Corruption: Beam your searchlight on past administrations, Buhari urged
“But to serve a deterrent to government officials in the country, the Attorney-General should liaise with the EFCC to commence probe and prosecution of officials of the past administration who structured the contract with P&ID and failed to take corrective measures when it became obvious that the contract was not working.
“It is heart-breaking to read Omokri, a former aide to President Jonathan attributing the failure of the Nigerian government to act promptly and avert this development to failure of leadership by Buhari’s administration. At what point should we as concerned citizens separate politics from leadership so that we can build an ideal society for ourselves? The administration that initiated the contract should have guided it to a logical conclusion if it was well-intended in the first place.
“The narrative by Omokri that President Jonathan sent Diezani, Okonjo Iweala and some other guys to Ireland to negotiate an out of court settlement with P&ID which resulted in P&ID agreeing to take $850million instead of $6billion early 2015 is not enough to excuse to exonerate the administration of its carelessness that has dragged into this mess.
