The Federal Government has confirmed that the anti-graft war of President Muhammadu Buhari is on course.
It said the President Muhammadu will not resign because of the alleged infractions in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The government described the call for Buhari’s resignation by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as infantile.
According to it, the development in the identified agencies shows that there is no sacred cow in the fight against graft.
“Unlike the PDP, the APC government will not cover up for anyone,” the government said it was illogical to conclude that the anti-corruption war was waning because of the alleged isolated corrupt practices in some Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).
According to the government, the war against graft is blind to party affiliation, position in government and any other consideration.
Information, Culture and Tourism Minister Lai Mohammed stated the government position at a briefing in Abuja against the backdrop of insinuations that the Buhari administration was losing grip on the war against corruption.
The minister said although the allegation of corrupt practices in NDDC was not new, the Buhari administration put up a faster speed in addressing it.
Mohammed said: “As you are all aware, Nigerians have recently been inundated with allegations of monumental corruption in a number of government agencies, including the NDDC, NSITF and the anti-corruption agency, EFCC.
“Many, especially naysayers, have misinterpreted these developments as a sign that the administration’s fight against corruption is waning.
