How Obasanjo Introduced Corruption Into Nigeria – Former Senator
A former Chairman, Senate Committee on Water Resources, Senator Joseph Waku, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to either probe former President Olusegun Obasanjo or forget about his ongoing anti-corruption war.
He said this on Tuesday at the Annual General Assembly of the Arewa Consultative Forum in Kaduna.
Waku said: “Look, I am 70 years old now and have been in this game for more than 50 years.
“Therefore, there is no way I can just look at some totality of what people are saying about corruption and believe it as it has been reported to me. If I have an investigating mechanism, I know that this accusation is real obviously.
“I have access to authority. I have access to Mr. President. I told Mr. President that this corruption probe of past regimes, if you don’t probe Obasanjo, then you haven’t done anything yet. Corruption in Nigeria was introduced by Obasanjo,” he said.
Waku said the party won the last election because most of the politicians on the platform of the APC held strong to Buhari’s honesty to win the 2015 election, noting that the party wouldn’t have won that election in the first place.
