Stakeholders Says Buhari’s Administration Worsen Corruption


Anti-Corruption stakeholders in Nigeria say President Muhammadu Buhari’s eight years administration worsened corruption in the country.

The stakeholders made this known at the weekend in Lagos during a summit with the theme: “Assessing the fight against corruption under President Buhari (2015-2023),” organised by Human and Environmental Development Agenda (HEDA) Resource Centre.

Executive Secretary of HEDA, Sulaimon Arigbabu said that in the last eight years of Buhari’s administration, didn’t meet need to fight against corruption but ended up being an endemic. He said: “We have seen a lot of things that show that there is no sincerity in the fight against corruption. The fight against corruption has been worse.

“By the time President Muhammadu Buhari leaves office, not too much would have been achieved in the fight against corruption.
“Until we start to become a society where people don’t get away with things that are evil, the level of impunity will be reduced. It is impunity that makes corruption so pervasive. We need to be a country that sees certain things as a taboo and whoever does it, would face the wrought. We must be a society of consequences.”

However, HEDA Chairman, Suraju Olanrewaju, has called for the creation of a robust legal framework that would facilitate prosecution of corrupt individuals, and the strengthening of anti-corruption institutions to enable them carry out their mandates effectively in the country.
