DSS ar­rests Zam­fara speaker, dep, oth­ers over plot to im­peach Gov Yari

Daily Trust - - ONLINE REACTIONS -

Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari promised to fight cor­rup­tion dur­ing his cam­paigns and so far his gov­ern­ment is com­mend­ably do­ing just that. How­ever, honourable mem­bers of the Zam­fara State House of As­sem­bly have ap­par­ently seen a clear case of cor­rup­tion by the ex­ec­u­tive arm of their state gov­ern­ment un­der Gov­er­nor Ab­du­lAziz Yari, which they have clearly stated in this re­port. Ac­cord­ing to them, fail­ure to im­ple­ment the bud­get, mis­ap­pro­pri­a­tion and mis­ap­pli­ca­tion of funds had been go­ing on for the past five years.

Now, as it is their duty to do so as spec­i­fied by the Nige­rian con­sti­tu­tion they re­solved to call the gov­er­nor to or­der, whether by im­peach­ment or what­ever, means but agents of the same gov­ern­ment that touts it­self as fight­ing cor­rup­tion have now ar­rested the honourable mem­bers, ob­vi­ously be­cause as leader of the gov­er­nors fo­rum, Gov­er­nor Yari is pre­sum­ably in the good books of the gov­ern­ment. Even the Honourable Speaker who was at­tacked by hood­lums was ar­rested rather than pro­tected, as ex­pected, from them. One won­ders whether these same se­cu­rity agents would have raised a fin­ger if the im­peach­ment threat hap­pened to have oc­curred in a state be­long­ing to an op­po­si­tion party. S. A.

I thought that APC gov­ern­ment is so clean that their lead­ers are above board. But see what is hap­pen­ing in Zam­fara State where the sit­ting gov­er­nor is be­ing ac­cused of cor­rup­tion and is be­ing threat­ened with im­peach­ment. This is Naija. Auta ab­egyeisaac@ya­hoo.com
