A non-governmental organisation, Edo state Civil Society Organisations (EDOCSO), has urged Nigerians to take the anti-corruption fight as their personal project in order to put an end to the scourge.
Coordinator General of the group, Comrade Omobude Agho, who stated this at an event he organised to mark this year’s Anti-Corruption Day, alleged that a new set of treasure looters had emerged under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
The event has as its theme: “United Against Corruption.”
Omobude regretted the case “where the president of the country commissions more than three world-class hospitals and yet seek medicare abroad.”
According to him, “we want Nigerians to take the anti corruption fight away from the statuesque and make it a Nigerian people’s project so that we can kill corruption.”
In a related development, the Africa Network for Environment & Economic Justice (ANEEJ) has urged stakeholders in the anti-corruption campaign to continually apply pressure on countries holding on to the nation’s stolen wealth to return them.
Executive Director of ANEEJ, Rev. David Ugolor, stated this at the World Anti-Corruption Day held at its Secretariat in Benin City, Edo state.
