PRESIDENT Buhari-led government has been commended for demonstrating the political will to fight the monster called corruption in Nigeria, as it has been a cog in the wheel of progress in all facets of life.
The Christian Conscience group made this commendation last week at the end of its monthly Central Working Committee meeting held in Lagos.
According to a release jointly signed by its National Chairman, Chief Enoch Ajiboso and the National Publicity Secretary, Tunji Oguntuase, the group noted with great joy the progress made so far by the government in its fight against corruption and further pledged to support the government in its fight against the menace with all its powers, especially with prayers.
“With all the revelations coming out everyday, Nigerians have come to know that huge sums of money meant to fight insurgency in the northern part of the country, as well as upgrade infrastructures across the country, were diverted and shared among political leaders in the last administration, all in their efforts to continue ruling at all cost, forgetting that it is only God that chooses whom He wants.
“The looting and diversion of these large sums of money would have been covered up or swept under the carpet, if not for God Almighty that enthroned the Buhari-led government,” it said.
The release further enjoined all Nigerians to be patient with the painstaking methodology being used by the government and it’s agencies to finger the looters and their accomplices, block further loopholes, as well as correct past mistakes.
“We are trusting God to give our present leaders wisdom from above to use the proceeds from the recovered looted funds for the betterment of the citizens.
