‘President needs our help to build a new Nigeria,’ Igbokwe says

Igbokwe made the call on Wednesday, March 16, 2016 via an article titled, “Wanted: Real men and women to help Nigeria.”

President Muhammadu Buhari

The article, which was published on online news platform, Sahara Reporters, reads:

“President Buhari needs our help to build a new Nigeria. I want committed, decent, honest men and women of deep character to stand up for Nigeria. I know millions of Nigerians out there are silently praying for this President to succeed.”

“I want this men and women to rise up for a change. Leaders of the PDP and their cronies have amassed enough wealth in the past 16 years and they can use this to bring down the system if we permit it. We sleep all the time but the looters are awake every hour.”

“They need to be defeated and crushed. They are fighting in our various courts, they are fighting in the National Assembly, they are fighting in the local governments and the markets. Corruption must not defeat President Buhari. He loves Nigeria. He is honest and has integrity.”

“After nine months, my eyes have seen a lot and my ears have heard enough to believe that leaders of the PDP have no conscience. It was a big scramble for the leaders of PDP to take everything within their reach. They stole dollars and naira in billions and trillions.”

“No wonder nothing is left to even pay the salaries of workers. I did not see any road project in Nigeria in 16 years. There was no serious investment in modern infrastructure – good roads, bridges, resorts and high-speed rail projects. There was no serious investment in security, education, health, agriculture, transportation, human resources etc. It has been a case of looters take it all.”

Buhari has repeatedly vowed that his government would not spare persons found guilty of corrupt practices.
