruption in the country.

Waku said this while speaking with  journalists on the sidelines of the ongoing Annual General Assembly of the Arewa Consultative Forum on Tuesday in Kaduna.

He said President Buhari’s fight against corruption won’t be taken seriously by Nigerians if Obasanjo was not probed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

He said, “Look, I am 70 years old now and have been in this game for more than 50 years.

“Therefore, there is no way I can just look at sum totality of what people are saying about corruption and believe it as it has been reported to me. If I have an investigating mechanism, I know that this accusation is real obviously.

“I have access to authority. I have access to Mr. President. I told Mr. President that this corruption probe of past regimes, if you don’t probe Obasanjo, then you haven’t done anything yet. Corruption in Nigeria was introduced by Obasanjo.”

The APC chieftain insisted that without Buhari, the ruling party will lose the 2019 general election.

He said the party’s victory in 2015 came as a result of the candidate it fielded.
