Former Anambra State Governor, Chimwoke Mbadinuju, has urged Nigerian to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war.
The chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) told journalists in Keffi at the weekend that what the president was doing was cleaning the mess of previous governments.
According to him, “It is clear that the president is not the cause of our political and economic problems but rather finding solutions of past and present problems we face.
“Former administrations brought the cankerworm and caterpillar of corruption, injustice, poor economy, cheating and looting. President Buhari has extended the loot recovery to former Yar’adua-Obasanjo era and this is extensive enough to curb graft and recover Nigeria’s stolen commonwealth.
“Corruption will die faster in Nigeria if we do away with avarice, inordinate ambition, political ostentation, greed, cheating and the likes.”
“The president has travelled extensively but not for himself but for the Nigerian people. This travels to Europe, the United States, France, Malta and some other African countries were done to help our national situation and today Nigeria is better for those diplomatic travels.
“Just like Shakespeare said “folks who put the pipper to passion will see the pipper pipe after another fashion,” Nigerians should applaud President Buhari on this path to prosperity.
“Every well-meaning Nigerian can agree with me that President Buhari’s decision to opt for Minister of Petroleum was to right the wrongs of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Nigeria as whole. This is a master-stroke that is certainly good for Nigeria”, he noted.
Mbadinuju was Governor of Anambra State in Nigeria from 29 May 1999 to 29 May 2003, elected on the People’s Democratic Party platform. His period in office was noted for internal PDP disputes resulting in a failure of effective government.
