IBB Responds to Buhari’s Allegation, Threatens to Expose His Corrupt Past
Former President Ibrahim Babangida has responded to the allegation by former Head of State and Presidential Candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC in the 2011 general elections, General Muhammed Buhari that he institutionalized corruption in Nigeria and threatened to expose his corruption particularly during his tenure as Minister of Petroleum.
Buhari had in an address to leaders and members of CPC led by House of Representative member from Funtua/Dandume Federal Constituency of Katsina State, Hon. Mansur Abdulkadir who paid him a courtesy visit in Kaduna on Monday asked Nigerians to blame the trio of IBB, Obasanjo and Jonathan for institutionalizing corruption in Nigeria, particularly the country’s oil wealth, a development he said is manifest in the security challenges facing the nation.
Babangida who released a statement through his media adviser, Prince Kassim Afegbua said, “On Gen. Buhari, it is not in IBB’s tradition to take up issues with his colleague former President. But for the purpose of record, we are conversant with Gen. Buhari’s so-called holier-than-thou attitude.
“He is a one-time Minister of Petroleum and we have good records of his tenure as minister. Secondly, he also presided over the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) which records we also have. We challenge him to come out with clean hands in those two portfolios he headed. Or, we will help him to expose his. “records of performance during those periods. Those who live in glass houses do not throw stones. Gen. Buhari should be properly guided.”
