A former Governor of Kaduna State, Belarabe Musa has advised President Muhammadu Buhari not to allow the anti-corruption war to remove him from power.
Belarabe said this in the course of tackling the president over claims that his first attempt in the fight against corruption resulted in his removal as the Head of State back then.
Buhari made this claim in the process of commissioning the new office complex of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in Abuja, yesterday. According to Belarabe, the actions of the president was a pointer that he was yet to learn from experience, especially with regards to the fight against corruption. He expressed surprise on why Buhari was letting corruption fight back under his current administration.
In the course of an interview with Punch, Belarabe said: “I agree that it was corruption that sent him out of power in 1985. But the problem is that why is President Buhari allowing corruption to fight him back again in this present government?
“Why is he not adopting effective measures to tackle corruption in his present government?
“The President seem not to have put the experience from his first government into use in dealing with corruption now.
“With the experience he gained between 1983 and 1985, you expect him to do better and not allow corruption again to lead to his removal.”
