Ex-governor of Jigawa state, Sule Lamido, has described the President Muhammadu Buhari led war against corruption as a mere ruse.

Lamido made this known during an interview with the Hausa service of the BBC.

Lamido had wondered how a man who worked under late Sani Abacha, the military dictator, could effectively fight corruption.

He (Buhari) worked under Abacha; in fact he was the closest to the late military ruler and when it comes to corruption, everybody knows where Abacha’s government stands,” Lamido said.

Continuing, Lamido said: “Buhari is just making noise; there’s no iota of truth in the so-called commitment to the improvement of security and halting graft in the country.”

Abacha had appointed Buhari as chairman of the then Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF).
