Archbishop Emeritus, Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, Anthony Cardinal Okogie, has praised President Muhammadu Buhari for his commitment to ridding the country of corruption.

Okogie praised Buhari in Lagos on Tuesday at a news conference organised as part of activities to mark his 80 years birthday celebration and 50 years priestly ordination anniversary.

“I want to commend the president for his commitment to clean the polity.

“There is also the need for him to be more systematic in the fight so that even after he leaves office the structure in place would make it difficult for corruption to thrive.

“There have been complaints by members of the opposing party that the fight has been selective and only targeted at PDP.

“The President must respond to this pro-actively by allowing the Economic and Crimes Commission (EFCC) to work independently, based on the facts and figures at their disposal.

“It does not matter the party the accused belongs to. Anyone found wanting should be made to face the music.

“That is the only way the President can prove that he belongs to all and to no one.’’

The cleric called on the Federal Government to engage the services of technocrats towards rebuilding the country.

“No one knows it all; I feel that the present administration needs more technocrats to help in the task of rebuilding Nigeria.
“The economy in particular needs the inputs of tested experts.

“There is no shame in seeking for help in order to formulate policies that would attract the much needed inflow of foreign investors that would shore up our economic fortunes.

“The President should borrow a leaf from the past administrations, who injected experienced hands that made all the difference and turned us into the investment port of choice in Africa.’’

Okogie said the task of building a vibrant nation deserved the involvement of every Nigerian.

“The task of building a viable nation is one that calls for the involvement of every one of us. As it is said, evil thrives when good person stay aloof.

“We must therefore continue to hold our nation accountable. The days of impunity are over. We must prove to the international community that there are good people amongst us; that are not corrupt as some believe.

“We must call our leaders to order when they err and commend them when the need arise. One year is already gone, just after another year, the race for 2019 will commence in earnest.

“What become of them then will be greatly decided by how well they are able to galvanize the nation out of its present predicament, we are watching.’’

He also appealed to the government to address the attacks by Fulani herdsmen, quell the agitation for Biafra, alleviate the sufferings of Nigerians and apply caution in solving the restiveness in the Niger Delta. (NAN)

Calling wide scale economic sabotage restiveness in the ND is the height of trivializing a potential poverty aggravating issue. It is better to speak honestly about issues than to play to the gallery, yes APC members who are found to have corruptly enriched themselves with government money should be prosecuted and jailed, but not calling for prosecuting criminals being funded by Tompolo to evade arrest is no different than his accusation of unfairness. He seems to even have a softer view on the NDA than Eyebugs fools who he calls for their quelling, beerfraud is a useless agitation indeed grin grin grin grin grin

The current fight against corruption is not sustainable. PMB is after those who have stolen while an unimaginable fraud is going on under him.

A part of his brain tells him that the DGs and Perm Secs and his ministers are saints but terrible fraud and corruption is going on.

I say this as a government contractor. My documents have not been signed because I have not done the needful. Truth is, He needs to look inwards.

people are stealing. many are insecure that he may re-shuffle them anytime and so looting the little made available.

PMB is the only one fighting corruption, all the men around him are not and that's why it wont last.

Fight corruption through institutional frame work and not as an individual.

If PMB dies today (God forbid) the fight against corruption ends with him.

Those of you who say IstandWithBuhari are also not helping him. it should be IstandForNigeria. That's patriotism, you will support mr president and also criticise him when he errs.

Let me say it for the umpteenth time, force in Niger Delta will not work. people are suffering, revolution fuelled by starvation is brewing gradually. PMB should consult widely and approach the Delta with tact.

those guys will ground Nigeria to Minus zero.

I don't know if the corruption fight is just to the selected few or not but I think the fight against corruption should be far and wide to anybody involved so as for it not to be seen as a lopsided thing

“The President must respond to this pro-actively by allowing the Economic and Crimes Commission (EFCC) to work independently, based on the facts and figures at their disposal.
Buhari would never allow that to happen. He sees EFCC as his instrument of vengeance. The first person Buhari targeted was Dasuki, for daring to arrest him in 1985.
