Buhari Vows To Jail Corrupt Politicians by Ayekotoo(m): 11:32pm On Jan 06, 2015
The All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Major-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has assured Nigerians that all corrupt politicians will end up in jail once he is elected into power.
Buhari, who gave the assurance on Tuesday
during the APC rally and the presentation of the
party’s flag to Umana Umana as its
governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom State in
Uyo, said he would block all loopholes through
which money was being siphoned out of the
country.
“When we come into power, anyone who steals
Nigeria’s money will end up in Kirikiri Maximum
Prisons. We are going to make sure that
Nigeria’s wealth belongs only to Nigerians,” he
said.
He decried the nation’s over-dependence on
oil, saying the country would not have faced
the current economic downturn if the country
had invested in agriculture.
According to Buhari, Nigeria used to export tin
and columbite, but all of a sudden stopped
producing and exporting these minerals with
the hope that the country has oil.
On the power sector, Buhari stated that many
industries had shut down operation because of
epileptic power supply, adding that Nigerian
producers were unable to compete in
international market because of huge cost of
generating power.
Buhari, a former Head of State, assured
Nigerians that his government would create
over three million jobs yearly to take care of
the teeming youths, who are unemployed.
Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, who
is also the Director General, Muhammadu
Buhari Campaign Organisation, said he was
ashamed to read on the pages of newspapers a
claim by the Peoples Democratic Party that
things had continued to improve in Nigeria from
2011.
He added that governors decided that the
excess crude fund be shared, when the
governors noticed that the account continued to
deplete each passing month.
Amaechi said, “I was ashamed to read on the
pages of newspapers where PDP said things
had improved from 2011 till now.
“Oil price used to be between $120 and $145
before now. Our savings used to be between
$45 and $46bn. We had over $10bn to $20bn in
excess crude. The reason why the governors
asked that excess crude money be shared was
that after each meeting we had, if the money
was $10bn, before we come back for another
meeting, it would be $8bn. Who has taken the
$2bn? We did not know.
“When we discovered that our money was
being taken away with reckless abandon
without accounting, it was then we asked, ‘Oga,
please share this money. You are not a bank,
and if it were a bank, they would add more to
the money’.
“During (the late President Umaru) Yar’Adua
and (a former President Olusegun) Obasanjo,
oil subsidy used to be N300bn, but under our
current president, it is N2.3trn and over.”

In this present dispensation, corruption is rewarded and celebrated, it is even an offence for u not to be corrupt. Our dear president killed ICPC and EFCC. In the last 6 years, can anyone tell me anyone that has been investigated and prosecuted due to corruption offences?

Yes there must be rule of law and other. The finger that err must be made to face the music. People don’t dare steal transformers and cables that belong to the
public and come back to sell same to the public again. A country where an individual or group of officials will pocket pensioners claims and no serious action follow to serve as a deterrent to others. Just to mention
some of the vices beclouding the nation. Judgement is at hand. What goes up must come down. Enough is enough.

Hence he will have my vote. I pity GEJ. I just hope and pray he is smart enough to start renovating the prisons. He may be doing himself a lot of good by doing so.
