[NG]Nigerians urged to join Buhari’s anti-corruption drive

The Sustainable Nigerian Movement (SNIM) has called on all Nigerians to join and participate actively in the anti corruption drive of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration. The National Leader of SNIM, Arimoro Kayode, stated this yesterday during a news conference in Abuja.
Kayode said that corruption will continue to plague if well meaning Nigerians just sit and watch those who have hijacked the fight for their selfish gains to continue to be the driving force of the society. He said that the menace seems to be thriving in spite of the Federal Government’s efforts to fight corruption, non has been convicted of corruption crime, even though it is glaring that most of the officials accused of corruption are truly guilty of it.
“We have noticed that the government’s efforts in reducing corruption have been hijacked by those that should indeed protect the people as seen in the bills the Senate passed to alter the workings of the CCT and CCB, and the action against the whistle blower Hon Jibrin in the lower chamber.
“The judiciary and the legislative arm have formed a cartel which ensures that the anti corruption war remains a charade unless those who truly own the power do the needful. We demand that sitting allowances of Senators and House of representatives shall only be paid for passing bills that affect the lives of citizens positively after three results,” he said.
The group also called for an end to the ethno religious crisis ravaging the country, saying they are politically motivated to distract Nigerians. “The effect of corruption cannot be separated from the actions of the insurgents, the killing of innocent individuals in the name of religion, the continuous suffering of the IDP’s despite funds being released to take care of them, lack of electricity and high inflation,” he said.
