Senator Shehu Sani (APC) representing Kaduna Central in the senate has told the Buhari led government to remove politics from its anti-corruption war. Sani said this while speaking at the 8th Forum of the laureates of Nigerian National Order of Merit in Abuja December 1st.
“Corruption has consequences as seen in the arrest of those in charge of security in the last administration. Insurgency is for some industry, business enterprise and means of making money.
Even Governors would say they allocate hundreds of millions to security but when you go there you won’t find anything. They say because of allocation to security they can build schools. So it is for all of us to see why we have not won the war against insurgency and why people are killed because of corruption. Politics mixed with corruption will take us nowhere. It is only in Nigeria that one says because somebody has contributed to the success of the ruling party, corruption charges should be withdrawn against him. But if he falls out of favour tomorrow, then, EFCC will bring up the remaining charges. If Saraki is tried for falsely declaring his assets since 2003, CCB should do same to all others who served in that era. Many issues that have to do with laws are stained by politics and they lose their credibility” he said
