Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed has come out to say that anyone who feels the President Muhammadu Buhari anti-corruption war is ineffective is free to dare the government.

He recently revealed that the fight against corruption remains a vital part of this government and it is alive and well.

According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari is still the driver of the fight and no one will be allowed to dent his image or reverse the gains of the battle.

He added that the fight against corruption does not consider party affiliation, position in government, or any other thing.

His words, “As you are all aware, Nigerians have recently been inundated with allegations of monumental corruption in a number of government agencies, including the NDDC, NSITF and the anti-corruption agency, EFCC,”

“Many, especially naysayers, have misinterpreted these developments as a sign that the administration’s fight against corruption is waning. In fact, the main opposition PDP has latched on to the developments to call for the resignation of Mr. President, a call that is nothing but infantile!

“Let me state here and now that the fight against corruption, a cardinal programme of this administration, is alive and well.

“President Muhammadu Buhari, the African Union’s anti-corruption champion, who also has an impeccable reputation globally, remains the driver of the fight and no one, not least the PDP under whose watch Nigeria was looted dry, can taint his image or reverse the gains of the fight.

“Anyone who disagrees that the anti-corruption fight is alive and well is free to dare us.

“What the revelations of the past few weeks, especially the investigation of the nation’s anti-corruption czar, have shown is that this administration is not ready to sweep any allegation of corruption under the carpet; that there is no sacred cow in this fight, and that– unlike the PDP – we will not cover up for anyone, including the members of our party and government, who face corruption allegations.

“Our fight against corruption is blind to party affiliation, position in government and any other consideration. If the nation’s anti-corruption czar can be investigated, then the fight against corruption cannot be deemed to be fake, neither can it be said to be waning.”
