You Must Also Probe Obasanjo’s Government – SSANU To Buhari

Share it:

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to also extend the probe of corrupt public office holders to the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Obasanjo-BuhariThe Punch reports that the president of SSANU, Mr. Samson Ugwoke, today, Friday, August 28, urged President Buhari not to leave any stone unturned concerning investigating those who looted the country’s treasury. He said this and more while delivering an address at a meeting of the National Executive Council and pre-National Delegates’ Conference of SSANU in Jos, Plateau State. He further urged the president not to be selective in his anti-corruption war.


He said, “The present administration seems to be pursuing an anti-corruption war. Corruption has killed this country. We have heard of billions and trillions of Naira being looted by officers of government and all of them stashed away, not even in our country; not even in our own banks. “They use Nigerian money to grow and improve the economies of other countries, leaving us in poverty. SSANU supports the fight against corruption but with a caveat that Mr. President should pursue whoever has stolen our money to return it to our coffers. “The probe of the looters should not be selective; it should be total; that is the stand of SSANU. It should be total and be extended to 1999, so that those who have killed this country since 1999 would be brought to book.”


The SSANU President also urged the President to revoke the oil licences in the country and set up a commission to preside over them.

Just recently, the presidency shed more light on the planned investigation into the activities of the immediate past government of Goodluck Jonathan. Garba Shehu, Muhammadu Buhari’s special adviser on media and publicity, also disclosed that no one was under probe yet and responded to the accusations of the alleged “selective” probe recently posed by a prominent northern leader, Tanko Yakassai.
