Labour seeks Nigerians’support for Buhari’s anti-correuption war


Lagos – The Organised Labour, under the aegis of Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN), on Monday urged Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption campaign in the country.

This is contained in a statement signed by ASCSN National President, Bobboi Kaigama and its Secretary General, Alade Bashir- Lawal in Lagos.

According to the statement, corruption is a cankerworm that has eaten deep into the country and the President needs the support of Nigerians to get rid of it.

The statement said it was sad that the money alleged to have been looted from the treasury was put at more than N11 trillion.

“This is not only outrageous but scandalous. There is the need to reduce corruption to the barest minimum if not completely eradicated in the country’’.

It said that if corruption was wiped out, trillions of naira of public funds that was diverted into private pockets would be deployed for national development.

It urged that the stolen money should be retrieved and those who looted the collective wealth of Nigerians should be made to face the law.

It advised President Buhari to ensure that the anti-graft war was comprehensive and not selective while all recovered funds should be pooled together in a special account.

“The funds should be used for identifiable projects such as electricity supply, good road network, potable water, improved health care, affordable decent housing, functional refineries, free and qualitative education and light rail system’’.
