The poster language of the APC campaign during the 2015 elections, was “war against corruption”.
And the “war”… two years on…we are yet to get a conviction.
The President has made it known, that he will never support any act of corruption in his administration, no matter who is involved, including his family members. This shows his zero tolerance for corruption.
Currently, there is a test for the federal government’s anti-corruption campaign that should be well handled to save the face of this administration, even though it has not managed the initial ones well.
The federal government has been silent on the allegations against the Inspector General of Police, the same way it was silent on the former SGF’s case, until he was later suspended.
Senator Isah Misau, representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, in the upper chamber of the National Assembly alleged that the IGP pockets N120 Billion annually, from special security provided by officers of the Nigerian Police Force.
As grievous as these allegations are, the federal government is saying nothing, neither is the EFCC taking any step to investigate the matter. There is a growing feeling among the populace that the anti-corruption campaign is one-sided – an allegation that has been denied by the government.
The allegation by Senator Misau is a test on the commitment of the Buhari administration to deliver on its promises to stamp out corruption and must be treated with all sense of urgency.
