The former Governor of Abia state, Orji Kalu has dared President Buhari to arrest former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

According to the former Governor, Obasanjo took away our $16million electricity money.

Independent News also reports that Kalu said the arrest of OBJ will prove to Nigerians that Buhari is really fighting corruption.

The former Governor said this while speaking at the quarterly public lecture series of National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO).

He also said “My prosecution is political. Our accounts in Abia state were transparent under my watch. The US knows, the UK knows. I have been given a red carpet in these two countries. I have been given a red carpet in China. In fact, I am stronger in fighting corruption than President Buhari because he is not fighting it well”.

“I have recovered peoples’ money and given them back. I am a creator of wealth at every level. If any court finds me to be corrupt , it should jail me. Corruption is the bane of this country.

“A corrupt judge and corrupt politician is worst than armed robber.

“Nigerians should start electing presidents that have meaning and gut to take decisions.

“President Buhari has got some guts but he should arrest Obasanjo for us to know that corruption is working.

“Without arresting Obasanjo, he has not started fighting corruption because Obasanjo took away our $16million electricity money. So, unless he arrests Obasanjo, corruption is not being fought in Nigeria.”

Obasanjo fires Buhari

You will recall that former President, Olusegun Obasanjo recently criticised President Muhammadu Buhari for his administration's handling of the fight against corruption.

Obasanjo said the president's anti-corruption fight has been polluted by people in his inner circle being smeared in corruption allegations themselves.
