ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! President Buhari Blasts Sule Lamido, Describes The Corrupt Presidential Aspirant As A Common Thief

President Muhammadu Buhari, has taken a swipe at the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential aspirant, Sule Lamido, for always attacking his personality during interviews with the Press.

In a reaction to the latest of the interview published on Saturday, Buhari in a statement signed by his Spokesman, Garba Shehu, said that Lamido “is a thief, who stole public funds”.

“It is only in Nigeria, that a leader like Lamido will divert money belonging to the public into his children’s account, then turns round to start pontificating on public morals, in the process subjecting the nation’s honest leadership to daily attacks based on falsehood”, he said.

He added: “It is even worse that such a person facing criminal prosecution, will start going around saying he wants to be President. Is this not one of the reasons why other countries are laughing at Nigeria? This is hooliganism. It is not opposition politics.”

“The nation’s war against corruption spearheaded by EFCC, was incidentally formulated by the past PDP administration. It is a tragic irony that the leaders of the same party are doing their utmost to weaken or destroy it. Watch it; is that why he is seeking to lead the country?

“Time and again, President Buhari had lamented that strong men had destroyed the country’s strong institutions, and that it will take strong men to rebuild them. He deserves the support of everyone to rebuild such institutions, because they serve a common good.”

Buhari further challenged the Presidential candidate, to convince Nigerians that his trenchant attacks against the government and the Judiciary, were not a smokescreen to becloud the atmosphere of his criminal prosecution.

“In his diatribe published in the Vanguard newspaper, last week, it is clear that the former Governor not only set out to mock the President, but the Judiciary, and important national institutions, as part of an orchestrated plot to divert public attention from his scam related cases.

“If President Buhari’s war against corruption as he said was a mockery, what does one say of Governor Lamido’s sworn efforts to sabotage the country’s efforts to rid itself of the cancer of corruption?

“If accountability of public officials is the very essence of a mature democracy, it is indeed ironic that a politician seeking the leadership of the country, is making a mockery of institutions and leaders seeking to entrench that.

“As a country, Nigeria settled for President Buhari, not just as President, but the watchman of people’s wealth. The citizens are happy with that, and the whole world is applauding. The African Union, the AU, just named him as the champion of the war against corruption. Opposition politicians like Governor Lamido, need to come to terms with the fact that their act needs updating.”
