The former Deputy Spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress, Timi Frank, has stated that most Nigerians are seeing how the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration is dancing naked in corruption both nationally and internationally.
Following the recent report by the United State of America which scored the Buhari government low, Frank appreciated the country for exposing the fact that there had been no significant progress in the fight against corruption by the Buhari government.
The political activist also commended the office of the Auditor General of the Federation for its latest report indicting the presidency and all the MDAs of massive corruption.
Recall that U.S. Department of State had accused the Nigerian government of lagging behind in transparency, the country further stated that Nigeria did not meet the minimum requirements for fiscal transparency.
Timi Frank while reacting to the report described the corruption allegations against top officials as “the true colour of a corrupt and stinking government.”
Frank while commending the report by the U.S. stated that every lie has an expiring date, hence the embarrassing report.
He said the APC’s government had been concocting and disseminating lies and utter falsehoods about increased revenue generation to the tune of N5.3 trillion in 2018 alone but, “that lie has now expired as can be deduced from a leaked memo signed by the SGF, Abba Kyari, querying the Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Mr Babatunde Fowler, about humongous shortfalls and discrepancies in projected revenue.”
He described President Buhari’s administration as the most corrupt in the history of governance in Nigeria.
“It is becoming clearer to Nigerians and the whole world how lies were packaged and sold to Nigerians by the assembly of corrupt individuals in the ruling party.”
“They came in the name of fighting corruption but the majority of their officials are confirmed, public treasury looters. In fact, the only criteria to get an appointment in APC government is for someone to have a record of looting, certificate forgery, thuggery, and violence.”
“During the last general elections, a leader of this government was caught with three bullion vans in his compound allegedly from the Central Bank of Nigeria but up till now, the anti-corruption agencies play blind.”
“The Buhari-led administration overlooks corrupt officials and those engaging in acts of corruption within its ranks. They are however swift-footed in going after members of the opposition over sometimes imaginary corruption allegations. In a matter of days more of their lies will again expire”.
He said that the recent appointment of the Ministers is scandalous, adding that “80 per cent of those who made the list have corruption cases against them in court.”
“But General Buhari decided to reward them with political appointments. This shows that the General lacks integrity and moral standing to talk about corruption because he himself is supervising the most corrupt administration in the history of Nigeria.”
