Don’t Give Up On Fight Against Corruption, Maitama Sule Tells Buhari
A former Nigerian Ambassador to the United States, Dr Yusuf Maitama Sule, Danmasanin Kano, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to give up in the ongoing fight against corruption.
Danmasani, who made the call at the official commissioning of NIPOST Anti-Corruption Stamp in Kano yesterday, said fighting corruption was not an easy task.
“Corruption is found everywhere because not only financial people tend to engage in corrupt practices in their social activities. Government should ensure confiscating of all looted money from whoever steals it. After collecting the money, government can even allow them to go,” he said.
In his remarks, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje said no society could develop without fighting corruption among its citizenry.
“Because of the ongoing fight against corruption embarked upon by President Muhammadu Buhari, Nigerian’s image abroad has tremendously improved. We have all witnessed the discoveries of trillions of naira by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) since the assumption of Buhari-led government,” he said.
Chairman of the commission, Muhuyi Magaji Rimin Gado, said the commission had recorded successes in the fight against corruption in the state since the assumption of Ganduje-led government.
