Anti-graft war not one-sided – FG

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Isi­aka Wak­ili

Vice Pres­i­dent Yemi Os­in­bajo says it is en­tirely ab­surd of any­one to in­sin­u­ate that the on­go­ing anti-cor­rup­tion war is one-sided.

The vice pres­i­dent said those al­leg­ing par­ti­san­ship in the fight against cor­rup­tion ob­vi­ously wanted to triv­i­alise a very im­por­tant pro­gramme of the fed­eral gov­ern­ment.

He also said the in­sin­u­a­tions were aimed at triv­i­al­iz­ing Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari’s “strong ef­forts” to­wards re­cov­er­ing huge stolen funds.

Os­in­bajo, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment by his spokesman, Laolu Akande, yesterday said this in Kigali, Rwanda, on Mon­day while ad­dress­ing jour­nal­ists af­ter the just­con­cluded sum­mit of the African Union.

De­scrib­ing the in­sin­u­a­tions as un­founded and base­less, the vice pres­i­dent ex­plained that the gov­ern­ment looked at cor­rup­tion from all pos­si­ble facets.
