‘Can you fight one person and say you’re fighting corruption?’ | Tanko Yakasai asks a salient question

Elder statesman and northern political heavyweight, Dr Tanko Yakasai, says the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is not fighting a war against corruption.

Yakasai was reportedly implicated by Tony Anenih for receiving N63 million from the N250million he allegedly received from the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

Yakasai described the anti-corruption efforts of the federal government as a ‘propaganda fight’, noting that thus far, it was only targeted at Dasuki and those associated with him.

The Chairman of the Northern Elders’ Council,while speaking to Vanguard, stated that President Buhari’s corruption war can only be taken serious if no one is exempted and every corrupt person is prosecuted.

“The Federal Government of Nigeria is only fighting Sambo Dasuki. Should the fight against corruption begin and end with Dasuki? Is he the only “corrupt” person? Till today, they have not even started his case in the court. He was granted bail twice and they refused to let him go. This is not a fight against corruption. It is a propaganda fight.

“They even convinced people like Prof. Wole Soyinka who now believes that there is a fight against corruption, but there is no such thing. Otherwise, how many people have they arrested?

“All the people that are arrested today are connected with Dasuki. No other person has been picked. What of the governors, ministers, top civil servants and local government officials? Can you fight one person and say you are fighting corruption?”
