‘Probe Obasanjo, Atiku, others,’ LP urges President

The call was made on Tuesday, August 11, 2015 by LP Chairman, Abdulkadir Abdulsalam in reaction to Buhari’s announcement that looters of Nigeria’s treasury would soon be prosecuted.

 

The Labour Party (LP) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to extend his corruption probe to the governments of former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, his Vice, Atiku Abubakar and Senate President, Bukola Saraki among others.

The call was made on Tuesday, August 11, 2015 by LP Chairman, Abdulkadir Abdulsalam in reaction to Buhari’s announcement that looters of Nigeria’s treasury would soon be prosecuted.

Abdulsalam said:

“I want to state that it (probe) is a welcome idea and development in our fight against corruption, but the fundamental question is; what are the pragmatic mechanisms put in place by the Buhari administration and the APC to fight corruption. What is the blueprint?”

“If former Governor James Ibori is still languishing in jail in Great Britain, then governors who served and are known to have looted this country, in whatever political party, should not be spared.”

Buhari had said earlier that the probe would be focused on the Goodluck Jonathan administration.
