Senator-elect, Dino Melaye, has said that President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration is the most corrupt in Nigeria’s history.

Melaye, a former House of Representatives member, also called Jonathan a ‘promoter of corruption.’

The Senator-elect made the comments during an interview with Premium Times.

“Jonathan is the promoter of corruption. I am telling you that the Government of Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan is the most corrupt in Nigerian history but (who) we have as president-elect of this country today (Muhammadu Buhari); the man I see as the nemesis of corruption,” Melaye said.

“Change! I am an advocate of anti-corruption and for me if I enter office, I am going to do it more this time around. More importantly, now that we have a government that is going to have zero tolerance for corruption, we must as legislators carry out our functions from any form of sacrifice,” he added.

“Either at the national assembly, we will be drastically checked. Legislators need to check if they are on the side of the people or side of their pockets. They must be content because you have to live a life of sacrifice,” Melaye said.

“If we supervise the MDAs, N3billion will not be budgeted for the travels of Mr. President in a year. Where is the president going? Is he the supervisor of the world?” the Senator-elect asked.

Jonathan will hand over to President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, May 29, 2015.
