There’s no corruption in Buhari’s presidency – Osinbajo

2 Min Read

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has claimed that the present crop of leaders in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari are not helping themselves to the nation’s resources.

According to Vanguard, Osinbajo said this recently when The Companion, an association of Muslim business professionals, paid a courtesy call on him in his office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said, “One thing that is very sure now, is that this presidency is not stealing and we have a President who is not stealing and will not steal. There is no corruption in the presidency under the current government. This kind of body language is what is saving this country a lot of money now. Like what is happening in JAMB, Customs, FIRS, NPA, FAAN, NIMASA where we have witnessed improved revenue collection and returns to govt for unspent resources. When we begin to deal with corruption in all facets of government particularly within the public sector, there will be a lot of improvement in our country. The government is also looking at improving ease of doing business to be able to attract more foreign direct investment over a period of time. All MDA’s will be made to submit their expenditure in line with the budget as well and in compliance with the accounting year”.

He accused the Goodluck Jonathan administration of supervising the worst form of looting that the country has ever experienced.

“The rot we met in office has never happened before. The previous government spent the whole reserves and even borrowed money which were distributed for election purposes. It has never happened in this country where the presidency directly takes money from the Central Bank to distribute to its cronies and where very few officials stole the country dry. This is the only nation where such can happen and the same party under whose watch it happened will still be clamouring to be returned to power,” he stated.
