President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has been described as the most corrupt in the history of Nigeria.
The Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province and Bishop, Enugu Diocese, Anglican Communion, Most. Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma stated this on Monday while addressing newsmen.
According to Chukwuma, the Buhari administration has failed in its fight against corruption in the country.
The cleric lamented that the Buhari administration which promised to fight corruption while taking over power and improve the economy has now worsened the state of affairs in the country.
He further stated that embezzlement and money laundering has increased under the current administration.
The cleric noted that corrupt officials who are indicted and arrested are not being imprisoned.
Chukuma said, “When Buhari was coming in, he promised change, and we embraced him, but rather than what was promised to Nigerians, what we are seeing is worse.
“Corruption has gone to a high level. There is too much embezzlement and money laundering under this government.
“Corrupt officials who are indicted and arrested are not being imprisoned, even those that were imprisoned by the last administration have been granted a pardon.
“We were told about billions of recovered loot, where is it? That’s why I said the government is too corrupt. They are re-looting recovered money.”
