Fulfill Promise to Fight Corruption or Nigerians’ll Push You Out Within Six Months, Ex-Minister, Gbagi Tells Buhari



By Michael Peters from London
LAGOS MAY 7TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Former Minister of Education, Chief Kenneth Gbagi has enjoined Nigerian President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari to keep to his promise to fight corruption, failure of which the electorate would throw him out of office within six months.
Gbagi who gave the warning on Tuesday in London while addressing the international media maintained that Buhari, based on his pre-election promises to deal with issue of corruption cannot leave those that have looted the Nation’s treasury to move freely on the street without facing the law.
He argued that not doing that would make Buhari regime not to last more than six months as Nigerians will rise up against his none commitment to his electoral promises and pledges, adding that it would also affect his credibility rating.

Gbagi, who is a business tycoonist said the present ruling party did what could better the nation but closed its eyes to the negative actions of corruption by senior executives and ministers in the country who took such flippancy for granted and stole funds belonging to Nigerians for their self-aggrandisement.
According to him, “General Buhari is known as a man of principles, integrity and dedication to his words. This is the time to show that a Nigerian can do and keep promises because they have a legacy and integrity to keep.
“If the President-Elect do not make those fingered of corruption to face the law, that I am afraid the electorates that voted him in will push him out within six months. Any political party that do not do what they promised the voters, will surely kiss the dust. Nigerians are becoming wiser and cleverer with each passing day.”
Gbagi urged Gen. Buhari to use all the full force of the law and spare no strength or effort to recover all the looted funds especially with the latest news on money and fund utilised in the country.
Hear him, “there are some well known high profile ministers and leaders that have mismanaged the economy and fund in their ministries. All monies identified at home and in the international community must be returned.”
He reminded Buhari that issues on education and power sectors need immediate overhauling and strategic innovations.
“These sectors amongst others are very fundamental to the revival of youths which will reduces the level of unemployment and strategic indices to the positive changes expected by the people, Gbagi stressed.
