Buhari’s Anti-Corruption War Not Selective – Orji Kalu

Former Governor of Abia State, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu has declared that the anti-corruption war of President Muhammadu Buhari is not selective as perceived in some quarters. According to him, those who are being investigated are those who handled the finances of the country in the last administration adding that the present government is on its rights to demand how the
money was expended. Speaking to newsmen after paying a Sallah visit to former Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida at his Uphill residence in Minna, Kalu said that people are bias in their reasoning if they think the anti-corruption war is selective. “I do not believe that the anti- corruption war by President Buhari is selective. Someone may look at it in perspective that it is selective because it is the people in the previous government that are involved and this is because they are the ones who handled the money during that period”, he said. The former governor who declared support for the fight against corruption however called on the President to pay more attention to the economy of the nation. “I support President Buhari in the fight against corruption but as we are fighting corruption, we should also look at the industrial base of the country. No country can survive with only politics. The
economy is very important to the nation”, he said. He then appealed tothe President to reopen all bureau de change that have been closed down in the country adding that not all of them were used to engage in fraudulent activities. When asked about the health condition of the former military President, Kalu said, “General Babangida is in a perfect condition. He walked with us and took pictures with all of us and we are about 20. So his health is splendid.”
