Anti-corruption war: Don’t think you are dealing with infants – CAN tells Buhari


President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN), Rev. Samson Ayokunle has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to extend his anti-corruption war to those around him and stop being one-sided.
He asked Buhari to avoid being partial in his anti-corruption crusade, noting that those who brought him to power were not infants.

Ayokunle gave this charge while speaking in Abuja at the 104th Annual session of the Nigerian Baptist Convention (NBC) on Friday.
He also called on the government to show sincerity in strengthening the local currency.
According to him, “the siege of economic hardship that has almost crippled the lives of Nigerians and increased the rates of suicide might be lifted. Salaries owed the workers all over the nation must be paid without delay. My Bible says that the wages of the workers must not be delayed overnight.
“Government should be more broad-minded on the issue of the fight against corruption because corruption in Nigeria was not restricted to any particular political party or any religion.
“As President Muhammadu Buhari is outward looking he must be inward looking because the church is against corruption and like the former president of Gambia said, let us chase out corruption like mosquitoes. Let us chase corruption out of our country.
“Government should know that they are not dealing with infants. The people that elected them into office have the right to call them to order and call them to account for all their actions. The executive, legislative and Judiciary are not immune from our questioning and we need to audit them.
