Buhari’s Administration has no concrete plans to fight corruption- Rafsanjani

NEWS DIGEST – The Executive Director of Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC), Comrade Auwal Musa Rafsanjani has said the President Muhammadu Buhari’s Administration has no plan to fight corruption in the country.

This was made known in an interview with Arise TV.

In his words, he said: “Nigeria overrated and overexpected Buhari’s Administration to fight against corruption. There was never any blueprint for fighting against corruption.

“It was more of propaganda and deception to fight against corruption. 7 years after there’s no tangible plan from the side of the government to fight corruption.

“There are key indicators that shows a country is ready to fight corruption but Nigeria doesn’t exhibit none of the indicators. Part of indicators are: 1) Public Procurement Law, 2) Law of Contracts, 3) Freedom of Information, 4) Whistleblowing, 5) Desperate to recover money stolen from looters.

“In 2017, we were hosted by British and America in a conference and were taught how to recover assets and we were given blueprints but after the conference when we got back to Nigeria nothing has been done even after putting much pressure. The Attorney General and his assistants couldn’t account for the assets recovered.

“Attack on media houses points at the fight against corruption been a deception and ineffective to fight. In Nigeria when a law enforcement arrest those who squander money they tend to release them the following day and which is now rampant especially in the Political sphere. There is a high level of Political corruption, vote buying and the likes,” he added.
