THE Global Youth Peace Empowerment and Development Initiative (OGYPEDI), has described the perceived failure to prosecute some high-profile corruption cases as a sad commentary of President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption stance.
The group in a statement by its National Coordinator, Mr. Japhet Omene and National Public Relatiosn Officer, Mr. Michael Ikpeghe urged the President to be decisive in the anti-corruption campaign, noting that those believed to be close to his administration should not be spared if found culpable of corrupt practices.
He said: ‘’ It is so disheartening to hear that Mr President only ordered the sack of former Secretary to the Federal Government instead of ordering his immediate prosecution. The former NIA boss was also treated in the same manner. The Aso Rock Clinic scandal is also another issue that embarrasses the government.
It is unfortunate that President Buhari has failed to put his government in order as the lack of coordination and infighting amongst his appointees and agencies under him has greatly undermined the fight against corruption. And it portends grave danger to good governance. The war against corruption must be clear and holistic.’’
